    Hard to believe that they payed around £15m for Lukaku.

    Is Lukaku returning from injury, or he plays for their reserves in general?

    Not sure, but under AVB he was a reserve and there were rumours that he was going to be loaned out.

    Good performance so far. Playing some lovely football at times.

    Petrucci has been magic.

    This is almost embarrassing for them. So one sided.

    It's gas the way he's suddenly been reinvented as a striker.

    I'm not really convinced yet, need to see him play at goal first.

    has anyone seen much of this Lukaku? I remember people saying how he was one of the best young strikers in the world but is he any better than someone like Will Keane since they both similar age? (I do rate Will Keane very highly to be fair thats why I'd like a comparison)

    Well Lukaku's first team experience probably pushes him in the lead, but it's tough to say, I'd expect Lukaku in the Premier League on loan next season and Will in the Championship.

    Thats fair enough I certainly wouldn't expect keane to be in the PL next season, from what I heard about this Lukaku lad with the way people was talking about him and the fee Chelsea paid I expected to a bit of him at Chelsea this season but was wondering if it had just turned out to be all hype.

    think there is quite a few really good prospects in this United side, obviously not all of them can make it here but a few in with a decent shout and ready for a step up next season in terms of a loan, Certainly Petrucci, W.Keane and Tunnicliffe need to be in the Championship next season and maybe Ben Amos aswell.

    Ft 4-1

    Dropped off second half but good performances all round still. Petrucci and Wil Keane were both excellent, as was the whole defense.

    Could of been 6 or 7 from us quite easily.

    Lukaka cost £15million but wouldn't even get in our reserve team on that showing. You cant help but get the impression he only stands out for his age because of his build, talent wise he is nothing special at all. He's only 18 though so plenty of time to improve but its encouraging to know we have developed local talents even better than him.

    That's the spirit. I'm trying to tell myself that we actually beat Everton 4-2.

    I'll take 4-3 today if we can have 4-2 yesterday. I don't suppose it's possible though.

    I have a question, if you are a fringe player like Pogba and you don't get selected for the reserves, do you take it as a positive thing or negative? I would have loved to have seen Owen get a run in this game. ... We might need him in the 94th minute

    Pogba probably would've featured if he was fit.

    Lukaku costs more than every other player in these two squads?

    When you look at it Bamford (Chelsea's goalscorer) costs as much as our whole team, and Piazon (who is a big talent) costs more than twice as much. Lukaka cost 15 times as much. The only four players in our squad that cost anything were Petrucci (300k compo roughly), De laet (500k) and Fornasier and Vermijl (about 100k compo each). All the other lads are local and have come right through the clubs academy. Pogba would have added another few hundred k had he been fit.

    It just goes to show that throwing money at it like Chelsea and City are doing isn't always the way to success in youth football. Our lads have been playing together for 8/9/10 years now and it shows.

    It does depend on the definition of success. At Academy and Reserve level the team is less important - it's all boils down to finding a few individuals (if lucky) who might progress to the first team. I'd trade all the reserve and youth trophies for a guarantee of producing one first teamer every year.

    That's not to say that City and Chelsea are more successful in that respect either. In fact they've been conspicuously unsuccessful. Just making the point that success at lower levels does us no good unless we can unearth those few key stars.
