Gomes - because of his physicality, will have a slower introduction IMO but can become quality player and a starting 11 player for a truly big team that can compete for trophies. Hopefully we keep him long term, ability and technique not the question with him.
Greenwood - Potential world class striker IMO. Van Persie-esque in so many things he does. As always with any young player making the jump, question will always be mentality and fitness, but I'm confident he'll be a starter before the end of the season.
Chong - Don't think he'll stay here long term. Go out on a few loans like Fosu Mensah before settling at a lower/mid table club. More pace than talent.
Garner - haven't seen enough of him, but he hasn't ever particularly stood out when I have, but it's also much more difficult to stand out as a young midfielder like that. It's also a much slower development process with those types. Would say if he does become a United player eventually, he's a few years away from any serious role.
Is Greenwood really that good ? To say he looks world class you must be judging that on reserve team football and that’s a massive call to make. I don’t know enough about him but he must be ripping that level to bits to be identified as ‘potential world class’ at this stage.
What’s he so good at that makes him stand out ?
