Anderson Excels For The Reserves

Anderson, apparently, has not given up. It seems he regarded being left out of the squad that achieved a historic and stunning win at Milan as a challenge rather than an insult: he seemed determined to put up a good show for the Reserves tonight.

Of course a fully focused and committed Anderson should be far too good for the Reserve league and so it proved: he was the outstanding player for the 60 minutes he spent on the pitch, at the heart of all of United's best attacking moves. His neat pass brought about the opening goal, coolly put away by Mame Biram Diouf who enjoyed a pleasant evening and was also taken off after 60 minutes, presumably to preserve him for the Everton game on Saturday.

Will Anderson be involved there? Not clear yet but with Giggs injured and Carrick suspended for the return leg against Milan we need to bring him back sooner rather than later because we simply won't have enough midfielders for the second leg and that would be awfully dangerous even in the enviable position of being 3-2 up after the away leg. He has to be brought back into the team over the next three weeks so that he'll be in good enough shape by March 10.

By the way, the Reserves won 2-0, the second goal coming courtesy of Cameron Stewart after good work by the impressive Gabriel Obertan. Rodrigo Possebon was back in action after his unsuccessful loan stint at Braga and he was good enough though looked a little bit overweight - or is he more muscular these days and that deceived my eyes? Maybe. Fabio got injured, again. Depressing.

Poor fabio. He really is unlucky. For years he has been labelled the more talented twin but since he's been at united injuries and the worlds best left back have robbed him of any consistent chance to shine. Its got to be tough seeing your chances at a big club slipping, but when you have a twin who is the same as you in every aspect including talent, it must be even tougher. Its probably like having a Sliding Doors experience.

Anderson should on the bench at least for the Everton game. I hope Fabio is not turning into another serial crock!

Now that giggsy is injured,his form will be a lot more important for us as we have a lot of important games coming up.Hopefully he will take this as a challenge and rise to the occasion.

I have and always have had alot more faith in Anderson than I do in Nani and i really do believe he will prove his worth sooner rather than later.

Cameron Stewart looked good!

playing well for the reserves is a lot different than playing well for the first team. Its a real shame what happened to anderson, he went from being the next ronaldinho to being a fringe player. I think its partially because the coaching staff don't know how to best utilise his very obvious talents. Also what happened to Possebon, I had really high hopes for him.

Yesterday I thing we could have done with Anderson - Fletch and Carrick looked tired and well below norm - we totally deserved to fet beaten by an Everton team that were hungry for it!
