Talking Point: Blooding the kids


“For the Scunthorpe game I’d like to see players like Darron Gibson and Federico Macheda play. I would have liked to have seen Tom Cleverley in action, but obviously he is now out on loan with Wigan. Corry Evans is another one who could be given an opportunity to show what he can do. It will be similar to the team that he played against Rangers, maybe with one or two other young lads thrown in.”
Steven Amsbry

“I’d like to see Bebe come into the side, and it’d be good to see Macheda team up with Javier Hernandez too. It’s a good chance for all the young players to get a run-out. Any players that have a chance of making it should be given a shot in the team. They’re doing very well. I was a bit disappointed with Fabio on Tuesday night but that was because of the way Rangers played. He couldn’t really get forward. He should get given another chance to shine.”
Kevin Halligan

“I’d prefer the first-team to keep playing and get a run of wins going. I’d like to see us get our defence sorted out and playing together regularly. It’s not working at the moment and that’s perhaps because of all the changes we’ve made. That said, I thought Chris Smalling had a good game against Rangers. He seemed quite steady. He seemed quite steady next to Rio.”
Carl Glenn

“Gibson has come on a lot, so he should play. I also like Obertan and I’d like to see him given a chance. Evans is one of the older younger heads now but mainly I’m looking forward to seeing Gibson and Obertan. They are my two favourite youngsters. I’ve not seen too much of Corry Evans, but what I have seen of him looks good so I say get him on the pitch. Sir Alex will mix it up a bit.”
Anthony Poole

“I’d like to see Gibson and Hernandez given an opportunity. But I still feel that this season Gabriel Obertan should be given a go, especially now Valencia is injured.”
