United’s reserves made it two wins from two in this year’s Manchester Senior Cup with a hard-fought win over Oldham Athletic.

While the performance left something to be desired, there was lots to be pleased about in the form of fine goals from Nicky Ajose and Federico Macheda, yet another comeback victory and important stepping stones on the road back to full fitness for Anderson, Wes Brown and, most notably, Rio Ferdinand, who completed 45 minutes on his comeback from the knee injury that ruled him out of the World Cup.

Catching up with Joshua King

Posted by nickogs20 on June 28, 2010

While the World Cup is dominating the headlines and club news is thin on the ground, the start of pre-season training is nearly upon us and we’ve been alerted to an interview that promising United striker Joshua King has given back in his native Norway ahead of his return to Manchester. Joshua talks about his time with the Reds so far, his first-team debut last season, how he’s been spending his summer and plenty more.

Reserves: United 2 Everton 0 – Anderson-inspired Reds stroll to victory

Manchester United Reserves 2-0 Everton Reserves

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.

United 2 Wigan 1: Anderson strikes to kickstart comeback

A comeback against Wigan was perhaps the highlight of last season for the Reserves, and while this wasn’t quite as dramatic as that epic 5-4 win, Ole Solskjaer’s side again overturned a deficit against the Latics this evening to maintain their unblemished start to the new campaign.

A clumsy challenge from Cameron Stewart enabled Tomas Cywka to hand the visitors the lead from the penalty spot, but United drew level five minutes before the break thanks to that rarest of things – an Anderson goal from open play. Second-half substitute Joshua King brilliantly set up fellow Norwegian Magnus Eikrem for what proved to be the winner, and only that irksome combination of fine goalkeeping and wayward finishing prevented the Reds from recording a more emphatic margin of victory.

Reds miss out on Ramsey

Posted by nickogs20 on June 11, 2008

Cardiff City’s 17 year old wonderkid Aaron Ramsey has turned down offers from United and Everton in favour of a move to Arsenal, with a £5m deal expected to go through in the next few days. Ramsey had been widely expected to move to Manchester, and losing out on his signature will be a bitter blow for Sir Alex Ferguson (not to mention an embarrassment to the club after an article on manutd.com last Monday appeared to practically announce the capture of the Welsh youngster). The instinctive reaction of most fans in this situation, when a transfer target opts to sign for a rival club, is to feign indifference (“His loss, player x in the reserves is a better prospect anyway”) or blame financial motives, but it’s worth considering just why Ramsey, supposedly a lifelong United fan, might have turned us down.
