Mourinho will do what he did at Chelsea and play players out of position(Hazard/Oscar at 9, Luiz at DM) before turning to academy players.

It works for him and so you can't complain too much.

Chelsea's array of talent has clearly been proven to be one of the best in europe(if not the best at U19 level) the past few years.

Saying that, if there is a youth player that's just ready made as a first team player then Mourinho is clearly going to play him. I doubt there is a player like that in your squad though.
Its a shame they don't make the jump with the big boys in u21's.
We certainly have a lot of players who'd benefit from getting some gamete under their belt and they've proven at under21 level that they are good enough. Not saying play them week in week out, but you cannot deny the quality. Give them the opportunity and they will do well.

If Mourinho hates to use youth so much then he won't take the United job, he'll go to Madrid where he can buy any player he wants.

Woah, take that Kenan and Kel

Shut your mouth and know your role!



A few decent results and we're all of a sudden talking positively about LVG again, **** him.

He'll leave by ''mutual consent'' as soon as the season is over

Hopefully its as quick as West Ham getting rid of Allardcye last year

With the way he's been playing, I think Varela should be made 1st choice RB with Darmian as backup. Varela took care of Sanchez with relative ease yet Darmian struggled when confronted with the same task. Obviously we shouldn't just base it on that and the few games Varela's played, but I think we should leave Varela where he is and make it Darmian's job to try and displace him if he can. When Darmian becomes fit he shouldn't automatically be reinstated as RB imo. Let him fight for it.

Agreed.

Darmian injury and Rooney injuries were actually blessings in disguise. The Fellaini injury was ultimate blessing though. Can't believe Herrera used to sit on the bench every game for Fellaini.

You're right. Same as Valencia. He's back in training now. Neither of them were playing well before their injuries. Varela should continue playing until/if his form dips.

Real Madrid since then have promoted Jesé and they utilised Morata a fair bit in the 13/14 season. They also got Carvajal back from Leverkusen who was a Castilla product that was sold under Mourinho(while it was clear Arbeloa was declining as a player)

Chelsea I hear have plans to promote youth but with a trigger happy Abramovich I can see why people won't be too keen on utilising youth.

Realistically I think Abramovich has stopped his 'win the league or you're fired' antics. But realistically top 4 or sacked makes sense bar for inconceivable circumstances.
Youth has been a big priority for Abramovich for awhile now, Mourinho made some big claims about our youth in his time here and failed to deliver, although in fairness his time with us was cut short.

I am enjoying United fans trying to convince themselves Mourinho will use youth when every piece of evidence points to the contrary though. If he manages to stay with United long term then possibly, but again there's little to say that will happen, and I'd be surprised if United decide to give him a long contract.

His ego will have been bruised massively from this season and he'll be given £100m at the bare minimum to spend over the summer. He won't want to lose out to us and with Pep at City, nothing less than the title will be good enough for him. He won't be taking chances on youth players unless absolutely necessary, or as you say if there's someone good enough to break into the first team imminently.

Mourinho didn't actually do too badly with youth, his reputation goes before him. Gave at least 7/8 youngsters their debuts, though if only 3/4 of them were actually meaningful I think the rest are justified being one off's/cameos as the likes of John Swift etc haven't done well away on loans. Solanke/Brown and maybe Baker would have been in his first team plans in a year or two's time. He can't be blamed if Chalobah/Bamford go away and can't get into the first team. The board also brought in the likes of Zouma/Kenedy which stifled our first team.

Last season was all about results until the trophies were won. Tbh, Hiddink has done little more than Jose did this season wrt to playing youth players/rotating. He doesn't even give Begovic cup games.

Giving youth players a few minutes here and there doesn't count as doing well with youth. Not a single youth player made any significant steps towards the first team under his two and a half year tenure, United fans seem to be expecting a lot more than that. I don't disagree with what you're saying though, I would have liked him to use youth more but there are mitigating circumstances.

Remember when he said all that stuff about Loftus-Cheek getting a run of games? Subbed off at half time against Villa and out of the squad barely two weeks later. That he should be blamed if Baker, Brown and Solanke weren't playing for England in a few years? All shipped off on loan and Falcao brought in.

tbf he gave Loftus Cheek more minutes than any of our youth players since the AVB/Di Matteo days last season. But yeah it isn't great but not as bad as made out by rival fans.

United have only given so many youth players minutes because the rest of them are always getting injured and they've bought poorly. And Moyes did a better job with Januzaj than LVG has with any of the youth players under his reign. This Rashford guy looks like a natural finisher though.

Aye, a grand total of 140 minutes, all but 7 of which coming after we'd secured the title, and the remainder from Sporting at home, aka "the day of the academy".
