Interesting to hear Jose's comments when asked about Martial's improvement. He spoke about the outside influences effecting the progress and if you listen to the coaching staff and not outsiders, agents l assume, you will improve and get game time.

Yes it's all down to stupid martial listening to his agent. Nothing to do with you know, signing 500k rubbish and benching martial for most of the 2nd half of the season or constantly having digs at him going as far as Mourinho moaning about him staying back with his ill wife after birth of his child. It Definitely had nothing to do with Sanchez starting game after game while being worst player on the pitch while few bad passes saw martial subbed off and benched for next 3-4 games or Mourinho wanting Willian and doing his best to push martial out of the door.

It's all down to stupid martial listening to his evil agent.

That’s a bit unfair CSM. I don’t think many of us expected AS to be this bad when he signed. He was one of the top 5 players in the premier league at Arsenal. But here he doesn’t get goal side enough. And he is never going to regain his form if you don’t play him. We have all seen Martial be lazy in tracking back and be inconsistent over a few games. Yes, he has the talent and is getting into better areas to support the team but he needs to do more of what he did yesterday to become a regular starter at Man Utd. You can’t disagree that Martials agent stirred up things in the summer saying he wants to leave when the player himself has said he has never had any issues with Mourinho.

Martial had a storming game.

He put in a shift defensively. Stunning finish for the goal. My favourite was his wing play when he set up the Mata header with a left foot cross - if he adds that to his game consistently then he is definitely number 1 choice. If he slots the 1 on 1 then it would have been a perfect performance.

Ryan, i don't think anyone disputed sanchez’s quality when he signed for us. But what was the logic in signing a third left winger when we had two players who were doing well in that position.

To further compound this error, sanchez was continually played when his performances were poor. For a supposedly ruthless manager like mourinho to put up with such poor performances week after week and then treating martial like he had to perform every time he played otherwise he wouldn't see first team action for weeks is definitely going to put his nose out of joint.

Good thing woodward with no football knowledge stepped in and kept martial and jose didn't get his way.

Martial is in a good vein of form and according to the manager he has changed his attitude and work ethic to a large degree.
I think the manager got it right yesterday when he said when players are not playing well the blame lies 50/ 50 between the manager and players. Also when a player turns it around the creditgoes 50/ 50 between coach and player.
Shaw and martial have started doing more of what the manager wants them to do and they are reaping the rewards.
Jose is being more tolerant and is trusting them and is reaping the rewards.
Its not all a 1 way street. If shaw and martial had not changed their ways and met the manager at least half way then they would still not be playing.
The players are doing more of what the manager demands and they are playing weekly it looks like everyone deserves some credit.

Good post that Ken and as they say . You can't clap with one hand.

Ken I don't think you can credit Mourinho with anything good martial has done, shaw yes but not martial. The martial we are seeing recently is the same martial we saw last season in the first half. You give him game time and a bit of freedom and he gives you good albeit at times inconsistent performances.

Mourinho refused to give him any game time 2nd half of the season for martial to do anything. Also if Mourinho had his way we would have William instead of martial right now and given how matic has performed we know how Mourinho's 30 yr old fetish turns out for us.

Wouldn't Willian have played on the right?

29 Oct 2018 18:05:11
At right back, Mort.

Martial is back playing as well as he was before he got dropped for Sanchez.

Great to see 2 very talented young players showing what they can do .

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately martial wants to do it somewhere else jred, he was very good yesterday mate and gave coleman a nightmare..

29 Oct 2018 19:05:00
Coincidence that’s a Shaw and Martial play well together as they have formed an understanding over the last 2-3 seasons, or just fluke.

Rashford right, Martial left, give Sanchez a go up top and rotate with Lukaku. Nice.
