If he stays injury free he will be our all time top scorer. Calling it.
All he has in common with RvP is his cadence. Its nice to have a similarity and everything, but how different he is from RvP is absolutely exciting.He's a significantly better passer than RvP. His two-footedness obviously makes him much more unpredictable in the box. Probably a better dribbler too.
Quite a different player, imo.
Rooney never managed to finish as wonderfully as Greenwood is doing now. The quality of the strike is uniform across types of shots. Rooney only ever got that with his belters. Greenwood does it with the bottom corner ones. Rooney may have done it too sporadically, but this boy is doing that consistently at the start of his career!I feel like the RVP comparisons have been taken a bit far. Personally the power in some of his finishes reminds me of early Rooney, where he would hit the ball into the corners from around the edge of the box
I get you!He plays as if you cheated a player in fifa to get him 99 in finishing. What a player truly excited.
Such a disgusting talent
I've been watching football for over 30 years but I've never seen anyone hit a ball so pure as this kid does. This is me being rational and unbias. i'm genuinely trying to think of someone who would be able to strike a ball so consistently with either foot and hit the centre of the ball literally every time. He's one of those players you know can have an absolute stinker but if he gets a half chance he will always hammer it on target. Even if he was low on confidence and nothing was going right for him, it's like he would still be able to strike a ball perfectly regardless of his confidence level. He could go on to be a freak for many years.
I think he is better playing as a RF like he did today in a partnership. It's just a narrowed down version of RW which is how both him and Rashford should both be playing.What?
Better finisher than Van Persie? No chance. I think you have to rewatch his goals that season to remind yourself just how good Van Persie was.He's the best finisher at United since Ruud and Ole. Deadlier than RvP.
Are we talking about RvP that took more than 7 seasons to develop into a proper powerhouse? I wonder how good was he at 19, I think he was still at Feynoord at the time.Better finisher than Van Persie? No chance.

Greenwood is obviously very good, but this is taking it a step too far.
He had ridiculous injuries. If it wasn't for that RVP would have been much higher up in the goal scoring charts for ArsenalAre we talking about RvP that took more than 7 seasons to develop into a proper powerhouse? I wonder how good was he at 19, I think he was still at Feynoord at the time.
He's more natural than RVN, who only once finished from outside the box, he's more two footed and is a better dribbler. Ole was excellent in the air too.I think Greenwood is potentially the best finisher I've seen at Utd alongside Ruud and Ole. I can't remember ever having such confidence in a player going through or even getting half chances. He's got no right to score that goal yesterday btw, what an outrageously composed finish.
This. RvP could have been one of the best goal scorers of all time had he not has so many niggling injuries. Beautiful player.He had ridiculous injuries. If it wasn't for that RVP would have been much higher up in the goal scoring charts for Arsenal
At 19 he was coveted by all the major clubs. I know we were interested but he chose Arsenal to work with Wenger
