Maybe he is not that bad

In early September, OTWT wrote about Manchester United signing of Portuguese forward Bebe and how everyone needed to calm down about trashing the kid.

Bebe made Bébé made his debut for Manchester United as he replaced Park Ji Sung in the 74th minute of a 5–2 away victory over Scunthorpe in the League Cup. On 2 October 2010, he made his EPL debut, replacing Anderson in the 80th minute in their 0–0 draw against Sunderland. His first start came against Wolves in the Fourth Round of the League Cup on 26 October where he scored his first goal in the process, netting United's first of a 3–2 home win.
The Daily Mail praised Bebe performance during his first career start against Wolves on Tuesday night:

""Perhaps the only player in the United dressing room who may have felt a shred of envy when Hernandez followed up his two goals at Stoke with the winner here was the Portuguese starlet Bebe.
"Starting his first game at Old Trafford since his £7.4million summer move from Guimaraes, Bebe crowned a performance of promise with a goal in the 56th minute. By full-time it had all but been forgotten.
"He doesn’t have the same advantage as Hernandez as he doesn’t speak the language,’ added Ferguson. "But he is having his lessons twice a week and he will be fine. I was pleased with him.,'' according to the Daily Mail. 

For his performance, Bebe graded out at an 8 of 10 rating and was named Man of the Match. I know its just Wolves in the Carling Cup, but you have to start somewhere and a performance like that is enough to show everyone the talent that the kids has and why he is a player to watch in the future.
