Manchester United Reserves 2-0 Everton Reserves

Stewart 45+2

After a fortnight of frozen pitches and fixture frustration, United’s reserves returned to action with a convincing win over a youthful Everton second string at Moss Lane.

Bolstered by the relative experience of Anderson, Mame Biram Diouf, Gabriel Obertan, Ben Foster and Fábio da Silva, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side always looked too strong for a committed but outclassed Toffees outfit and dominated the ninety minutes, with perhaps the only surprise being that the scoring was limited to just a three minute period at the end of the first half. A fine performance from Iain Turner in the visitors’ goal was the primary reason for this, but the young Scot was powerless to keep out Diouf’s fine strike after an Anderson-led counter or Cameron Stewart’s precise finish from the edge of the area.

    Decent win but have to say the reserve league must be a tougher league than people think if we cant win by more than 2 goals. Maybe the reserve teams are more organised and we can’t break them down at times.

    Midfield area is packed with talent. Perhaps too much?

    Gibson and Anderson are over the bridge clearly.

    Some are on the bridge-path like Possebon, Cleverley and James. Then you have Corry, Eikrem, Norwood and Drinkwater who are fighting to pay the toll then we have Hewson who has failed to progress and is destined to leave. And… And… haha. We have Pogba and Tunnicliffe catching them all up, but there’s no rush for them 2.

    I seriously doubt wether all of them will get a decent chance despite having good potential. We may find that in 5 years time most of them playing in the premiership with good values over their heads. Understand though that the academy isn’t just about finding that star player but also to give youngsters a chance in making a good career for themselves with united or not.

    But to sum up my points, I just have a feeling we may let one go who eventually ends up being a star.

  2. anderson can’t even score in the reserves. not much hope.
