Loan Update: October 5

Posted by nickogs20 on October 6, 2010

International break it may be, but with eight United youngsters on loan in Leagues One and Two, there’s still something for Reds to keep an eye on at club level over the next fortnight – last night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy action for starters, which saw involvement for five of our loanees on what turned out to be quite a dramatic evening.

Liverpool 1 United 0: Reds disappoint as 10-man Pool take deserved win

Posted by nickogs20 on September 17, 2009


September 17th 2009, 7.30pm
Prenton Park, Birkenhead

Liverpool Man Utd
Liverpool Reserves 1-0 Manchester United Reserves
N’gog 5

 
United’s unbeaten start to the season was ended in frustrating fashion at Prenton Park this evening, a Liverpool side reduced to ten men just after the half-hour mark managing to hang onto a 1-0 lead handed to them by David N’gog inside the first five minutes.

Sloppy defending allowed N’gog to pounce on a long ball and wrong-foot Ron-Robert Zieler in the United goal, and a strong Reds second-string struggled to get a foothold in the match as Liverpool controlled the first half-hour. A dubious red card for Damian Plessis then threatened to turn the game on its head, but while Ole Solskjaer’s side dominated possession thereafter and eventually fashioned several decent chances, an equaliser wasn’t to be forthcoming and a first reserve league defeat since March couldn’t be avoided.

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.

And the winners are…

Posted by nickogs20 on May 18, 2009

Nemanja Vidic may have stolen all the headlines after scooping the Players’ Player of the Year and Sir Matt Busby Fans’ Player of the Year gongs at last night’s Manchester United Player Awards for 2009, but he wasn’t the only one taking home some silverware. As well as Cristiano Ronaldo recieving a second successive Goal of the Season award, there was recognition for two of the club’s most promising youngsters – James Chester and Federico Macheda being named (respectively) as the Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year and the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year.
