and it was deflected anywayJust cannot warm to lingard. I would love to know what goes on in his head. He goes the best part of a calendar year without scoring, he's then selected for a game where most of the 1st team squad have been rested. By process of elimination he has the honour of captaining for the evening he then celebrates his goal against a Kazakhstan pubs league team like he's scored a last minute winner at anfield. By all means celebrate, but come on its 10 mins into a virtual meaningless game. I could understand the celebration if it was a debutant but this joker? Give me a break. My point is I can see why he is despised by many on here for the simple reason he brings it on himself. (oh and his lack of ability also doesn't help). I'm sure in years gone by one of the proper senior player's would of pulled him to one side and told him to concentrate on his football and not give any more ammo to the haters.
Apart from Lingard's goal. Lingard has to go, so selfish and has poor decision making and alway go for personal glory rather than creating chances for the team. This is how he teaches them? Running and shoot outside the box? He's in No.10 role ffs.
I don't want to see Lingard ever, never again.
At least he's saleable, there's plenty of clubs who'll pay £25m + for him. I'd like to think that United's plan is to bring Sancho in and sell Lingard but only time will tell.He's not better than Angel Gomes at 10.
Saw your usual dribbling down blind alleys, poor passing and poor decision making. Obviously looked at the side and thought he was the big man so tried doing everything himself. Not good enough. Imagine being a young player and seeing him as your captain? Embarrassing.
4 key passes. Most on the pitch.I judge 10's on their attacking contribution first. His was non-existent. We had full control for most of the match and what did he create?
He held us back tonight. With our total control in midfield, a proper No.10 creates chances for the strikers and helps put the game to bed. With Lingard so anonymous as 10, all we could do is try to hold on until the end and see the game out. Thankfully we managed to do it, but we need much more from our 10.
He might have been ok defensively with his pressing but it's nowhere near enough to offset his complete lack of attacking contribution game after game.
That's one way of spinning his lack of attacking contribution i suppose.he was great tonight. A football players player. He works hard for the team, makes spaces for team mates, helps the team play well even though he doesn’t get huge numbers on assists or goals. Great display in my view
This. He's a pivotal player, until we find a world class 10.he was great tonight. A football players player. He works hard for the team, makes spaces for team mates, helps the team play well even though he doesn’t get huge numbers on assists or goals. Great display in my view
I can't show you. I'm going off whoscored.com. They may well have been short square passes, but a key pass, according to whoscored is the final pass leading to a shot at goal from a teammate. You asked what he created. Regardless of whether it's a short square pass or not, he's still creating something.Show me the chances please if you can. I would love to see them. As all i saw him doing was short square passes on the ball.
We scored goals from a keeper's howler & penalty. We absolutely dominated midfield, yet what chances did we actually create? I wonder who's fault that was?we won the game 2-1. Played great. Lingard was central to it.
we made a lot of chances today we had around 8 shots at goal. He played well. If you dont like that I feel very sorry for you but he played well and any sensible person could see that. GoodnightWe scored goals from a keeper's howler & penalty. We absolutely dominated midfield, yet what chances did we actually create? I wonder who's fault that was?
You're right, he was central to our play, central to the black hole in the final third of the pitch, that is.
