None of those were released in the same fashion - not a one.

 

As for your Wilson point - don't be daft, everyone knows he's playing through injury at the moment and that was clear as day the other night. Countless other recent games to contradict your argument.

Who said they were?

Okay then, I must have missed his terrific build up play, his numerous assists, his unbelievable hold up play and his awesome general play these past few years.

Wilson does things and does them incredibly well, which are 1. Latch onto through balls and finish 9/10 2. Picks up the ball from just outside the D and and scores individual wonder goals.

They are what his whole game is based on right now. They are two great traits to have but he is still incredibly raw and has a lot to work on before he can fulfill his potential. Because he has Suárez and Messi like pace, agility, dribbling and finishing ability. But he'll have to improve his overall game in order to become the player he should

What he has can't be coached. But what he needs to improve on can be..

Another "signing"......  Maybe we will hear of him again in a few years.

 

A lot of the time its more about giving these young kids a fantastic opportunity in life (forget the football for a second). Its near impossible to for the club to actually look at an 8 year old and think he'll have potential.

We have topped the group after winning every remaining matches and proceeded to the "Gold group".Today we finished 2nd in the Gold group after we drew Sparta Praha 3-3,lost 0-1 vs. Porto,won Ajax 3-1,Shalke 04 2-0 and Karpaty Lviv 2-0.Unfortunately we couldn't beat the same Ajax team in the final (I'm not really certain about the scoreline but it's either 1-2 or 2-3) so Ajax won the competition and we finished 2nd.

 

All in all, good result and experience for the lads.

http://www.manutd.com/en/Players-And-Staff/The-Academy/Academy-News/2014/Jun/academy-first-year-intake-2014-2015-manchester-united.aspx

 

Reds sign first-year scholars Manchester United have signed eight first-year scholars to bolster Paul McGuinness' Under-18 squad for next term.

The latest intake includes players who were blooded in 2013/2014 with Marcus Rashford the most experienced of the group after making 10 Academy league appearances and also starting the FA Youth Cup tie at Leicester City.

Manchester-born Rashford, who already has four goals to his name for McGuinness' side, is the only forward among the selection with Ollie Byrne the solitary goalkeeper. Defenders Jimmy Dunne, Tyler Reid and Charlie Scott will compete for places at the back.

Axel Tuanzebe and Tosin Kehinde, who has already made his Under-21 bow for the Reds despite being the youngest of the eight, are joined by Travis Johnson as the midfield options in the group.

Surprised we haven't brought in any players so far. English or Foreign.

 

Malinkovic seems the only one. And being linked with Mensah the Dutch defender.

Didn't know where to post this but Adrien Rabiot Close to signing for Inter apparently. Juve and Milan also keen.

Not sure why we are not interested as we've been tracking him for a while now.

Kingsley Coman another player we were tracking and linked with and is supposed to be a real good talent signed for Juventus from PSG. They are considering it another Pogba type deal apparently.

We already had 3 quality wingers in that crop (Makela,Dearnley,Kenyon) so would be interesting if we add another one to the fold.

 

Wingers attackers can always be rotated and play different positions as we do. Seems very highly rated talent too.

 

But why do we need another Goalkeeper ?

 

 

This all could be part of Bebe deal, btw.

I think you've read too much into this.These are 14-15 years old kids...

 

We also have Gribbin as no.10 in that crop (and Gomes in the age group below who will likely to play above of his age group).Competition would be really stiff in 1-2 years time.

 

For the GK we have only 1 in the U15s (Campbell) and 1 in the U16s (Pierce) so we have to sign a new one sooner or later either way.

They are 15 going on 16 i assume hence could move. Benfica have rejected actual bids from other clubs for them so for them to allow us a trial surely means we have agreed something as the article says.

 

Gomes is too young as well, as i can see big 16 year old talents leapfrogging into the U18's like previous foreign talents.

I doubt Benfica could really reject bid from other clubs unless the rule in Portugal is different from the rest.They're still too young to sign scholarship or pro contract so they're free to move as long as they want and we pay the compensation fee.

 

Gomes already trained regularly with the U16s-U17s crop I can see him doing a Rashford/Wilson next season.Dearnley and Williams might even become U18s regulars this season especially Williams who are no.3 choice CB as things stand but Borthwick-Jackson will likely to be used more at left back.Kenyon and Makela were a bit behind schedule due to injuries but they're highly rated within the club.

      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).
