Match Reports

United win easy, questions on Evans and Rossi

United won their last two pre-season friendlies quite comfortably, as expected.

You can read the match reports here:

Glentoran 0-3 Manchester United
Dunfermline 0-4 Manchester United

Highlights: Scholesy got a 90-minute runout (though I still think that he’ll be on the bench for Reading and Portsmouth), Nani, Anderson and Hargreaves look to be settling in well and 3 or 4 goals against this quality of opposition isn’t anything to brag about, but the lads got a decent game under their belts and it’ll do them well in preparation for the game on Sunday against Reading.

I do have one question though – where the hell is Johnny Evans? Have I missed something in the last two weeks? His name doesn’t appear on any of the two teamsheets (he could have been an unused sub at Glentoran but I would have thought that he’d get 30 mins at least).

Any ideas?

Oh, and I also read earlier that Fergie said that United have an option to bring Rossi back to Old Trafford at some point – I believe it means that United have a first-option on him should he be leaving Villareal. Thoughts on that?
