Only time will tell Loch...seems a bit premature to write him off already.

So that's a no. No United academy made it big. What would make this one different?

And United is starting to go through that phase where the board only care about the results and the money. Fans are also starting to lose patience with the young players. I mean look at the treatment Martial is getting. If you are an academy lad, you probably have zero hope of making it big.

With motivational speeches like that they should put you in charge of the youth team

I’m no expert on this Loch, but didn’t Pogba, O’Shea, Wes Brown, Evans and Fletcher come through the academy?

Or not. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Upset Angel Gomes By Saying He Was Too Small http://www.sportbible.com/football/tran ... l-20190514

Really old school thinking from Ole when you consider these days the best players in the world are small (Salah, Messi, Iniesta, Xavi). You don't need to be a shithouse to play in midfield in the Prem either, as David Silva proves every week. Or to play as a forward like Salah, Mahrez, Sterling, Bernardo etc.

Depends on how much of that is true. I reckon it's just bullshit.

Recently, Zidane was reported to have said something along the lines of 'if I could have made a 4th substitution, I still wouldn't have brought Bale on'. Made all the tabloids and Skysports etc. Turns out he hadn't said anything like that and it was made up by some hack.

Wasn't so much made up as badly translated. He'd essentially said it wouldn't have made any difference to the result if he'd been able to make a 4th sub.

Anyway, I agree this is likely just bullshit

If the above re Gomes is true, doesn't look like Daniel James is much bigger
