We hear a lot about the Busby Babes and, of course, we all remember the Hansen "You win nothing with kids" gaff (which has become "You win nothing with Liverpool" since!), but people should start noting just how young this current Man Utd team is. The side that took to the field and hammered Tottenham included De Gea, Jones, Evans, Smalling, Cleverley and Welbeck. Hernandez, who looks like he should still be at school, came on as a sub and Fabio was also on the bench.
The likes of Rooney, Evra and Nani are old men in this team in their mid twenties, whilst Anderson is still only 23. No wonder Giggs was playing away, he was probably just trying to show the kids that he could still get it up!
There was plenty of experience available on the bench, of course, and Ferdinand and Vidic will walk back into the team when fit, but Ferguson is building a side that could play together for the next 7 years - by which time he could well be dead. Wenger take note, you can have the best of both worlds, a young team that wins!
