He was fantastic last season but this season is a true test of where he is as a player. He needs to prove that last season wasn’t just a freak season.
 
Sums up for me what a modern day player should be like. Club should be proud of him.

Split up with his long term partner, hopefully won't have a negative effect

Opposing defences must be terrified of him.

Another great season I predict
 
I want to see more of him on the left and less of him through the middle. We blunted our own attack too often last season by playing him at 9 and Bruno wide right. Our best players need to play in their best positions.
 
Been poor pre-season, hope he's priming himself to be ready for the Wolves match.
 
The sooner we can get Hojlund fit the better. Rashford is not good through the middle, he’ll have the odd good game there but he’s so much more effective from the left.

He was dreadful last night and shades of the uninterested player from a couple of years ago. He wasn’t the only one to look like that obviously but a bit of a worrying performance.
 
no point having Hojlund when there is no service.

Supply was awful, as was our midfield, we need to get some decent MF options
 
Just got bullied by the two Wolves centre backs who are a decent partnership they had his number in that centre forward position had a few half chances.

No space in behind to work with and very little quality build up play to open up that defence.

I felt he should have done better with the header in the first half which he headed into a defender.

Faded badly second half and just didn't look interested and was rightly subbed.

He isn't a world class centre forward but he's going to have to play some games there this season.
 
I’ve seen very little of Hojlund, but boy, the sooner he is available the better. Rashford is half the player as a striker. Martial looked miles better, which speaks volumes.
 
Rashford looks like he is sulking whenever he is asked to play as the striker. Needs to offer much more.
 
Fantastic goal but gave away possession leading to the third goal. The second time this season he’s cost United a goal.
 
Third goal is no biggie, we're pressing for an equaliser, buy why is 35 year old Evans left alone, and again, Onana is a bit clueless in those situations.

But Rashford is off it a bit. Needs to get back with his girlfriend
 
He annoys me every game as he always pulls out of 50-50 challenges. Goal aside, his decision making in the final third is awful. I'm starting to wonder if he is up for the fight.

This constant Onana-bashing is becoming ridiculous. 2nd goal was deflected with two defenders ball-watching and third goal was a quality finish.
 
Took his goal well, almost had a second only a great block from Saliba stopped his follow up from the Martial shot.

Wasn’t easy they have a lot of pace at the back and clearly looked to double up on him whenever they could.

He is never going to be great defensively most attacking players aren’t but that is two games back on the left and he’s looked a lot more dangerous.

Lovely bit of skill and pass Hojlund tried to back heel in.
Our forwards are feeding off scraps a bit. The quality off the ball up to them needs to improve considerably.
 
Something's not right with him again. Someone phone his childhood sweetheart
 
Worrying times, moreso if he signed a new contract. Think he's letting being constantly overlooked for England get to him.
 
I think it gets over hyped there are points in games where you have to rest especially with the amount of long runs he does either chasing through balls or dribbling. I do think he has a bit of a sulk in him but that’s where the manager needs to be tough and sub him.

He was inches away from a goal and an assist on Saturday.

My worry is will he start getting his head up to find Hojlund as he ignored him when their was a chance to pass.
 
Piss poor again, needs benching, is EtH brave enough to go Garnacho, Hojlund and Pellistri?
 
as bad, missed a sitter, tripped over the ball, didn't really look confident enough or know what to do with the ball when he had it. Largely missing
 
Bright start but faded. Bayern cut the supply off to him once they started dominating the ball and when we were able to get the ball to him he was marked by 2 or 3 players, they knew our threat was down the left and made sure they had the protection needed on that side so that he couldn't get 1 vs 1 with Laimer.

Put a lovely ball in at the end for Garnacho when he moved to the right side.

I think there's early signs of him and Hojlund starting to get on the same page.

If we had world class options to replace him may be we could bench him but reality is we don't and when Garnacho has started games he's been poor it's clear he's better used as an impact.

What needs to be happening though is when he stops influencing games ETH needs to sub him off.
 
Burnley 0-1 Man Utd

Off his game you can always tell when he doesn’t have confidence as he slows his game down to much.
 
A real nothing performance from him and looked short of confidence.

This is a really big season for him to show last seasons goal scoring exploits weren’t just a one off. Not started the season well at all.
 
He struggles when he is has to slow down and make decisions, his football intelligence is low. He is excellent when he plays on instinct. His work ethic is very poor.

He needs to start producing otherwise he’ll be in for a shock when the fans start to turn against him.
 
I do think there are signs of an understanding developing between him and Hojlund they are looking for each other on the pitch more and more but Rashford clearly isn’t in top form and is being heavily marked in games. He very rarely gets his man one Vs one and that’s a problem for him.

He doesn’t look sharp at all.

As for the fans he’s used to it they pile on him as quickly as anyone between he does like to wander about a bit and the manager lets him get away with it. I suspect they want him to save his energy for the explosive sprints in behind but The team needs more from him if he’s going to have that luxury.

Im sure at some point in the season it’ll click and he will have his purple patch as that seems to be the way with him.
 
Involved in a car crash after the Burnley game.

Apparently he wasn’t injured in the crash.

How much did Rashford's car cost?

Will it be available on Caught on Dashcam soon?

And oh yeah was anybody hurt?

Some papers were reporting that his car cost £700k. What the actual feck!?!

No one hurt. Bruno first on the scene checked Rashford was okay and waited with him until he was allowed to leave.
 
£700k is just mad and goes to show the crazy amounts of money these players are paid! Could have bought my house twice for that price!

Sorry, I was mocking the original article - I have no interest in the value of the car, nor make.

The only important thing was that everybody involved was okay. Anything else is pure jealousy.
