Hi guys... I know young is still good and helpful to our team... Maguire and Aaron will not play all the matches even those ones played on Thursdays so please respect him he will help us a lot.

And it's very very good u didn't played


i don't want to see u bench but i want to see you over Bench 😡

Its was a wonderful performance from you guys today, we are moving up. And pls respect this guy cos he's a red legend, he has serve this club faithfully and with so much dedication.

Happy to see on the bench!

Capitaino, I wish Ole reads the game very well. We are all happy with the result no one sees the fault. Young deserved to start for United and even England

Nice performance today, Youngy..You really warmed that bench with ease!

Thank you for warming the bench

Thanks for having a reason to stay out of pitch. We love you where you were today Much love when young is on the bench

Let's give respect Ashley Young, he has done good job for Manchester united. Meanwhile Man Utd carried the day, I was so impressed about its performance

And it's even better you stayed on the bench to see how business is done. Thanks alot AWB

Your replacement is soooooo good warm well that bench

Thanks to you didn’t play !

Nananananaaaa Ashley Ashley Young! Legend pal. Stretford was buzzing great atmosphere. Can’t wait for Wolves away now!!!

Thanks 🙏🏿 for sitting out today

Warm the bench for the rest if the season

You took a nice picture from the bench!!

Ashley Young deserves more respect from united fans than what he's getting here. He's been a great servant of the club from day one 🙏

Its good boss and thank God for #WAB if not we don't know what will happen

I can’t believe some of these responses from so called fans. The Man United ethos for those of you who need educating on the history is ONE AND ALL. If you want to see our team prosper then support ALL of our players regardless. The negative opinions does not help our team. Ashley is part of our squad and should be treated with respect. Plastic fair weather fans, most of which has never been to Old Trafford. I’m ashamed you declare yourselves true Man United fans because you definitely ain’t 😡

Ashley Young deserves more respect, He may not be at his best now but remember he was giving his all since day one even playing as a defender wich isn't his best position - True legend

You'll warm bench sir...... Hope you're learning from Aaron?

Guys let's be nice ,,, Ashley has played for us for long. He deserves respect.

Thanks for the memories, ENOUGH is ENOUGH....... LEAVE

Yes captain. Thank you for the results during the off season. I hope that will continue from next week

Let's respect Young and his contribution at the club...

Thanks Ashley for the passion you have been showing to the team. Never mind the haters. There's is always good and bad times in life.

I'll request the team to give you the most prestigious award or even the highest civilian award by the country, please just leave the team😄

Dear Ashley Young, greetings from Moldova! There is a group of people who ask you to get involved in finishing a sportiv project in our country. I don't think that you are in back of this page, but, if it is you, please write to me for details. Wish you all the best!!!

You were too good but now just leave before you ruin every good memories we had for you.pliz go to sunderland

They are at same level where they were last year I’m not feeling happy

Ashley Young you're the hardest working man on the pitch. Come game day I wear #18.

Good luck with the new season Ashley. The abuse from Muppets on here is uncalled for and an embarrassment to proper Utd fans.

Young has given this club much, let's learn to support these lads... His bn 1 of our best players in a long time and his a fighter... Let's not treat them any bad but appreciate them with support.

Please just tell Solkjaer that you can't be the team's captain for the sake of the whole club. Practice the virtue of being selfless for once.

Ashley Young has served United diligently. He's also given us good memories in the past. Unfortunately, age has caught up with him.... But we can't slate him this way ffs!

At OT when you get the armband it's a way of been told you are not worthy to play there. Remember Valencia. Just like our noisy neighbours

Pls let's respect him. He is a natural winger, but sacrificed himself to cover the space. Despite everything, I still love one thing about him😍😍

I've heard rumors you are going to be the captain when in the pitch, so who is going to be the captain for the 38 league matches... 🤔

"Real Manchester United Fans" will always and forever support you forget those morons calling themselves #MUFC but are constantly trolling you. Your commitments to the courses of #MUFC will forever remain in the hearts ❤💞 of some of us who knows you plays for the badge not for the cash 💵. I salute you Sir.

