I can't quite see what these other clubs are after in Chong. I don't think we'll miss him at all. Doesn't seem to have the makings of a top player at all. If he decides to move on, I wish him well.
God I remember being excited for him back in 2010 was it? He’s actually just gone on loan to Aldershot in the National League. What a fall.He reminds me a lot of Gyliano Van Velzen - got some skills, and decent technique, but he's just too tall and gangling to cut it at the top level.
Van Velzen incidentally has recently signed for Crawley Town having spent the last few years in mediocre Eredivisie sides. It wouldn't suprise me if Chong's career had a similar trajectory because he simply lacks the strength and presence to be a player at this level. He'll still do alright for himself, mind.
Chong could score a hat trick and you’d be here spouting bullshit about how he was this or that.Probably the most unimpressive youth attacker to get this few games for at least a decade. Don't get it at all. We lack pace and direct runners but he doesn't have enough all round to justify a place on the bench.
Contract expires in summer. He wont resign for us, only to be loaned out.I wouldn't sell,especially not yet as different players/individuals develop at a different rates.
I maintain there's a very good player in Chong,though, but I think a loan and consistent first team appearances would do him the world of good.
He’s a kid who has barely played 10 times for the first team. Not everyone is Mason Greenwood, yet Chong is one of our best talents. Branding him one of the most unimpressive young attackers I can’t take that seriously. We are a club that gave Jesse Lingard 200 or maybe you didn’t see him playing for the first team?Because I have some strange agenda against an irrelevant United youth player? What a strange position to take.
Since his shocking miss against Astana, he's been fine. AZ Alkmaar sub, Wolves FA Cup, Tranmere sub, Watford sub.In all honesty, he's hardly put a foot wrong in his last few outings.
