Gomes took c80% of the corners for us yesterday and forget beating the first man, he couldn't get the ball of the ground most times. If Ashley Young had taken such corners, he would have been castrated here. Just saying.

Rashford would make a good living in anything that doesn't involve putting something in the back of the net. I am sure he would be a great goalkeeper because he doesn't let the ball go into the net.

I don’t think anyone here wants to castrate Young.

Losing a little faith in Rashford, can't explain but it isn't happening and he has stalled a lot. The young lads played okay last nite with gomes movement and Tuanzebes speed/ power only being outshone by greenwoods composed finish. Rojo put a shift in and matic was more mobile than all of last season but the opposition was not the greatest. Still 3 points and some positives to move on with.

20 Sep 2019 17:40:24
I seem to remember Tuanzebe getting on the end of a couple of those Gomes corners.

20 Sep 2019 18:04:00
But Shan mate, you've always been a huge Rashford fan.

21 Sep 2019 04:57:52
True Tony. that's the reason i didn't call for him being shown the door. I just gave a choice of another position for him in the team. So when de gea leaves, we still have rashford to stop all the goals.

21 Sep 2019 06:24:05
You know m a fan, but I’m finding him disappointing right now. His profligacy was forgiven by moments of brilliance but they seem to have dried up. I think he has huge talent but it isn’t happening at the moment. I said on another post to play him wide and see how Greenwood does in the middle. Scoring goals is a problem and Greenwood seems to know how to do it. Not every game obviously but worth a try.

I still think Rashford will come good, I think it’s in his head right now. He needs to be instinctive and just get on with it, stop shooting from 40 yards out or stand looking at a defender thinking about how to go past him. Just go past him!

21 Sep 2019 08:22:32
I like the way Rashford is given "time" to deliver, you know. To "find himself" again. To let his "talent" shine through etc. Man has been playing in the Premier League for four seasons but hasn't progressed yet he is being gassed up as the next Ronaldo de Lima.

If Pogba or Lukaku had missed those chances and several more like Rashford did this and previous seasons, the guillotine would have been sharpened.

Just like Pogba's penalty miss that birthed an uproar and a week later, you could hear the crickets.

Like I've said countless times, Rashford is not a solution to our striking conundrum.

Take it or leave it, Martial is head and shoulders ahead of our strikers and second place doesn't even go to Rashford - Mason Greenwood in case you're wondering.

21 Sep 2019 11:02:40
Martial is our best Cf that said rash is still getting chances so the goals will come .
When he stops getting chances that is the time to worry.

21 Sep 2019 11:13:39
Rashford needs to accept the player he is, and work on his all round game.

He isn’t a central striker, but can develop into a modern left wing forward. The issue at the moment is that the team is overstocked in this type of player. James plays his best on the left, and I’m not convinced that Martial offers enough centrally either - he has zero aerial threat, and struggles to occupy central defenders.

Greenwood will be a good striker, but I’m not comfortable with sticking a child into the thick of it and expecting them to lead our attack. Despite Lukaku’s limitations, he was the best striker at the club, and would have been key in games like Thursday when weaker teams sit back to nullify our pace.

The reality is that Ole listened to Rashford’s preference to play centrally, rather than recognising that this isn’t where his talents are. A new striker should be a priority in January.

21 Sep 2019 11:57:11
Yaz, maybe because he’s so young? He’s been playing for 4 seasons yet he’s still only 21. Or maybe because he has shown some great flashes. We all know he’s having a dry spell but he’s essentially still a kid.

21 Sep 2019 12:20:32
When Ole first came in Rashford was absolutely slamming them in. His goal rate in Ole's first 10 or so games was outrageous. So you can't blame Ole for seeing something in rashford that you can't. And I'm sorry but this narrative that Lukaku was better than our current strikers is rubbish. Lukaku had dreadful touch and offered little to nothing in the air. Martial gives CB's far more of a problem as he can actually hold the ball up. How many strikers in the world have Martial's pace, touch, strength and composure? I think he's the embodiment of what we're looking for in a striker and Man Utd player. For me Rashford isn't the solution upfront, as he lacks composure, but he still has the ability to score and is a nightmare for teams on the counter. I agree with AJH that it's in his head. When he has to think he fluffs it, but when he just gets on with it he usually does well. Think we should take a look at their tally's at the end of the season. If you wikipedia the great god Lukaku you'll realise he went on a 12 game premier league goal drought under mourinho last season, and only scored 12 in total in the Prem. Martial and Rashford both got 10 a piece. Pretty sure there isn't the gulf in class between Rom and the rest that people might like to think.

21 Sep 2019 13:37:51
People saying rash isn't this or that? The lad is 21, plenty of time to develop.
Not unheard of but very few are the finished article at that age .
Far more continue to improve and develop.

21 Sep 2019 16:43:34
Slunky. His goal return was outragous my ass. How many goals did he Evie in those 11 games? Complete nonsense and hyberbole.
Tell us what was outragous about it?

21 Sep 2019 16:47:58
Jred i agree he is young and will improve somewhat.
I think the people that are responding that he isn't this or that are doing so in relation to the complete hyberbole calling him a 100m player and one of the great prospects of the game.
He is neither great nor rubbish. He is starting his career and has done quite well to date for a young lad. He is not having a great run of form at the moment but these peaks and troughs happen at this stage in his development.

21 Sep 2019 17:36:28
Ken as a 21 year old striker he is right up there he is a very good prospect .
If you read the comments above not a single person has referred to him as a 100m player
A few have said he won't score goals or isn't a Cf . At 21 I think that's far to early an assumption.

21 Sep 2019 18:55:22
Unfortunately Rash will be another Lingard. A player who will be always close to start to play close to his abilities.

21 Sep 2019 19:03:06
Jred thank you for your response. Let me clarify. In your rush to have a go with me even when i'm agreeing with you you have misinterpret the post.
Those having a go to slam him are doing so and judging him against the hyberbole of the summer when his name being linked at the 100m mark amid alleged Barcelona interest.
Some on here raved about him for 18 months some feel he will be a top top player and those there are those that feel the exact opposite.
If you judge him against those types of standards then he is falling well short.
He has not been spectacular he is only 21 and will improve. What heights he is capable of reaching is debatable the next 2 or 3 years should show us more.
He at the moment is neither great nor is he rubbish which appear to be the 2 popular opinions. The truth is as usual is somewhere in the middle he is at the moment pretty average. He has time to be great. let's see what happens. The ssme can be said of martial. Neither are living up to their potential just yet.

21 Sep 2019 19:48:50
Ken mate, out of Ole's first 10 Premier league games (As per my post which you described as hyperbole), Rashford played 9 of the games as he was on the bench for the 10th match. He scored 6 goals and got 2 assists. His longest streak him scoring 4 matches consecutively. That's 8 direct goal involements in 9 games. Is that enough hyperbole for you?

21 Sep 2019 23:31:38
Slunky 6 goals in 10 games is about 2o a season if you uphold that average. That's not outragous by any stretch of the imagination. While it would be very good. It would be great if he could uphold that average sadly he hasn't. He was carrying a knock late in the season. Inconsistency it happens with youngsters.

22 Sep 2019 07:56:20
Ken your just twisting things to justify a united player getting flagged off. The comments are in reply to the last game and rash missing a couple of chances.
If he scores the other night there are no posts like this .

22 Sep 2019 09:32:16
Why would i be doing that while defending the player and i'm of the opposite view which is clear. you really are a piece of work jred.
