Despite his mistake yesterday, Still think he's a good player to have in the squad.

His next move will be slashing the price of his JLingz brand aftershave for the 10th time, which I imagine is now about as marketable as raw sewage.

Think he'll be sending his esports team giftboxes of Jlingz merch just to get rid of some of it.

He probably has a room or two in his house full of the tat.

I wouldn’t start him over any of the attacking players we have and that includes the likes of Amad, Elanga and Mejbri. He isn’t signing a new contract so why give him a chance when he is going to leave for free anyway. That time should go to a younger player so that player can develop.

But knowing Ole he will start him against West Ham cause his argument will be he needs to get his confidence back and he knows West Ham.

Hope he plays in the next game vs WHU. Needs to get the mistake out of his system and deserves to play ahead of many other fan favourites

He definitely doesn't. He's had the most chances out of anyone at the club.

Like who?

He deserves less than what he's had so far to be fair. If Rashford and/or Cavani are fit he won't ever get on the pitch and rightly so.

Will be played until he is convinced hes a first team player and signs a new contract, then he will disappear into the reserves again.

I imagine he will want his contract to have a minimum number of minutes if he is to stay

He will sign a contract with a nice pay rise and hang around the fringes of the squad for another 4 years. Just like last years Bailly extension

I think Ole is trying to get Moyes into a panic mode to force Westham into signing him... but in reality Moyes probably doesnt even remember who was "that lad with J signs and weird handshakes".

He's taking the club for a ride and we're dumb enough to go along with it.

Might as well give him the 'Fred the Red' suit to dress-up in every home game.

I don't think this is anything like the Smalling and Sanchez situations.

Ole never appeared to like these players despite his words they're in his plans. He obviously loves Lingard and wants him to stay at the club in any capacity.

Ole confirmed that he wants Lingard to stay. Now you got your answer why Lingard decided to reject WH.
What exactly do you expect Ole to say about one of his players?
He cant call him a prat and tell him to sod off can he :houllier: .

Bloody hell, this denial is insane now. This is not about what he said or not; this is confirmation by manager himself that he (manager) wants that Lingard to stay.
Big question here was are Ole's words during pre season about Lingard just diplomatic or true. Well, there were true. He is the one who wants Lingard to stay (and by that to get new contract). And that was the reason why Lingard refused WH. This is basic logic, ffs.

I know exactly what the manager said :lol: .Once again he's asked in a presser about Lingard, what DO YOU expect him to say?

I think that we are talking about two different things. Ha ha.
Today he didn't said anything wrong. He was asked about players who he rates and wants in his squad.

'Yeah, Jesse made a mistake but he'll bounce back, he's focused and working hard. We're relaxed about his contract situation, we'll see what happens'.

Something like that would have been nice. Instead it seems like he genuinely wants him to stay here and even play. Which is... not great news.

I think with Jones, Bailly, Pereira and now Lingard this club is demonstrating that it has a very clear policy of not wanting players to walk away for free so long as being contracted to the club means they can appear on the balance as an asset of some value.

The fact that it ends up costing more money to keep them (money that is wasted if they are not playing) or the fact that it probably influences the manager’s selections as he wouldn’t want players to become disgruntled and negatively affect the whole team’s morale, do not seem to be strong enough disincentives for the practice to cease.

The practice seems beyond stupid to me, but then I’m not a suit in the boardroom so what do I know? It might be genius.

Because the past has proven that to be that case? That´s why he left on loan to West Ham? What an idiotic, absolutely no sense comment. Lingard looks to be in the form of his life and sure he´ll get game time.

Chelsea (the saviours of football) fan.
For the people who dislike Lingard, what would make you happier, him signing a contract extension or him rejecting one? We're going to assume time machines don't exist and he can't move to West Ham last month.

I kinda think he'll get pelters for signing ("no ambition, bleeding the club dry to sit on the bench") and also shit for refusing ("running down his contract, taking the piss").

Of course he should sign, but not on stupid wages that makes him unsellable. There will be plenty of buyers if he fails to get playing time at United.

Continuing to reject contract offers and leaving on a free, but we all know this will never happen.

It's United's fault for not being insistent in the summer and forcing him out. An adequate offer of £10-15m would have come in and we should have just taken it. If he refused to move, then a season in the U23s it would be.

We will offer a new contract and he will accept it. Ultimately making him unsellable for years to come due to no clubs suitable to his ability being able to afford his wages. It's all a PR exercise right now to make him look like he's considering what is best for his career. If we stuck to our guns and only offered contracts with a salary decrease, he would no doubt agree by the end of the season. United is the greatest stage for his ego and 'brand'. He won't walk away easily.

The problem is not what Lingard wants, or what Lingard does, or even what *we* think of Lingard.

The problem is that our club does not know what it wants. If the club wants to keep Lingard (and Pogba) they should have signed new contracts in May. If they don't sign, or if the club does not want to keep them, they should have been sold last summer, for whatever money.

It is a major problem that such a great club lets players run into the last year of their contracts. This is the root of the problem. We can't blame the players, they just want the best for themselves. We should blame the club management for these situations.

What has dislike got to do with anything?
For both Lingard and Manchester United, him staying is not a good move.
For Manchester United, he is not good enough, and for Jesse Lingard, he will be found out more often than not.
