(it's in Polish but Google translate worked perfectly)

 

Really good interviews about our U12's Lech Cup trip. Gave some insights about how our Academy works for the 9-12 years old kids. I didn't know that we're the youngest team in that tournament.

Seems there will be a scramble for Patrick Roberts this summer. All Major clubs want him.

 

Wonder if he will consider leaving Fulham.

 

Doubt he will leave before causing some storm with Fulham first team.

Somebody just made a short clip on Angel Gomes's cameo with our U17s at Slovakia.He's 13 years old.

 

Did I understand correctly - 13 years old and playing with our under 17s ? WOW, Presumably he's a midfielder ?

Yeah he's a CM/No.10.An U14s but born in 31 August 2000 - only 1 day before the age cut-off for U13s.We played 3 U14s from the bench on that match.

Thanks for the info. (y) Where's he from ?

On another note, we seem to be playing some players in teams above their age range and I wonder if this is because these kids are so good, part of a new philosophy or whether it's been brought about by a reduction in spending. Cheers.

Reduction in spending?Do you really think we don't have enough money to recruit 12-16 years old kid  :scratch:

 

Every team does that for their higher rated youngsters.In fact we might be one of the team who's more reserved in this regard.

 

Gomes's parents are Portuguese but live in England so Gomes has lived in England long enough to be eligible for the national team.

I was referring to all the levels.Some of the under 21s are out on loan and their places are filled with kids from the under 18s,whose places are filled with... Sometime last year the club said they were planning to do this. All levels have a budget so the knock-on effect could be there. It was only a question. :hidesbehindsofa:

I think the balance between promoting players and keeping the squad competitive enough this season has been just right (although Goss and Harrop are good enough for the U21s IMO and we should loan Thorpe,M.Keane,Petrucci... earlier).Last season and so on we kept so many player at U18s level who're clearly too good for that level due to all the places in the U21s are filled with older players, some of them are, again, too good for the U21s.

      Carrick set for Under-21 outing
       
      Manchester United have a first, and only, Barclays Under-21 Premier League assignment in October when travelling south to face West Ham United this evening (Friday).
       
      The match, which is being shown live on MUTV, presents Warren Joyce's third-placed side with an opportunity to regain top spot in the table above neighbours Manchester City. 
       
      Louis van Gaal has stressed he will use the Under-21 games to increase the fitness of some of his senior stars and has confirmed Michael Carrick will feature after being an unused substitute at West Brom. The midfielder will step up his comeback from an ankle operation against his former club’s second string.
       
      James Wilson could be an option to partner Will Keane in attack but United's Under-21 top scorer Adnan Januzaj had a full 90 minutes at The Hawthorns. Keane, of course, scored a hat-trick in the Lancashire Senior Cup win at Accrington Stanley recently and is looking to get off the mark in the division this term.
       
      James Weir promoted his claims with a goal in the behind-closed-doors friendly with Burnley last week but defender Paddy McNair looks set to miss out with a minor hamstring injury.
       
      The Hammers, who will host the match at their Rush Green training ground, are second from bottom in the table but defeated Sunderland 2-0 in their last outing.

      Loughborough 0 United Youth XI 2    
      A Manchester United Youth XI defeated Loughborough Students 2-0 with goals by Sean Goss and Ashley Fletcher.
       
      Paul McGuinness fielded an Under-19 line-up that included Goss, Fletcher and Matty Willock in addition to his Academy squad in a match played in memory of the home team's former coach Mike 'Doc' Holliday.
       
      The game was only eight minutes old when the hosts lost possession deep inside their own half and Marcus Rashford's intelligent backheel allowed Goss to fire a superb shot past Jack Howard and in off the far post. Rashford and Fletcher were convinced a penalty should have been awarded when they tried to reach a cross by Tyler Reid but Loughborough hit back and Dean Henderson was close to being embarrassed when his clearance struck Alun Webb and trickled wide.
       
