Our forwards

Lukaku is coming in for a lot of stick after yesterday, and rightly so, but are our other forwards getting off lightly?

Lukaku has 15 in all competitions with Rashford and Martial on 11 each. That's 37 between them in all competitions compared with Arsenals 40, Liverpool's 50 and City's 59.

OK so they played under Jose for half the season, but Liverpool haven't been as good offensively this season and Arsenal are still finding their feet having moved on from Wenger.

So, do we believe any of our current forwards are truly good enough to fire us to a title or Champs league trophy in the next 5 years?

That would have been my second option.

Absolute nonsense to suggest the purchase of Sanchez and indeed Ibra before was done by Jose with the intention of letting martial and rashford learn their trade

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Genuinely keen to hear why you think that.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyone observing how in particular martial was treated by Jose and how his career hasn't progressed during his tenure couldn't think it was anything other than nonsense


----------------------------------------------------------------------
I said Sanchez was signed to lighten the load goals wise on Lukaku whilst the young Martial and Rashford grew into their roles.

I don't see how anyone can argue that Sanchez was a short term sign g whilst Rashford and Martial were / are the future of the club.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Grew into their roles
Learnt their trade

You do talk some bolx
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Both readily used terms for young players learning / getting started
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Martial signed in 2015 yeh Muppet was a recently capped full French international around that time

Rashford had broke into the utd side around that time as well
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you think either are the finished article now then ?

Bye name calling is a sign of weakness
----------------------------------------------------------------------
No they obviously are not


And if Jose had remained it would have taken longer if at all for them to become so which is why martial would most certainly have looked for a move away

It could be argued that their careers stalled and in martial case regressed under Jose

They have a manager now though who quite obviously believe and trusts them

The difference is so obvious a blind man could see it

I will take back the Muppet remark not that you arnt coming across as one
-------------------------------------------------------------------
They aren’t the finished article and yet you think my use of the term “learning their trade” to describe their current situation bollx. How strange.

He would have done had Jose remained in charge. Only an utter imbecile could deduce otherwise

------------------

This
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This was a rumour and completely unsubstantiated.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

He refused to sign a new contract. Jose leaves and he does.

The club made it clear to Jose that he wanted to stay

"He refused to sign a new contract" Due to the terms offered according to his agent. Nothing to do with Jose.

"Jose leaves" Due to performances, not Martial.

"He does" But has made no mention this was because of Jose going.

But you make up whatever scenario that makes you happy.

That would be sad, if I was him.

Seriously, let it go and let’s try and get along. It’s only a footy forum. If in a couple of weeks you dont like my opinion then block me and il return the favour.
