I'd like to wish Ashley young well and salute him for his time at the club, I think he came in 2011 so 9 years, 5 different managers and I think it's fair to say that he performed key roles for all of those managers over the years.
He respected the badge and always gave 100%, he's played anywhere he's been asked to on the right and left in midfield and defence, pretty sure he was used as a forward/ striker in a game or 3. I'll always remember those 2 goals against arsenal in the 8-2 and another few vital goals aswell. Also became out club captain and always represented himself and the club very well.
Ashley Young in my opinion is the ultimate squad player. Someone said here that he's a symptom of the malaise at the club, while I wouldn't use that as a dig at Ashley i would say that he should not have been relied on as a starting lb or rb over the years.
he would have been a great player to bring on and cover 5 positions but because we didn't spend Ashley became more vital and whilst a very good player he was not of the quality to be a starting player over a number of seasons.
I think maguire has the leads hip capabilities and think he will deal well with the captaincy.
I know Harry has only been here a short time but I agree with Ken below on de gea and on the goalkeeper captain thing in general and I fear the captaincy may weigh heavily on Marcus although it is clear that Marcus will be club captain in the future in my opinion.

Well said Rosspique. very good squad player, never moaned when he wasn't in the team and let's be honest he must have been aware he gets some stick from fans. He stayed maybe too long but that's hardly his fault, contract was offered him with good money who can blame him. I wish him well, and decent wedge of money saved on salary.

Echo that. Good luck - enjoy the move!

Well said that man.

Summed up perfectly, Ross. I was never fussed when we got him, and wouldn't have been fussed if he'd left at any point. Always thought he was a decent player, no more no less. Never could understand some of the abuse for him though, because his work-rate, professionalism and dedication to the club through very troubled times, could never be doubted and was obvious for all to see. Good luck to him.

Well said Ross.

If Martial, Pogba and other players had Young's attitude, they would be world beaters.

Well said Ross and TRD's post has relevance as well.
A Young deserves our respect.
