The reason we want to see Greenwood involved getting chances and also the likes of Tuanzabe and Gomes and some even want Garner is due to the lack of recruitment yet again this summer.He is 17.
Goodness, does our fan base (and seemingly coach) put way too much pressure on youngsters. We should be introducing him like most other clubs do with their young players. Give him substitute appearance when we're a couple of goals up or start him in the cups. You don't introduce him in a match like this.
Personally not worried at all by the players we have failed to replace as they were all very average players, we should have been losing more players....but still doubts over Lindelof, still Lingard/Mata as our number 10s and still no proper right winger.
So having the same players yet again who have failed to impress and no options bought in to strengthen, the youngsters really are our best option and should be getting chances.
This is only one game so such a knee jerk reaction by fans. Greenwood and Gomes and Tuanzabe should all be getting opportunities from the bench week in week out in my opinion. The problem is there is huge pressure on them to be salvation this year in a very average side, unlike the youngsters of yesteryear coming into good sides with great players to learn from.
We should persevere with these youngsters, possibly wrongly because they are our only option due to another poor summer in the transfer market
