    Two more goals for Greenwood today against Liverpool u18s. I can’t wait to see him in action for the first team. The most exciting talent we’ve had in the Academy since Pogba, for me.

    He struggled in open play at times yet had a hand in all 3 goals and the red card, the sign of a good player.

    Anybody know why he takes free kicks with his weaker foot?

    He kicks equally well with both feet iirc. Some aren’t even sure if he has a favored foot.

    From everything I’ve heard, he doesn’t really have a weaker foot.

    Does he take them with his left on the other side of the box? How about penalties?

    Doesn’t look very weak.

    I've seen him taking pens with his right. He missed them from what I remember.

    I am pretty sure we could use his weaker foot for scoring some direct free kicks... He really, really is knocking on first team's door - however our attack in general is performing well recently, which of course make it hard for him. Too many attackers eager to play. Can Mason play as a right forward, by the way?

    I feel that in the beginning he will play wide similar to how Rashford had been playing. And similar to him I think he can play as the wide forward on either side as he is 2 footed.

    His last match compilation showed him always dribbling with his left foot but then he scored 2 free kicks today with his right foot. I'm not sure he has a favored foot.

    It will be really interesting to see how the club manages his transition to the first team. He is an insanely talented kid and his style of play fits really well with how the first team currently plays.

    If they can get another couple of years from Sanchez, they may not have to replace him with a major world class signing.

    For me he is the most 2 footed player I've ever seen. I mean even in today's compilation look at what he has done.

    Mostly dribbles with left foot.
    The cross/pass from left for the red card incident was with his left foot. BTW what a pass that was.
    Then he is taking corners with his right foot and scoring 2 free kicks with his right foot.
    :eek::eek:

    And I didn't know he takes free kicks too.

    YOu noticed how the defenders spaz-out whenever Mason has the ball -- they just dont know which side he will go. That hesitation allows him to blow by them or creates a gap for him to shoot.

    I usually hate step overs because they seem more fluff, but love it when Greenwood uses it because of his two footedness. It's really effective for him.

    His style of play is very similar to Van Persie. Very exciting.

    Thought he was predominant left footed but those free kicks - feck me senseless, there’s two footed and then there is Bobby Charlton and Greenwood was channeling his Sir Bobby there - sheesh.

    It really does, doesn't it? You just know that when he does his little step overs he's gonna put in a good cross or get a shot on target. And most of them ends up in goals!

    If Ole gets the job full time I reckon it won't be too long before we see this lad make an appearance in the first team

    I think there's going to be quite a few making a step up next season so he'll likely be saved for the season after. Gomes, Chong and Garner are all further along their development which is a scary thing to say.

    I'd say watching that that he's left dominant, but has been coached from a young age to use both feet, the best time to learn. An invaluable skill that not enough players push on with.

    I think he'll make an appearance before the end of the season. The issue is going to be how often he can be involved. Rashford got his chance because we had literally no other option at the time, that isn't the case right now and probably won't be for a while.

    Martial - Rashford - Greenwood would be nice to see though :devil::devil:

    Is there anyone else who uses one feet for dribbling and another for set pieces?

    My hopes for him are so high that there’s only one way and it’s down. I won’t be surprised if he is as good as Rooney/Ronaldo at their peak.

    Agree and I've watched Utd youth football for a long time. The biggest hurdle and hardest transition where most struggle is the move to the men's game (both physically and mentally). It's amazing how many it finds out....

    I'm hoping he will be on the bench tomorrow.

    We should not over rotate, but a few players should be completely rested and that leaves spaces on the bench. Out of the 4 youngsters who went to Dubai, Greenwood has been the only player not to get in the matchday squad. Every one deserves their chance and it's about time he got his

    Would really like to see him and Chong get some minutes in the first team this season instead of Mata. I like that he can play anywhere in the front three as well. Against Liverpool he did well to get some crosses in from the right.

    Tbf that was more because the ground was soft and he lost his footing.

    I'm not trying to get ahead of myself but he's clearly going to be world class. Matteo Messi and Cristiano Jr are going to have posters of him on their walls.

    It's interesting that they seem to be playing him more and more as a RW in recent games, wonder if that's to prepare him for a slot in the first team :drool:

    I'm excited, against my better judgement. I'd love to see him in the first team this season, he's dominating every u18 game by the looks of it and he seems to have already made the step up of training with the seniors.

    Should give him some time with the reserve team playing against adults. Not a fan of throwing him straight into the first team.

    Hoping for Doncaster, Barnet, Millwall or Wimbledon at Old Trafford in the FA draw. Surely we'd see Chong, Gomes and Greenwood making appearances at some point!

    Would love that. A mix of youth and experience. Something like this:

    Romero
    Dalot-Bailly-Jones-Young
    McTominay-Fred
    Chong-Gomes-Sanchez
    Lukaku

    If things go well let Greenwood have like 20-30 minutes as well, if not then bring on Rashford, Pogba and Martial to save the day

    At home against Doncaster / Barnet / Millwall / Wimbledon while we're in a battle for top four so could do with resting some players? Why not? We did it against Reading and got by and these teams are worse.

    Mctominay and Dalot were the only ones in that lineup and Chong got 30 mins (way more than these kids usually get which is 5 mins at the end)

    Ole might well start one of them, he isn't starting 3.
