    It's called confidence, nothing wrong with that. Look at Zlatan or Ronaldo both are arrogant to some degree but no one really chats **** about their skill because they prove it on the pitch, they already know their great players.
    Yeah, and that's exactly the point. They have proven themselves to be the best. Pereira has done nothing to warrant having a large ego. Unless playing well in the u21's warrants it?

    Arrogance is not confidence

    Arrogance is thinking you're better and matter more than everyone else, it comes from the ego.

    Confidence is having faith in yourself and knowing you are great but not better than anyone. You are aware of your surroundings more and respect others.
    Get out of here with that b.s.

    To become a great you have to have a ridiculously strong belief in your own ability and the belief that you can be (or are) better than everyone else. Lets look at examples of greats:

    Ali- "I'm the greatest thing that has ever lived. I am king of the world"

    C.Ronaldo- "I see myself as the best footballer in the world. If you don't believe you're the best, then you will never achieve all that you're capable of"

    Zlatan- "I don't need a trophy to tell myself I'm the best"

    Mayweather- "I am the best. No one is better than me"

    This is a trait of great people in every sport just some are more humble about it (like Messi for example or Zidanne etc etc) and don't want to actually admit it but deep down that thought of being better than everyone else is always there.

    Arrogance can be perceived as being very confident in one's ability.

    All about perspective.

    He's pretty much proved himself playing for U21s. Unfortunate he never really got as much game time as Lingard lol

    Angel Gomes is the best talent we have under 18 atm (followed by Gribben), but let's not say anything rash... he is 15.

    Now I could let these dream killers kill my self-esteem
    Or use my arrogance as the steam to power my dreams

    I use it as my gas, so they say that I'm gassed
    But without it I'd be last, so I ought to laugh
    So I don't listen to the suits behind the desk no more
    You ****** wear suits cause you can't dress no more

    My favourite Kanye song.

    When was United black?

    I remember when we had a midfield of Mikel, Essien, Ramires with Malouda, Anelka, Drogba. Those were the good days.

    You are and I'm dumping my **** on this thread. This was relevant to the confidence vs arrogance discussion.

    Him and Adam Johnson would get Prison FC into the Premier League in no time.
