Cleverley’s U21 bow headlines long list of international callups

Posted by nickogs20 on September 3, 2009

As ever during international breaks, the main focus of fans and media is on the many United first-teamers away representing their countries in the next week or so (an alarming 16 away with senior national sides this time around), but there’s an equally lengthy list of young players in action in various age groups and competitions to keep track of. Here’s a quick rundown on who, where and when…

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.
