A question for the Eds if you have time:
I really like Origi and think he has the potential to get better and better. But (as much as I hate to say it) when I watch Marcus Rashford I realise that Origi isn't quite there yet. Origi is 22 whilst Rashford is only 18.
Do you think that Rashford is a special talent or is it just youngsters developing at a different rate?

{Ed002's Note - You cannot compare players because of their ages - it really doesn't make any difference until they are playing regularly and have experience.}

Didn't Origi also get moved around positions a bit more, especially playing as a wide attacker a lot when we loaned him back initially?

Rashford also plays wide to accomodate Zlatan quite often.

Rashford is a very talented player.

Origi does not play the same as MR though. His style of play is about using his physical presence more to hold the ball up, win knockdowns and bring others into play. Whereas MR is about running in behind and stretching defences. DO can do that to an extent but not as well as MR.

Both are good players. Worth noting DO has more goals than MR this season.

Completely different types of players, absolutely no basis for comparison.

Also consider that some of the players that was excellent at 19/ 20 then fade out when they get to 25. while age is a factor, you cannot compare a player because of their age, there are so many more important factor then age, unless your talking about 40 year old players. your Totti's aren't a common thing.

This is like comparing Drogba with Owen.

Feel Anthony Martial is more complete than both but he doesn't get a game at MU.

Not in the slightest, Sami. Martial is more a winger than a striker while Origi is a CF, period hence comparing him to Martial or Rashford (who is originally a winger) makes no sense.

Origi has all the tools to be a great CF. Pace, power, good feet, aerial ability, very physical and good dribbling skills, ALL the things Martial and Rashford lack to play the CF position effectively. As a result, Origi cannot play effectively out wide as he does not possess the instincts or tools of a winger.

Origi and Rashford are two different types of attacker, Rashford is really reliant on his pace and reminds me a lot of Welbeck, I appreciate he is still very young, but the lad does tend to need 3-4 chances to score, give Origi those chances and I'm confident Origi would double Rashford's conversion rate.

Personally think Origi is a huge talent who is going to get better and better, the question is whether that will be with us. I firmly believe that if Origi played for someone like Swansea/ Southampton where he would play week in week out and their game built around getting service to him, he'd be right up there with Lukaku and Kane for the top scorer in the League.

I think Origi has a big decision coming for his future, I don't believe he will ever push Firmino out of the central role of the front 3 so does he stay and be a sub/ cover or does he leave and become a regular for someone else?
