    Emeran is French. Odubeko and Sotona is Irish. Iestyn Hughes is Welsh. The rest is pretty much English (Polakowski is eligible for Poland).

    It'd normally be leukaemia in a teenager I'd guess, survival rates are good for that with modern treatment. Not that the type matters I suppose but great to hear he's recovered.

    Odubeko, Sotona, Shoretire are all of Nigerian heritage.

    Can also imagine Sotona wouldn't be too far off eligibility for England being in the schooling system for a few years now, permitting he's been here long enough that is.

    Well... We are going to just sell/release everyone from that group are we? Good for Laird/Williams/Bernard/Mengi though.

    Does the Man United Premier Cup still exist (world wide U15s tourny)? Always looked at that as the worlds most competitive youth tournament and to gauge the up and coming youngsters about to become scholars. Not sure if it stopped with our Nike sponsorship as I think it was also called the Nike Cup(?)

    Can't sell him until he's 18 to a foreign club and he wants to go to a top foreign club. They have made it known that their club needs to sell players and that's their business model as a club.

    U23s lost 1-3 to Reading in PL International Cup. Levitt slipped taking a pen yet still found the net.



    Shocking decision to award the penalty, though probably didn't look quite as ridiculous in real time as it does on the replay.



    Traore and Ramazani started. Stanley and Galbraith on as subs.

    Kovar, O’Connor, Ercolani, Bernard, Williams B. (Tanner 78): Levitt, Barlow, Traore (Stanley 73); Bohui, Burkart (Galbraith 63), Ramazani.

    Warren and Buffonge played on trial for Bolton U23s last night. Buffonge scored in a 3-3 draw with Barnsley.

    Think it also says the big three in Portugal are looking at him and they obviously have a good track record of spotting young talent.

    A bit off topic but said in the article that Manucho is now 35! :eek:

    Portuguese clubs are more inclined to take the risk on players from Portuguese colonies like Angola as they are eligible for Portuguese nationality, also they kinda stockpile talent in Portugal as their B teams play in the league as well as having a competitive 23's league.

    Behave yourself, the Academy system is absolutely blighted by African players with dubious passports, it's not racist. it's a fact, I see it week in, week out. Unfortunately a lot of Academy coaches turn a blind eye to it because it gives them an advantage.

    Impressive close control, dribbling, agility and acceleration, reminds me of Robben the way he dribbles.

    SERIOUSLY

    Also, call this a very simple logic but the way I see it is, you wouldn't have got offended if you weren't being racist.

    And yeah of course there are a few that get through because of dodgy agents etc, but to then say 'blighted by African players' is actually very racist and untrue, you'll find it's a problem that happens across the 7 seas, not just resigned to one continent. The few you hear of are just the ones that have been caught, simple as.

    There are more than a few, I've seen it throughout the Academy system, even at our's, it's cheating pure and simple, and it's not racist to simply state where the majority of these kids and their representatives come from.

    Do you mean Josh Harrop ?

    Made his United debut against Palace in the last PL game of the season during Mourinho's first season, scored a super goal. Had a contract offer (of some sort) from United but opted to join Preston on a 4 year deal when he was 21 and a half. Ok first season for them, 11 starts, 27 sub appearances, 2 goals, 1 assist, in Championship. Scored a couple of goals in a FA Cup game. Suffered a cruciate ligament injury in late September this season. I imagine he is expected back next season. 4 starts, 4 sub appearances, 1 assist in Championship this season before injury. He was 23 in December.

    His last U23 season for United he got 8 goals (including 3 pens) and 2 assists, scored a spectacular hatrick against Spurs in the last match. But worth noting that he would have been one of the older players in the division by that stage. 4 goals and 3 assists in his first two seasons at U23 level, though he did miss quite a few games. Never went out on loan.
