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, 11:17
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, 11:18
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.

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.

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.

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.”

Fabrizio Romano:


Ashley Young to sign one-year contract extension at Inter

Internazionale will reward Ashley Young with a new one-year deal after the full-back impressed his manager, Antonio Conte, and the club’s hierarchy after joining on an initial six-month contract from Manchester United.

The 34-year-old made seven appearances for Inter before football in Italy shut down. Young signed for the remainder of the 2019-20 season with an option for another year, which Inter are ready to trigger.

The club are third in Serie A, nine points behind the leaders, Juventus, who have 12 games remaining to Inter’s 13. Conte’s side are also in the last 16 of the Europa League, where they are due to face Getafe.

Inter made the contract offer this week and the former England full-back has accepted the terms and is ready to sign it.

Young spent nine years at Old Trafford after joining from Aston Villa in 2011, winning one Premier League title as well as the FA Cup, League Cup and the Europa League.

This month he shared his thoughts on what do to in lockdown, tweeting: “This may sound harsh but treat everybody that’s not in your household as if they have the virus. You just don’t know! Most importantly, just stay safe! This is what we are doing here [in Italy], it’s not an overreaction, it’s staying safe. And just remember others should be looking at you in this way as well. It’s not horrible, it’s a way of keeping your distance to ultimately help save lives.”

I'm not sure. He was on £120k a week at United, gross, so probably like 3m a year in Inter reporting terms.

He's potentially eligible for the foreigner tax relief, though, as his contract in Inter will expire mid-way through next year, which might give him long enough to be tax resident in Italy in 2020-2021.

He can have a one off game as far as I'm concerned. He has been a steady performer for most of his time here so far, and we always knew he wasn't gonna be reliable defensively. Cost of doing business with three in the back.
Generally speaking I like Young way more than I expected. He is quick with the ball, doesn't take too much time with decision making. He crosses decently, he is good near the touchline and rarely fucks up so that we lose possession. Let's also take into account that he is literally having a crash course in terms of Italian football, I expect him to be a lot better next season if he stays.

20 Jul 20, 11:07
Once it was clear that both wing backs were faster and stronger than ours, we should have tactically adapted by changing to back 4, or pushed the WBs further back so there was less space behind them.

We did neither so both wingbacks consistently got raped. How many 1-2s between Peres and Pellegrini? Or the entry pass where he dummied and got past Young? In all cases, if he was in a traditional WB position, there would be much less space behind him for any of those plays to work.

He's surprised me quite positively, but he can't speak any Italian yet, as far as I can tell. Every time I've heard him speak during a match, it was in English, be it with teammates, opponents or the ref. That's got to be working against him. I noticed even Eriksen called 'mano' to the ref after his freekick hit some guy's arm.

I noticed the same. But then his performance speaks for himself.

I don't think this whole English speaking thing is bad. When faced with weaker "provincial" teams, I'd even prefer the coach to give instructions in English so as to conceal our tactical changes. We have a squad that's quite capable (and educated) to understand English, barring Brozo of course.

It's great to watch him do well, gives everything on the pitch and this wing back role suits him so well. He was attacking left winger who won PL young player of the year and was in PL team of the year as LW, started over Di Maria, then started to play as LB and played well. He is a great professional. Apart from CB and GK he played in every position.

Hopefully he will win Serie A before he retires.

He's definitely been a positive acquisition. His role next season should be more limited, he's a liability against stronger teams but his grit has been influential against minnows.

But let's not forget that we're paying him almost twice as much as Lautaro currently earns, to give some perspective.

I think having Lukaku here and to some extent the arrival of Moses has helped him settle, otherwise he probably could have struggled as he has shown zero willingness to learn even the most basic Italian.

Young: 'I would leave Inter for Watford'

Inter full-back Ashley Young has said he would leave Italy right away if he could return to Watford.

The 35-year-old former England international left Watford in January 2007, when he joined Aston Villa in the Premier League.

He then moved to Manchester United in July 2011 and spent eight and a half years at Old Trafford before joining Inter in January.

Young’s contract at San Siro expires in June 2021 and he has played three games in Serie A already this season, but he admitted he would leave Milan if Watford came calling.

“If I could go back to play there [at Watford] again, I would walk from Italy right now,” Young told The Hornets podcast Golden Tales.

“Because it’s what I know, it’s where I come from and what allowed me to be who I am and get to where I am. They gave me a humble start.”

Anyone in that social bubble should be forced to isolate for 2 weeks from the most recent positive test. It's just ridiculous to try to play football in these circumstances.

If it was a random player out on an international who got it, that's a separate issue - Skriniar and Bastoni is bad enough, and seems likely they might be part of the same Inter strain, but the fact that its in our bubble is a mess.


You cant play football in these circumstances. Games need to be cancelled.

According to reports, will be unavailable for Genoa but maybe for Champions League.

Young is my least concern atm. I'm much more concerned about Kolarov. Bastoni/Skriniar has to take his place asap so we can stop bleeding goals.

He had a defensive fuckup which could have been costly but apart from that he was a major improvement over our other options on the left. Good to have him back.

They gave Barella a 10 higher speed rating, I'd be livid too.

It doesn't matter how fast you run. If you are not CR7 you will get lower pace with age on FIFA. How can he be livid about a game he doesn't play if he doesn't even know the factor about old age= low pace? :lol:

So because the game is stupid, a player whose profile is depicted on it may not have an opinion on it? :D

You misunderstood me. He doesn't play the game which means he doesn't understand the game and the concept about an older player getting a lower pace. Which makes his whole fucking opinion dumb.

He can have whatever opinion he wants, doesn't change the fact that its a dumb one.
