Not afraid to use his pace & strength
Yeah makes you wonder why we stick with Ole for so long, he literally shat his pants and barely introduced any youngster because every game was a survival game basically. Now with Rangnick who seem to be less prone to favouritisim, except for Ronaldo slightly, Think he will introduce more youngsters who are hungry enough. Who cares about Martial, he will paly in Turkey in few seasons, Dan James will be benched for Leeds, who might drop to championship and you wonder why we palyed all these player and gave them so many chances while not realizing they are not good enough?its a bit crazy we kept giving Dan James so many chances with a guy like this waiting to step up
even more so giving Mata any minutes
I know he's not the finished article but he belongs at this level
I really want to see Hannibal thrown into the mix. Just imagine Hannibal, Elanga, Greenwood. They will have great chemistry!really pleased for him.
tricky first half, but didn’t let it discourage him.
great movement for his goal and took it really calmly.
that burst of speed into the box between 2 defenders was really exciting to see. haven’t seen that since a young martial!
Dya know… Based on the tiny bit I saw during pre season I’d love to see Pellistri given a few games on the right. He’s really direct and hardworking and I think he’s probably more creative than he’s shown on loan. if he gets the managers confidence here next season he could be anything. It’s all about taking your chances hereClever run for his goal. Saw that Ronaldo had dragged the CB away and created space for him to run into, took the opportunity. Good to see his pre season being rewarded finally.
And that’s fine. Not all youth players will become club legends but they provide important competition to more established players. There’s no substitute for that injection of youth and willingness to do whatever the manager wants.Give it two seasons and you’ll be talking about how overrated he is too, don’t worry.
can’t see any reason to drop him as long as he is performing well. He seems to be one of the most emotionally involved players. You could see what scoring meant to him. I like this kind of players vs the indifferent body language of the likes of martial for instanceNeeds to start every game
I liked that run too, we haven't had a striker do that since Ibra. He is deserving of his place in the 11 until the more established players start doing well consistently, with him you are assured of hardwork every minute he is on the pitch. He will be key for Rangnick and the new manager.Took his goal well. That first touch was incredible. We need more off the ball movement like that. Our players like to show for the ball too much rather than look for runs behind. More of that please...
He had a poor first half, no being lying and pretending it was great.I found it absolutely fecking incredible there were people having a go at him before the goal. A 19 year old making only his 2nd meaningful appearance in a tough away game where the rest of the team were struggling to create anything. I don't understand how some people live in the real world with their lack of common sense
Mejbri definitely needs to be given a chance. As we've seen the youthful energy and desire to break into the team could have a great shake up effect.I really want to see Hannibal thrown into the mix. Just imagine Hannibal, Elanga, Greenwood. They will have great chemistry!
No what's important is realising he's a 19 year old kid that's barely played in the first team and expectations should be set accordingly before we destroy him with pressure and criticism.He had a poor first half, no being lying and pretending it was great.
He turned it around though and made a great goal, that's what's important.
he isn't going to read it dont worry.No what's important is realising he's a 19 year old kid that's barely played in the first team and expectations should be set accordingly before we destroy him with pressure and criticism.
100% Agreed. That first year or so where a youth player plays with total freedom and fearlessness is an unparalleled boost to a side.And that’s fine. Not all youth players will become club legends but they provide important competition to more established players. There’s no substitute for that injection of youth and willingness to do whatever the manager wants.
If we can get a Rashford, Greenwood, or Elanga every couple of years and they contribute meaningfully then it is worth giving them opportunities.
