It was a very young team, and I chose to look on the bright side this time. Couple of moves were decent, and a lot better retention of possession this time round. Yes, it was probably a side that would probably be League One or Two material, but the boys did decently I felt. I remember how our youths struggled against physical League Two sides in past cup games... I know how apprehensive I felt when entering NS at 19, so for them to play in OT at 16/17 must be quite daunting.

Tahith has quick feet but is too scrawny. Even skinnier than CristianoR was when he first joined, so he'll need to get more body strength first. AngelG seemed to be quite deft and confident of himself. Will see if he can keep it going.

MarcusR threaded some really good balls a couple of times, but DiogoD lacks the acceleration and crossing to deliver good balls in. This is the only area he can work on to give himself a chance at being the 2nd choice right back, because I can't see him beating AaronWB at defending.

FC Astana didn't attack much, and when they did, they didn't seem to have very good execution to trouble our defence. So no conclusions as to the quality of AxelT as a centre-back.

But one thing seems certain, and that is MasonG seems to have the potential to make it at United. We can only hope he doesn't turn out to be a FedericoM.

“2017-18 season, [Spurs] achieved record revenues of £380.7m and pre-tax profit of £138.9m — the largest annual profit ever recorded by a football club. This summer its net transfer fee spending was about £120m ...among the highest in the Premier League. “ https://t.co/F4sOQgx0Z6

No, just that there is a difference in expectations between the first team and the youth team. And really, the way the team played that day was quite awful.

he is fast becoming Danny Welbeck MkII

I think his problem is hanging out and partying with Lingard too much.
近朱者赤, become unfocused and complacent
Not being a nazi but 近朱者赤 refers to being good when you go along with good company.is the 近墨者黑(2nd half) which means being bad when you hang out with bad company.

The young players will need to play together in the team for at least 2 yrs before they can gain the experience to compete with the current top teams in the EPL. The only big question is whether the manager is able to remain for 2 yrs.
This batch of young players like Rashy, can forget it. Already 4th season of playing regular football. 3 season add up barely 20goals, get good contract, what there to work for really.

This club is all about generating click for social media, marketing. Paying lip service, nothing to show to the fans week in week out. The fans wont turn against Ole. Last season at this point people want Mou head.

E.g. Quote "We are working every single day in training with Marcus. He wants to improve and be better." This is so common at United. Talk and talk and more talk. Will Rashy score more penalties this coming Sunday lol. Or Ref will send WHU player off.

thanks for the correction lesson taken

anyway, hope they can ship Lingard on next summer,
Sir Alex would have gotten rid of him in the blink of an eye for his off-field antics and pathetic on-field performances

the new managers were all struggling for results, success and to meet expectation. so its not easy for them to chop players off. especially Lingard, who can still make a lot of social media traffic for the club(makes Ed happy)

Incidentally, both MR10 and AM9 has had 116 appearance for United in the League and clocked 30 and 36 goals respectively.

Both highest tally in the league per season is 10 for Marcus and 11 for Martial.

Esp. MR10, burst in the scene with such flair and excitement but now still can only coin him as "potential". Just hoping he won't be like Lingard, 27/28 yrs old still "potential"

ship lingard? more likely he's getting a new contract.

but he still young (27 only) and got potential so can give chance.

"Golden Boy" Ando retired at 31...
This 2 got sometime...

For Rashford, we all know he is more dangerous when coming out left... James is equally effective for us at the moment there... I hope Gomes n Garner gets fast tracked into the team.

In Chongs place, we already got James n Rashford...

Martial
Rashford Gomes Greenwood
Garner McTominay
Shaw Lindelof McGuire AWB
