United reserves too good for Bury

Manchester United Reserves 8-0 Bury

It can be safely said that United reserves thumpingly buried the "Bury" team to qualify for the next round of the Manchester Senior Cup with this sparkling victory today.

Reserves team to feature today included some high profile names like Paul Scholes who has only just recovered from a groin injury that has kept him at bay for a month and a half. His last game was the victory over Rangers at OT. O'Shea and Wes Brown had a good game too.

Anders Lindegaard, United's latest signing made his debut in today's game and what a way to be introduced to English football! I'm sure he didn't get many shots to stop but surely must have enjoyed the game standing for 90 minutes.

Team: Lindegaard; Gill (R Brown 46), W Brown, Wootton, O’Shea; King (Vermijl 46), Gibson, Scholes (Norwood 60), Fabio; Brady, Obertan. 
Goals: 1-0 – Josh King, 8 minutes
2-0 – Robbie Brady, 15 minutes
3-0 – Josh King, 24 minutes
4-0 – Gabriel Obertan, 29 minutes
5-0 – Fabio, 31 minutes
6-0 – Gabriel Obertan, 33 minutes
7-0 – Gabriel Obertan, 41 minutes
8-0 – Marnick Vermijl, 52 minutes


Obertan scored a well deserved hat-trick and looks set to feature in the Premier League more often. Josh King, the exciting striker, scored completed an excellent brace. Fabio daSilva (Rafael's brother) joined in by tapping an easy goal. 

An interesting observation, all the goals were scored in the first 52 minutes with 7 of them coming in the first half! Paul Scholes was replaced at the 60th minute. God knows what would have happened had Scholes remained. 20-0 perhaps?
Hope you enjoyed the video!
