He looks like the late actor Norman Wisdom.
I'd love to see him get a fair amount of minutes next to Herrera. I feel like Herrera will be incredibly protective of him, just a hunch.
He needs a better hairstyle. Should tag along with Pogba when he goes to his barber.
Glad for him for his debut.
Wouldn't surprise me to see him get 25 against Southampton, depending on how we're doing. The coaching staff are in love with him, no surprise though, they've all been to see him in person for the reserves.
Garner has apparently played at CB before? Is that true?
What's the chances of him playing the hybrid CDM/CB type role in the defensive line?
He played CB when he was younger I believe, he's played there a few times this season and has been very good there. I think his long term future will be in midfield though, young CMs with his ability to control a game are pretty rare.
Absolutely brilliant today. Well done lad.
Instead of saying he needs to bulk up, I'll say he needs to eat more. Has he been on a hunger strike?
Decent debut and beautiful reaction from the bench

His haircut makes him look like a FM regen!
There's such a good feeling around the club now. It's incredible.
No matter who we go for as the next permanent manager, we must retain Ole, Carrick, McKenna and Phelan as a part of the club going forward.
I thought he looked very slow, hard to tell though.
I like it. I was very glad Young scored not only for killing the game but to give us the breathing space to bring a lad on. I'm excited for Garner and happy the coaches made a bit of fuss of him as he made his bow. Also his hair's fine, it reminded me of Gary Nev at a similar age.
Sublime transition from off-field to on-field. Looks a bit like Messi so don;t expect anything less than world-class form him as of now.
Congrats to the kid. Brilliant future ahead.
I actually thought the opposite. Something about his build made me think he was going to be quite slow, but I was pleasantly surprised when he seemed to have a decent turn of pace.
He isn't very slow
Been clear for a while that he’s seen as very special by the staff at the club. He went on tour last year having just turned 17, and got a start out there which all of them didn’t. He’s also featured with more squads than any other kid this season. Coupled with the fact that he’s one of the youngest of our hopefuls, that really says a lot.
I like to think that the reason Carrick got a grin out of him as he shook hands was because he told him "make me proud, you're the new me".
Even the Russian feed I was watching was clearly in on the message, the commentator clearly said something relating him to Carrick just after he came on.
Usually it’s us fans who get giddy about youth players and make those ‘new version of a great player’ comparisons, yet OGS has publicly said in an interview that he’s the new Carrick. That’s some pretty high praise for a 17 year old. I look forward to seeing him play more in the future.
Does he have a chance to play some time against PSG?
I hope 4 years from now he'll be controlling our midfield with United back to being a proper powerhouse in Europe.
We have very few options on the bench, especially if Martial is not ready. Garner is one of those, so “some game time” he might get. But it is more likely for Gomes, Chong or Greenwood to get time as we won’t have anyone else on the bench from our attacking contingent
It's almost certain he'll be on the bench, barring injury. If we need to replace a midfielder it'll likely be him coming on, unless we're chasing it late in the match in which case Gomes might get the nod.
I’m intrigued to see how he develops. I’ve had high hopes for many exciting kids in his position not make it here. The likes of Rothwell, Pearson, Harrop, Petrucci and Matty James. All great talents in their age groups.
None of them made it due to injuries, bad coaches, Louis Van Gaal, not crossing the chasm between youth level to first team.
I’m glad Ole’s here with his back room staff. There’s always a lot of talent. Some guys get up and own their progress like pogba. Others need to be taken care of when they cross that chasm of doom from youth football to first team.
If ole can nurture some of these lads properly, we will save £100s million.
This guy has something in him. Looks matured beyond his age. His movements were good, his anticipation of opponents were good too. He will be regular in a year or two.
Got new deal
Not quite the 5 years of McTominay but I’m sure he’s chuffed with 3
