International roundup (11/12 August): Tošić at the double; Brandy/Cleverley stake claims for U20 World Cup; trio make U21 debuts

Posted by nickogs20 on August 14, 2009

The much-maligned early season international fixtures may frustrate and worry club managers and fans alike, but they do offer a valuable opportunity for a number of young players across the continent and the globe to take the first steps towards establishing themselves in various age-group national teams for the long season ahead. World Cups at senior and youth level, the annual European finals at U19 and U17 level, another round of Euro U21 qualification – it all starts again here, and unsurprisingly there was plenty of United involvement over the past couple of days.

Poll Reminder

Posted by nickogs20 on June 3, 2009

Just a quick nudge to anyone who hasn’t voted in either of our ongoing polls, as we seek your views ahead of United Youth’s end of season awards. We covered the Academy Player of the Year poll in an article last week, and loads of you have voted – we’ll be taking that one down in the course of the next day or so, so anyone who hasn’t should do so pronto. In addition, we’ve also got a poll running over in the right-hand sidebar for the Reserve Player of the Year – same drill, we want to know who you think has been the outstanding performer for Ole Solskjaer’s reserve side in 2008/09, and to help, we’ve listed 7 who we think are deserving of your attentions:

James Chester
The official Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year this season, James captained the side in the first half of the campaign and had a productive loan spell at Peterborough before injury cut short his season.

Tom Cleverley
A nominee for the Denzil Haroun award, Tom started the season in terrific goalscoring form for the Reds before translating that into an impressive loan spell at League One champions Leicester City.

Corry Evans
Captain after Chester’s loan departure, the 18 year-old Ulsterman was a rock at the heart of defence despite being a midfielder by trade, and has forced his way into the full Northern Ireland squad.

Fábio da Silva
Injury and the presence of Patrice Evra has prevented Fábio from making the same impact at first team level as his twin, but anyone who’s seen him for the reserves this season will know he’s capable.

Kiko Macheda
Top-scorer with 10 goals in 18 games, including a sensational hattrick against Newcastle at St James’ Park. We all know what happened in the ensuing fortnight…

Lee Martin
Returned from a disappointing loan spell at Forest with his tail between his legs back in January but has been a revelation for the second string since then in an unfamiliar central role.

Rodrigo Possebon
The Brazilian-turned-Italian’s pre/early-season form under OGS saw him force his way into the first-team picture, although his much-publicised injury against Boro in the Carling Cup set him back significantly.

You don’t have to vote for one of those if someone else has caught your eye however – the ‘Other’ box is there for you to identify another player, as some have done already with the likes of Matt James and Danny Welbeck. We’ll keep this poll running for another couple of days, and we should have another one up alongside it very soon – the all-important Overall Young Player of the Year award, where those who have caught the eye in academy and reserve action will battle it out with first-team starlets like Jonny Evans and Rafael da Silva for recognition as the most impressive young player at the club this past season.

Thanks to all those who have voted so far.

Blue Stars 2009: An overview

Posted by nickogs20 on May 22, 2009

With the official Blue Stars tournament website lacking somewhat in terms of the accuracy of its match stats (scorers, lineups etc) and the detail of its match reports, we’re delighted to be able to bring you an in-depth and accurate report on United’s two days in Zurich from someone who was there and saw the action unfold.

Awards Night

Posted by nickogs20 on May 17, 2009

With everyone associated with Manchester United still buzzing after yesterday’s title celebrations, attention tonight turns towards recognising and rewarding those responsible for that terrific achievement and everything the club has accomplished (thus far…) this season. Much of the focus will naturally be on who will win the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year Award, as well as the Players’ Player and Goal of the Season awards, but of particular interest to contributors and readers of this site will of course be the Reserve Player and Young Player winners.
