Lingard is monumentally poor at football though.You've given Lingard shit for years. What does that say about your bias compared to Scholes?
Actually when you analyze Martial's game, he doesnt move like your traditional striker but what he does is that he is adaptable and other aspects of his game are superior to a normal striker. Right now he fits the team to a T because it provides a foil for Rashford and Greenwood who themselves are not traditional wingers nor strikers. I suspect Sancho is in thesame mould.Exactly what I've been saying!
Shit which he has mostly deserved , for years his output has simply not been good enough and pundits were right to call him out on it , that is their job. To see things as they are not how they would like them to be.He has a point though and you are fighting a lost battle here. Scholes has given Martial shit for years now.
They didn't call out British players when they deserved it though which was mainly his point. Yes Martial has deserved some of the criticism he received (not all and not to that extent though). But I don't like it when they put a blind eye to others because of nationality.Shit which he has mostly deserved , for years his output has simply not been good enough and pundits were right to call him out on it , that is their job.

He has been a different player in the last few months , his attitude , workrate and output are a couple of levels up from where they were. It is only natural in these circumstances that opinions of him will change.
But that does not mean they were wrong for calling him out when he was not performing as he is now.
Deary me Deery...I’ll back him as long as he’s here, it’s not like he has been a massive failure. He’s given us some great moments and important goals.
I wouldn’t really want to sell him either unless it’s crazy money as he is a great squad member to have.
Still can’t see him being an Aguero or Kane type player a real go to man, but more a Lacasette type...
He was playing as a winger and only played about half of the minutes, if that, in all 3 of those seasons. Whenever Martial has played consistently, he has delivered."Player X gets criticized when he doesn't play well and gets praise when he plays well" shocker.
The guy had 8,11 and 12 goals in last 3 seasons. I don't find it shocking or blame, if some fans had given up on him.
At times you need to make yourself available to be serviced. He's been pretty much anonymous thus far this season. Can and needs to do better.Needs to up his work rate, but I'd refrain from being knee jerk.
Hasn't had much service. Would expect him to step it up another notch next weekend.
One doesn't play and the other hasn't played for us yet.By the end of next summer, we'll have no Ighalo, no Cavani unless we extend and only Martial and Greenwood as a possible option. Will have to make a big call at the end of the season.
Ole will just play Rashford in the center and van de Beek at the left, of Fernandes which would mean Pogba moves forward and Fred or McTominay take the other midfield spot.One doesn't play and the other hasn't played for us yet.
Our problem is still the same as now, we're fecked the moment Martial isn't playing well because he's the only real option upfront with how young Mason is.
It's rinse and repeat for people and their favorite players. Or the astroturfing team employed by these players.It all seems to be going back to square one. The same old story of some form, then out of form or injury or both and then some form again.
Sometimes it is the evil manager, sometimes it is not playing him in his favorite position, sometimes it is team mates not at his level, sometimes coming back from injury, whatever be the reason/excuse, things always seem to go up for sometime before going down.
After a point, it is all tiresome.
