“We are playing with 10 men”: These fans express dismay over Solskjaer sticking with much maligned defender

You can sometimes look at a struggling club and pinpoint a player that absolutely embodies why they aren’t doing well. It’s still baffling that Ashley Young continues to play for Man United regularly.

He’s a long way removed from the exciting attacking threat he was years ago. He’s started terribly against Newcastle and continues to look predictable in possession and a real weak link in defence.

He’s the type of player that wouldn’t be remotely near the Liverpool or Man City squad, and shows just how much Man United have fallen away since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

These fans on Twitter have expressed their feelings about Young appearing in the team again:

This clip sums up his awful start to the game:

You have to think that Luke Shaw would be playing instead of Young if he was fit, but the former Southampton man has a history of injuries so the club must have known someone else would need to play there at some point this season.

Brandon Williams is on the bench, he must wonder what else he needs to do to force his way into the team.
