Loan Roundup: December 26

Posted by nickogs20 on December 27, 2010

Boxing Day football is one the great traditions of the English game but with the continued wintry weather rendering this year’s slate of fixtures something of a damp (or icy) squib, only three of United’s loanees had the chance to run off the turkey and trimmings this weekend…

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

Posted by nickogs20 on February 19, 2010


February 18th 2009, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Everton
Manchester United Reserves 2-0 Everton Reserves
Diouf 44
Stewart 45+2

 
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.

Reserves: United 1 Bolton 0 – Reds see off familiar foe

Posted by nickogs20 on January 29, 2010


Januuary 28th 2009, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Bolton
Manchester United Reserves 1-0 Bolton Wanderers Reserves
Gray 44

 
If familiarity really does breed contempt, these two sides are going to be absolutely sick of each other by the end of the season. United’s second string took on their Bolton Wanderers counterparts for the fourth (and not necessarily final) time this term and successfully avenged December’s penalty shootout defeat to the Trotters with a 1-0 win at Moss Lane.

In a game that never got close to matching the drama, excitement and goal tally of that last meeting, it took a goal from the unlikely figure of David Gray on the brink of half-time to break the deadlock and decide a contest that was marred by the incessant Manchester rain. The Reds could and should have secured a more comfortable margin of victory, but just the one goal was ultimately enough to take the three points and leapfrog Liverpool at the top of the Premier Reserve League North.

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.
