Jesse Lingard

The lad has scored 8 goals in 9 matches in the league this season.
Yes. Let me repeat that ... 8 goals in 9 PL matches.
It is absolutely outstanding. Well done and fair play to him
Best way to answer his critics and there have been a lot of them amongst United fans recently.
I'm glad to see him doing great at Westham.
Lingard has scored more goals this season in the Premier League than Sadio Mane , Roberto Firmino , Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner ... And all these guys have played more than twice as many matches in the league this season as him.

I’m glad he’s doing well but I’d be surprised if he keeps this standard up.

He had a similar hot streak in Jose’s 2nd season.

We should sell now while his stock is high.

Hopefully West Ham get into Europe and they can work out a deal for him. He doesn't deserve our fans. He loves the club and went through a torid 2 years with his mum's health, yet all most of the fans and pundits could do was to abuse him. Here's hoping he has a great Euros and amazing second half to his pro career.

This.

He was treated poorly by some and couldn’t stand all that nonsense that he wasn’t fully committed because he has a clothing line and likes to dance.

I am happy for the lad and hope he can keep his form up, but he was rightly criticised for his performances at United (even if he was often played out of position).
______________

What is his position though? That was part of the problem. When he was played wide, everyone said he wasn't really a winger; when he played in a sort of no. 10 position at times early last season, he looked lost.

The position West Ham play him in seems to work for him.

Yes. Which makes it all the more annoying that, for whatever reason, we couldn't get a tune out of him consistently in any position.

Jose did.

Some players need a run of games to find their form. He wouldn't get that at United.

United need to convince West Ham to part with the best part of 30 million for him as soon as possible whilst he is doing well there.

I reckon that Jesse will want to return to United and fight for a place next season after the Euros ( the only reason he went to West Ham was to get in the England squad). Which will mean we would be lumbered with him again paying his daft wages. He really isn't good enough to play for United every week.

Ole gave him a run of over a year.

At best he gives Marcus and Bruno a rest every few matches as needed, always in a different position. He should be sold ASAP while on form. Jesse deserves a chance and it won't be here. Heartbreaking for him, but the only fair deal for all parties. I just don't think he returns to us and gets a regular run at the same position. Same with Donny - unfair for both players and they need to move on.

Ole gave him a run of games and he was terrible.
There is a famous clip of Ole shouting at Jesse vs City from the touchline at Maine Road warning him that if he kept giving the ball away he was coming off. We didn't see much of Jesse after that.
