Its gotten to the point where I just wish he was someone else's problem now. As with Pogba, I just feel fatigued with the Marcus Rashford show. Pundits always wondering why he's not being picked, why we aren't trying to work him back into form, seemingly oblivious to the fact he's been absolutely atrocious for over a season. I don't care if he's an academy lad or there was a point where he managed decent numbers, I'm just sick of his PR machine doing the rounds every week. He's not achieved anything of note in his footballing career, and yet we're made to believe we're the problem. Get rid.
Yeah, the media's exasperation at him not playing is probably the second worst thing about him now, the worst being him leaking stuff about "his teammates being baffled he isn't playing" or "Rashford considering his future" every time he starts on the bench and produces another low-effort shitshow coming off it.

Get rid, the lad is done. Having said that we won’t get rid the club will offer him a new contract and the PR machine surrounding him starts again. ‘Brand united’

Following on from that post above...

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/marcus-rashford-manutd-transfer-rangnick-26623725


"Fernandes was more involved but the Portuguese squandered two big chances which ultimately cost the Red Devils two precious points, and the top four looks more of a pipe dream now than a possibility. Rashford, watching on from the bench, may have felt he could have put them away.

And when he did finally come on, the 24-year-old looked devoid of confidence. He was barely involved as United struggled to hold on for a draw. Few could blame him at this point for struggling to muster up the motivation to come on and prove his manager wrong, when there was clearly no belief from his manager that he could find the winner."



Even for Rashford's PR and their brain-dead tabloid mouthpieces this is fecking galling.

Firstly because one of those two chances Bruno squandered still ended in a goal. But just the rank delusion and idiocy in the other bold points, beggars belief.
He really has a good PR team.

Jones should employ a good PR team. " Manchester United players are baffled why Jones is not starting in every match. They say Sir Alex said he is the next Duncan Edwards. Jones looked devoid of any confidence as he sat on the bench.

And it is Fernandes' fault.

Striker is where he belongs. The less he does in build up, the better. Because the guy can't pass, can't cross, and can't dribble. All he knows is to shoot, that's a striker. I'm more upset to see Rashford not creating chances for our striker due to his poor pass, poor cross, and poor decision making than being not clinical to play as a striker.

A striker who also can't head, can't play with his back to goal, cannot link, & is only useful for the pumped ball in behind... wonderful stuff.

How about sticking him on the bench where he belongs, then getting rid?

Name a striker/CF who cannot head a ball well? And Marcus's off ball work rate has plummeted. You'd think his work rate should be between closer to Bruno or Cavani when fit, but it is closer to Martial.

Maguire, Rashford, and Martial are top of the list of players to ship out in the summer. They have had enough chances. Let them be successful elsewhere if they can. Club's needs above anything

I tell you something. Even Jones coming off the bench and playing as a CF would be better than Rashford now.

Tell me about it, his attitude's been a complete disgrace. I hope he does go just like Martial, then he'll come back to reality and realise just how easy he's had it here.

United have let Rashford down by over-working him and not providing the elite coaches to make him a better player, but sources have also said that the club have, over the past 12 months, attempted to persuade Rashford to reduce his off-field work for good causes in order to focus more on regaining his best form, but so far, he has chosen to maintain his twin-track approach to commitments on and off the field.

As it is he is worse than Dan James.
Not far off...James has played 2200 PL minutes this year, while Marcus has only played 971. James has 8 total goal contributions (4 goals/4 assists) in many more minutes than Marcus, who has 4 goals/2 assists.

But Marcus has only started and finished a full match twice in the PL. All 4 of his league goals came from the bench, both of his assists came as a starter.

Rashford has gone from talk on Mbappe's level (right or wrong) down to his position being taken by Elanga when the club is without Greenwood. Yet Marcus's PR team and noise from his camp are confused as to why he's not starting, let alone getting more playing time.

Absolute bollocks. Marcus was overworked and played through injury last year, but he had a choice to say no, but he didn't and the team allowed him to play through the pain and then join up with England during the Euros. Then he delayed his surgery.

