    The fact he's literally 2 footed, he can shoot amazingly with both feet. His shooting is usually very hard low and in the corners.

    His dribbling is very natural, he isn't a kick and run player but travels with the ball at high speed. He's very skillful and loves step overs as he approaches his marker, it works really well with his 2 footed ability as the defender can't guess which side he's going to turn.

    His touch, passing and vision are top notch. He works very hard. He seems a big game player as he scored a hattrick against Chelsea in the FA youth cup, and 2 goals against liverpool in their recent derby.

    He's very consistent, he has a 1:1 goal/game ratio this year. You just need to watch him to tell he's going to be absolutely class. Whenever I've watched him he's the best player on the pitch. I think we need to ease him into the first team like we've been doing, but I have full faith that he will take his chance when he gets it.

    Takes his first touch with right and left foot
    Dribbles and passes mostly with his left
    Takes and scores 2 freekicks with his right
    Takes corners with his left and right

    This guy is gonna be insane :lol:. His balance when dribbling is fantastic, decision making, showing for the ball and passing is all very impressive for his age. It's like men against boys in that video.

    This kid has world class wrote all over him.

    Just hope he turns out to be smarter than Rashford. Rashford is turning out to be a selfish player just looking out for himself which will eventually affect the team.

    Rashford is technically and intellectually primitive - neither him nor Lingard will be anywhere near the England squad by 2022, such is the depth of attacking talent on the horizon for England.

    Greenwood could be the most golden of that golden generation; he’s a fantastic footballer, and oozes elite class.

    I can see Rashford staying around in the long term, and being a regular option from the bench etc, but if the club can keep Martial, cultivate Mason’s talent at a versatile #9£ and sign Sancho, there’s no way he eclipses and displaces any of those three.

    Yup, pretty much! :lol:

    @AP88 it is possible to compliment a player without shitting on another. It’s good, you should try it!

    Rashford is inconsistent, not 'primitive'. In terms of technical ability and decision making he can be great at times, while at others he's all over the place. I'm unsure if he'll be good enough to be our starting #9 throughout the majority of his career, but 'primitive' is going significantly overboard.

    Wow, you must really not rate Rashford at all, you had to post that three times! This isn't Welbeck we're talking about. Rashford will go down as a United legend IMO, he's only going to get better from here on.

    Is he trolling though? Can't say I rate Rashford's technical ability. Also can't say I know much about his intellectual level :lol:

    Rashford is an intelligent footballer. When Rashford first broke onto the scene, you could see his runs off the ball. What he lacks is consistency in his decision making. He perhaps get caught in two minds, but the ideas are there. Lingard is a very intelligent footballer too. His off the ball runs and movement is what other ex-players always talk about when they discuss Lingard. Both players have reasonable technique too. I think describing Rashford as primitive is hyperbole.

    Regarding your comment about England 2022, well its quite a leap of faith. The majority of youth players considered "good" or "elite" do not make the next step. It might happen, but I'd say its unlikely. Also, whether or not they are picked for the international squad does not determine their ability. For example, Martial was not selected for France.

    Dunno why this keeps having to turn into a Rashford vs Greenwood debate, like Rashford vs Martial does it really matter? They both play for us so we should want them to both do well. Rashford's definitely inconsistent and a little selfish but when he's on form he can be unplayable, he's definitely not "technically and intellectually primitive".

    10 mins cameo vs 2 years of banging goals for Man United. What a judgement.

    And if an "intellectually primitive" player has so many goals for United we must all be single digit IQ pawns?

    Exactly. Few also underestimate what Rashford has achieved in his short career and fail to see how hard it is to step up from youth level to first team.

    It's great that these young players play for us, I will never understand how anyone can think Rashford is limited technically.

    He is not even ManUtd fan, he admitted he is a City fan somehow he is allowed to troll so blatantly.

    This isn't even the worst post he made, that should tell everything.

    Lines are being drawn in the sand for the next round of 'told you so's' about our own players.

    In short, Greenwood will win the Ballon D'Or while Rashford sits at home using his primitive intellect to open a tub of Cart D'Or within 3 years.

    You can quote me on that.

    Best ever - there's nothing he can't do. He's got 3 feet and has broken the land speed record. He eats footballs and shits them over the goal line like some amphetamine-crazed super snake. He's that good.

    Because he's being compares to the likes of Martial and now Greenwood. Who are superior in a technical sense.

    He isn't limited technically compared to them. Martial can only dream of striking the ball like Rashford does and that's technical too.

    Doesn’t seem to be named in any of the England underage squads unless he made the under 17’s which I couldn’t find.

    Mehh, it's like saying that Bale isn't limited technically in comparison to Neymar, because Neymar can only dream of striking a ball like Bale.

    Oh yea I was just pointing out that Kane was similarly a very highly rated youth player and was seen as a massive talent by Spurs and England. Comparing beyond that, like you said would involve hypotheticals and honestly just be semantics. Both huge talents at youth level. If Greenwood can follow in Kane's footsteps I'll be ecstatic.

    I wasn't comparing Rashford to Neymar though was I?

    Edit: Rashford has areas of his game that are stronger than Martial, technicality isn't one of them.

    Well that's what I'm saying. If you compare Rashford to Neymar and say he is lacking technically then yeah, it's correct. Not compared to Martial.

    Ugh. Rashford is definitely limited technically. So was Chicharito. Doesn’t mean he can’t be useful.

    Why can’t we just praise Greenwood’s talent.

    All hail the the savior! He is come!

    Really really need to relax about Greenwood. He's got raw, raw talent that is above his weight for a 17 year old. Let's see him involved in a goal first and foremost and see how he kicks on from there.

    He's within the first team squad, albeit with injuries to Lingard and Mata. He hasn't played more than 25 minutes in a league game nor has he assisted or scored a goal.

    Kiko Macheda has done more than Greenwood has in his two appearances. So let's just chill a bit and appreciate that United have another promising youngster. No need to build him up any further because he has not deserved it nor have we seen how he reacts to any successes in the first team.

    Even next season I see him being involved in Cup matches perhaps against lesser opponents.
    Ole and Phelan will see what he can do in training and make their decisions.

    One for the future as Fergie used to say.

    You/we don’t get to determine that tbh. That’s basically like you saying you hope he was less good. The fact that he’s as talented as he is why the expectation is building.

    Hopefully it was a 24 hour bug as with Lukaku out there's a real chance for him to get some game time against Wolves.
