'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Young Makes Decent Start

Ashley Young, on Sky Sports, deservedly picked up the man-of-the-match award.

On his Premier League debut for Manchester united, the ex-Aston Villa forward looked comfortable on the ball and always looked our best chance of sneaking a hard-fought victory.

An assist for the first goal, scored by Wayne Rooney, was followed by a dart-back from the by-line which resulted in an own goal to give us all those three points.

Although his running style may be deceptive, Young appears to have settled down quickly in his first few weeks at Old Trafford and could well be an influential figure over the coming months.

Speaking about his summer signing, Sir Alex had this to say,

"He has good composure on the ball and is a threat but he had a few crosses blocked."

"Getting to a byline is a dangerous thing, that`s where the goal came from."


Not too much praise, but then again doesn`t Sir Alex like to keep their feet firmly on the ground?

I was very impressed with him. I was sceptical about the transfer in the first place and wasn't too sure that for the money we paid whether there was better options available. His crosses were brilliant, poor Ben Foster didn't know how to handle them and it was unforunante that he didn't get a couple more assists in the game. His seemingly gelled straight into the squad and his link up play is magnificent with some lovely intricate passing between him, Rooney and Fabio. One criticism would be pretty much what Fergie said, a few attacking opportunities were wasted from blocked crosses and he would be better off adding alot more variety. I know he's not left footed but a few left footed crosses would keep the opposition guessing as would, like he learnt, running to the byline and cutting inside rather than just cutting inside/crossing from deep every time. In fairness to him though he realised his crosses were getting quite cliche and so learnt from it and got us the goal. More of the same please Young.

Very well played Ashley - seemed to fit in very nicely to our line up - and would be good to see more of the same. Liked how he got MoTM - but then wondered to hell how Torres got it in the other Sunday game when it was a goaless draw!

Should've been one of Stokes CB's. He basically won MOTM from looking sharper and hungrier than last year.

Of course hes going to look hungrier than last year - he was awful - needs to score goals to keep in that side and be paid lol - but yeah he does look sharper and nearing back to his old form - but still I agree - a CB should have got it....

I don't reckon he'll ever achieve his old form though. He'll never get played into space and instead will have to try and take on or power through 3 to 4 players or try and hold the ball up, as we saw against Stoke. Neither of these are Torres' strengths and unless Chelsea compliment Torres preferred style of play they'll never get Liverpool's Fernando Torres of 2008.

Torres looks perrmanently broken to me, ie he weill never be the same player after Benitez ruined him by constantly playing him while he was injured. Time will tell I suppose, but you only need to look at the likes of Robbie Fowler to see how injuries have done for many a top striker's career, even though they've gone on to play for a few seasons afterwards.
