Martial

Deserves his own thread.

Great penalties

One of the best one on one dribblers of the ball we've had in a decade or more. Never seen anyone beat so many in one go

What on earth do we do with him, Rashford, and Mikhi in the team?

Martial is a really rare talent - to find someone with such pace, unreal dribbling (yesterday I noticed he could do if from a standing spot), and yet so deadly in front of goal - his composure in the box is something else ... This kid could rule the world.


Excerpt from a Chris Smalling interview about Lukaku and Martial on manutd.com
“He’s just a beast,” Smalling said of Lukaku. “You can play it into him and he can hold it up, people can run off him, and he’s just a nightmare to play against.

“Right from pre-season, Anthony’s been leading the way in training,” he added. “He’s terrifying one-v-one, as we’ve seen tonight, I’m glad he’s on my team.”

Was awesome vs CSKA. He looks like Martial from his first season, although even better. This guy has the making to be a real superstar. Seems to have formed a good connection with Lukaku too.

The comparison with Henry is actually quite accurate

I watched Henry when he was a young up and comer at Monaco, Henry was more a runner than Martial, he tips the ball past you and beats you with pace. He did dribble but his style was more running than anything. Martial is a dribbler and that's why he's so dangerous, the ball and the opponent are at his feet most of the time.

He had a difficult time last season, but it's starting to come together for him now.

I think we're getting a great forward line, and he's going to become a very important part of it. When he's on form he's a joy to watch.
