There is one massive difference between Rashford and virtually everyone else being mentioned in this thread. Rashford was brought into a senior eleven and was played regularly during good/bad times. As a consequence he was able to ride through periods when things didn't work and continue his development in a relatively solid side. Virtually everyone else has had to try and impress in limited cameos or has been part of a team that is full of wholesale changes...this helps no-one. Every United junior is taught to play the United way...if we give then time then they can become stars in their own right or solid squad members. Just because they don't make it elsewhere after leaving doesn't necessarily mean they couldn't make it here. Often players struggle with route one football or different styles that are totally foreign to them. For every Scholes we need a Lingard...for every Beckham we need a Fletcher...for every Neville we need an O'Shea. They save us millions in the transfer market and are incredibly loyal. There are so many players we have bought like Obertan, Diouf, Smith, Miller, Djemba, Kleberson, Tosic, Bellion, Carroll, Kuszczak, Greening, Fellaini, Schneiderlin etc etc that...if we had given a few kids extended runs...could have developed into better versions of this lot. Josh King could have done a job for us...Ryan Shawcross could have done a job for us...Danny Drinkwater could have done a job for us...Michael Keane, Tom Heaton, Danny Simpson etc The modern pressures make it very difficult to integrate youth players into first teams and the gap between the youth and first teams is enormous. The reserve league is a complete waste of time and 95% of loans don't work...so the fact that we have a great record is a testament to the club and coaching staff overall.
