I watched the extended highlights on the official website.
So far it looks like Mount is Van De Beek mk II.
He doesn't seem to be involved in the game. Worrying signs.

I'm not going to judge anyone on pre-season, especially a new signing. But I never really rated Mount. He's always been very 'meh' to me and I don't understand the signing. There were far better options in my opinion, but its clearly who Hag wanted so he needs to be backed.

The first United player I recall having this problem was Kagawa.
He somehow could never get involved enough. Thankfully Fergie got rid of him quickly. Actually kleberson too tbf.

So Mainoo and Diallo have gotten injured, Mainoo out for months apparently. That’s a really shit outcome from the preseason, because two were the best prospects we had of younger players already on the books making a contribution to the senior team. Could still happen of course, but it’s a big delay and a setback.

Yeah shit for Mainoo that, after Hag basically said he likes him and wants to play him.

I don't know if this video has literally every touch by Onana against Dortmund but it looks like it.
Fuck me. His passing is up there with the best passers in the world. Why is he a goalie?
Probably has shit ball control.

Think I mentioned the only time I've seen him was the CL final vs City, and he was unreal in that.

His distribution, coming out of his box to claim the ball.

Let's hope he can play like that week in week out.

Apparently we still look really short up front like last season.

It's a big ask of a very young striker in Hojlund, who came for a big fee n all, to give us the 20/25 goals a season we need

He'll make the team play better so we'll get more goals from the rest of the team. But he'll still need to bang in a fuckload himself if we're gonna do anything.

Losing again.

The results pre season are a bit worrying.
