Seeing as there's no United for a while, might as well treat this as a half way point, of sorts. Anyway, how would you rate them;

 

DDG

Varane

Martinez

Maguire

Lindelof

Dalot

AWB

Shaw

Malacia

Casemiro 

Fred

Eriksen

McTomminay

Bruno

VDB

Sancho

Antony

Elanga

Rashford

Garnacho

Martial

Ronaldo

DDG - 6.5 - Some good saves, but the same limitations will always hold us back. 

Varane - 8.5 - Maybe our best player before injury. A consistent problem though. 

Martinez - 8 - Some shaky moments aside he's been great. My favourite player. 

Maguire - 4 - Ass

Lindelof - 5 - Not a liability but a huge downgrade on Varane

Dalot - 8 - Unbelievable transformation. Gets exposed defensively occasionally but has been a weapon on that flank. 

AWB - N/A - I genuinely can't remember watching him play

Shaw - 6.5 - Mediocre which of course has our fans saying "he's back" lol. 

Malacia - 6.5 - Hit and miss. Mediocre. 

Casemiro - 7.5 - Started poorly but slowly developing into our most important player. 

Fred - 4 - Trash

Eriksen - 7 - Been fine. Overrated by our fans. 

McTomminay - 7 - Been fine. Underrated by our fans. 

Bruno - 7.5 - High highs and low lows. Classic Bruno. Our most important attacking player. 

VDB - 3 - A scam. 

Sancho - 2 - A bigger scam.

Antony - 7.5 - Solid if not spectacular. Our most reliable attacker at keeping/progressing the ball. 

Rashford - 6 - Far better than last season. Still shite. 

Garnacho - 7 - The glimpses have been great, hopefully he puts it all together. 

Martial - 6.5 - Good when fit but a crock.

Ronaldo - 1 - A hindrance who couldn't give less of a shit.

McTominay getting a 7 is enough to be sectioned. The definition of trash.

DDG..6.5.. goalkeeping not bad but distribution shaky

Varane.. 8. Very good and docked a point for being regularly injured 

Martinez.. 8.5

Maguire.. 3.. 

Lindelof.. 5.5

Dalot..7.5 a big improvement but shown some defensive frailties

AWB ..

Shaw 6.5

Malacia 6

Casemiro 7

Fred 5.5

Eriksen 7.5

McTomminay.. 6

Bruno.. 6

VDB..4

Sancho..5.5

Antony 7.5

Rashford 6.5

Garnacho 7

Martial 6.5 again can't give him too high a rating as he's seen so little action 

Ronaldo.. 5

The number system always leaves me feeling less certain about my choices so I'm just going to put them in buckets. Tier 1s are indispensable players, where I really need to think hard to remember a bad performance. Tier 2s are crucial players but who are liable to let you down at times. Tier 3s are generally good, but need to improve in one or more areas of their game, if they stay as they are then in the future they make the squad but not the team. Tier 4s are OK but would really need to step up if they are going to have a future here. Tier 5s look like they make the team worse every single time they play.

Tier 1

  • Martinez,
  • Casemiro
  • Varane

Tier 2

  • Eriksen
  • Dalot
  • Fernandes
  • Garnacho*
  • Martial*

Tier 3

  • Rashford
  • Antony
  • Shaw
  • De Gea
  • Malacia
  • McTominay

Tier 4

  • Sancho
  • Fred
  • Lindelof
  • Elanga

Tier 5

  • Maguire
  • Ronaldo
  • Donny*

*small sample size

DDG - 6 - Atrocious then pretty good, averages out to a 6 but he still distributes with the fine aim of a party popper 

Varane - 8 - A real shame he's made of glass because although it took him some time to get up to speed he was quality when fit 

Martinez - 8.5 - Could've been caught out a bit more with some iffy fouls etc but he genuinely might be our best passer  

Maguire - 4.5 - I was always a bit more defensive of him than many but he was genuinely fucking abysmal tbh

Lindelof - 6 - Meh, closer to Maguire than Martinez & Varane sadly

Dalot - 8 - Arguably the most improved player under ETH, he looked promising on loan at Milan, finally starting to fulfill his potential 

AWB - 5.5 - He had that one game in europe, was there another? looked useless in ETH's system tbh, will be good for a more defensive side

Shaw - 7 - This is probably slightly generous given his first and last couple of games but for all his flaws and much as I loathe him we moved the ball better with him than without (guess we'll just have to keep buying new LBs every summer)

Malacia - 7 - Initially incredible, been exposed a bit since, has work to do on the ball especially, is young and promising - good value so far