      After Rashford almost danced through on his own, Devonte Redmond spurned a glorious chance when scooping over from close range. Joe Riley was also off target from a promising position while Rashford was unlucky with a diving header from a Riley centre that flashed wide.
       
      Willock started the second half brightly as the game opened up and, after firing wide, he curled a shot past Howard only to see it bounce back off the bar. United turned up the heat on a blustery night and, after Rashford was unable to finish off a devastating run by Riley, the no.9 capitalised on a mistake by Josh Dickens to release Fletcher and the target man finished clinically past the advancing Howard.
       
      The Students responded with an incisive move that should have led to a goal by the lively Webb, but he snatched at the opportunity, before Jack Poxton tested substitute goalkeeper George Dorrington. United assumed total control but could not add a third goal during a dominant spell that contained some attractive football.
       
      Fletcher was unable to profit from a poor Howard clearance, the keeper atoning by holding the venomous shot, Redmond drilled wide after slicing through the home defence and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson's mishit cross dropped the wrong side of the far post.
       
      At the other end, Poxon attempted a drive that deflected wide of a stranded Dorrington but came back off an upright while Fletcher was twice unable to convert decent openings as the chances continued to come thick and fast. Rashford spun Luke Trotman to race clear but supplied a disappointing finish from an ever-decreasing angle.
       
      Rashford latched onto a Riley through ball but was again unable to add a third goal as he fluffed his shot with the Reds unable to match the 6-2 goalfest of two years ago and yet were still good value for the victory, even allowing for the fact Ben Ward-Cochrane's last-minute effort was ruled out for offside. 
       
      United: Henderson (Dorrington 46); Reid, Tuanzebe, Williams, Borthwick-Jackson; Riley, Goss, Willock, Redmond; Rashford, Fletcher. Subs not used: Thompson, McTominay, Croskery.

      U18s: United 0 Sunderland 2
       
      Manchester United’s Under-18s slipped to defeat against a strong and well organised Sunderland team at the Aon Training Complex on Saturday.
       
      It was a cloudy, but pleasant and fresh morning when the action commenced and the opening exchanges of this early afternoon Barclays Under-18 Premier League clash with Wearside’s finest certainly had a bright and breezy feel to them.
       
      Buoyed by victories in their previous two outings, Paul McGuinness’ side were looking to complete the hat-trick and their early play suggested that the Reds were in the mood to achieve that target.
       
      Sunderland, who were kitted out in a smart, all-blue kit, also raced out of the blocks looking more than capable of giving the hosts plenty to think about.        
       
      All the ingredients for a lively encounter appeared to in place and that’s how it unfolded with neither side assuming command but enjoying enough moments in their opponents’ half to generate encouragement.
       
      Real goal chances were rare in the opening period, but the visitors made the most of one they created when winger Jordan Blinko found the net past United’s George Dorrington in the 24th minute.
       
      The Reds introduced two substitutes, Callum Gribbin and Zachary Dearnley, at the start of the second half and it was the latter who was presented with a great opportunity to claim the leveller but his shot, following fine work by Marcus Rashford, flew wide of the upright.
       
      Sunderland, who had been enjoying a positive spell, doubled their lead in the 66th minute. Dorrington’s kick up field failed to find the intended destination and came to ground at the feet of Sunderland’s Ethan Robson. The Black Cats’ youngster took full advantage of his fortune and launched an unstoppable shot to give his side a two-goal cushion.
       
      Not surprisingly, Sunderland’s second strike gave their confidence a huge boost and United had to dig deep in an attempt to salvage something from the contest.
       
      Joe Riley raised hopes in the closing stages with two shots on target that required attention from Black Cats’ keeper James Talbot but the visitors held firm thereafter.
       
      United: Dorrington; Reid, Tuanzebe, Williams, Borthwick-Jackson; Riley, J.Thompson (McTominay 81), Redmond, Rathbone (Dearnley 46); Rashford, Croskery (Gribbin 46). Sub not used: Henderson (GK).
