United Stumble in Daylight Robbery

Tag: Match Reports @ 5:20 am

“How did Manchester United not win this game?” is the question on everyone’s lips after an amazing 1-1 draw at Old Trafford between the Red Devils and the Geordies from Tyneside. United created tons of chances, with everything from a great goalkeeper and posts, to miraculous goal-line clearances keeping them at bay. It must be frustrating for United to see their two best performances in a while end in draws, after strangling out poor 1-0 wins for many games running now.

As United-Newcastle games go it was a fairly entertaining game as both sides played well, and all players performed their duties admirably well. But what did the separate teams go out to do exactly?

The Academy: United 1-2 Liverpool

Tag: Academy @ 1:27 am

In a wind and rain affected 90 minutes at Carrington today, Liverpool stole the points in the first and last minutes to grab a second win in just six weeks over United’s improving youngsters.

The minutes in between saw United ride their luck and spurn opportunities in equal measure.

Jack Dunn was Liverpool’s match-winner with two well taken finishes at crucial times. Sam Byrne finally broke his duck when he got on the end of a superb move that will almost certainly be a candidate for goal of the month, possibly even goal of the season.

The Academy: United v Liverpool – Preview

Tag: Academy @ 11:38 pm

United’s U18s are in action again tomorrow as they take on Liverpool in the Premier Academy League.

It’s been six weeks since the reverse fixture saw Adam Morgan and Matty Regan grab the goals in a 2-1 win for Liverpool. Ex-Liverpool academy goalkeeper Liam Jacob made a howler that gifted Regan a simple header that ultimately sealed United’s fate that day. He and the lads were unlucky not to get anything out of that game but United have since gone unbeaten and will hope to avenge that defeat.
