    Rashford poll

    Following on from the Rashford thread - who out of these prominent teens has the brightest future in football ahead of them?

    Out of Rashford, Kelechi and Tammy Abraham

    ****ing ads ruined my poll before I could post it.

    Re: Rashford poll

    Abraham when he gets a chance at a good team I think.

    Some of his finishes are ridiculous!.

  4. #4

    Re: Rashford poll

    Abraham is still a bit lanky as well, when he fills out a bit he will add some strength to his game that I can't see Rashford reaching.
    Rashford has been doing it at a higher level though.

    Marcus-Rashford-Premier-League-2016-17_jan6_radar.jpg
    Tammy-Abraham-Championship-2016-17_jan6_radar.jpgKelechi-Iheanacho-Premier-League-2016-17_radarjan6.jpg

    Rumours are Kelechi is going to be sold in the summer to a bundersliga team, but with buy back clauses.

    Re: Rashford poll

    Tammy shouldn't even be in the discussion. I think Rashford of those three. Look how he exploded onto the scene last season, and despite being restricted to sub appearances for most of this season, he's grabbing at his chance since zlatan got injured, when they have Rooney who could come in.

    But I think Jesus is the best young striker in this country.

    Yeah but has Jesus played at Stoke on a wet wednesday night, eh? The true test of any foreign talent!

    To be fair he's taken to the league like a duck to water, looks special.

    Re: Rashford poll

    Give me strength.

    Tammy Abraham????

    A kid that hasn't even played a game against top opposition and some people think he's the next big thing.

    This is the same kid that got totally bullied out of the game at our place by a guy that hadn't played for months.

    As for Rashford, undoubted potential but let's not get carried away.

    I agree with all that with the caveat that I've seen very little of Gabriel Jesus but he does look the real deal

    Why are you calling him Kelechi and not Iheanacho? Or alternatively calling the other Marcus and Tammy?

    Odd.

    Of the three I mentioned I reckon Kelechi will go the furthest, then Tammy and Marcus do the least, but it will be interesting to see.

    I didn't include Gabriel Jesus as he's already had a huge money move, seems to be first choice when fit at a top side and plays for Brazil, so he's pretty much already there

    Rashford is the best of the lot and by a distance. I've rarely seen a player pick the ball up and run at people like he does, and he can finish. When he came on against Wales he scared the life out of me, and I was also lucky enough to be at the England v Iceland game and he did the same then. Why you've even mentioned Abraham I don't know. Rashford will be the number one striker for Man United next season, and is now with Ibra injured.

    Griezmann for 80 + million would be hilarious.

    He is a quite good attacker.

    Countinho is better and he cost 8.

    Griezmann is better than Coutinho, and by a distance too. He's scored 25 goals this season, Coutinho has scored 39 5 seasons at Liverpool. Griezmann also has more assists than Coutinho. PC is a good player but he score or assist as often as he should.

    Also, I'd be very surprised if Man United spend money on a striker with Rooney, Martial, Rashford etc. Also, they'll have to spend a serious amount of money to get someone, which prices them out of Griezmann.

    Rooney doesn't play as striker any more, probably won't be there next season anyway. Ibra won't be there, so that's their number one striker for this season gone. Martial plays wider.

    They'll buy a striker.

    Rooney is washed up and martial and Rashford can't be relied upon to score frequently enough. I'd be surprised if they don't sign a striker

    hmmmm, maybe.

    But iago aspas has a similar record.

    I don't think griezmann is all that. Would he be better than de bruyne? I don't think so.

    Gylfi Siguršsson of swansea is the third highest assister in the premier league. 9 goals as well. And no one talks of him moving for huge money. He's scrapping in a rubbish team as well, not athletico pummelling teams every now and then.

    For the 80-90-100 million they're on about for griezmann I'd expect a generational talent. Not just an above average midfielder.

    If Man U do this it'll prove to anyone they're there for the taking with transfers. They won't take the risk on buying slightly more unknown people, just throw money at the hyped up players.

    Oh would you behave? Have you actually watched Griezmann play? He's absolutely brilliant. Griezmann has scored 25+ goals a season every year he's been at Atleti and scored 20 for Sociedad the year before.

    Man United have cash to burn so who cares? They spent £90m on a centre mid for crying out loud, so they may as well get an attacking mid for the same price. Above average. Christ. Put your rod away. Also, Atleti are fairly defensive and look to AG to score their goals.

    When Rashford plays through the middle, he scores. He's going to be their main striker.

    Coutinho better than Griezmann ??
    Abraham better than Rashford??

    Are you lit that clueless or being contrary for the sake of it. 2 of the stupidest things I've ever read.

  30. #30

    Re: Rashford poll

    Wow have some people even seen Griezmann play? He's not a midfielder for a start!

    And united will surely get a striker, maybe two.

    He's doing well but not scoring often enough to be their main striker YET. They will make a large purchase in the summer

    It's what clubs like Chelsea do - take any promising youngster, farm him out for a while and see if he makes the grade. If he doesn't then offload him, if he does then they've saved themselves a packet having to go out and spend 50-60 million on a top striker.

    Most of these youngsters end up as surplus to requirements at clubs like Chelsea and even if one does slip through the net then they'll just spend lots of money buying them back like they'll probably do with lukaku in the summer.

    If they rate him that highly then I look forward to seeing how he fares for them next season.

    Let's be honest, even if he makes the grade they still don't think he's "ready". They have Bertrand Traore on loan at Ajax and every time I've watched him he's been on fire but yet they still won't give him a chance next year.

    The current system is an absolute joke and in my opinion the rules have to be changed as Chelsea and their like are abusing the system and have made it into a cash cow from the loan fees they receive

    Exactly.

    http://www.chelseafc.com/teams/on-loan-players.html

    Chelsea have 37 players out on loan.

    Thirty seven???

    Most clubs don't even have that many players on their books.

    A quick look through that list shows 10 strikers out on loan.

    I'm willing to bet that Tammy Abraham has as much chance of pulling on a Chelsea shirt next season as I do.

    Re: Rashford poll

    From the little I have seen he looks like he could be something special.
    However, I doubt that he will develop with United as they and they supporters appear to demand established big names these days.
    If he is to fulfill his promise ( assuming his ego doesn't take over and he adopts the Premiership moneybags attitude) he needs to play first team football on a regular basis and in the same position.
    Newcastle would probably be a good bet but I doubt that United will loan him out but continue to use him as an impact player.

    Re: Rashford poll

    Chelsea are totally abusing the loan system and have been for years. Made even more incredible when you think that John Terry was the last homegrown player to become a regular for them, and he's about to retire most likely.
