    Ebony Salmon is an amazing name.

    I don’t follow the women’s game but I’m interested in watching our team. Who are the noteable names here? Anything interesting?

    Set it to record. Will watch it later with interest. Hope they make sure they get plenty of screen time.

    They should make MUTV free for the day.

    Very pleased to see those lists. Particularly a nice statement of intent to see United rounding up some of their old youth team players like Katie Zelem who has come back from Juventus and some local rising stars like Ella Toone (who's only 18) and who has already played in City's first team.

    I can't embed tweets but managed to get onto the site and it made really interesting reading. It is very exciting.

    I knew a lot of them were our juniors. I hadn't realised quite how many until today. It's more or less exactly what I hoped would happen. Really pleased to see it and really glad that they wanted to come back.

    It's a curious one, seeing a player, particularly one that young, moving up from London this early in the life of the United team. She's very much a rising star as well, so the football bug obviously runs strongly in the family.

    Just been singing Reece James's praises in another thread. Hope she plays like him!

    I hadn't realised that he'd been loaned to Wigan - weirdly just as Reece James was leaving them to join Sunderland, that's just too strange.

    I can see why the United move would work for the family.

    Wigan must like the name :D

    Looking at her picture she certainly looks like she'll be a strong player like he is. Hopefully she has similar technical ability too.

    Some of the replies on the tweets are horrendous.

    Expected unfortunately, but revolting. Hope the players have their social media accounts on blackout for a week. Some people are scum.

    There's a quick guide at:
    https://www.ourgamemag.com/2018/07/13/manchester-united-squad-profiles/

    From the outside looking in, young squad, lots of potential. Some experienced internationals. A lot of players that either Casey Stoney or Willie Kirk have worked with before. A lot of players who were in United's youth program but who had to go elsewhere to play.

    Ebony Salmon is an awesome name for a footballer. Any relation to Conor?

    Would of been nice of the club to give their ages as well. Too many players to google every one of them.

    Ignore that, just seen the OGM article @jojojo posted.

    Yeah, he’s Sammon (that was the joke gif)

    He had my all time favourite footballer nickname. He used to play for UCD (university affiliated team) and ended up being called “The Sammon of College” (niche Irish humour tbf)
