    The newest addition from the academy scott mctominay, marking Banega and Hazard in two consecutive games, passing the ball to a marque signing who crossed the ball to another academy player who scored the winning goal against a top 4 squad in the premier league. My point?

    Which club can you name which has been as consistent in honouring the academy and the home grown values as Manchester United? What an inspiring message it is indeed for young talent who have posters of their heros in their room with the dream and ambition to wear the famous red shirt one day.

    Does the club get enough appraisal for this from the "critics"? ..

    I agree. Excellent stuff. The academy output of this great club is something that should make us all proud.

    Funny how a few weeks ago people were describing him as Cleverley MK2.

    He's doing everything right, seems to have a tremendous attitude, and it's been well documented that Carrick has been mentoring him week in week out. Working with the likes of he and Matic every day will be doing wonders for him.

    Every credit. Let's end this 'Cleverley MK2' sh!te once and for all.

    Do you not cite his mistake in Chelsea's first goal?

    But obviously that's not what the 'Cleverley MK2' comparison is referring to. It's referring to a United academy player who has gone on to be a bang average player since, which is awfully premature and unfair to say about McTominay

    It seemed like he thought Young was going to track Willian, but it was obvious Young couldn't see Willian and it was Scott's man to take. Bad mistake, but these mistakes will happen when blooding through a youngster. That mistake aside he has had a solid week for United and a solid career so far.

    Are young players not allowed to make mistakes? Shouldnt one praise the manager/club for giving the chance to a young club product to learn and to develop?

    It was a bad mistake however De Gea was also at fault. Thats football in a nutshell. Everyone makes mistakes, its up to you and your team to make amends.

    I love our academy and how impressive it is but odd time to make a thread given he failed to do his job of marking for the goal.

    Which should be allowed for a young player in order to learn and to develop?

    Sir Matt Busby - Busby Babes and G. Best.
    Sir Alex Ferguson - Fergie's Fledglings.
    Moyes - Januzaj.
    LVG - Rashford, Lingard, TFM and the others who have left.

    Now Mourinho,
    - Rashford, Pogba, Lingard, McTominay and the others who are on loans.
    - Gomes, O'hara, and Chong are on standby.

    Its more about giving the chance to a youth product to be in a position to develop. Isnt this game a good example of a match whereby a young player can make a mistake but show positive signs too?

    And Banega completed 105 passes and had 10 key passes(which was the highest in a CL match this season) so it is not like it was a good man marking job on him either.

    This makes me proud to be a United fan. Its amazing that United, despite the pressures of being one of the top European clubs, regularly gives chances to young players.

    Wasn’t Valencia playing him on when McTominay and others pushed up?

    thats debatable. he could have been playing Willian offside by not followinh im past Lindelof and Young, which would have been the case if Valencia wasnt playing him onside.

    Mtominay is young, he will make mistakes but hopefully learn from them.

    While I can't give Mourinho full credit for Pogba (world class signing) and Lingard (He won us the FA Cup under LVG), he is doing great with bringing up McTominay. He knows that fielding him next to Matic will do wonders to his career.

    Indeed. Mistakes all round there. Poor goal we gave away. Even DDG could have done better.

    Despite few mistakes, he is showing good signs. Any player who keeps two injured players and a 36 year old out of the team sheet deserves his own thread though.

    Well if Pogba was not acting like a kitty in front of their penalty box , there was not going to be any counter attack

    All that money spent on the academy at City and you have a manager who is suppsoed to have a reputation of giving young players a chance yet City have no academy players as a regular in the first team or even a one who makes the bench every week. Go WUM somewhere else.

    Not seeing a lot of talent in McTominay personally. Good attitude, hard worker but he looks like the kind of player who will play for a mid-table team in a few years. Hope to be proven wrong.

    The biggest compliment I can give our academy is that, the vast majority of graduates have an excellent attitude.

    I love seeing academy players in the first team, and I will never, ever understand those on here who seem so negative about that, or at least criticize others for getting 'too excited' about that. What else should we get too excited about? The fact that they're in the team is fecking brilliant.

    Great to see McTominay doing well - I’ve been very impressed with him despite not having heard much about him at youth level.

    Far better calibre and more likely to make it than the McNairs, Blackett, Loves etc who LvG just randomly decided to give game time.

    You get wound up easily then, I was just joking.
    On a serious note though, I thought he was much younger. He is not really a kid is he.

    And yet the media won't give a shit about it, and will never mention Jose's trust in the young lad.
