In terms of ball playing as a centre back, is there anyone as good as him? I can’t think of one off the top of my head. I definitely don’t think there’s anyone who fizzes their passes as well as he does. Makes such a difference when someone hits their passes like that.
I think Hummels, Blind, Alaba, Laporte, Torres are some of the best out there in terms of passing. Not surprised most of them are lefties.

Can’t remember if I’ve already commented on his EL performance but he’s very good. His quality is obvious. I do think his height presents some issues but the positives he’s shown so far certainly outweigh that.

Really glad we bought this fella. Future captain if he goes on like this.

Gone back to sample some of the steamin' hot takes from after the first couple of games:
Sorry, but this guy is not going to make it in PL. Not just for us, for any PL team. He will be targeted and destroyed.

Waste of money, and for a position we didn't really need players. One of the worst transfers ever for us.
He won't make it as a CB here.
No way he will play CB again for us. Easily bullied here. Should try him as DM just to recoup any value left for him.
What an awful idea it was to sign a CB this short and this shit from the Dutch league for £55m. And people want us to pay £80m for Anthony?
None of these people have posted a single word in this thread since just after the Brentford game. :lol:

Also, a shout out to @GledTheRed for being a very fair, equal opportunities knee-jerker:
Looks shit.
Absolutely shite. Add him to the deadwood next summer.
...
Absolutely LOVED that.
Love this guy, miles better than the ponderous plodding Harry & Victor.

Mabye someone could post his Aerial stats, but so far he doesn't seem to struggle at all in his aerial game. His stats before coming here were better than some CB playing in top clubs, like Dias and others so I don't think it will be issue.

Also he might lose an important duel once in a long while but he will make up for it with all of his positives. Great aggression, fantastic ability tokeep the ball under pressure, passing and vision. But really he's a great all round defender and his positioning and aggression gives him the edge to win many balls for which others wouldnt contest..

Just hope he will keep his consistency with such style of play buthe seems like a great self motivator so there's big hope it's not just a turn of form currently

:D People just dont watch football outside of the UK. Those current Eredivisie players are doing damn well in the hardest league in the world. I said this before he touched a ball for United in this thread, he will become a fan favorite and is a future captain!
So glad to see him shine at UTD. Dude is super likeable and a brilliant player.

Fair play to GledtheRed.

Well obviously I was wrong in my assessment. Which is not a surprise, I am usually wrong in my assessments and predictions! This is one of those times I am glad I was wrong!

Another example why its not smart to write of a player after a few matches. I hope and expect that in the near future this type of compilation can also be made from post that are already writing Casemiro off.

What’s mental is the amount of obsession in pushing this guy into CDM. We didn’t pay that amount of money for ETH to stick him in a position we didn’t buy him for.

To be honest, I have more hope with players from the Dutch league than I have with players from Bundesliga now! Everything from the German league just turns to crap except for the abnormal blondie.

I realized they haven't posted in this thread since Brentford too and many others. This is where it all becomes weird, imagine you were so quick to dismiss a signing just after 2 games and he comes very good and can't even praise him because you will now look stupid after convincingly saying he is shit and won't make it here :lol: :lol: Sad really

No what's mental is you clearly saying after the Brentford game that we won't make it and that if ETH had been manager for a year he wouldn't consider buying Martinez :lol:

All of a sudden you are a fan? instead of supporting and giving new players time you were bashing him left right and center

I absolutely love him. Lifts me every time I see him going into a tackle. It's the motivational talk every time my young lad steps on to the hurling field these days...'Come on buddy, remember, Martinez, not Maguire!'.

Might be slight hyperbole, but I'm not sure I can remember a CB in modern times as comfortable on the ball and as good a passer. I suppose Mascherano and Busquets when they played as CBs

We had one at our club not so long ago in Blind. Arguably a better passer. Martinez is much more mobile and aggressive though.

Yea Blind had good passing ability and nice long balls, but for CB he looked like a boy from whom you could steal an icecream and he'd just nod and walk away. If you try that with Martinez, he'd murder you instantly.

His biggest test is coming (Haaland ofc), and luckily it's not his first time against him.

He is a massive difference to the delayed play Lindelof and Maguire have shown for a few years. His passing as a CB has been absolutely spot on

Obviously Mr. Smartpants, we should appoint you as head of our transfer strategy :lol:
We’d have had a very strange and shit team if we’d done that over the last thirty years.
