Ravel Morrison had a great debut in the League cup last night; he seemed to be given a free role and he was all over the pitch for the final 20 minutes of the game. He reminds me of Wayne Rooney in a few ways. He is very aggressive and strong, he loves to run at defences as well as shoot from range. His short passing is sublime too and he linked up beautifully with Dimitar Berbatov who might I say put in a top draw performance; chasing lost causes and creating and scoring a goal.
Paul Pogba is another favourite of mine and had a good game once settled down from a couple of mis-timed tackles early on. Pogba is a central mid-fielder who has great composure on the ball and is always looking to recieve in space. I think the future is bright for both us and them.
Tom Cleverley also played an hour in his return from injury- He damaged a ligament in his foot I believe. The injury was caused by an idiotic Kevin Davies' tackle at Bolton. That was a great away day despite Davies being a w@#ker as usual.
