New January Signings ?
Weeks back LVG talked about Man Utd lacked fast players and he needs it. The name of Saido Mane & Antoine Griezmann being mentioned by the media around UK. Before the summer transfer windows close Pedro just choose Chelsea as his new club instead of Man Utd.
But let us remind that Man Utd got fast players in the form of Valencia, Martial, Depay, James Wilson, Pereira & Jesse Lingard in the squad. Apart from Valencia all of them are still in their early 20’s. All of these players are acceptably fast players and can beat a player with their speed but LVG still complains that he needed more fast players. Van Gaal need to consider these young players to blend them into the squad and use them. These young players will give more speed to the gameplay of Man Utd and LVG should give these youngsters their chance to show what they can do! Why waste money for a new signing?
19 years old Andreas Pereira, he’s a Brazilian and plays for the U-20 team that reach the final of the Under 20 World Cup Final. He’s skillful, fast, had an eye for goal as well creating them. He also adept at taking free kicks. He won the Young Player Of The Year for the club last season. So you know, PSG & Juve are interested in him last season.
22 years old Jesse Lingard, an Englishman and he came from the youth set up of the club in 2011. Before this season he spent on loan at 4 different clubs and the most successful is at Birmingham where he scored 6 goal in 13 appearance. He’s not skillful as Pereira but he’s fast, hardworking lad, like to shoots and can play adept at LW or RW.
James Wilson, 19 years old. He came through the club's youth academy just like Pereira & Lingard. He’s a fast pace striker and his finishing is good for a 19-year-old. Just give him the ball and he will chase it. LVG believes in him and that's why he able to sell Welbeck.
The biggest hype of them all is this fella. Memphis Depay ( 21 years old). A 26 million pound signing from PSV. Last season he took the stage by storm when he scored 22 goals in the Dutch Eredivisie and he became the top scorer for PSV. But, since his move to United, he somehow fails to convince the team and fans that he is able to adapt to the physical side of the premier league. He just tries to take on defenders and shoot rather than pass it to a teammate when possible. He loses the ball so often by the way. But, he just move to United just to be fair, it is not easy for a young lad that comes from another culture of football to the rough EPL to adapt. He needs to buckle up and work hard like Ronaldo first moved to United years ago. I believe Depay will come good at the end and LVG and Giggs must advise him properly to be a good player for Manchester United. He got all the attributes to be a great player, fast, can shoot left or right foot and can beat a player with his skills and pace. Now he just needs time to adapt and train hard and work hard to claim a place in the United lineup.
LVG needs to give this young lads a chance to have some playtime. He said that he needs fast players? Just trust these young players and give them a chance like Fergie did it before with Scholes, Neville’s, Beckham, Butt and Giggsy. Rather than playing Mata on the wings, put him in his respectable position which he could be more effective carve out chances. Finally, do DROP ROONEY LVG, HE’S BEEN HORRIBLE FOR THIS SEASON. #GGMU
