    Thank god he’s going – he’s really showing his toxic traits on his way out! A representation of what has been wrong with this club for years.

    Jesse WAS a sign of hope. An academy product with some talent but a massive work ethic and desire that showed what could be achieved. But Jesse, like others, thought he had made it. All it took was a few regular appearances, a lowered shirt number and international caps for Jesse to think he was the finished article. From the academy lad who won us an F.A. Cup, Jesse fell into the hype of his own narrative. Releasing his own clothing brand on the eve of the Liverpool game, becoming more engrossed in his dances and personalized celebrations, constant rumours of leaks to the press… In fairness to him, he shouldn’t have been here this year. He had a few good months in West Ham, we could and should have sold him to them – he was promised game time in Manchester and stayed to fulfill that. But, regardless of how hard he feels his life has been, he’s sullied his name in his boyhood club with his petulant actions. Taking self-imposed time off after winter transfer window, undermining club by posting photos of himself in West Ham kit, and this nonsense of him and his family upset that Cavani comes on ahead of him in their last game at OT. Obviously Jesse didn’t get the message of us renaming the Stretford End after him… And now, he wishes well to Mark Noble, a man he knew for 5 months who Jesse claims “took him under his wing” over Matic and Mata, whom he shared a dressing room with for 12 years combined. Took under his wing? You were 28 Jesse, time to grow up.

    Jesse, you were a very good player. You had the potential to be remembered as a great player. You were never the superstar you liked to think you were, but you had more talent than a lot of players who are remembered as greats by United fans. Ji-Sung Park, Darren Fletcher, John O’Shea… These players had less ability than Jesse, but will be remembered more fondly. At some point, he stopped playing for the badge on the front of his jersey, and started playing for the name on the back.

    I don’t think he’s even deserving of this length of a post. Let him fuck right off and don’t let the door hit him on the way out is more fitting.

    Lingard had a difficult few years: had family issues that affected him so I gave him the benefit of the doubt for a while…

    … But issues do not last 3 to 4 years, and him clearly putting high interest in his clothing line and his dance moves and social media whilst he wasn’t performing well just rubbed me (and every other United fan it seems) the wrong way.

    Personally I’m glad he’s out the door – him expecting some sort of time just for being there a while just put the nail in the coffin of showing that he cared more about himself rather than about the club.

    Just never rated him. Bit of pace and a shot and goal in him, but then there’s plenty of that type about.

    How he is still at United when turning 30 at his next birthday is an unjoyful mystery…..

    Wouldn’t piss on the useless fucker if he was on fire, good riddance. The only shame is that thanks to Woodturd and Ole it didn’t happen years ago.

    The wee fucker must have easily pulled £30M out of the club in wages over the years for doing fuck all. Yet he is still shouting his mouth off through his family. Apparently he is one of the people leaking shit. Will be glad to see the black of him.

    The fucking irony of him telling Scholes the dressing room was a disaster. Could it have been anything else with chumps like him nicking a living off the club….

    That story Rooney told when he and Carrick went into the dressing room the next day after a defeat, where they were still fuming at losing the game – that was a classic story and highlighted the lack of mentality.
    They found Lingard and Pogba dancing in the dressing room to some silly music. They just didn’t care enough about losing football matches, that was the issue.
    So Rooney ripped the stereo out and threw it out of the changing room!
    🙂
