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 3 Wigan 1 – Bébé bags brilliant brace

Posted by nickogs20 on November 18, 2010


November 18th 2010, 7pm
Moss Lane, Altrincham

Man Utd Wigan
Manchester United Reserves 3-1 Wigan Athletic Reserves
Bébé 4, 57 Sunday 65
W Keane 45 (pen)

 
Two terrific goals from Portuguese winger Bébé helped United’s second string extend their unbeaten run to six games, the Reds running out comfortable 3-1 winners over Wigan Athletic at Moss Lane.

The summer signing from Vitória Guimarães struck early on with a fierce effort into the top corner before producing an even better goal just before the hour mark, his stunning angled volley arrowing and dipping past a helpless Lee Nicholls in the Latics goal. In between Will Keane had stroked home a penalty on the brink of half-time, all of which rendered Ivan Sunday’s header with twenty-five minutes remaining no more than a consolation.

Loan Update: October 2

Posted by nickogs20 on October 2, 2010

As far as senior debuts go, scoring late on to earn your side a point against the league leaders isn’t too shabby – especially if you’re a defender. Step forward Scott Wootton

Reserves: Wigan 1 United 0 – Youthful reserves lose to the Latics

Posted by nickogs20 on April 27, 2010


April 26th 2010, 7pm
Robin Park, Wigan

Wigan Man Utd
Wigan Athletic Reserves 1-0 Manchester United Reserves
Kupisz 63

 
After a previously unbeaten 2010, United’s Reserves followed last week’s cup exit at the hands of Manchester City with a second successive defeat, losing 1-0 to Wigan after being forced to play the second half with just ten men.

While the defeat to City came after a disappointingly lacklustre performance, a slightly makeshift United XI acquitted themselves much more respectably at Robin Park and were unfortunate to end up on the losing side after having the better of the game even after Ritchie de Laet’s red card just before half-time. The Belgian defender received his marching orders after an off the ball clash with Latics forward Tomasz Kupisz, who rubbed salt in the wound when scoring what proved to be the winner just after the hour mark, and despite hitting the woodwork twice, the recently crowned champions couldn’t quite find the goal to preserve their long unbeaten league run.

United 2 Wigan 1: Anderson strikes to kickstart comeback

Manchester United Reserves 2-1 Wigan Athletic Reserves
Anderson 38 Cywka 17 (pen)
Eikrem 48

 
A comeback against Wigan was perhaps the highlight of last season for the Reserves, and while this wasn’t quite as dramatic as that epic 5-4 win, Ole Solskjaer’s side again overturned a deficit against the Latics this evening to maintain their unblemished start to the new campaign.

A clumsy challenge from Cameron Stewart enabled Tomas Cywka to hand the visitors the lead from the penalty spot, but United drew level five minutes before the break thanks to that rarest of things – an Anderson goal from open play. Second-half substitute Joshua King brilliantly set up fellow Norwegian Magnus Eikrem for what proved to be the winner, and only that irksome combination of fine goalkeeping and wayward finishing prevented the Reds from recording a more emphatic margin of victory.

Wigan 4 United 5: Sensational comeback sees Reds edge nine-goal thriller

Posted by nickogs20 on February 18, 2009

Wigan Athletic Man Utd
Wigan Athletic Reserves 4-5 Manchester United Reserves
Cywka 33, 54 Welbeck 11, 69
Kupisz 45 Macheda 62, 67
Holt 58 (pen) Martin 80

 
It’s been a relatively sedate reserve season so far – lots of tight, cagey affairs, a smattering of 0-0 draws and not too many goals. Typical then that the one time the fixture lists conspired to have the first-team in action at the same time, the attention-starved second string were taking part in a quite exhilarating clash with Wigan at Robin Park. Nine goals, eight yellow cards, one red, penalties given and not given… this one had it all, including – ultimately – an astonishing comeback that clinched a first win for the Reds in this fixture since the Latics joined the Premer League North in 2005.

United 1 Wigan 2: Last-minute Latics stun Solskjaer’s second string

Posted by nickogs20 on October 2, 2008

Man Utd Wigan Athletic
Manchester United Reserves 1-2 Wigan Athletic Reserves
Gray 81 Hampson 51
Mahon 90

 
A rare moment of real quality from Wigan’s Irish forward Craig Mahon in the final minute of an otherwise scrappy match condemned Ole Solskjaer to a first defeat as reserves manager just minutes after David Gray’s headed equaliser seemed to have preserved the Norwegian’s unbeaten record. Matty Hampson had earlier given the Latics the lead just after the interval in a match that saw both sides hampered by the near-torrential Northwich rain.
