    Good awareness of space and players around him as he receives the ball, uses it well to help create that extra yard to squeeze out some of those passes

    Good talent but Garner seems to me even tall enough for Mourinho. Let's see how boys develop in the shadow of obvious attacking talents

    The quality of these u18s is astonishing, especially in comparison to the turds in the u23s.

    Genuine scope for a few of them to threaten the first team within 2/3 years, such seems to be the level.

    Nice post, cheers. Some lovely passes there and it is actually quite rare to see that at youth level, excluding the likes of Beckham, Scholes, Fletcher and (ahem) David Jones that I can remember.

    Yeah his passing looks very good. Garner (especially) and Puigmal also played well in that game. Heard that Garner overall is doing good this year. Hopefully this bunch don't get stagnated in U23 like Buffonage, Boonen and some others who played well for U18s in last year or two. Although I would say its hard to predict who will make to 1st team.

    Defo one of the underrated players of his age group in the academy, surprised this thread isn't full. Whenever I get a chance to watch the 18's he never fails to impress, very good passing technique and close control. Looks like he can develop into a real PL level talent if he works hard for sure.

    Congrats to him.

    Been as impressed with Levitt as I have been with Garner

    A player like him is what we need in the first team at the moment - so comfortable on the ball, rarely losses it, keeps it moving quickly and an ability for a killer pass too

    But ya, very underrated player, him and Garner have been a joy to watch this year

    He was class last night, one of the best players on the pitch along with Greenwood and Garner. You'll start hearing more and more about him as the seasons goes on, he's very good player.

    Yep, he's been fantastic. Played a good game for the u23s last night too.

    Him, Garner and Gomes. Hopefully one of them is able to make it into the first team by the time Matic and Herrera are finished.

    What are your thoughts on his chances of getting a loan move next season (league 1/holland), I think he needs the challenge, his quality and performances this season defo merits some first team action somewhere

    I think Nicky Butt should look to get him to a team that fits his style or it will be a waste of time

    Yeah most definitely, I look at what Chelsea did with Mason Mount, a very similar player, very talented technically, a season in Holland and it really helped build his confidence, even played a part in his England call up earlier this season, so the staff should really look into it. I really think he has the potential to be a United first team player.

    Unfortunately for him we have too many CMs at the moment in the first team (counting Garner). Deserves to go to summer tour with his form though.

    He looks a very classy player whenever i've seen him play. His passing is a joy at times and i'm a big fan of the young lad.

    I think his passing technique when it comes to reverse passes and sometimes longer balls stands out from the rest. Obviously a midfielder needs to have more to his game than just making fancy looking passes at times. But if he can continue to develop the rest of his game to a good standard, then that extra quality on some of his passes will take him a level above

    The new Oliver Norwood. Good player, but not for Man United. Can't really see it. I think even a superior footballer like James Garner will struggle so this is no criticism.

    He will have a good career. Yes, could turn out to be Norwood/Drinkwater level rather than elite but the lad can certainly pass the ball.

    Like how Levitt has developed in last year or so. His passing is exquisite as well his eye for passes are not ordinary. I see Levitt developing into Luka Modric type of player.

    I suspect this is correct. Time will tell though.
