Mason Greenwood- Time To Deliver?
Held him since pre-season and certainly have no intention of selling. Still worth jumping on the train, biggest thing since Giggs to come out of the United academy.
Biggest thing since Ravel Morrison*
Don’t get me wrong - he seems to have a much calmer head on his shoulders - and is far more likely to succeed. But many kids of his quality have come through the MU academy since 1992.
@playingcards1 Agreed. Just to clarify I don't support MU, but I think Greenwoods record speaks for it self and now in the u21 as the next level.
I can understand why this would be a good time to sell. What he's done to this point has been purely hype and not alot of substance. Now with Martials injury this is all getting very real and Greenwood is second choice striker. His time to prove himself is near. It's sink or swim time.
Don’t get me wrong if think he can get to £5, but you can make that increase in another player with less risk.
@Tom77 yeh he had a 60p rise ish when he got his start last season and collapsed when he didn't score... So I've sold now to take the risk free profit. He could score vs saints and rocket to £6 and win MB... He could play 60 mins without a goal and plummet. Overall I think his stock will rise so I'm not advising anyone to sell.. Just feels right time for me to shift that money now I've made very high profit
Greenwood could actually be king of the index with 5-10 impressive performances, showing Sancho like talent (which he has) but actually delivering dividends at the number 1 media club.
Sure he's probably overpriced but that's the index now, joint king sancho has never won PB, has only 1 MB 1st place and is relying on a move to United which is far from certain but that hasn't stopped him. As you might've guessed I'm baffled Sancho became king so soon but on the upside it's given me great hope for Greenwood.
I can understand the temptation to take profit but with that easy EL group, easy LC draw, England u21's and how light we are up front I think holders should show some heart and enjoy the ride, you don't wanna be like Timmy atouba above being bitter you sold too early when he's king 🤣
@NallyCat You have sold it for me to keep him. Let's hope it is an enjoyable ride.

Please tell me my sarcasm radar is malfunctioning right now and you didn't mean this ludicrous statement as anything other than sarcastic banter?
@LukeMalla Like I said, I don't support them but I have read numerous people say this but yes, a bit of sarcastic banter, simply poking the bear as they say.
But he is this price for a reason at the end of the day. He deserves his chances and his progression is pretty quick currently from towards the end of last year.
I am in no way trying to scaremonger and am simply saying it as I see it.
His price will be particularly volatile over the coming weeks.
If he scores a goal, plays well, or produces high PB scores, then his price will continue to rise.
If he underperforms, many will jump ship, but his price shouldn't drop too much.
My main concern, and a consideration all holders should have, is the impact of a significant injury.
It happened with CHO, who was (in my opinion) overpriced, and got injured. He dropped over £1 in a matter of hours.
Worth thinking about, if you haven't already considered this. 👍
He’s 17 years of age, anyone thinking he’s going to score a hattrick or set the world alight over the next few games is deluded. The fact he’s 17 and around the first team tells you everything you need to know of how highly thought of he is at United.
Even in this post there is so much unsubstansiated comments regarding the potential of Mason. Twitter is much worse of course. It's unhelpful but I guess it drives the price up for those who would appreciate that. The only thing we've got to go on is the club has put alot of faith in him ahead of seasoned premier League performers Lukaku and Sanchez. He's got a decent highlight reel but not dazzling. He needs a collection of special moments in a senior shirt before we can make fanciful statements being banded about.
The upside for me is he's third choice striker in a team who in the coming week will face Rochdale in the Carabao Cup and Astana, Partizan Belgrade and AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League. If he's as good as some say he is he's likely to get headlines here.
This is a very good point and worth noting!
@Dalien-Smith If he doesn’t perform then there will be a lot of people saying I told you so on this forum. Seen it all before. Huge gamble at this huge price.
Is angel Gomes not a safer bet at half the price? See his golazo for u23s tonight?!
@NewUser348798 Hi I've only been active here for 2 months and brought 300 at £3.50, and I really don't know when to sell. But I was under the impression that Carabou cup doesn't count?
