    Must be slow news day. If the result was reversed would have been along the lines of "United local fledglings outclass City's expensive imports".

    I found that risible. When I saw the video clip there were as many red shirts as blue. Biased gets. Yer can see where the BBC, Sky and BT get it from!

    There's invariably some kind of verbiage when MANUre kids are on the up. When they aren't and get a good stuffing it's buried like all 'bad news'!

    The one thing just missing at the moment is the 'last jiggle'! Look at Messi and he will round the last defender and score. I've seen a good number where Brahim has had the ball nicked at the last minute. He's got more potential than I think I have seen in any City kid, but potential is one thing and reality another. He's tailor-made for David Silva's place. Merlin just needs to hang on in there for a couple of more seasons . . . . . . .!

    Might just give Diaz a different role and let Phil Foden have Silva's role. Then just have to find the right slot for Sancho and we are sorted!

    Their average age was 19y9m starting XI and including subs.

    So They're over a year older on average.

    It's testament to our kids that even the youngest like Sancho looked comfortable even up against players like El Fitouri, Harrop and Goss - 6 and 5 years older than him respectively.

    Our 'old generation' loan players would be younger than many of their team.
