2-1 Pritchard freekick - poor goalkeeping from Carney. Should have kept that one out.

2-2 Bacuna. Sloppy defending from Devine on the left who leaves his side wide open - and Laird who doesn't get ahead of Bacuna for a simple tap-in

Latest I seen were City don’t want him to come to us so won’t negotiate a reasonable fee. So it’ll have to be dragged through a tribunal to sort it or he’ll just eventually go somewhere else so he can move on without all the bullshit.
Hopefully we can still sign him up, watching the u23s yesterday showed he'd likely get games for them as we're lacking an out an out striker.

He’s only a first year, so wouldn’t expect him to be thrown into the u23s, he’d be with the 18s. More likely Hoogewerf would move up. Or have Elanga move central and Deji would move up to play on the wing.

Also have Mejia and Emeran who are older and who knows how good they really are so if they’re fit they could be forced in too.

That's true

Is Fosu-Mensah still considered a reserves player or first team? Just curious what everybody's opinion/expectations of him for the upcoming season.

He's a first team player, not a reserves player. However, that distinction doesn't have to do with whether or not he's planned to have a big role or really any sort of role at United. Think Pereira.

Fosu Mensha is first team player, definitely. Will he stay with us for another 12 months, that is different question and probably depends on signings. If we sign LB, it is possible one of Dalot or Fosu will leave, but I guess Dalot is the first choice to leave.

Must have been scouted on YouTube!
He spent 3 months on trial & did well enough to be signed & he wasn't actually released by Chelsea he was offered a new deal but not on the terms the family wanted, presumably was only offered up to u16s rather than a guaranteed scholarship
