    Obertan starts for Reserves - Manchester United Official Web Site

    Can't wait to see Obertan play - pitty there is only Brandy starting up top - very defensive. Also a pitty that neither Eikrem nor King are starting.

    Will be good to see Obertan, but can't wait to see a twin down either flank. :drool: Love those little guys.

    I agree it is a shame about King and Eikrem, though nice to see Matty James back from international duty.

    Second game ever with a Da Silva twin on each wing?

    Looking forward to having a look at Obertan. His crossing ability is gonna be put to the test, that's for sure. It won't be much fun picking out wee Fabien from the flanks.

    Not our strongest team but should be very interesting to see Obertan. I like Ole's style of management he really is ensuring every player is getting a fair chance to impress, thats all the youngsters need. Must be good for morale aswell.

    Its getting near to the stage where I may owe young Gill an apology as he has developed alot in the last 6 months. Never rated him in the academy at all.

    Id say Obertan will get an hour and be replaced by King, hopefully with a view to making the first team bench at the weekend.

    I know we have been pegging Obertan as a winger, but it has been said many times that he can play anywhere in attack.

    I think there is a chance he could be played as the support player from midfield, centrally. Brady on the left. Hewson and Norwood have been played on the right before, haven't they? Also, with Raf bombing down the wing, we don't need a massively offensive winger. We need someone who can play a bit on the right, but also someone who can cover Raf's runs.

    Yeah Obertan may be played as a striker, but he's not much of a goal scorer. So if he is played there, perhaps you shouldnt expect too much.

    We'll play 4-5-1 unless Obertan is up front then?

    Yea IMO it will be a 4-5-1:
    Obertan James, Hewson, Norwood Brady
    Brandy

    or a 4-3-3
    James, Hewson, Norwood
    Obertan Brandy Brady

    or a free role for Obertan in a 4-4-1-1.. as Bitch... I mean Mitch Conor said earlier..

    and yes I know I have just noted down almost all the possibilities..

    They almost always do for the reserves matches which are live on MUTV.

    Is there any reason why Macheda's not involved here?

    He's not injured or on international duty is he?

    Btw - Kieran Lee is playing for Oldham tonight....it really hasn't worked out for him at Oldham and he has hardly had a game at first team level - sadly enough.

    Oh right.

    Didn't realise he was in that squad. Thought he was out of favour with Casiraghi.

    Pity that. I always used to think he had real potential. Shows what I know.

    Well - he did have a lot of potential. I mean not Premier League potential - but he didn't look worse than a few of our players who have done really well in the Championship or League 1 on loan

    Wouldn't say it's very defensive really - Brandy upfront, Obertan and Brady as out and out wingers and Hewson getting up in support is plenty attacking enough for me.
