    Did anyone watch the training session? Did SAF and the coaches spend a lot of time with him?

    "Cinco?!" :eek:

    Training sessions in Houston have been by invite only, so unlikely unless someone on these boards are really connected in Houston.

    Hernandez is 5'9 according to wiki -- doesn't look like it, does he?

    Check out the Blog and the Life as a Red video - right at the end they show a snippet of him training and looks like he scores. Looked very quick.

    At this rate we could sell him at a profit.







    Great debut I thought, if only Gibson wasn't sluggish in midfield and could find his runs more often...He really does remind me of a young Michael Owen. Blistering pace. The run he made for his first chance was brilliant, and for the goal itself, great run and the finish was class. Looks to be a brilliant acquisition.

    Really looking forward to watching him this season. I think he's going to be fabulous. He was so impressive in those 30 mins.

    Looked very impressive for someone who hasn't played for a few weeks now. I'm loving the pacce, his natural instinct to pressure from the front and the runs he's looking to make. The finish was very cool as well (even though I suspect he was offside).

    Looks like a younger, less greedy version of Mickey Owens (who I think he will be ahead of in terms of selection).

    We finally have a player who is looking to play off the shoulder of the last defender (which should help if he does play alongside Berbatov or Rooney).

    His timing is brilliant and he is very composed in front of goal. I wasn't overly impressed with his link up play but he was impressive otherwise.

    Good performance, like his movement off the ball and has pace to burn. Will probably be 3rd choice striker behind Wazza and Berba.

    I believe his WC performances and goal today, as well as Kiko's goals have ended Diouf's United career considering the 25-man rule is being introduced.

    He was really fecking fast! Hope he gets some first team appearances this year. Since I watched Olè's debut season as a warm-up to the match, maybe we can get an Olè-like first season? Well, I can dream, can't I? :D

    This guy can bring Carrick back. Carrick works magic with such players.

    even before the goal he was making a fantastic fading run and would have had acres of space.

    really knows how to attack those channels and I bet defenders will be shitting themselves.

    I'll admit. He really impressed me. In that mood he will make an impact in any game.

    He threatened them almost immediately and that finish was just clinical. I feel confidence in his future.

    Rooney and Hernandez will pull defences apart. This little guy is exceptional at finding space.

    It's the smartness of his off the ball movement that impressed me, watching the goal closely, he knew he was at an offside position... ran back a few yards pointed to Scholes to pass over there and ran for it ! Boy, he was blazing fast with great acceleration...

    I don't think I've seen many forwards do that.... Rooney does it and scores a few goals... I expect Chicharito will be pulling this off all season and hopefully Fletch + Scholes + Carrick + Ando will have a good enough vision to pull off the through ball...

    I think Berbatov and Hernandez will be a great partnership, which solves the problem of our reliance on Rooney

    He has feck the prom queen confidence, his finish was superbly weighted and his movement is a dream for midfielders with an eye for a pass.

    With so many youngsters knocking on the door, do we have room for Owen? These guys need 1st team opportunities and if we get knocked out of the cups early on they're just not going to get them.
