It’s great. Let’s hope we develop them well and give them a cohesive platform to push on from (unlike what we have now). At the same time, they all have to prove themselves in the long run.

United make me feel dirty. And not in a sexy way.

If we don't build the team around these three then we really don't deserve any success
Agree, and let's please not forget Amad. I think he is an exceptional talent that we haven't yet fully unleashed.

Right now it is a very nicely taken picture. Let’s just enjoy the ride and hope in 10 years time this turned Into something more meaningful. But I do love how these three gelled.

Now lets do our best not to give them £300k a week contracts in the next couple of years that no other club on the planet would come anywhere near matching.

Not that I think there's anything like the danger of these three going the same way as Sancho and Martial.

Not that they should be given 300k a week contracts. But any 300k a week contracts should be tied to performances. Not receiving them while you are in sick Bay most of the season or playing poorly or inconsistently through the season.

I think these players would like to give a shot at some titles with United first - Rasmus may even like to be here long term given he’s a fan.

If they/their agents want big contracts, I’d rather sell them on to other clubs. But part of that is to negotiate 3-4 year contracts on not more than 95K per week wages. Agents and as a result players, have a bit too much say these days and I hope this focus on FFP brings that down a notch. Not saying this trio are definitely like that, but they shouldn’t be pandered to if they become like that.

We should keep the youth mill rolling of course, if they want anything above 200k, we can just sell the asset and move on to the next big player.

Fully agree with you. We have been too quick to dish out huge pay rise too early in the past. The entire pay scale within the club is in chaos as a result. How sancho could command 350k a week, is just crazy.

I thought he was copying a Ronaldo celebration, he always does different Ronaldo celebrations
Maybe but Kudus playing for them after celebrating against us last month is a bit more relevant to yesterday’s game surely? It’s not as if that’s a famous Ronaldo celebration

Ah f**k it, let's get giddy.

These three appear like proper sound lads and there's every chance they could be the core of our team for well over a decade.

Already buzzing for the unveiling of the "Second Holy Trinity" statue in 2050.
