Burnley Reserves 0-1 Manchester United Reserves
Cole 90+1

United’s Reserves wrapped up their 2009/10 league programme in fitting style as a late late goal from Larnell Cole secured a 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

After 90 rainy and goalless minutes in a game that certainly lived up to its billing as an end-of-season dead rubber, some slick football from the Reds and a wonderfully composed finish by Cole saw the champions grab all three points, rounding off the campaign on a high and boosting confidence ahead of Monday’s Premier Reserve League playoff against Aston Villa.

    Hey Nic,
    How has Possebon fared in general since his retrn from braga?
    I’ve seen that he’s been on the losing side more often than not recently. Had great hope for this guy, seemed a technically gifted Carrick when he first came in, but I just wonder if that Pogatetz tackle and his failed loan to braga were steps back in his development.

    How do you mean ‘on the losing side more often than not’? He’s only been on the losing side twice for the reserves, one of those a dead rubber, and lots of other players played in both those games.

    He was pretty poor when he returned from Braga but has looked a lot better in recent games.

      Well, two losses in three is more often than not, isn’t it?
      No, I was just hoping for some improvement from the lad, and if you say he’s been better, that’s great news then. Still think he’s got more in him to be better than Gibson, but maybe attitude and mental strength also plays a part there. Or just plain luck.

    who is this lad Charni Ekangamene?!?!

    my favourite Cammy Stewart seems to have hit a snag wit his progression. mayb a loan move nxt season. boy has got skill speed shoots, and determination want him to get nod in the 1st team.
