Nice gesture of Mourinho to give player of the year award to McTominay, rest of the academy players will have a lot of hope going into next season, not quite the youth-killer everyone said he would be.

It’s not that Jose doesn’t play young players, it’s that he doesn’t trust them to get results when it matters.

Look at the team we’ve been using for the last few weeks when we need to win games. Youngest regular starter is Lukaku at 24. A lot of players in late 20s and early 30s.

Not sure what the point is? We’ve won the matches we have needed to bar Sevilla at home!

Pep nevertheless plays youngsters at City and they are thrashing everyone. LVG okayed then all and we were awful!

It was more of them saying he won't give them a chance rather than him not trusting them.

He gave McTominay a chance when we had Fellaini, Carrick and Herrera out injured. Since two of those three have returned from injury McTominay has had his minutes cut. Coincidence?

Or maybe shappy Herrera is just playing very well at the moment? Mctominay had some great games for us and also picked up an injury when he was with Scotland. He’s played more football than anyone expected and has been trusted in some big games, ahead of pogba too.

Caolan, he got his chance due to Mourinho being unhappy with Pogba and wanting to drop him to prove a point. At that time most of our other midfielders were injured so Mourinho had a choice of sticking with Pogba or playing a kid. He chose to play the kid.

Fair play to McTominay as he worked really hard to grab that chance with both hands and got an international call up on the back of some very good performances.

But in spite of those good performances, Pogba was given his place back. And Fellaini and Herrera recovered from their injuries and McTominay's chances disappeared.

Mourinho has stated on the record that if Fellaini leaves as well as Carrick retiring the club will have to sign two midfielders to replace them. That would give us Mastic, Pogba, Herrera and the two new players. That's five players ahead of McTominay in the pecking order, does that sound like a manager who is going to give the kid a chance. And not just any kid the one who stepped up and helped him out when he needed him. Even after that Mourinho isn't prepared to make space for the lad.

Don't he surprised to see McTominay leave on loan next season.

So a manager who hates youth players etc dropped our most expensive signing for mctominay but that was only to prove a point? Perhaps Mourinho rates him, but matic has a good season, pogba has been better in recent weeks which is why he’s in the team. Herrera has been excellent, and Scott was injured there recently.
I’m not saying he will be first choice, but the first stick that was used to beat Jose, has actually been quite untrue.

Caolan, Pogba got his place back before McTominay got injured. McTominay was dropped in place of Pogba having played well, when there was no reason to drop him.

Josh McEachran was given games by Jose at Chelsea during an injury crisis. Yet Jose never made space for him.

This is the same Jose whonif everyone was fit would have Lukaku as his only first choice player under 25.

The guy who prefers a 34 year old winger over a 22 year old left back.

The guy who plays a 28 year old Smalling over a 23 year old Lindelof.

The guy who won't make space in the first team for Martial and Rashford two of the best young forwards in world football.

The guy who loaned out TFM and Tuanzebe and would rather keep Darmian as cover than give the young lads a chance.

Let's see how many of these young players get a chance next season shall we.
