    Fraizer Campbell again!!

    Celebrated his first England under 21 call up in style with a fine brace for Hull in their 3-1 victory. That's 11 goals for the lad this season now, and he really is looking the part.

    • Heaton has also been called up to the under-21s. Which is perhaps an indication of how thin on the ground good English goalkeepers are. I`m not knocking the lad cause he is a good goalkeeper but playing for utd reserves isn`t usually the route to playing for England even at under-21 level. Campbell on the other hand is playing regular first team football for a championship side and doing extremely well. Only time will show whether he is good enough for to play fo utd.

    • Some of his goals have been quality matt too. I really hope he is recalled for next season and given a chance. He was every bit as good as Rossi for me in the reserves, and seems to have gone on to the next level. He's lightening quick, his strength was all I questioned, but if he can handle the championship....

    • He has done well over here but I still aint been to see him play, might have to before the season is out. See what united will be getting next season :)

      • I've seen some of his reserve matches and other competitions he's played in. His only weakness is physical development - height and strength, but those are things he can work on (well, strength is). But his speed, vision, finishing ability are all great for such a young player. He could be just the kind of player to lead the line ahead of a deep-sitting striker like Rooney or Tevez in the future.
