My list is Ravel, Pogba, Januzaj, Gomes, Greenwood

Will probably end up including Mejbri as I'm very impressed with his technical ability and composure.

Hannibal is similar to Modric and Frenkie. Yeah they can play #10 and deeper. I would like us to try him out in a Modric role and groom him with that in mind.
Thanx.

As soon as Michael Carrick sat in the back line of our midfield, in August 2006, we went on the club's greatest ever run in our entire 140-year history.

Five league titles over the next seven years, we won - and in one other season we were beaten to it with the last kick of the campaign. In that time we got to three European Cup finals, too.

Michael Carrick is the most underrated player to play for our club, even though he is highly rated. We won more with Carrick as our control room in midfield than we did with Keane.
Ah sorry....I thought we bought Evra and Vidic, two truely world class players, in the January of 06, VDS in summer of 05 a world class GK, and that Ronaldo completely transformed from potential to one of the best in the world in 06 again world class.

Sorry I didn’t realise that these factors had no impact....it was all down to the signing of Carrick. Who actually was better than Keane, Robson, Charlton, Best and Law.

Seriously these people honestly just look at the timeline and think because Carrick came in that summer he was the reason. He had the least impact of any of those factors. He was a good player nothing more, good timing on his part but was as bad as anyone after SAF, Giggs and Scholes retired.

Comparing him with Keane. Have a word with yourself.

Rossi surely as well.
I liked Rossi he totally hit the ground running when we signed him in 2004. That 2004-05 reserve team he played in (alongside the likes of Ebanks-Blake, Eagles, Fox, David Jones, Pique, with Shawcross and Heaton in the squad) was a very entertaining team to watch.

He scored loads and performed well. I just thought he lacked a natural athleticism and power to go with his ability.. His ceiling just didn’t seem high enough for me. If you gonna be quite small you have to be special. Rossi was talented but not exceptional imo. And you had to be exceptional if you wanted to break into that forward line of Rooney, Van Nistelrooy and Saha...

How about Januzaj? Didn’t Butt recently said he considered Januzaj as best young talent from the club, ever since Giggs? Surely he was highly rated back then from our youth?
Top talent. Technically good. For me he just lacked that extra yard of pace/explosiveness for a wide player. That was just my opinion at the time.

I loved Rossi he was a real stand out at the time, some of the goals he scored were ridiculous. I think you’re right on the athleticism side. If he’d had that he’d have been world class imo.

According to this Tunisian sports columnist, Hannibal will be in the Man Utd squad for Thursdays game against Real Sociedad according to information he has received.

Hannibal would have to be added to the B list to play?
He would have to, so highly unlikely.

I thought he couldn't be added to the b-list, because he isn't at the club long enough?
Apparently he has to be here 2 years, whether that just means 2 seasons instead? it was August 2019 he came.

Sorry if it's been asked before but anyone know why he was not named in the Europa squad? Is it because we have too many older squad players and he does not qualify as a young/homegrown player?

I'm not sure, but it seems he only gets in via the B list which it seems he isn't eligible for due to not being in the country for 2 years.

I think Hannibal is still injured. He hurt his shoulder against Arsenal u23s.

So he definitely isn’t allowed to play on Thursday?
If you read the rules carefully, the A list had to be submitted by midnight on Feb 3rd. Clubs can register a maximum of 3 new players (we chose to add Nathan Bishop, Amad and Phil Jones). https://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsl...-to-know-champions-league-group-stage-squads/

He isn't eligible for the B list for the reasons already outlined. He doesn't meet the 2 year criteria.

This is the A + B lists squad https://www.uefa.com/uefaeuropaleague/clubs/52682--man-united/squad/

That's a shame - Europa looks like the most likely opportunity to kids to get minutes this season

I'm reluctant to use the word "definitely" about anything.

I think we had the opportunity to include him in our revised A List but instead chose to include Amad, Phil Jones and Nathan Bishop as our 3 permitted changes. Since the Feb 3rd deadline has now past.........................

Shame but we might see Phil Jones though
