Similar to Amad last season then who missed a Feyenoord(?) loan due to injury right at the end of the window — won’t get a loan in the summer but will probably go out in January.

Looking at his style of play, I wonder if we can convert him into a RB. He is good at carrying the ball / decent pace and puts in the work defensively.

Bump.

Seems to be the forgotten man atm. Is it still possible for him to go on loan somewhere? Not sure about the loan window deadlines across the divisions. Behind Elanga and Garnacho for a spot on the bench/I'm the squad so very limited opportunities if he stays. A loan out to increase his market value/last throw of the dice to see if he can step up would make sense surely.

Think he's still injured. ETH said he wasn't due back till at least September when asked a month ago.

Wouldn't be surprised if we see him appear for the first team a bit over the course of the season. Thought he impressed during pre-season.

He is one I hope to see make a few professional appearances for us, hopefully he gets some in the Europa.

I've no idea what Ole thought about him (nor do I care, frankly) but every other manager he played for swears by him in terms of attitude and tactical application. I think both our context/challenges and ETHs preferences are consistent with that being a significant asset.

Dubious article. Claims he wasn't able to secure a loan move but totally excludes that fact he was injured on tour. Gus Poyet is a feckwit, too.
I forgot he was injured. Terrible article for not even mentioning it.

I really hope he makes Qatar. Would be great experience. I think he's better than Elanga.

I think the Uruguay manager likes him, so he should be a part of things. Hopefully he can resume training soon and maybe get a couple of games for us, too.

I don't think his place in the Qatar is at risk unless he has fitness issues.
He was given a chance and impressed in the qualifications despite barely playing minutes at the time. I remember everyone around here was pretty surprised and then full of praise after the his firsts caps.

Yeah from what I've seen he plays every game for Uruguay when fit. Doubt his place in Qatar is at risk but do agree that he'll probably struggle for playtime at United when fit.

Personally think he should be given a chance over Elanga when he's available. He's an established Uruguayan international for a reason.

But doesn't Pellistri primarily play on the right? and Elanga on the left? never seen him play on the left. So he would be competing with Sancho and now Antony?

Yeah he plays on the right and that's his main position but he's right footed. Can't see any issues with him also playing on the left.

He isn't a cut in and shoot merchant. Right winger, will go to the World Cup and play as one. No place for him at United or Alavés for... errr... reasons.

Some nice praise from Araujo
“I think Facundo Pellistri is surprising. Obviously we know the quality that Fede Valverde, Bentancur, Darwin have… we all know the quality they have. But Facundo Pellestri surprised me quite a bit."

“Especially since he hadn’t been playing. And more because of the level that he gave in the national team, that he was spectacular. Besides, we understood each other very well on the right wing. Facundo was the one who surprised me the most, yes."

Had a stinker.
Only recently came back from injury after last playing in pre season. He had no business starting. Maybe their trying to get him fit for November as he won't get much game time in red.

Apologies for my brief and unhelpful comment! I didn't see the game I just saw the ratings. Being the worst player on the pitch in the first half by some way usually means something is way off.
Jesus relying on ratings? Didnt see him play..... you are having a stinker!

We've lost the "surprise factor" as before rivals didn't expect him to play and/or didn't know what they were up against. Now they do and someone like Queiroz, with a boring low block side, is going to study him and set things up to deal with him effectively.

Getting doubled up on when coming off an injury and with little if any football, you are bound to struggle, and he did.

In any case, we lost because for some bizarre reason we started Suarez and Nuñez while benching de Arrascaeta and de la Cruz. I'd start Suárez with either of those two in a game like this.

Edit: losing the creativity and build up from those two made it easier to just worry about Pellistri.

Thanks for the review.

Hard to see how he gets game time without majorly impressing if he gets a cameo here and there. And that's a big IF.

We are stacked with wide forwards - even our central forwards this year in Rashford and Martial are better wide. Big inbalance across our front three.

Pellistri has Antony, Elanga, Rashford, Sancho and Garnacho ahead of him across RW and LW. Diallo's took the loan option wisely. Too much heat across the wide forward role and barely anything central.

He could be great for us but it's very hard to see how he gets regular game time bar some major injuries to a lot of players

Given the number of games over the next month he may actually get his chance in a few of the Europa league games.

Don't think there is much chance of seeing him today but nice to see him on the bench.
