Man United fans were left impressed with a pretty good Dan James display vs Newcastle United.
Well, it wasn’t vintage Manchester United but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys did get the job done. In the end, the 3-1 win probably flatters us, but it’s another three points on the board.
We’re now at that stage in the season where we’re probably playing for Champions League football. Each and every victory gets us closer to that and it was nice to see us win at home today.
In terms of attacking potency, it’s fair to say we struggled for the first hour. Bruno Fernandes couldn’t get into the game while Anthony Martial was nothing short of atrocious.
Up stepped Daniel James. It was his work ethic that set the tone, while the Welshman constantly bombed up and down his flank all game. In the end, he’d get his reward by scoring United’s second with an emphatic finish.
Right now, he’s repaying his manager’s good faith and I’m all for it. James is showing that sort of form that was on full display when he was first signed by Solskjaer from Swansea City eighteen months ago.
James has to kick on from here and show us all why he was signed by the biggest club in England. If the young man continues to play like that, I don’t doubt he’ll continue to prove those haters wrong. Well played, young man.
