Young Reds Do United Proud

Nights like these make you proud to be a United fan. Tonight epitomised what our club is about; giving the youngsters a chance. Our back four consisted of Rafael, Scott Wootton, Michael Keane and Alexander Buttner, with the inexperienced centre-halves facing up against some of the Premier League’s stellar names in Juan Mata and Eden Hazard.

It says it all with the substitutions both sides made, we brought on Nick Powell, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Federico Macheda, whereas Chelsea brought on Eden Hazard, Oscar and Ramires; Over £60million worth of talent.

The biggest positive was Michael Keane, the 19-year old handled Sturridge extremely well for the most-part, I know we conceded 5 goals but the maturity he shown tonight was great to watch.

Nick Powell certainly looks at home in a United shirt, his passing was excellent and he was as cool as you like under pressure. Another positive came in the form of Anderson, why can’t he play like that every game? He bossed the midfield and finished up with three superb assists, he will definitely be in Sir Alex’s mind over the coming weeks.

Javier Hernandez continued his excellent scoring record against Chelsea, he made it 6 goals in 9 games against the London club, he must be close to forcing his way into the starting XI for the league games.

Our Youth Cup winners certainly gave the European Champions a difficult game tonight, our fans were brilliant tonight as well, U-N-I-T-E-D United are the team for me!

  1. Lmfao, nice words for a loser. Was using the youth squad the excuse for their early cl exit to a weak team last year? United are old and the youth looks like shit

    • Haha, Chelsea struggled to beat a united team of basically reserve players. And they would have lost had Nani not made a mess at the death. Hazard Mata and Oscar, Ramirez, Cahill, Luis. Must be over 100 million worth there? Does it feel good knowing you beat a reserve squad in a Mickey Mouse cup with basically a full strength team? 3rd is the best you can hope for this season. And Yeah, good luck with that Financial Fair Play thing.
