Has Rasford progressed as a player over the season?

Agree3 Disagree3

I think he's gone backwards as a player. maybe due to tactics or something else but defiantly not improved at all. there could be something else behind the scenes we will never no.

20 May 2018 10:59:38
Got to be honest he hasnt.

20 May 2018 11:15:11
gone backwards for sure. he is talented but i don't think he is as good as people think he is. i don't think he is a natural finisher and his decision making is poor. hopefully he can develop these but i think martial is far more talented than him. I like rashford and on form he can be very effective and direct. but i think that needs to be on the left rather than centrally. tactics are not helping him but maybe he is just going through a a slump that young players go through. a loan would do him the world of good.

Rashford has had a poor season. His free kicks, corners, link up play, and awareness have generally been poor. There has been the constant feeling that our midfield and forwards are all playing as individuals rather than as a team, and nowhere has that been more apparent than in Rashford's game.

It not unusual for a young player to have a down year after a good one. The question is whether it's a normal blip or something more fundamental. Is it a result of bad tactics, a failure to adapt to the tactics, a lack of team mentality in the dressing room and on the field, or does he just not have what it takes?

Park3 do u think martial has improved over the season.

20 May 2018 11:39:28
Raahford lacks composure infront of goal and is greedy at times but he is young and may or may not improve.

I think if Martial was given as much game time as him he wouldve done a whole lot better.

20 May 2018 12:33:40
No he hasn't improved but whos fault is that?

Do we place all the blame on jose mourinho or can rashford take a little but of personal responsibility for his development?

20 May 2018 12:40:38
I may be in the minority here but i honestly don't see what everyone sees in Rashford. All he does is run around and you don't need talent for it. I don't remember who it was but one of the posters called him similar to welbeck which at the time i thought was unfair to Rashford but now i think it is really unfair to Welbeck. If he wasnt English he wouldn't be anywhere near the team. Rashford seems more David Bellion than Ronaldo.

Jred I think martial has improved. Up until Xmas he was our player of the season for me. Sanchez signing has displaced him. But I did expect martial to take the challenge of Sanchez head on and expected him to step up his game. Disappointed he has come across a bit sulky and not really fought for his place. But I don’t think he has had as many opportunities. If it was between keeping rashford and martial it would be martial for me. Want neither to leave and love having a local lad play for united. But martial is more talented and has a higher ceiling for me. What do you think jred?

20 May 2018 13:01:24
I think both need a run of games .
Martial is the better player imo and was playing well and scoring just before we bought Sanchez.
Looks like he is being forced out to me .
But 2 much chopping and changing for me.

I think Rashford has the talent and a willing attitude. He has had a difficult season, for sure. I would put it down to the following:
1 - Jose does not have the patience waiting for a Rashford or Martial to deliver, thus his reason to buy Sanchez.
2 - Sanchez has not only taken minutes from Rashford and Martial, he has been really poor. He has not scored, and the play going forward is worse with him, since he holds onto the ball too much.
3 - If Lukaku will always be first choice at center forward, then Rashford or Martial have to operate from the wings, and both seem to be better on the left.
4 - When Rashford does get minutes, he probably feels more pressure to deliver.
All of this worked against him, but I still hope he can come through and deliver. But under Mourinho, I have my doubts.

20 May 2018 13:20:03
Not a Mourinho type of player. Hindering his process. Needs a more attack minded coach to get more out of him.

20 May 2018 13:30:16
Yeh can’t argue with that jred. Agree zidaniel I was all for the Sanchez signing but it’s getting ridiculous now the double standards with some players. Smalling, Young jones and Sanchez can play poorly and keep their spot. Martial, rashford shaw lindelof bailly are not seen for weeks. All of the latter would improve us and we would be a much better side. These decisions are baffling. My confidence was knocked in Jose yesterday. I can take losing but that team selection was laughable, especially the defence. I will give Jose another year but he is only thin ice if he continues playing those players simply not good enough for united.

20 May 2018 14:27:41
Every time he is about to receive the ball, dribble the ball or pass the ball - I think "this is going to result in lost possession", just occasionally he does something great, which probably amazes him more than it does me.

He looks like a lost sheep, with a wolf showing him directions!

20 May 2018 14:35:18
The question we should ask is were martial and Rashford improving up until Sanchez signed? Since then they have gone backwards for sure.

20 May 2018 18:52:29
I love Rash but he has been poor lately, but no poorer than Sanchez who has been awful. We had 2 young exciting talents who were taking no turns and dong ok, we sign Sanchez and since then they have struggled. Hmmm.
