    So that's Shoretire, Emeran, and Hoogewerf in attack?

    Hopefully Hannibal too, if he plays as an AM. Think he is a CM though

    What’s in it for him? Except more money.
    Surely he has a better chance at making the Ajax first team than the United first team?

    Tbh, nothing new about it, we have been making these sorts of signings for a few years now. Yet to really hit the jackpot, although Pereira, Chong and TFM have been involved.

    Pogba should have been in that category. Pique and Rossi too.

    Aye, Cherki, Mejbri and now Hoogewerf. Not to mention we already have some very highly rated players in that group already, Forson and Shoretire are both meant to be quality too.

    Oh yeah of course.

    Anyone know if Sotana and Odubeko will be in this group or are they first year scholars now?

    Hmm, who knows. When we signed the likes of Chong, Traore, Puigmal, Burkhart - all around a similar time, we beat a lot of Europe’s elite to them. Just that they haven’t looked like that of late. Januzaj and Pereira similar before them, with TFM.

    Hopefully this new batch turn out better.

    Puigmal and Chong have both been training with the first team in recent weeks, wouldn't write them off just yet.

    Of course, not at all.

    Although not hopeful about Puigmal. Came as a promising midfielder and was quickly turned into a RB, in which he won’t make it.

    They'll all be first years in the upcoming season. Unless either Sotana or Odubeko have late in the year birthdays but I'm fairly sure they'll be first years next year as are all the players we're linked with. You can't sign u16s from abroad.

    Tbf loads of them have trained with the first team at some point, it doesn't really mean that much. As it stands Puigmal will be struggling to even get game time next season in the u23s.

    We also bought one more dutch forward, I think Baars was his name. He was also highly rated, any news on him. How is he developing?

    I believe Mejbri is trying to have his Monaco contract voided in court. If he succeeds, we should be good to go.

    We did this a lot under Fergie for a while too and to be fair it gave us a few very good talents to fall back on. Pogba, Pique, Rossi. Only reason the later two didn't make it here is because we already had such a good team at the time. Pique was fighting for a place with two of the best centrebacks in the world at the time. Rossi just had to be better than Rooney, VanNistelrooy, Ronaldo, etc. Bringing through players like that now would be a potential difference maker even if it was one or two.

    Even at the moment if you take our youth talent who've been involved with the first team out of the squad the situation looks more bleak.

    Hope he makes the first team eventually just so I can get Hoogewerf on the back of my shirt.

    Why be :drool: when there's good chances he won't make it now at all anyway? He's a really really short guy so I don't see him getting the chances at all as a forward in England. Being shoehorned as a winger won't do him any good at all in my opinion. I'm just pissed off because our golden golden generation that I've been looking forward to in 3/4 years has just been torn apart. The 2002 generation, basically U17 euro winning team from the other day from our U19s + Gravenberch (2002) and Hoogewerf(2003) was set to be an incredible moment for the club, with Unuvar(2003), Gravenberch(2002),Hoogewerf(2003), Rensch(2003) as literally world class talents, all the same age, coming through at the same time, surrounded by top tier talents in Taylor(2002) and potentially Hansen(2002). but the one I felt most had the most enigmatic excitement to him, a short, incredibly pacey, beautifully technically, perfectly two-footed dribbling ice-cold finisher with a bullet in either foot has decided to leave for the guaranteed money...:(
