Name: 

Adilson Angel Abreu de Almeida Gomes

Age:

31st August 2000 (18 years old)

Appearances:

4 senior clubs appearances

 

Angel Gomes is one of the most technically gifted players that Manchester United has ever produced. Standing at just 5ft 4", he makes up for what he lacks in height with his football intelligence and quick feet. He made his debut under José Mourinho at just 16 years of age in 2017, but will be hoping for more first team exposure as he enters the final year of his teens this season. He's already won an U17 FIFA World Cup with England and was part of the Man Utd U18's squad that won The U18 Premier League in 2017/2018. Last season was a tough time for Man Utd U23's, struggling to find any kind of form under former manager Ricky Spragia. Gomes was one of the few players to find any sort of consistency, chipping in with 6 goals & 5 assists, plus 2 goals in The UEFA Youth League. With United playing their football in The Europa League this season, Gomes will be hoping to get plenty of minutes under his belt in that competition should he not go out on loan after finishing up pre-season with the first team squad.

I called it. Horrific debut.

Doesn't have it in him to assert himself at this level - Even in the youth team he often has to drop out of position to get involved. Plays on the periphery and produces moments which will obviously dry up at senior level.

He looks incredibly over-matched physically and his technique wont be enough to compensate. His peak level is current Mata, who is a corpse with ball control. 

Move on.

Two best individual plays in the first half of anyone. Hard to shine when everyone around you is also playing like crap.

Rashford was worse. Greenwoods all round play looked bad aside from the goal as well. No comment on Chong.

Thought he was one of our best players tonight tbh weird people are giving him shit he had some real bright moments and looked our player most likely to create something for us. 

Can he be better? Absolutley but still think it was a good performance and didn't do himself any harm in pushing for more chances imo. Worked hard too.

Wonder how many games before he actually has to take responsibility for his performances.

The usual bullshit about not using him correctly which we heard about Kagawa, Mata, Martial etc. 

There’s always one of these players. Meanwhile Greenwood stars out of position. Tragic.

He's got a great first touch and turn which i think is key if he's going to play in the hole. He won us no end of free kicks with little bits of skill and turns. 

He totally died just after half time though, i'm not sure someone of his size  and age playing against men quite has the fitness to last 90 minutes at the moment he couldn't even take corners after a while but i though he was positive. 

Its always going to be hard for a young lad to come in and perform when he's got players defending for their lives against him but also has Matic recycling the ball from left to right rather than trusting him and passing the ball into the middle for him to work with.

Been a bit shit lately, this lad eh?

He's just too small. Owenzy and his fan-club aren't wrong about his technical ability but there's a reason even Messi needed to HGH up. 

He's genuinely got the frame of a child and he's now 19. He needs to do nothing but hit weights and eat fish for 12 months. He's got time to do that but he'll probably not make it even if he does.
