Not sure where you were standing skybluesaint but I am in the middle of reviewing my photos and Mr Ashton looks very busy to me. Lots of him supporting the play, making that gorgeous pass to Dicko that led to Foden's second try and flying out of the traps at the restarts.
He looked more than interested to me.
I have reviewed my thoughts as I seem to be in a minority! I did say "half interested" and agree Ash had a reasonable game, with the strong, intelligent run to set up Fodes second try the highlight. But i was thinking of how he used to do all that AND pop up all over the pitch to take off-loads, re-defining the role of a winger. He did all the basics well enough, i agree, so perhaps i was being unfair in measuring his performance by his previous high standards.
