    Very happy for him. Good to hear he's showing a great attitude, certainly has some ability.

    Wrote about the players born in 1986. Also, an interview with Tommy Lee so a lot of questions about goalkeepers: https://manutdungdom.blogg.se/2019/april/unitedprodukterna-fodda-1986-vad-hande-sen.html

    Thanks. I'm not sure I follow what you mean? It's in Swedish and English. If you just scroll down you get the English version.

    Oh silly me! I saw the Swedish text first, so I allowed my Chrome browser to auto-translate the page into English. My bad.

    If that article is to be believed, should do quite easily. Very mature approach to his career. Must have tonnes of confidence as well.

    And here is the article about players born in 1987. Also interviews with Aaron Burns and Jami Pusstinen who talks about how Cristiano Ronaldo was unique in his training, Finnish football, regrets in their career and much more. Read it here: https://manutdungdom.blogg.se/2019/may/unitedprodukterna-fodda-1987-vad-hande-sen.html

    Cheers. Good interviews. Always interesting to hear from those academy lads that didn’t really make it.

    Thank you! I agree. Unfortunately, not many agree with us on that.

    No interview this time (talked a bit with Sam Hewson but he didn't seem to have the time to do an interview) well worth the read anyway I hope. Like, what do Kieran Lee do nowadays, the man who scored the winner in a League Cup-game? https://manutdungdom.blogg.se/2019/june/unitedprodukterna-fodda-1988-vad-hande-sen-2.html …

    Just noticed Evandro Brandão on the bench for Angola. Nice to see he's still knocking around at some level, thought he'd dropped out of the game years back

    What do people make of Chris Eagles's career trajectory ?

    He managed to make a few appearances for United then played for Watford, Sheffield Wednesday,Burnley, Bolton, Blackpool and Charlton, among other less known clubs. Quite a good career at championship level i'd say

    Wonder why he didn't really get more opportunities at United, given that players like Quinton Fortune, Djemba Djemba and David Bellion got quite alot of appearances.

    If he had been a couple of years older then he might have, unfortunately he was very slight when those players mentioned were getting their starts and when he started filling out a bit he was coming into a team that was becoming a major concern in Europe again, it was the smart decision to move him out.

    Getting shot of Rossi on the other hand …

    United was in a bit of a transition time between 2003 and 2006 right ? Can't remember about too many youngsters who made a full impact back then

    Not many were that highly touted to be fair. Pique, Rossi, Fletcher and O'Shea are obviously the stand outs along with Kieran Richardson to a lesser extent.

    The Eckersley's were about then, Phil Bardsley had a couple run outs, Johnny Spector did as well. Kieran Lee and Ritchie Jones saw cup games.

    The two talents that were hot shit on this site around that whole time were Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and David Jones, the latter had a very good loan in Holland but never really was ever going to make the grade, the same can be said of the former

    The groups that bothered the first team after them that had the likes of Danny Simpson, Frazier Campbell, Welbeck, Matty James et al always seemed to be a level or two above that 03-06 period.

    Rossi was very highly rated around the club from what I understand,a shame he wasn't given more games.

    Perhaps the one who had the biggest impact in recent years was Macheda, as that Villa goal was BIG for the title race, but for some reason he faded away after that

    I also remember the two brothers Rafael and Fabio, they went straight into the first team and seemed to have more of Ferguson's trust than others.
