Which United Youngster Are You Most Looking Forward To See?

Fraizer Campbell
Danny Simpson
Ben Amos
Evandro Brandao
Rodrigo Possebon
Danny Welbeck

Of the above, or any other up an dcoming United startlet, who are you hoping to
see most of?

Fraizer Campbell - Seems to have been around for a while. On the cusp of
first team action. Has made his name through his exploits in the reserves.

Danny Simpson - Argueably the most impressive last season making first
team appearences most notably the home game against Wigan where he
excelled on the right wing almost scoring!

Ben Amos - Probably has the most work of the ones listed above what with
the Dutchman in goals now and two very safe keepers coming behind in Ben
Foster and Thomaz Kusczazk.

Evandro Brandao - The Anderson of the youngsters according to most who
speak of him. Is expected to gain much needed experience next season and
tipped to break into the first team if his potential is founded.

Rodrigo Possebon - Tipped by most as the next big thing to come through
the ranks. Signed by Sir Alex in January '08 from Sporting Club Internacional,
Possebon has made quite a name for himself around Old Trafford.

Danny Welbeck - A very silky player with a great shot in his repatoire. Often
expected to play last season in the first team but making the bench at most.

Obviously, we all want to see most if not all of them develop into players who are
pushing for first team opportunities but who are you hoping to see the most?

For me its got to be the last name on that list, Danny Welbeck. Reminds me of
Jermaine Defoe in both appearance an dstyle of play. Not the tallest in the world,
but bags of ability and quality footwork.

I remember watching a few games last season where he simply stunned me to
the way he approached his decisions be it pass, run or shoot. With all the media
believing that either Huntelaar, Benzema or Berbatov could be Old Trafford bound
you do have to question why? We do have players coming up through the ranks
so why destroy their hopes and dreams by buying a new striker who, to be fair is
streets ahead of them in terms of ability, but in heart and effort? Welbeck is the
main one up there who I want to see more of this season coming.

Heres a good video of a pre season game last year. Fair enough, thats not a
world class side in front of him but its a team who want to win and he wants to
prove a point so he's going to want to give it his all. What strikes me most in that
clip above is the sheer composure of the lad. And don't post crap about him
skying a penalty either! What a moment that must have been for him. The fact
that players like Rooney and Fletcher stood aside and said, here, you deserve it
mate, simply must have heapped incredible pressure on him. His ability is there
and it swaiting t come out in my opinion. Oh, off topic completly here, but LMFAO
at John O'Shea's run in that video (Time: 1:09) Looks like he has no idea
what he's at! :p.....Irish Legend! Anyways...

This next video is from the Manchester Senior Cup. Again, highlights my points
over Welbeck's potential. This one also highlights Rodrigo Possebon's capabilities

It was a tough choice between Campbell, Wellbeck and Simpson, but of the three Simpson is the closes to first team material.

I only saw Campbell twice and he didn't leave much of an impression, but nerves probably got the best of him.

Simpson left a positive impression and he even set up a goal for rooney against Wigan and almost scored against Newcastle.

Danny Simpson gets my vote as the youngster I'm most looking forward to.

I also believe that Posseborn will make it. this guy is great. His touch and passing are great and I believe he stands the best chance of all the youngsters, I just don't think he will get his chance next season.

Whoever we sign, Manucho is the player I'm most looking forward to.

If he can adapt to the prem, we probably would have saved ourselves 15 million pounds or more with him.

Amos and Possebon also extremely good prospects.

There are some there which are closer to first team material (Campbell, Simpson) But I believe those 3 will come out better in the future.

Where's Evans?!

I went for Wellbeck initially. But after watching the videos,
Eckersley looks like an impressive defender and Possebom
looks lke a quality midfielder. Good time ahead :cool:

In order:

1) Possebon
2) Simpson
3) Welbeck

Was Ben Amos on :eek:
Yes but he had to leave in a rush.:D

He was always rushing around, once he had to borrow
the clubs helicopter so he could get home and post on
here 30 minutes after a United game. :D

I've already seen most of them play for the reserves but I'd like to see more of Macheda. I only saw him briefly because he mainly played for the youth team last season.

In terms of who I'd like to see get a chance in the 1st team squad it's a toss up between Welbeck and Possebon. Although I was a fan of Brandy when I saw him and would love to see him given a chance.

Lol. How to forget?! :D

And he was 'ambushed' and confronted by a few of us in the shoutbox about it. That was the last we heard from him in this forum. :D
