It was Young last season, Lingard now. There´s a point when criticism turns into sheer bullying.
There's no point in arguing with Lingard apologists. They take every piece of criticism as an agenda against him.
Most of us support the club first and when the senior player of the squad who plays in an attacking position offers feck all for a year then he is fully accountable for the backlash.
Yeah. Expecting something from an attacking player is bullying these days. Do me a favor..
Butt was initially first teamer for how much? Half a season? Then Sir Alex preferred a converted striker in midfield to him. The at one point he moved to Newcastle and.... It speaks volumes of how good the guy was.
Really frustrating how quick people turn on young players nowadays. No patience at all.
Give your feckin' head a shake man. Is this the best you can do now to defend Lingard is drag former players through the mud?
I don't give a feck about lingard. All I said is that he would probably survive under Sir Alex just like Phil, Butt, Oshea and Cleverley did.
Sir Alex would probably hit him on the head with this jlingz nonsense though
He's not a decent squad. He's been below that level as well now for a long time.
I'm not even one of those people who hate his antics off the pitch. I just detest the guy for how poor he is and how he keeps finding his way in the starting lineup. Most frustrating player I've watched at United and at par with Richardson.
That post of mine was for the DDG thread. Don't know how it ended up in here
He can still do it if he wants to
If he was as good a Park, nobody would be complaining.
I'd argue that, after Ryan Giggs he was probably the fittest guy at the club at the time, and we were at our very best going forward when he was making his lung-busting unselfish runs ahead of the ball.
Are we proud the top post on the Manchester United fan forum is “Hating Lingard”?
Squad attacking players should have to contribute numbers. He’s on over 100k a week. Enough said.
He’s on same/similar money to a player like Jao Felix who could progress to become the next best player in the world...
Come next summer we’d get rid if he wasn’t from Manchester.
Can't say whether you're joking or you're being serious writing this in this thread...
Part of the reason why it's at the top is due to people challenging it's controversial title.
He earns more than double.
Psst, he's from Varrington, famous for Wodka
You can use this logic for every crap player.
Bullying? With all due respect, shut up.
Oh, I see I was a bit unclear. I wasn't thinking about his fitness, but his general (technical) skills. When we played with a real zip in our passing, with lots of individual brilliance, he increasingly looked like a less gifted player than the others as the years went on.
He wasn't up there with Beckham and Scholes on a technical level granted, but then very few were/are, but he wasn't underendowed in that department, far from it.
Yes because no one was criticizing Lingard previously, or so.
Well the OP shouldn’t have gone with such an overly emotional thread title.
Are we proud that our starting no.10 can’t score or assist goals?
He's 26, turning 27 end of this year. This is hardly considered young for a footballer.
Hes nearly 27
I dont hate any of our footballers. The only thing I want is a footballer good enough for where we want to be, and in his case he isnt consistant enough
i hear rumours we are going to offer him a contract extension... the world truly has gone mad
he has been there for years and at 27 he should be at his prime.... I wouldn't class him as a youngster......id just class him as overrated
He is young?
Can't get a shot on target in 4 games. As a No.10
Can't believe people still fall for the tired "Lingard is a youngster" joke.
Seeing this thread bumped makes me think "What's he done now?"
Ole likes him a lot. No surprise there.
Where’s the joke? Young n’learnin.
I dont think it matters if he is or not to be honest - i'm not sure many players' performances increase by people just getting on their back (wasn't suggesting you personally were by the way). Much better to support them while they're at the club.
Surely this isn't anything new as it's been talked about it for a while
Why would I hate him, he doesn't select himself of coach himself or decide tactics. He is a bit of a twat outside the football pitch, but then most footballers are not that smart.
He isn’t young, but at the same time, for his age he’s relatively inexperienced because he didn’t really break through until he was 22 or so. You compare that to players like Rooney, Torres and Lukaku that were playing regularly at 16/17.
It might be the least funniest joke ever, too.
