Bruun's blog: What for any talents?

I clap my small hands?

this season, Manchester United has given playing time to a large number of the club's own talents. It has been the club's chefretoriker Ole Gunnar Solskjær and many fans to swarm on United's dna, the Busby Babes and Class of 92. But then, excuse me: Memories it is not the most about Comical Ali?

For those so-called talents are not good enough, and so far as I am aware, it has never been in Manchester United's dna to mess around in the middle of the Premier League. Yes, I've been a fan of Manchester United since 1976, and it is as such, I write this column. As a fan. A frustrated one at that.

For it is a huge sign of weakness that players such as James Garner, Brandon Williams and Tahith Chong has been playing in the Premier League this season.

They would not even be near the squad of the other big clubs. Fair play to Mason Greenwood, the 18-year-old striker, for he has demonstrated some potential and was also the only United player who was called up to the latest English U21-landsholdstrup.

most would argue that the two biggest talents in English football right now is Phil the Foot from the Manchester City and Rhian Brewster from Liverpool. They have taken leading roles at the English U-national team in years. But playing in the Premier League? Yes, the Foot makes a rare time. Brewster never does. For after all, they have no chance.

Liverpool is trying like so many other English best clubs to hype players like Brewster, and before him, Harry Wilson and Benjamin Woodburn. But the sole of the club's own players, who in recent years have worked their way up to the varsity, is still Trent Alexander-Arnold. An indictment of the club's talentarbejde? Then, a sign of førsteholdets huge boost.

I will allow me to put the same magnifying glass down over Manchester United talentarbejde. It's good, because so many players get a debut in the first team? Not as far as I can see.

recently commented I United in a Europa League match against FC Astana in Kazakhstan, and presented here Solskjær six debutants and so young a team, goalkeeper Lee Grant could have been the father of virtually all his opponents. The match was of no importance, and the whole team was flat.

It can be exciting enough to get the 'future players' to see, but I hope I not, that there are many 'right' førsteholdskampe ahead for those guys.

United lost namely 1-2 to a Kazakh team that he had sent several of their best players on holiday. Debutanterne Ethan Laird, Di’Shon Bernard, Dylan Levitt, Largie Ramazani, D’Mania Bughail-Mellor and Ethan Galbraith will most certainly remember the day the rest of their lives, and I understand. Just it had been me. But it does not change the fact that they each delivered a performance that really was not worthy of the Manchester United.

Was I surprised? Then, for the same players were separated by FC Midtjyllands U19-team in a Youth League game at the MCH Arena in Herning, denmark, for less than a year ago. I was more dejected. I saw no new Marcus Rashford, which I did in February 2016, where I was lucky enough to comment on the unknown attacker, when he debuted with to destroy the very same FC Midtjyllands first team.

I know that people react, when I, as a commentator criticise the young players. I am without patience and understanding, they say. But I insist, now even to judge footballers on their performance, whether they are 17 years old or twice as old.

I believe not, for example, that in itself is a positive thing to play with young players. At least not in a club as Manchester United. If the young players should be able to apply here, so they must saftsuseme be both young and good. Like David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers when they were in 1995/96 did Alan Hansen's famous words, "you don't win anything with kids", to shame and won the English championship.

Manchester United are not masters in this or in the next season. But if they are to build the future team of the club's current young players, yes, so they do not the next ten years.

There is the so-called talents quite simply too bad.