Play Ashley Young in central midfield Alongside either Matic or McTominay with Pogba upfront He can add defensive ability along with a good long passing range

Y’all need to take a chill guys. He’s coming back stronger this season he took a lot of sticks already. Just need to be consistent

What you guys must considered first is Young is not a Defender but he sacrificed himself to cover there when he was called on, you don't know how difficult it is to be deployed out of position you won't understand it if you have never step in the field of play

When are you saying goodbye to the club?

So very proud of you Ash congratulations on getting the club captain role you so deserve it ❤️ People seriously need to back off and stop being so nasty to Ash as I've said in previous posts on his page you need to remember he is a human being with feelings and it's not fair to keep being so nasty he is a lovely guy and a great player for the club he is so passionate and gives his all in every single match he is a very important player for the club and can play in many different positions he makes some dangerous crosses too he doesn't deserve this crap he gets off so many plastic fans so I suggest you think before you speak as you are all looking really stupid! We Love You Our Captain Youngy 👹 🔴 🤘🏾

Stop hating. Young has been one of the loyal servants of this club and he’s sacrificed a lot to play as a defender because we all know he’s not a natural defender but he does his best to do whatever the coach ask him to do.

Waiting for your blind passes... After you making a run from the center 🤔

please Ashley i want you to put away every critics and focus on your duty and never let them bring you down. see you tomorow in action against chelsea goodluck

Truly disappointed at the majority who jeered at him during the match earlier. So much for being "true fans" but without class. Disgusting. Very sorry on behalf of the fans in Singapore earlier, Captain! Glory Glory Man Utd! ❤

Young always delivers. We love you Ashley Young and we support you. Continue making us proud. We hope you play till 2025

Thanks young I always appreciate your efforts. Be strong.

"GOOD" what? Remember that your pass? I even thought the arrival of AWB will bring you sense but hell NO! I was wrong

Beautiful match, Ashley. Glad you are involved.

Sit on the bench happily and enjoy your salary. And we will be happy for you.

Please stop hating so mutch. We are supposed to support our players and our team! 😡

we love you young, We hove you injured

Thank you Young for everything since you came from Aston Villa but I believe it's time to leave us alone.Do me a favour by handling your transfer request and tell Jones and Smalling to do so,it's time for us to leave position 6 next season and on wards.

i hate your style of play more than you love it.

I saw you trying to hold on to a ball today. Please leave us alone.

play well or else you will leave. ...This season' our eyes are Red.

What I can remember is young playing back pass and blind pass as long as I can remember

You destroyed my passion for man United

Young we know how u tried for our united but its time to leave 😁😁....just kidding

Younggyyy 🎶 He is our captainnn 🎶 Captain fantasticcccc 🎶 Keep tearing on the opponent apart 🎶 We love you younggg

You and lord Smalling 👏😍should play on a wider part. Possibly outside the stadium 🙏😑

You played good but too much backpasses ..

Young has been a loyal servant to the club, the amount of disrespect he gets is just embarrassing for United

It's time to sit on bench and let kids enjoy there time on that flank.

So glad you have been replaced now. You have had a few good seasons but you were terrible last season and should never have got the captaincy you and a few others should have left the club by now.

Please leave... 😭😭😭.. With you and Jones in the team makes as look kinda weak... You have done more than enough for united I think it just right to leave now

All of you plastic fans can leave the club if you don't like who the management signs, release or keep. You can always come back when they have left!!

Hello Young 👋 When will you leave OTF? Remember to bring Jones and Smalling with you 🙏😞

Tha fans are so happy to see you everyday🤨🤨

Save lives from heart attacks with your awful football, please retire. Otherwise every time a Manchester united fan dies of heart attack because of your mess, you're the killer.
