It was interesting, last weekend; to see the press pick up on just how low the average age of our squad was that finished the Community Shield last Sunday.

With the golden-oldies slowly fading away into the background, Sir Alex Ferguson has signalled his intentions by turning to a younger breed of players and in the build-up to our opening fixture of the 2011/2012 season, Sir Alex has given another broad hint that youth will not only be given its chance but that it will be given a chance to flourish, with the gaffer remarking,

“I`m happy with the young players I`ve got. There`s an emphasis on young players at this club and there always has been.”

“Any player coming through the ranks can threaten anyone. If they have the ability and temperament, there is only one thing you can do and that`s play them.”

“There`s the young boy (Paul) Pogba, who`s showing great promise for us. We`re quite positive about him.”

“If we hold him back, what`s going to happen? He`s going to leave in a couple of years` time when his deal is finished.”


It`ll certainly be interesting to see who does come through, and shine, over the coming months.
