View Full Version : Ashley Young

MILAN – Ashley Young is officially an Inter player. The 34-year-old English defender arrives from Manchester United and has signed a contract lasting until 30 June 2020 with an option to extend for a further season.

“I want to become a professional footballer.” Ashley Young certainly had no need to repeat himself. He was just 16 years old, but readily admitted to his teacher at school that he had no plan B. Instead, his whole life was football ever since he joined the Stevenage Colts aged five, his local football team in the same town where Lewis Hamilton grew up, with both stars attending the same school.

But fast cars weren’t a priority for Ashley: for him it was all about football. Whether that was playing on the street with his brothers until it got dark, or in the living room, using the sofa as a goal. He used to dream of being as great as Ian Wright, the legendary Arsenal centre-forward. When he was ten, he jumped at the chance to train with Watford’s youth academy. Every day, he’d travel 40km there and 40km back, right up until the age 16. This was his first real test as a player and adolescent. It was also his first taste of being a part-time footballer, as he would attend school in the mornings before then training in the afternoon with Watford’s Under-16s and Under-17s. All the while, adults tried to explain to him that he should think of alternatives to football, although Young was determined throughout – a characteristic that has set him apart throughout his career.

This soon led to him making his debut at Watford, sealing promotion to the Premier League before then becoming Aston Villa’s most expensive signing in 2007. He was relentless, whether that be on the wing or in attack. Sir Alex Ferguson soon came calling in 2011 and since his move to the Red Devils, he made 261 appearances and scored 19 goals. His United honours’ list also includes one Premier League (2012/13, Sir Alex’s last league title), one FA Cup, one League Cup, three Community Shields and one Europa League.

As a speedy and skilful winger, he’s good at crossing and can beat a man. However, as he’s matured, so has his game, as he’s become increasingly defensive. An example of this has been his time spent at wing-back in a five-man midfield – a role embraced to such an extent that he was named as the best left-back at the 2018 World Cup.

Young now becomes the third English player to ever play for Inter, following in the footsteps of Gerry Hitchens and Paul Ince. The former played for Inter as a striker from 1961 to 1963, scoring 20 goals in 43 appearances while also winning one Scudetto. As for the Guv’nor, Ince spent two seasons at Inter from 1995 to 1997, making 73 appearances with a goalscoring tally of 13. As for Young’s international career, he’s scored seven goals in 39 matches for the Three Lions.

As a keen campaigner against racism, Young has led from the front for Manchester United – recently wearing the captain’s armband for the past three seasons. However, he’s now ready for a new adventure and on behalf of the entire Nerazzurri family, we’d like to wish our new signing all the very best.

#WelcomeAshley!

Welcome, I guess.
Honestly, I'm not enthused by any of the wingbacks we've been linked to in this mercato, and Young makes no exception. I realise you can't be picky in January - especially when you're on a tight budged - but all these rumours for the WBs positions (both in and out) give me the feeling that we're just throwing shit against the walls in hopes some of it may stick. I can live with it as a short term solution, but I insist we should do whatever we can to take Meunier on a free for next season. Big Rom, put in a nice word, will you? And if we can't get the Belgian, we'll still need to sign at least one really good starting WB for next season. Assuming we'll stick with the 3-5-2 formation, that is.

As for Young, he could have easily signed the extension United offered him. The fact that he opted instead for a 6-months loan in a new Country and a new league during which he will have to earn himself a contract for next season at least shows a good degree of self-esteem on his part. But I didn't expect anything less from someone who was once shat in the mouth by a pigeon and still carried on playing as if nothing had happened. Anyway, we probably decided to sign him because Asamoah is so fucked up that our medical staff has lost all hope on him. I also think we wanted someone more experienced (at high levels) than Biraghi on the left, so I expect Young to play quite regularly until the end of the season.

Apart of everything else, 6 months + 1 year option is a very good deal for us. If Ashley is able to fit in Conte's style, he'll be useful and could help us even next season. Otherwise he is leaving summer.

We don't need him. We've done quite well so far. We can see out the season (which I think we can) with just adding another central midfielder. Idgaff about the cost of this operation, just cos it's there and available doesn't mean we should grab it.

18 Jan 20, 10:17
I dislike this dude, primary reasons being -
1. He is from Manu. He is quintessentially the kind of player that Fergie used to like and make shine under him. Hate that fucking club.
2. Manu. Nuff said.
3. He is average. And English.
4. Manu.
5. Captain of that fucking piece of shit club.

But he is definitely better than Biraghi, and Asamoah as well for LWB. Better than D'Ambrosio, and Lazaro for RWB. He will be useful to us. And he is on a short contract, so no harm.

Do well, and make your detractors eat crow shit.

Bluenine
18 Jan 20, 10:18
The sad reality is that even a 34 year old Young, who was never a great player even when younger, will most likely improve our starting XI as LWB. Even if its for the very short term. Hopefully this means we will target a top LWB in the summer.

