The Future Of Your Team
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
I am not sure if everyone is into youth development as much as I am but here goes.

I want you to make a squad sheet of what your team will look like 10 years from now based on your current first team players and in your reserve team players. And state which youngster you think will make it and who will not.

Manchester united future XI


Rafael----------Johny Evans-----------Cory Evans-------------Fabio



Subs- Morrison, Tosic, Welbeck, De Leat, King, Delvin, Possebon
Manutd7777 (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Rooney rafael nani macheda will shine!
Ciankc (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Ten years from now! That's an old rooney! Otherwise its a great team
Sebparedes (Barcelona) 6 years ago
Don't forget Smalling
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
I didn't forget its just that Cory, Johny and De Leat are better defenders than him at the moment. I know he will shine in the future but this is based on what I know now
Rob12 (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Fabio is suppose to be an awesome left back. I can't wait for him to get his chance. But I don't see Evra leaving anytime soon ha
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
Evra said he might retire from football if france wins the world cup
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
Forget about oberton, cleverely, heaton, cathcart, gray, norwood, eikrem, hernandez, diouf, brown, keane (both brothers)
Sergio 6 years ago
Obertan hasn't got as much potential as the rest ill say, otherwise a strong team lead by rooney, a captain at james's age lol
ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Manchester United own in the youth department!
MariusV (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Man utds future defender is definetly rafael, he's only eighteen and he's on fire, god I hope he plays in every match and stays at united!
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
He is 20 in 6 days
MariusV (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Or he's 20. Forgot, and hernandez is deffinetly gonna' shine
Sebparedes (Barcelona) 6 years ago


Muniesa? ---------Chygrynskyy--------Pique---------Fontas?

Alcantara-------Busquets---------Dos Santos


Obviously if the signing of Fabregas goes through, he will replace Thiago or Dos Santos

Sebparedes (Barcelona) 6 years ago
The beauty of this ofcourse is that for the most part, this already is the current squad
Ltm017 6 years ago
I don't like Chygrynsky. He is awful.... I don't know why I feel like he is clumsy
Riglore (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Amazing, an amazing squad. I think Messi might drop to midfeild Bojan lay in the centre and then.... I don't know your youth well enough to say who your other attacker will be but I'm sure he'll be brilliant
Sebparedes (Barcelona) 6 years ago
Yea messi would be good in midfield with bojan through the middle, in that case I would have jeffren on the right wing, he's already shown some potential this season

As for chygrynskyy, I understand the frustration with him this season but he needs more time.... The return of caceres next season may help his development
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Ooo, something to do after work! Give me a few hours guys

Andylax (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Be pretty impressive if RVP was still going strong in 10 years lol, more likely Bendtner or JET up top
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
Wow. Wonderful, that almost the same squad that you have now. I can tell that your team is going to be very strong

Wengersarmy (Arsenal) 6 years ago
I know the squad will probably have more players from now, but this team highlights our really good youth system....

A more realistic team would have to be the above from james above....

Prejsu (KKS Lech Poznan) 6 years ago
I see that you have high hopes for szczesny. I'm kind of glad, after all he is my fellow countryman. He's a great talent, if you let him progress further, you will have one hell of a GK
Ragarsha (Liverpool) 6 years ago
Liverpool very difficult to say anything in this situation...
M4rsenal (Arsenal) 6 years ago
________________________Alex Song__________________________
___Walcott___________Robin Van Persie*_________Carlos Vela____


*Van Persie will have 36 years of age and will be on the verge of retiring as Bergkamp.
Nicklas Bendtner will be my second choice.
°Fabregas to be in Wilshere's place if he doesn't leave this summer and the next one.


__Walcott_________Bendtner____________Carlos Vela
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
None of you mentioned vermaelen. He will be 34 in the next ten years. Maybe he will get a little slow but he will probably be the most experienced defender at arsenal
Riglore (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Gilbert Djourou Song Gibbs
JET Frimpong Ramsey
Walcott Vela Wilshere
Subs: Fabregas Nasri Bendtner Bartley Coquelin
M4rsenal (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Whoops, I forgot about Vermaelen. He'll be 34, very experienced and won't have the strenght to be a regular defender. He'll be a better Silvestre. A backup, so bench
Realmcoy (Arsenal) 6 years ago
I like your 2 squads m4rsenal.... The future looks bright for the gunners
DerBomber (Real Madrid) 6 years ago
I think you seem to have forgotten about the old defensive pairing of Keown and Adams. They were both old but effective nonetheless, so yep Vermaelen would be ideal. But just surprising no one considered Eboue? I mean yeah, he does screw up, but on his day, he's devastating

------------------rhys taylor-----------------

Hutchinson-----bruma---rajkovic-----van aanholt



I really don't expect to ever see this.... Lets face it, we will be buying quite a few new players. But from my current knowledge, this is the closest I think that I can get it in 10 years
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
Kakuta will be a star. I have seen him playing against united for the reserves and he has wonderful skill. I have seen a few other from you team playing. Knowing chelsea they will buy but at present moment that's the future of chelsea
Blueskiesahead (Chelsea) 6 years ago
Yea I expect to see that whole back line with a bright future, as well as matic, mikel, kakuta, and borini though I'm not so sure about how much more sturridge will improve or how good sala will get. Taylor is another questionable player who I personally don't think is quite good enough to have a future with us but you never know
Keyrock (Chelsea) 6 years ago
You forgot Josh McEachran and Miroslav Stoch
Blueskiesahead (Chelsea) 6 years ago
Wow good calls.... Though stoch may not be returning from loan unfortunatly. Not sure how I forgot them though
Keyrock (Chelsea) 6 years ago
There are rumors that Stoch might leave for Galatasaray in search of first team football. Would be a huge mistake on his part IMO
Juno (AC Milan) 6 years ago
There's a distinct possibility that all eleven won't be at the club comes 10 years later. Its incredibly hard to blood youth. Half way down the road, their real talent might be found incapable of handling the top level football. And at a rich club like Chelsea where blooding the youth hasn't really taken roots into their DNA, I can't see how they could line up.

First thing first, you gotta' have a manager that trust youth and stays for a long time (Ala a Wenger, Fergie). Current incumbent Carlos doesn't seems like one to blood youth
Blueskiesahead (Chelsea) 6 years ago
Carlo ancellotti seems to want to integrate the youth into our first team actually. He has played our youngsters alot more than any previous managers have that's for sure.

And yes I comepletely agree with you. Most of these players will not make it big for us. The only ones I see still playing for us for sure in 10 years are mikel, matic, and kakuta. The others may be able to, but I'm not sure about that
Pragathish (AC Milan) 6 years ago

Atleast, the future looks bright
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
What about lucas, babel, Zhar, agger, Insúa and that youngster simon. They will be old but young enough to play. Agger is the oldest and he will be 35
Rockerr (Liverpool) 6 years ago
I don't think Babel, Insua and El Zhar will last long and ya Simon and Agger could be in there. Too many players are there, hard to choose
Incuteration (Everton) 6 years ago
Kristian Nemeth?
Rockerr (Liverpool) 6 years ago
Yes, Nemeth. Hope he stays with us
Incuteration (Everton) 6 years ago





Subs: Ruddy, Craig, Forshaw, Agard, Akpan, Jutkiewicz, Wallace

Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
That's a great team. I can see everton as a european power in the future. And the best thing is the most of the players in your squad are british. Talk about homegrown
Kimaway17 (Liverpool) 6 years ago
Change 2 4-3-3 wiv Baxter Vaughan and Agard
Somere (Portmore Utd) 6 years ago
We should definitely update our teams at the end of the transfer season
