    Shaw got 60 minutes for the U23’s against Swansea yesterday.
    Hopefully he gets more game time against Tottenham on Friday and is ready for first team selection after the international break.

    If there’s one player I hope comes good this season it’s Luke Shaw. If he turns out half as good as Evra or Irwin he’ll nail down that spot for United and England for a decade.

    Like I said before, the Luke Shaw camp are making all the right noises. About hard work and taking the fantastic opportunity that’s been presented to him. He’s even gone as far as to say, almost, that he took it for granted and didn’t work hard enough last year.
    Sounds like he’s nearing full fitness so expect him to get his first start of the season in the next couple of weeks.
    Time for the talking to be done on the pitch, if he can stay fit and get back to the form he showed, in glimpses, last season then I think he’ll be absolutely fine.

    So he’s fit now it’s just a “question of form. It’s a question of option but he is not injured. He has recovered from his injury.”

    Watching Ashley Young, an average winger who has barely played football in three years, slot in comfortably at right back then left back the last two games you have to wonder what is going on with Luke Shaw? It certainly doesn’t feel like the force is with him…who thought playing a game of football could be so complicated?

    Not buying a proper left back is starting to look like a poor decision.

    I think Left Back will become our next key signing if Luke Shaw doesn’t sort himself out this season. Hopefully they’re preparing him for a long run in the side rather than rushing him back too early…

    This is part of Mourinho’s management that i find very frustrating. There seems to be players that are undroppable yet others that cant get a game. Players like Shaw and Martial clearly have talent but cant get a run of games in the team to show anything or build. One bad game and they’re dropped. They’re both in their third years at the club so should be either played or sold. It’s not like we have either of their positions nailed down with worldies. There is no denying that both have had attitude problems in the past but they seem to have got past that. Both are players that i think Fergie would be getting a lot more out of. A mate asked me the other day how i thought Mourinho would handle a young Ronaldo like Fergie did all those years ago? To be honest, i have no idea. I find his handling of players a little strange.

    Hopefully he will start on Wednesday.

    He seems to be fit, so there is no reason why he can’t be involved in the cup match.

    I actually quite like this kind of management. He showed massive support in Shaw by not signing a LB this summer. But, he’s not just gonna walk into the team. He must show dedication, fight and form. I reckon Shaw will play against Burton but get dropped from the squad for the next game.
    Reminds me of how Mourinho treated Hazard. Hazard didn’t have the right mentality for that to work though. Hopefully Shaw and Martial do.

    When you consider how badly he’s been treated by Mourinho, how long he’s been kept out of the squad on match days and how his confidence must be absolutely shot to bits – it is quite remarkable how well he played last night in his first start of the season. Apparently he’s now the fittest player at the club and he looked sharp and fast last night.
    He’s been questioned at times about his attitude but that right there is pure determination and it was great to see him back.
    He’s clearly the best left back at the club – come on Jose, don’t cut your nose off to spite your face. If you’d have bled him back into the team a few weeks ago then we might actually feel comfortable going into the derby on Sunday knowing we’ve got a solid left back in form.

    #1566520

    Shaw definitely played well yesterday however I’d still go with Young – he’s been on top form in recent weeks and I think will suit a compact United defence (which is what I imagine Mourinho will play with on Sunday) more. Shaw can get game time after the derby and start building up to get back into the team but the derby on Sunday is way too close.

    It was a great performance to be fair and he’s definitely put his hand up to be noticed. He needs to keep his levels up, it’s clear now that ability is not enough at United, he’s GOT to back it up with hard work which, in fairness, he seems to be doing. I think maybe talk of being shipped out to Newcastle on loan in January scared him, I mean I’d be scared if I was told I might be loaned out to Newcastle as well

    Agreed, it should be Young all the way on Sunday. But I’d like to see Shaw given a fair chance after that.

    I would play 5 in midfield with Young joining Matic,Herrera,Fellaini,and Martial in midfield 5 with Lukaku upfront.I would love to see Shaw getting his confidence back,cos that is the only thing lacking in the boy!
    Ship Blind and Darmian out in January if you[Jose] think/believe Shaw can make it back to his previous[ fantastic] form.

    If Spurs are willing to give us Rose for Shaw and some change I would bite my hand off. Luke Shaw is not ready to play for this football club. It’s fair enough that he had a few nice attacking runs but he was knackered by the 55th minute and everyone seems to ignore the fact that his amateurish positioning was what caused the goal.

    He’s been fit for 2 months and can’t get in the team. I’m not buying this “Jose is treating him badly” narrative. I think he’s just unfocused and a bit rubbish.

    There has to be a solution @hatters mate,either he plays the lad or sells him so he can get his career back on track.

    @hatters, maybe so but that was his first game of the season and it always takes a while to get accustomed to the pace, everything. Shaw is potentially, note I’ve said potentially, a top player and, as stated, should be given time or sold.
    He had no pre-season and hasn’t played since last season so he’s obviously going to struggle to make 90 mins in a match that CSKA had to get a result in so they were going to press and work hard.

    @killeboye. I don’t buy that mate. He’s appeared sporadically in the reserves and u23s – looked rubbish there as well.

    I think he’s had his chance and we as a club need this position sorted out if we don’t want to be left in Manchester City’s dust. No time to wait for his potential I’m afraid. Not only that but I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that Pochettino, van Gaal, and Mourinho have all felt the need to criticize him publicly for his unprofessionalism. The player is the common denominator across three different managers.

    I just feel like fans give him a lot of leeway when it’s clear he isn’t cutting it. If he isn’t sold then he must at least go out on loan.