Casemiro - 8 - Initially feared he was washed and he had a ropey beginning but settled into a transformational role tbh

Fred - 5.5 - His lack of quality sadly shows up a lot especially in games we dominate possession, he's a decent squad player but wouldn't be shocked to see him leave free

Eriksen - 7.5 - Considering we've been using him a bit deeper than he'd like a lot I think he's done really well and he's capable of passes on the half turn seemingly nobody else is 

McTomminay - 6 - If it wasn't for some important goals / moments I'd have given him like a 5 as I think he's been mostly shocking but another 'squad player' basically 

Bruno - 6.5 - No shock he's miles better without Ronaldo, is still miles off the heights of his first 6-18 months here, suspect stylistically he's peaked for us in that sense but is still very important in terms of goals/assists 

VDB - 4.5 - Massive let down, finally got a few chances and honestly can't think of a single positive memorable thing he achieved in those games

Sancho - 4 - flop of the season? maybe, especially given how sharp he looked in pre-season, is it a physicality thing? is it mental? a mix of both? Just gutting he's not even come close to the hype tbh despite flashing great traits

Antony - 7 - Love his passion and he's made a good start, maintains possession really well, would like to see him take on a few more players though, drop off at RW after him is huge 

Rashford - 6.5 - End product has returned to some extent, major major improvement, still needs to be more consistent in his performances and how he distributes those goals/assists 

Garnacho - 7 - Has "it" for sure - let's hope we can nurture him right 

Martial - 7.5 - Class when around, I have gone from resenting him and wanting him binned to really enjoying him *but* he's too injury prone to be reliable

Ronaldo - 3 - Expensive parasite - good riddance

Disagree with several but AWB and Martial are the standouts. The former, I think you got partially correct, that being the .5

Martial? Really don't see where you got the 7 from? I firmly believe that Utd carry more of a threat when he takes up his position on the treatment table!

DDG - 6 - now 5 - we need better to transition the style of play long term 

Varane - 8 still 8 

Martinez - 8.5 -> 7.5 Bit ropey at first since coming back, but is getting there again, love his spirit   

Maguire - 4.5 --> 5.5 meh but as really overpriced backup he's ok

Lindelof - 6  still 6 

Dalot - 8 - we've not really seen him so I'd keep him as it was, I think any fear AWB would take his spot back long term after a promising few games was dispelled today though

AWB - 5.5 ---> 7 - good player, but limited 

Shaw - 7 --> still has had a pretty good run since the WC albeit exposed today, is massively overrated though, genuinely think he's better at cb personally...

Malacia - 7 still 7 - quietly been really solid since coming back

Casemiro - 8 --> 8.5 so good, and clearly has bought in to the club well

Fred - 5.5 --> has proved himself a really valuable squad player and should absolutely be kept as backup / depth next season

Eriksen - 7.5 --> 7 a little exposed out of possession when playing in the deeper 2 at times but has quality in midfield we've not had passing wise for the best part of a decade 

McTomminay - 6 --> 4 wank - get rid 

Bruno - 6.5 --> 5.5 an enigma - great when in space, love his divisive, prickish personality and has absurd quality but he's so chaotic especially in games where we have a lot of the ball or need some control

VDB - 4.5 -->6 flashed some promise finally before being injured

Sancho - 4 --> n/a - BUT I do think if he can get in the right frame of mind, ETH can get the best out of him (I do like the idea of him being central tbh, maybe he can get the time donny was getting there?)

Antony - 7 --> 6.5 I get why people are super frustrated by him, I think he is actually doing what ETH wants really well and is on track to contribute a decent Goals/assists return still BUT as Neville said - is his top end pace lacking a bit for the prem? and ultimately do we need more ? absolutely

Rashford - 7 --> 9 has gone super sayian - still should simplify things a little bit at times, but my word 

Garnacho - 7-->8 definitely has it - so exciting, ETH has him eating out the palm of his hand now too

Martial - 7.5 --> 6 Fair play for playing hurt when Mou had called him out for not doing it before, he's clearly bought in to ETH as well, but just can't stay healthy and other than decent hold up was meh while playing recently (IMO due to carrying the injury)

Ronaldo - 3 --> 10 - superb contribution to dressing room atmosphere since the WC

Elanga - 6 - still 6 - meh 

Pellistri - 7 - a bit of a favourite of mine tbh really want to see him get more time 

Weghorst - too early to tell, looks to be really good at holding it up and coming deep / pressing but lacking quality and pace in terms of goal threat 

Butland - meh

My ratings for how we've been since coming back from the WC (new in bold, I kept the old ones there just for reference / interest)
