Iqbal and Mejbri have the potential to take McTominay’s place but are probably at least a year away in terms of development. Will be interesting to see how Mejbri does on loan at Birmingham (and Amad at Sunderland) this season
Why don’t we just start integrating them into the first team ffs. That’s the only way to discover whether they’re good enough. Surely there must be guys in there with infinitely more talent than Rashford, McTominay and Elanga? Well actually, I can answer my own question, there are. We saw Garnacho and Iqbal in particular, playing with pace and composure in pre season, yet we persist with cunts like Elanga. Fucking blind cunts that are running the football side I’m afraid.
agree with jm1502 – you could see the difference players like Saka and Smith Rowe made when they came in and took the places of big transfer players who weren’t performing (Pepe for example).
Garnacho is definitely an upgrade on Elanga.
Iqbal might not be on McTominay… yet.
Young players need to be given the freedom to express themselves and show they can make it, or else we’re gonna end up with players like Chong and Gomes who will just be fancy young stars on paper and we lose them for nothing after a few years.
@happy – Just in case it escaped your attention three of those managers ended up being kicked out of the club, and if ETH can’t find a better solution (even as a squad player) for that talentless, oafish sack of shivering shite by this time next year at the latest then the same fate awaits him as well, simple as that
@jm1502 – to be fair, Mejbri has shown glimpses that he has the skill to make it; now whether he is given a chance is another matter. Could end up being like Pogba were he leaves, is given a chance and makes it… maybe not.
