Webchat: Gemma Thompson

ManUtd.com journalist Gemma Thompson fielded questions from fans in a live webchat from the team hotel in Toronto. If you missed it, here's the full transcript...

Who has been most impressive during the training sessions?Harun Nasuf
Considering the lads only got back from their summer holidays last week, I think they're all looking pretty sharp. As I've mentioned in my blog, I don't envy them training in the heat out here but it'll definitely benefit them in the long run.

I've only seen bits of him in training so far but when I spoke to Wes Brown yesterday he said Chris has fitted in really well and looks a quality defender. Hopefully he might get a run-out tonight.

You haven't had much time but how do you like the city of Toronto? - Nathan Burch
