I know it's only pre-season, but when you see young academy lads like Chong and Greenwood combining, McTominay pinging passes around like a young Michael Carrick, or Gomez in the last game, I feel so much more pride in my team, than watching a bunch of over-paid, and often over-hyped mercenaries strutting around like the club owes them something. I just hope that people are patient with our kids, and don't start on them when the inevitable dip in form happens. They're cheering the heart of an aul cynic, just now.

100% agree. The best United teams have always had a solid core of young players.

20 Jul 2019 14:28:36
It’s been a joy to watch at times today Stevie. I’m actually buzzing for the season to start. Screw all the doom and gloom I think we will surprise a few.

20 Jul 2019 14:29:55

• Scott McTominay [22]

• Mason Greenwood [17]
• Axel Tuanzebe [21]

I'm not one to get carried away but Mason Greenwood wow! What a prospect!

20 Jul 2019 14:33:57
Yeah Noucamp.
Chong with some classic wing play.

20 Jul 2019 14:34:20
Greenwood has all the attributes to be a star, i think he is going to be our next start, he should teach Rashy how to put the ball in the net lol.

20 Jul 2019 14:39:14
Greenwood is stating a case that he is ready and I’m not sure that’s wrong, I would be delighted if he steps up, he was amazing last year for the kids, he’s some talent.

For the first time in a long time I actually like some of our players and like the style of play, very exciting.

20 Jul 2019 14:48:35
That goal from Mason was reminiscent of RvP. The bit of skill to get past Skriniar was amazing too, what a talent. No fear in these lads.

20 Jul 2019 14:59:40
Greenwood is special and i think he has more talent then Rashford.

20 Jul 2019 15:12:03
So many people have been calling for us to sign Skriniar, but some 17 year old lad with only one start in the first team just had him on toast.

So is Skriniar overrated, or do we have a special talent in Greenwood?

20 Jul 2019 15:18:30
Shappy it is pre season lol, no need to go to such extremes when judging players especially in games where the main priority is fitness.

Greenwood has done what everyone expected him to, make a firm case to included in our first team squad next season. He is too good to play under 23 football and probably too useful to loan out to another team so he will have plenty of opportunities next season.

Greenwood is a special talent.
Someone mentioned he is like RVP.
I think he seems to have an even better ceiling than him.
He seems electric, and seems like one of the those to whom the balls always falls to.
If he doesn't get injured and keeps getting playtime, there is no reason he won't score 20 goals next season.
He scored a wonderful goal today, he hit the woodwork with an almost RVP like finish.
He made a tap in finish the previous game.
And he was electric against Cardiff too and could have had a hat trick.

I'm so excited to see Gomes, Chong who seems better on the left, Tuanzebe, Greenwood, McTominay and Pereira do really well next season.

Ole seems to love the quick 1-2 passes players to break open defense and a lot of players are responding really well.

I think our squad isn't too shabby now if we sign Harry Maguire or a centre half who is really good in the air.
And possible replacement for Pogba if he leaves.
I don't think Lukaku needs replacing.

20 Jul 2019 16:15:09
Rooney was special from that age only. No wonder Greenwood will turn out to be the same as him.
England and Manchester needs one of that kind. Young, and special.

20 Jul 2019 16:29:54
The only problem I saw with the young lads is apart from greenwood they all look more comfortable playing on the left side of the front 3,chong especially.

20 Jul 2019 16:36:46
Greenwood's going to be good. Only preseason, but with you guys being in Europa this season it's a fantastic way to get him integrated in the first team.

Indeed he looks a better talent than Rashford, and contrary to Rash he looks like a real striker. I don't think he's suited to the wing positions as his dribbling probably isn't up to that level yet (his technique seems good though) .
Finishing is crisp and his movement is smart and lively, similar to our Tammy. Greenwood's technique is better than Tammy, and that's the difference between them. He can get involved more in play that way.

The big PL clubs combining to produce England's future forward line.
Callum - Greenwood - Sancho looks tasty, with a top Liverpool prospect as well in Rhian Brewster :)

Can't wait till our match in a couple of weeks. You're lucky we'll be missing Ruben and Callum! :p.

20 Jul 2019 16:47:04
I hope we don't sign any forwards/ wingers should Lukaku leave.
Greenwood and to lesser extent James and Chong deserve games.
My concern is still CB.
Tuanzebe looks promising but him alongside Lindelof the defence looked weak when defending crosses - especially with DeGea stuck on the line.
As things are Smalling remains a must (as with their injury record, we cannot count on. Bailly and Jones)

20 Jul 2019 17:21:35
Mason Greenwood is the real deal.

20 Jul 2019 33:41:17
Greenwood has been a special talent all through the ranks. I posted on here about him a couple of years ago because he was so two footed he could take corners and penalties with either foot. He is at an age where it is the question whether he can step up and have the mental plus physical attributes needed. He seems to be down to earth and let’s see whether he can handle the mental side. I read he has physically grown this year so if still growing we need to be careful not to over play him.

Someone asked on here who we would buy for right side attack and maybe that is a player who won’t be bought to not block a path for Greenwood too much. However I think if Lukaku goes we will need a centre forward for the short term at least. Greenwood has real potential, it’s up to him now.
