So what's peoples thoughts on McTominay? I've seen him. compared online both favourably and unfavorably to Fletcher.

I like the look of him. He doesn't try to overplay, plays it easy, is positionally sound and seems to have good stamina. I actually think Fletcher was a great player, not exactly at Pogba or Scholes level but was crucial in his prime nonetheless. Comparing Scott to Fletch for me is a compliment to Scott, and he can only improve. Its really weird though, I've seen many prospects praised while they are still playing U18,U19. I don't think I ever heard of Scott until he was in the 1st team. If he can keep playing like this then we'll probably need just one midfield player to replace Fellaini and can focus on strengthening the full back areas.

He’s tidy and unassuming, nothing flashy but breaks up lay and keeps it simple. I think if he wants t make it he probably needs to find a niche, some part of the game he can excel at.

Yesterday he was fouled and battered throughout but he bounced up and got on with it. Interesting that even though we used 3 subs he completed the full 90 minutes.

I like the look of him - neat and tidy strong in the tackle looks for the ball in and out of possession. Not a showy player at all but could be a key squad player in the future.

He's fearless. Not afraid to play his game. Plenty of prospects would have wilted under the pressure of replacing Pogba in an EPL game. I imagine he did exactly what was asked of him, was posituonally astute and is prepared to make plays either driving or passing the ball forward as well as the steady keep possession sideways stuff.

Players like him are priceless in a squad that wants to win things.

If he has half the career that Darren had, then he’ll retire a very happy and successful man.
