    Jesse Lingard?!

    Who would have known, the young whipper snapper himself was the oldest outfield player.

    We sure must have a young team! great sign for the future.

    Thankfully he wasn't an outfield player.

    And imagine how good Lingard will be in a few years when he's no longer a youngster!

    That can't be right surely? Aren't Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Pogba all 24+?

    Harry Maguire could wheel Lingard around in a buggy and I'd find it believable that he's his dad, yet somehow he's younger.

    It's quite mental. In the squad the players older than Lingard are: Jones, De Gea, Rojo, Darmian, Smalling, Sanchez, Matic, Mata, Romero, Young, Grant.

    Outside of De Gea, I don't think they're currently first team players (though Matic will likely get the most minutes out of this lot).

    Yep, I guess it's a good thing that our worst players are the older ones? Experience is over rated it seems.

    Only if that experience adds nothing.
    There are players in our squad under 30 who have a lot of experience under their bektsb

    Like Marcus Rashford who at the age of 21 has played 171 times for United. Or Harry Maguire who at the age of 26 has played a total of 334 matches for his clubs and a further 20 internationals.
