United 1-0 up, Greenwood has also missed a penalty I believe.

2-1 United, United went 2-0 and then Stoke pulled one back.

Any idea who scored ? And if Greenwood missed another penalty - he should take the hint and leave them to someone else :)

3-1 now, Charlie McCann scored 2 and I think the other was an own goal

No idea why we have turned Puigmal from an exciting midfielder to a RB.
JB mentioned against Liverpool that he’s played there for Espanyol, we do have some very good midfielders ahead of him in the 18s.

Hasn't shown much resembling an exciting midfielder. He's been easily outshone during his time here. If he wasn't signed from Spain no one would know his name or care.
Not sure that’s a fair interpretation tbh. I think he showed plenty of glimpses of his ability last season, however, due to so much disruption caused by international football he didn’t get to play much. He always seemed to be away on international duty (where he looked very impressive) and was on the bench due to just coming back.

‘Easily outshone’ is a stretch I think.

Almost unfair to play this team in the U18s league tbh. Good talents all accross the pitch and the likes of Greenwood and Laird have outgrown this level.

Laird playing as CB, so we don't have RB in the team and Puigmal is taking one for the team and will benefit from learning to play in that position. I can't see a problem.
