With the Class of  ’92 released this week, it’s been a time for many Reds feeling sentimental and proud of United’s superb youth policy that culminated in the backbone of the treble winning side just over 14 years ago. While the names of Giggs, Beckham, Butt, Scholes and the Neville’s may be part of United folklore there’s hundreds of youngsters who didn’t make the grade for one reason or another.

One such player who’s talent was arguably good enough to make him an Old Trafford regular is Ravel Morrison. The Mancunian could’ve been the next big thing to graduate from the academy at United but instead ended up being released as Sir Alex Ferguson decided he couldn’t handle the constant drama that seemed to follow Morrison around. Arrests, charges, more arrests, a crew of cronies and an attitude that wouldn’t look out of place in borstal, Morrison didn’t exactly fit the requirements of someone who should be representing Manchester United and it was something of a shame, but not a surprise when the gifted youngster was shown the door.

Morrison ran half the length of the pitch at the end of his current club West Ham United’s loss to lowly Crystal Palace, to get involved in a spat with Joel Ward. Morrison ended up being booked for pushing Ward in the face and was lucky not to receive a red card and a ban. The former United youngster has already had an on pitch altercation with our very own Wilfried Zaha while playing for the England under 21s, it seems like during his time at Old Trafford, he simply doesn’t learn.

Can any of us really see him getting away with this playing for United?

    You can’t be serious? I remember Scholes swinging a punch straight at Alonso’s face. And how often does Rooney kick players? The reason Morrison isn’t playing for United is the same reason that Pogba isn’t – Ferguson’s ego just couldn’t handle player power, especially when it was coming from teenagers. A season longer and you’d have probably lost Januzaj too.

      Your ignorance isnt suprising, but please if you’re going to have an opinion, do your research. You cant deny facts.

    Of course he’d get away with it at Manu. Look at Rooney every week. The red shirt is a free pass to do what you like.

And let Moyes put his Trust Players He has for them to give him what He want and we Fans will be Happy. THANK YOU ALL

    Selling Morrison for next to nothing was a bad mistake. We should have loaned him out to a Championship side, like West Ham did, to let someone have a go at sorting him out. This season we could have loaned him out to a lower level Premier League team, like West Ham, for example. Then if we still didn’t want him we could have sold him for £10m or so.

    We handled the whole thing very badly. And the Pogba situation too. And not playing Zaha. We are supposed to be a club that develops young talent but we are hardly doing this at all. If Januzaj doesn’t play tonight I’ll start getting worried for him too. I can’t believe Young was preferred to him on the bench against Spurs.

    I grew up in roy keanes area in cork,,and his nick name was “do ya know who I`am like” when he`d come home from forrest he`d kick off in every bar he went to.So we were all young and silly once.Ravel is a great talent and I hope he goes on to have a great career and prove united wrong.I also think he will return one day as big sam and fergie are thick as thieves.And cantona was also a thug on the pitch when his demons took give ravel a chance.

    He needed to get out of Manchester, bad influences and what not, Fegie did the right thing for club and player. I see no reason he couldn’t return. These “he pushed them” stories are being blown way out of proportion. I’ve seen Kean, Scholes and Rooney do worse regularly throughout their careers. What Rav did was rash and a little naive but jumping on the “he’s a horrible man” ban wagon is false.
