Shameful. Irrelevant kids with no sense of respect.
That’s the internet for you, anonymity gives idiots the impression
they matter when they don’t.
Hope Young ignores it for what it is.

Fuck you young u don’t deserve to wear that don’t deserve any club in the premier league, go fuck yourself in championship league,u bastard

Young should warm e bench or sell to villa or any team at all cos he has nothing to gv united. I was even sad as united fan for he against lvrpool either moyes should gv chicha kagawa n zaha more playing time.

I really don’t like it when people think they have to swear to bring a point across but I do have to say that I fully agree with what the people are saying that he isn’t good enough for and shouldve been sold off long ago… if he has any sense he’ll put in a transfer request immediately. He really is that bad

I think he is spared to stay for man u up till this moment is bcs he is an english player, i dnt see the reason y kagawa n nani will be on the bench n ur playing young this is absolutely shit!!

I hate seeing Young stink up our left flank as much as the next fan but this kind of abuse is pathetic. That said, hopefully reading these messages will inspire Young to up his game a bit!
