Can't wait to see Gomes and Chong with the first team.
Did not know he could play that deep. He's making it look effortless and that is a sign of a truly class player.
As someone mentioned previously, I'm happy they're slowly bringing him along the ranks and not rushing him or Chong. I can't wait for a year or two when we replace Lingard with him.
And greenwood. Most exciting batch since Ravel Adnan and the Keanes etc. Reckon there’s at least 2 potential high class first team players in there now. Gomes is the one I’m actually least convinced by. I know he’s a total baller at this level but I have a feeling he’s not near as much of a José player as Chong or Greenwood. I reckon he’ll go out on loan next year but as always with our youth: who really knows? I genuinely thought Morrison was destined to become one of the best players in the league
I'm very wary of pinning too many hopes on Gomes and Chong.
I see too many obvious weaknesses that will get amplified in the first team. I mean, all players have weaknesses when they're in at the deep end. But at youth level, you don't want them to be too easily exposed. There's plenty of time for them to iron them out, though.
Greenwood's another matter. He looks great to my eyes.
Gomes has been better than Chong this season and being a Mourinho player is irrelevant as he won't be here long term. I'd also wager there is zero chance we'll loan Angel next season.
I guess you’re right and he’ll spend a full season in U21s next year? If he does a Lingard that’s still another 4/5 seasons and a few loans before he’s properly getting games at first team, comparing them due to size and possible strongest position. I really hope the 3 players mentioned above can get cameos here this season as it feels like they are exceptional in their age group and blooding the very best youngsters is what I like the most about being a united fan.
I just can't see us throwing him out to a lower league side due to his size. But then again, yea I suppose we did do that with Lingard. Hopefully with Butt in charge though he'll be more protective in whether to send him out or not and where. Because our loan club choices are often very poor. If he is sent out I'd prefer it to be abroad or to a manager connected to the club and who knows Angel well and won't just bench him after one game for being small. I just don't trust a random loan club with Angel's development.
Would love it if they could get a few cameos and it is certainly what I like to see the most too.
