Pre-season programme takes shape; date set for LSC Final

Posted by nickogs20 on June 16, 2009

2008/09 is done and dusted but, as is evermore the case in football these days, the start of the next campaign will soon be upon us, kicking off with the first pre-season fixtures in little over a month. While the first team will be touring Asia, taking part in the inaugural Audi Cup in Munich and entertaining Valencia at Old Trafford, the reserves and academy have their own itinerary fast taking shape.

Rochdale 1 United 4: Fantastic Fábio fires Reds into LSC semis

Reidy 17 Fábio 26, 41, 48, missed pen 21
Welbeck 58

United’s reserve side roared into the semi-finals of the Lancashire Senior Cup this afternoon after resoundingly beating Rochdale 4-1 at Spotland. The defending champions took a while to find their feet and fell behind early on to a Joe Reidy header, but that goal only served to spark the Reds into life as Fábio da Silva well and truly took centre-stage. When the little Brazilian left-back missed a penalty he had won shortly after the home side’s opener, he could have been forgiven for letting his head drop…. instead, he went and scored a hattrick, two predatory finishes from close range book-ending a sublime volley after some breathtaking build-up play. When Danny Welbeck made it four before the hour mark it looked like Ole Solskjaer’s side could rack up a cricket score, only some fine goalkeeping and wasteful finishing keeping the scoreline vaguely respectable for the home team as United booked a semi-final date with Preston North End.

Posted by nickogs20 on June 7, 2008

For most United fans, all the focus now and over the next couple of months will understandably be on players coming in (or potentially coming in), but spare a thought for those leaving Old Trafford – in particular those leaving to an uncertain future. Several players are set to be released or not have their contracts renewed this summer, and while United do everything they can to ensure these players find another club, there are essentially only so many professional contracts up for grabs each year and there are an awful lots of players competing for them.
