Video: Diouf Scores Again for the Reserves


On the day we went to the Emirates to spank Arsenal the reserves set out to Norway to play a Norwegian first division side, Stabaek. The side was packed with summer signings like Diouf and Obertan as well as loan returnee, Rodrigo Possebon.

United reserves ran out comfortable winners — 3-0 the final score — with Mame Biram Diouf netting two of them.

Here are brief highlights of the match as well as goals (towards the end of the video)

This was our lineup: United reserve side for game vs Stabaek: Amos, Gray, Brown, Dudgeon, Gill, Obertan, Evans, Norwood, James, Brandy, Diouf. [via @bauck on twitter]



  1. @Scotjimland: Obertan was his usual self. He fails at the simple things, but he has those fantastic moments which look so difficult. I kept asking myself, how can you dribble past 3 players in one movement for so to miss on a simple 3 yards pass which would have set up Diouf for a hat-trick… He is so frustrating, it’s incredible!

    Diouf was amazing, he was a powerhouse which StabΓ¦k couldn’t conatain. Marvellous performance by the African, I really gotta say I am starting to fall in love with him. πŸ˜› Not a bad thing though…

    Possebon was pure shite, he looked like a Berbatov without the touch and brain. Which means, he was just terrible. Didn’t notice he had come on before 15 minutes after he came on had gone. Pure shit, can see hwy Braga told him to piss off.

    Amos really impressed me. For such a young goalie, he has a presence and a physical side I’ve rarely seen. Made two absolutely incredible saves, was dominant in the air and maraued his defence to maximum effect. I kept thinking “He already looks better than Foster!” during the whole game

    Watching Reece Brown play was like watching his brother. They run the same way, make the same decisions at times(as for clearing and tackling) and they just move so… they are just incredibly similar, hadn’t Reece been so “childy” I would’ve been sure I was watching Wesley play.

    The rest were good, Dudegeon impressed me but I didn’t notice any of the midfielders in particular… They were all alright, but nobody stood out. And Brandy, take some growth hormones man!!! You know, when the players were walking out on to the pitch Brandy was standing net to the mascot. The mascot seemed taller to be honest. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† He is very quick though…

  2. Who else is gonna buy the new Pokemon game which is released in March? πŸ˜€ I know I am, gonna be awesome! When I’m on the bus, on my way to school, it’ll be much better playing a Nintendo DS game rather than listning to an old man snore in my face, with me looking down on the floor or out of the window. πŸ™„ πŸ˜† Seriously, can’t wait for it… πŸ˜€

  3. @EduardoDaVinci4: Black cats nil Potters nil Boring and dreary.Sunderland fans are getting restless a lot of booing at the end of the game.Mr Bruce seemed pretty relaxed about it though.1 real bad challenge in the game, well realy an assualt, Referee as seems normal now other than for US just bottled the sending off.That says a lot about the game. snooze fest.Up wards and onwards looking for the right result tommorow night, Hull v Chelschavs.Cmon the Hull.

  4. @Man Utd Jaluo: Lets hope he makes it big and not endup being of the category as most of them do.. “not good enough for United”, hope he does well, atleast he is very confident and strong… πŸ˜‰

  5. I had taken some precious time off but i have some points to share.
    1-Rooney has got to be the hottest striker in Europe this season.I have always been a critic of his, as a the number one striker of Europe’s and England’s champions not being able to score as one but now that he has finally done it,i dont care how much he misses,he is scoring and most importantly consistently.
    2- Fergie makes mistakes too.When he put Nani in the doghouse,he made everyone to believe that he was a flop and some fans started questioning whether there would be a blind team to give us half of what we paid for him.After a couple of boring,predictable wing play,he brings him in,and the rest as they say is history.That trick for the first goal ,not even the worlds best can do it as easy.I am afraid the same might happen with Anderson.
    A question to you all,should we heap praise on Phelan? He takes the blame when we lose,should he get the credit when we win?

  6. @donibrasco: I won’t bother heaping praise on Phelan. I don’t criticise him when we lose,I criticise him generally. It’s not about winning or losing. This is United. It should not be just about results.We win,we are satisfied. We lose we are disappointed. That’s not how I view things. We win 1 nil playing like a League 2 outfit and I’ll be raging. We lose 2-1 playing like football geniuses I’m overjoyed. I was satisfied with our performance at the Bridge even though we lost.

  7. Anyone know what happened to Anderson?
    It appears that his loan deal fell through? Why?

  8. Chelsea drew 1 all with Hull in the league. Only 1 point ahead of us on equal games. We play Portsmouth at OT on Saturday, and they Arsenal on Sunday.

  9. @despicable: The season is easier now because the Chelsea dinosaurs are already showing fatigue and arsenal are already getting exposed.what we need is keeping the momentum and we shall win the league again.

  10. @despicable: We play Portsmouth on Saturday at home, Villa in the league away, Milan first leg away and then Everton away and then West Ham at home then the Cup final mate.

  11. Nani deserves the raise heaped on him and he has become a breath of fresh air to the side, I just hope this is not a flash in the pan and he really kicks on because over the past three games my heart races everytime he gets the ball you believe something exciting is going to happen and long may it continue.

  12. Fergie also hopes Hargo will be in the squad to face Meeelan I really hope so but will believe it when I see it!!

  13. @Stephen: I just hope it’s not to the detriment of Valencia, as he has been brilliant all season out left. Here’s hoping Valencia can play right wing better than Nani could!

  14. Fred Done (Owner of the ‘Bet Fred’ bookies and massive United fan) has outed him self as one of FIFTY ‘Red Knights’ involved in the takeover talks-a-brewing.

    Fifty of ’em!

    Fifty business brains, all of them die hard United supporters in it for the love. It’d be an amazing thing if it we’re to happen.

  15. I have a feeling Fergie relishes the idea of getting Hargreaves to do a number on Beckham.

    Stephen Im also holding my breath on Nani. He has always had the ability. Even in the first season at the club he was producing world class performances. But when this hot streak of form ends, he could well revert back to the sort of inconsistent performances that got him dropped. Because when Nani plays well, he is Man of the Match. When Nani plays badly, he is the worst player on the pitch.
