That would be incredibly aggressive and I don't see that happening at all. There's lots of players who are ahead of him and giving him minutes doesn't seem realistic. Ahead of him are Greenwood (guarantee), Gomes, Garner, Chong, Levitt, Laird, and Williams. Reason I bring up these players is that there is an understanding that you're not going to play all the youngsters at the same time and thus need to be mix and matched in with lots of seniors.I think he'll get some minutes in the EL, especially games toward the back end of the group stage when the EL game is sandwiched between important league games.
Are you sure we can fit him in? As it is, Gomes, Greenwood, Chong, and Garner are ahead of him. Then you have Williams, Laird (if healthy), and Levitt ahead of him. Possibly Dalot just returning. Think it could be overkill to have any more young players.He or Bughail-Mellor should be on the bench against Rochdale in 10 days.
He was good overall but also skied some big chances. A lot of work to do yet but yeah he has the talent to be a player in a few years.He was outstanding last night. Such an impressive dribbler and has a great attitude for the game. Think he could surprise a few over the next 2 years. Especially as he thrives in a role nobody else at the club does, if the right injury crises breaks for him at some point the rest could be history.
Well it's Rochdale so i wouldn't risk important attacking players (Pogba, Rashford, Martial and James).Are you sure we can fit him in? As it is, Gomes, Greenwood, Chong, and Garner are ahead of him. Then you have Williams, Laird (if healthy), and Levitt ahead of him. Possibly Dalot just returning. Think it could be overkill to have any more young players.
There are youth players like him on every age group, people seem to forget that we're a big academy. U18s for example have Stanley who's almost in the same situation as Largie last year (good little technical player came from a smaller club without hype) or Haygarth who were the star of his age group but missed 2-3 years of development due to injuries, or Sotona, whilst people hyping up the first year U18s came from abroad and the U16s duo Shoretire and Forson. U23s have like 5 CMs who might become good players. As long as we don't mess up with the U23s level coaching like we did in the last few years and have better loans for some of them, couple of those "second tier" talents might make it, and we have some of them in every age group in the academy. Not everyone is a Greenwood or Gomes but good development, exposure to senior football and timing might grow them up to the level required for a Manchester United first team player.This kids come from nowhere. I don't follow youth football as much these days but seen his name on team sheets but nobody ever talked about him. Seen bits of our games this year and he looks decent.
Sometimes these young players just go up levels when nobody expected it and turn out to be good players. He might be one of them.