Bizarre transfer but alright. I guess because Asamoah is permanently injured (possibly dead? Haven't heard much from him lately) Lazaro is leaving, Biraghi is shite and Candreva, our best WB :yao2: isn't exactly in his prime footballing years anymore. Quite the collection of wingbacks we've accumulated. Fucking hell.

Go on Young. Surprise us lad.

I don't mind Young. Mainly coz he cost only 1.5m, and specially if its just a 18 month deal. Young can back up both the wingback roles. And I wouldn't be surprised if he is our best option for LWB this season, that is how shite our LWB options are at the mo.

Just one game and against Cagliari (each performance counts though and for obvious reasons) - he seemed good. Unlike Biraghi and Candreva, he at least tried and kinda succeeded to go past his opponent. Even though Candreva has been doing okish (forget Biraghi), they just simply can't get past their opponents and always go for back/side passes.

Biraghi is never there when we press and it hurt us.

Hopefully Young can sustain this form. United fans reading this can eat their heart out.

Speed and especially PASSING is essential for a wing back. And Young has them both. I’m sick of having wing back who cant pass to save their lives (Biraghi, Asamoah, D’Ambrosio and Candreva). Last full back with good passing skills was Cancelo.

Definitely a tangible step up from Biraghi, which isn't saying much but was greatly needed. His workrate is noticeable, and he had a great defensive play.

I hope we don't make the mistake of playing this guy every week for two months. That's how you send these older players spiraling.

At 34, he's doing a great job at probably the most physically demanding position in football. His fitness puts players way younger than him to shame. That's why I don't really buy the notion of players over 30 years old being perceived as fucking grandpas who collapse after walking 3 steps forward. He's only 34 for fuck's sake, not 94.

Some players do drop off massively around this age though, because of specific mixtures of personal discipline, careers spent playing too often without proper recovery time, and genetics. Lucky it doesn't seem to be the case here. Overall I liked Young's performance, he did what was expected of a wingback.

brehme1989

Yes. I don't see Skriniar having any wage issues, I'm sure he'll sign a new contract, otherwise we'll just sell him in the summer to City/United/Barca. Same with Lautaro, getting 110mil would help build a better team since we don't have infinite money. Imagine getting Kumbulla, Werner, a more defensive type midfielder that could be bench option for Brozo and a better wingback than Candreva just from selling Lautaro and adding some pocket change.

It's smart. I'm not afraid. We always find great strikers.
We can always find another Lautaro and another Skriniar.

Skriniar signed an extension till 2023 which has no release clause less than a year ago. We are in no rush to offer him another extension or sell him in the summer.

Another great performance again, can easily see him here again next season/ hope he is!!Stop it. He's doing OK because people were expecting some type of meme player (which he is not), but he's in his honny moon peried right now and will most likely turn out to become like smalling who was playing well at first but now is back to his old self.

Let’s wait and see then. However, based on what Conte has done with others this season I think we’ll continue to see his best past the ‘honeymoon’ period! And if not, then we won’t renew and get a new wing back in the summer.

Motm probably. Scored one, assisted another but Lautaro couldn't stay onside, dribbled 3 players at one point and almost drew a penalty.

Pleasant surprise. Hated the thought of getting him, as I thought he would be crap and he always looked like a bit of a prick in the games I've seen him in - but he's been hard-working and done really well for us. In all honestly I wouldn't have an issue with him staying next season, ideally as a backup to a starting LWB. I know he's 34 but the guy is really fit - he looks to be in better shape than Biraghi tbh.

Still looks like a prick honestly, but he's our prick.

He is a pretty cool player, tactically and technically, nice, nice. Finally a WB with some high football IQ.

He was very good. Very active and was pretty good with the ball. To me in this Lazio match he made a real difference to Biraghi, earlier it wasn't the case for me.

Brehme hails Young and Conte

Inter legend Andreas Brehme is impressed with Antonio Conte and Ashley Young. “The English player is strong in technique and mentality.”

Brehme was part of the all-conquering Inter side of the late 1980s and early 1990s, playing in Young’s role of left-back.

“He’s a great player and has many years of experience in England,” Brehme told Inter TV.

“I think he’s a fine left-back, strong in technique and mentality.”
:troll:

Does the German also see similarities between Conte and his own Nerazzurri coach Giovanni Trapattoni?

“Both wave their arms around constantly during matches. They work with sheer passion. Inter play good football, they held Atalanta 1-1 at home, who are a great team. I think they only really dropped points with Cagliari.

“It’s a pity they lost to Lazio at the Olimpico, but the season isn’t over yet. Inter play very, very well and still have a good chance.

“I always like coming back here to Milan, as I still have many friends here, including former teammates. I remember the chaos from the fans when we won the Scudetto with new records, and the UEFA Cup. There was such a great atmosphere.”