There's nothing stopping Marcus from hiring his own personal trainer and footballing coach outside of United for him to work on particular parts of his game. Nothing is stopping him. Talk to the club, tell them. No reports saying he asked nor hasn't been offered extra training or sessions by the club for him to improve. But he's not doing it. He's not fully committing himself to make himself a better footballer, whether that's a 'special coach' (what about your other teammates?) or mental health coach (which may already be in the team previously, but Rangnick hired on a sports psychologist in December). Ralf came out a week or two before the international break and shot down the notion Marcus hasn't gotten enough time to show what he can do. And that's on top of him training every day under Rangnick since December. He's being outperformed in training and he's having a hard time translating training onto matchdays, which hasn't been the case for his fellow teammates.

How can people believe this type of crap written by the media...but then this is ESPN and they don't care about football, never had, never will.

While I believe the fault is his own, I do somewhat agree with that sentiment. Rashford and Martial both looked incredible as youngsters under LVG who was a very technical coach. We then fecked around with managers who weren't really progressive coaches at all for years.

It's a shame, I don't think we'll ever get to see how good they could have been with some proper coaching and mentoring

Even when we don't believe anything written out there, if one of these things is true, it's damning.

Rashford signed his current contract under Ole, so either he's Ole out all along, or noone would buy this elite coach excuse. No self-esteemed established elite coach would come to become Ole's subordinate.

Ole did run himself into ground, but why he's letting team mouth off now he's getting more rest? Are they implying unrecoverable damage? Then why not focus on football only?

Whilst there is truth to that with Rashford I I wonder how much progressive football suits him as he thrives in counter attack footy and isn't the most 'tight' in his game. And both haven't exactly set the world alright from their individual perspective when it comes to effort and drive.

Newcastle does...but Rashford probably won't leave England. He's too committed to the country, unless he feels like he can do a Beckham and be influential in different countries...but then Becks has a competitiveness, drive, commitment, and talent that Marcus doesn't have.

Really? I think he would absolutely leave England if his situation continues, complete change of scenery might help him, but I'm not sure if I can see him join another English team, maybe this is a different time now where it will be more accepted, especially since at this point I can't see how United fans will consider it a big loss, even though he is an academy lad which always sucks when it doesn't work out after a bright start.

We never know really.

I meant you see Mahrez, Sterling, Grealish who are more technical efficient than Rashford all had found some rough patch under Pep. Then we saw Sane got cashed out. Gabriel Jesus career low stagnate. Good progressive coach ain't charity worker either. There is certain level of expectation for effort.

Even when look at someone less extreme than Pep like Poch, you can still find players like Dele Alli who had meteoric rise then dropping off the cliff and never recover. Davinson Sanchez their expensive CB signing never really meet the expectation, or Trippier had a stinker season after last World Cup and which got sold. Trippier blamed Tottenham for pushing him to play when he needed treatment!

Klopp had a young Immobile from Serie A, but failed to solve the mystery why he is not performing outside of Italian league despite he has all the right attribute. Didn't develop Perisic at Dortmund for how useful his later role turned out to be. Perisic had to learn the hard way failing for years as a poor man Robben, until he buckled up his idea and become a team player, playing a supporting role, and ending up a hard worker from a selfish lazy player he used to be.

What done is done. I don't see how at their age, Martial and Rashford are right in throwing in the towel and self pitying. It would only confirm that they indeed have weak mentality.

Wrong. They looked great because they run and give their all, not because it's LVG.

Rashford might not be neymar but he still could be a good footballer if he gives an arse about football

Good post. THat "0.0016%" tweet really shows that they thought they've "made" it and just stop progressing.

What do you expect from no service? He had his chance to score the winner but Elanga ruined it.
No service my balls, he came on as an old impact sub and made one good run up the right wing then did nothing for 40 minutes until he bumbled his way through at the end. If you look at someone like Son he’s constantly on the ball running defenders getting shots off and creating chances, this is the standard we should expect .

Just seen him offering support to LVG via social media.
While I might be clutching at straws here, what the feck happened to giving the guy a call and offering your best wishes? Why does it need to be on social media?

(of course the answer is simple, every post generates money)

If it didn't happen publicly on social media, it didn't happen at all.

It's strange and I can't really relate to it, but it's more of a generational thing than a Rashford thing. And who is to say he didn't reach out privately first? Of all our Rashford related worries, this is pretty harmless.

The media really are coming to Rashford's defence in their droves. I've seen a few that admit he's become dispensible, but why are so many outlets trying to protect him to such levels?

Call a spade a spade, and that he's been awful this season. This "throwing Rangnick and Ole under the bus" rubbish is why we view our team as toxic, and we won't ever progress if the players blame everyone but themselves for how they are performing.
