Match discussion thread for discussing Mason Greenwood's performances.
I think his trajectory will be that of RVP who he’s been likened to many times. He learns his trade out wide and then moves into the centre. The headed chance he had vs Burnley showed he still has work to do on that area. I think he’s fine where he is right now but I fully expect him to become a superstar.
The report I read was that after Southgate spoke to Ole it was mutually agreed that Greenwood would be best served staying at home to refocus on his responsibilities as a professional footballer.Stories doing the rounds again today about concerns over his attitude in training.
Suggestion is club don’t think he’s fully focused on his football and needs to be more focused.
Wasn’t recalled by England either after his ban whereas Foden was.
Let’s hope it’s just a kick up the backside that works as there’s so much talent there.

I have to say I like Southgate in his role and his approach to such things. I believe he would put the development (and if you like) corrective behaviour of young players by their clubs before his own requirements, within reason of course.
Report states the player arrested is in his 20s Greenwood is only 19.
Also, the reporting of his absence lately being off field related could be down to one of his mates committing suicide. He dedicated his goal vs Leipzig to that young lad who was at City who committed suicide
That was only added to the report in the last hour or so. Which is good news for Greenwood at least. Whatsapp and Twitter were rife with the rumours it was him which is only more stuff on his shoulders.
Hopefully the club can help him through what must be a difficult time.
