Why is the thought of selling Martial crazy? He's well into his 3rd season and is yet again under performing. His work ethic for the cause is dreadful. Joey has given him plenty of chances to prove his worth in the team and he constantly passes it up. Nobody got fucked about more than Rooney but he always gave 100%. Olly Gunnar too! That cunt could bag a hattrick and would still be dropped for the next 3 games, then come on as sub and bag a brace then get dropped again. But he always looked ready for the challenge. Martial has been trusted with starts against Huddersfield, Brighton, Bristol. He returned zip!! He just doesn't look right.
So for me I'd be looking to recoup as much as possible or palm him off in player plus cash deal.
He's a decent'ish player but I'm not convinced he's top table of the Prem stuff.
Take your moist knickers off. There was nothing wrong with the Arsenal and Watford away performances. Two games practically everyone said we'd lose. Drastically unlucky away to Leicester, and should have murdered Burnley. It is what it is. Agreed Lukky is struggling. But a couple of months ago people were saying he was exactly what we'd been missing. In the same situation under Luther. Against Burnley 0-2 down he'd have took off Hernandez and Mata and put Blind and Darmian on. Joey acted on it and was extremely unlucky not to win the game. At least he went for it. He cant do any more than what he did. The team played really well but some times shit happens. That's football. But we need to let 4 or 5 go and have them replaced with quality.
