Well Done Ole and the Reserves!

Manchester United won the Premier Reserve League North champions last night after title challengers Liverpool lost to Everton.

United were in a great position after beating Liverpool last week thanks to a brilliant goal from Gabriel Obertan.

This is the first time the Reserves have won the league in four years. Solskjaer has won both the Manchester Senior Cup and Lancashire Senior Cup for the past two years. They play the final Manchester Senior Cup group game against City this week for a chance to win it for a third consecutive year.

It is important to remember that this has been achieved with the likes of Tom Cleverley, Danny Drinkwater and Sam Hewson, who are all out on loan.

Sir Alex Ferguson has praised the team and coaches for their success.

“I’d like to say congratulations to Ole and Warren,” said Ferguson. “They’ve done a great job. henever we’ve appointed a new Reserve team coach, I’ve always explained to them what a difficult job it is because it’s subject to what I need. I may pull out three or four players from a training session or I might say, ‘these players can’t play for you on Thursday because they’re on standby for me on Saturday’. So it’s a difficult job.”

    @Paul Parker – Guardiola is too inexperienced but Ole is not? This must be a joke.

    Well done to Ole and the lads, well deserved and beating the dippers to it, makes it even sweeter. I’m particularly glad for Ole, he’s United through and through. He could have left us years ago for first team football, but he knew being at United in whatever capacity, was the best place to be.

    could anyone see ole being involved in the first team in some sort of capacity next season with a view of him gaining some sort of experience for eventually taking the job? i think in the not too distant future you would have quite a few of that 99 treble winning team as the coaching staff and i would welcome it with open arms!
