    It’s a massive step up for three quarters of our team of course they’ll struggle

    Levitt is an interesting talent on top of the ones you've mentioned

    Guess we are watching different games.

    Should be 1-0 minimum.

    Kicking lumps out of us because they can't cope.

    Gomes is on a different level! Love how he’s stamping his authority

    Abysmal ? We have had control of the game - we have created a few big chances and should be ahead.

    He is, but he hasn't been as involved as the ones I've mentioned.

    Overall, the players we're most hopeful of, have done well. That's all that matters.

    They're more than holding their own against seasoned pros.

    United have been the better side and looked exciting on the break and technically superior as you'd hope for potential United players of the future.

    Great test for the lads

    Weird one that corner. Most of the extra time was taken up with the ball out of play so should have had more time added, but also a bit daft to rely and the ref not wanting his half time brew.

    I've enjoyed it so far. You can see the difference tests they are facing playing against proper pros.

    Hoping Gomes can make the bench against Chelsea, doesn't look bothered at all by the niggly fouls he's having to deal with.

    Maybe he expects our Reserves to just walk over a side that was on Championship last season.

    Been a sloppy game from both sides really, definitely had the better chances though. Atmosphere is better than some first team aways last season.

    Bernard is the only one who has looked bad in this match. Ramazani is limited so it's expected that he kind of just serves as an attacking outlet. Laird has pretty much carried that right side's attack.

    We have some players who in terms of talents are 2 Levels above Rotherham - but they lack the experience and the physical side. Chongs 2 misses alone with the goalkeeper is probably down to the lack of experience and a bit of nerves.

    Chong isn't a good finisher. Wasted a lot of chances last season too.

    Very nice to see the kids brush off Rotherham's attempts to shithouse the game up so far.

    The football is very good - but we have to be honest enough to admit that Our finishing has been really poor

    Mellor really doesn’t seem to have any composure at all

    Chong and Mellor rubbish composure

    With Greenwood gone - who are the options?

    Will we promote Emeran or Hoogewerf next match? Both only 16, but Sure-fire is still 15!

    Put Laid up front instead of Mellor. Quality finish.

    How can you not be impressed by this performance.

    Williams Gomes and Laird fantastic.

    Levitt and Garner good.

    Ramizani has been okay too.

    Both CB's also decent.

    Literally turned on a minute before the goal went in. Lovely goal.

    Having a miserable day so that's made me smile.

    Ramazani - great goal after a long pass from Garner. Gets the ball out on the right - runs inside the box and cuts it back into the near corner
