0-0 after 8 minutes, Garnacho just hit the post. On BT Sport 1.

Young boys unlucky not to go 1-0 up after some sloppy defending from Sam Murray.

23 minutes gone. Young Boys looking fairly good, quick in transition and very direct. United have done reasonably well until they've reached the opposition box where the final ball has been lacking.

Jurado down, looks like Ogunneye will be brought on after an epic battle trying to pull off his tracksuit bottoms.

keen to see Ogunneye, have heard good things about him and Mainoo who are both only 16.

Great chance to see some of the younger players with how hard it has been to watch the academy this year it's hard to tell how good they really are.

McNeill with an absolutely exquisite pass to Garnacho to make it 1-0 United.

Perfect pass from McNeil there, nice finish to boot from Garnacho.

How's this Garnacho guy? I have a few mates telling me he has huge potential but they did the same with Petrucci and I'm inclined no to believe them.

McNeill's decided to morph into Fabregas.

I think he's quite good. Probably not a United-level player but a talented lad nonetheless; technically gifted, knows where the back of the net is, good with both feet. Could be moulded into any sort of attacker.

Watched a video of that Garnacho on YouTube the other night, looks frighteningly quick, decent prospect.

Don't get time to watch the youth like I used to, not sure how he's viewed by most and if he's thought of as a top prospect?

Interestingly, Mather's started this match despite being in United's senior squad for tonight's CL match against Young Boys. I guess he's unlikely to come on tonight if he's playing right now.

I went to make a cup of tea and I appear to have missed a goal as it's now 1-1 :lol:

Young Boys now employing a high-press which we're struggling to cope with at the moment.

Hoogewerf has been very very good. Still a player in there.

Both teams will probably feel a bit unlucky not to score. Honestly, we look a bit lucky to have not given away another penalty there.

United with a fantastic bit of play between Hoogewerf, Ennis and McNeill to make it 2-1, delightful chip.

EDIT: Now that I look again it was Hansen-Aaroen, not Ennis.

Wonderful finish by McNeill. Great play by Hoogewerf and Hansen.

Na, he is young - he can play both games ;)

McNeil got the swagger and arrogance and numbers to make it.

I however feel that his lack of raw strength or pace will make it very difficult to transition to a PL level. What do others think?
