Most reasonable people know to expect a backup. He's here to lay the ball off and contribute not score goals. Another spectrum of the problem is the stupidity of putting down our other established attackers down for not helping him be a better player. I mean, antony and rashford should not be blamed for not crossing to him. He's here to help the attack not become the focal point. I also think we should keep him in the back up role instead of the kneejerks asking to be a starter. That's just setting him up to fail because he can't rank great if we were to start using starting player expectations.The fans do it everytime, big up potential signings to no end and ending up tearing them apart when they don’t meet that misplaced expectation.
You have to feel for him, it’s not his fault that he’s a rather average journeyman striker who spent all of his career to date at clubs nowhere near the size of Utd, and here he is being eviscerated by things outside of his control.
