    Yeah, central midfielders playing deeper and without great physical attributes certainly peak amongst the latest outfield positions. Maybe a champo full season play every game loan next year at 19 and he can play for us at 20? Rodri, for instance, played a full season in the equivalent of League 1/2 (3rd division but they have 4 of them on equal status) at 19.

    Does anyone think Garner's potential came into the United think tanks thinking whilst looking at signings?

    Why spend £50-80m on Rice and or Longstaff when we have a talented youngster coming through? We look like we are not going down the route of "quick fix" and building a squad for the future.

    I really hope we can see 10-12 games in the first team, even if it is the Europa.

    If he lives up to expectation, and this team stays together what a reputation for Manutd this could be.

    Henderson

    AWB
    Lindelof
    Maguire
    Shaw

    Garner
    Pogba

    James
    Gomes
    Rashford

    Martial / Greenwood

    If we can add a bit of quality - Sancho

    I think had Eriksen wanted to sign we’d have gone for him (proven PL and likely reasonably priced given his contract situation) but I also think the powers are wanting to see more from the likes of Fred who they shelled out £50m on, and haven’t seen any return.

    Really nice player but U23 football won't tell us anything about whether he can make the transition to the men's game.

    I was reading today that Ole is planning on giving his development advantage over the likes of Fred and Matic. It was from MEN and I know it's hard to believe, but I would love that. If we can give him regular minutes in the Europa I think the boy can surprise us.

    He's got something about him this lad, our youngsters are getting me really excited for the future.

    After watching him a bit more, he seems ready for the Premier League. Too good for u23 or reserves now. Has crossed the Rubicon.

    He's gonna be bald though.

    Garner is exceptional and I reckon the only reason he isn’t playing is his physique is a bit scrawny he needs time to grow into a man’s physique. No need to rush him so he will get games here and there in the cups while waiting for him to mature physically.

    I agree and thought the same thing. No need for Rice and co when this lad is almost ready.

    He looks like another scholar the way he runs the game for under 23’s.

    He looks a very good player in the making but is realistically 2-3 years away from being a first team regular. He’s 18. He’ll be doing very well if he can be starting for us when he is 20-22 in CDM.

    I would like him to get as much playing time as Skipp got last season for Spurs.

    The more and more I look at him, he seems exceptional. His passing range is excellent. He receives the ball under pressure and brings it out well. He has a solid shot on him. His decision making is good. He could be starter for us in a few years if he can keep progressing.

    if he's ready for regular premier league football in two years time that would be amazing, and he'd be ahead of the curve as central midfielders go

    he does not look almost ready to me at all, he just looks great for his age

    We need him to develop, should be Matic’s last season at the club, probably Pogba’s which only leaves Fred and Mctominay. We’ll need 3 new midfielders next summer and hopefully Garner is one of them.

    Why doesn't he look ready to you? What faults in his game can you see?

    doesn't look physically developed enough which is normal for a kid of his age and position

    Garner and Chong stick out from the pack and should get more game time for the first team.

    Yes, and we will only know how good they will be with game time.

    It doesn't say that, but I was being generous to the original poster.

    Bit disappointing that this lad couldn't get a little cameo.
