I appreciate we have had different managers of late, with different attitudes towards young players - but I’m talking about the club as a whole, and specifically, our fans. This forum likes to have a dog at the likes of City or Chelsea for not promoting, or Real for buying stars, but it seems we, or at least, many of us, collectively don’t have the stomach for the ride of developing young talent either. Going through the caf this season, I’ve seen many posters very happy to sell the likes of Martial, Pogba and Shaw ‘if the right offer came in’ etc, at least after a poor performance by them. If we are talking of young and developing players, you really won’t get much better than that lot. Pereira is another many are happy to be sold very easily. I don’t blindly champion kids, and am far from McTominay’s biggest fan, for example, as I’m not sure I’m nice enough to agree with rewarding him for ‘being a good boy’. He isn’t talented enough IMO. But younger players who have clearly demonstrated the required level of talent on more than a few occasions, but simply haven’t put it all together yet, should surely get more patience. The thing is, posters would probably like to think we are a better destination than PSG for the likes of Mbappé, but many are no more patient with the last Mbappé who we signed ourselves, and due to a combination of our manager and our fans (at least from what I read) - I’m not sure the top young talents in the game would be making the wisest move by coming to United at the moment, which is something I’d never think I’d say.
