Advantages: young, shows signs of a very good player
Disadvantages: too many players to compete with
Another prime example of United's stunning youth system. He's come through the ranks at the club and has played well for the England under 21's. We don't often get to see him play but for small time cup games and when other, high profile players are rested, but there's something about him that tells you he's going to be big.
He has pace, skill and determination - not afraid of making a tackle nor taking on a defender. He can run, at times, like Luke Chadwick and Ryan Giggs, but doesn't have that cutting edge that the great players do...not yet, anyway. He's still very young and can only get better as he gains more experience. He's still got a very tough job in front of him if he wants to make it into the United first team, with so many great players ahead of him in the midfield. He's either going to stick it out and battle with Beckham, Giggs, Scholes, Keane, Butt, Chadwick, Fortune, Blomqvist etc, etc. or he can move away to pastures new and get a first team place on a more regular basis.
Either way, good luck to him.
