Man United booked their spot in the quarter finals of the Champions League with a two-1 win at home to Marseille. Javier Hernandez scored a brace for United to seal their spot in the Very last 8 even with not having Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic at the heart of their defence. United improvized with Wes Brown and Chris Smalling – their reserve centre backs. Brown had the dubious honor of scoring an own objective for Marseille. It wasn’t the greatest United have played this season – but it was adequate for them to advance.Hernandez has scored sixteen targets for United in his debut period and impressed against Marseille with sharp finishing for his two objectives. He is becoming spoken of as the organic heir to United aim poaching legend Ole Gunnar Solkjaer. Hernandez – also recognized as Chicharito (Small Pea) – is a foremost member of United’s youthful crop of rising stars jointly with the Da Silva brothers, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverly, Federico Macheda, Bebe and Chris Smalling. This bodes extremely effectively for United’s long term as supervisor Alex Ferguson appears to line up replacements for his aging cast of stars like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Erwin Van Der Sar. Gary Neville has by now retired from the very first staff partway by means of this time.
United boss Alex Ferguson is stockpiling an admirable supply of some of the world’s most gifted youthful players who are on the rapidly track to starting to be up coming year’s superstars. They have a wonderfully efficient worldwide scouting method – and more importantly – a superbly nurtured network of contacts and relationships. United have unofficial alliances with other smaller European clubs who perform primarily as farm groups. United also put in location agreements with clubs to have 1st selection on new and exciting young talent – if they have done very good company with them prior to and have a thriving relationship. It all demonstrates the power of networking in the search for the finest youthful talent in the entire world. United and Barcelona are two of the very best at this game and it reflects their place in world football. A definite model for other Massive Six Clubs.Arrive Friday, we will know who United’s opponent will be in the Last 8. Wayne Rooney has been quoted as welcoming the challenge of taking part in Barcelona. If that draw materializes, it will be a fixture worthy of the Champions League Ultimate itself. My hunch is that UEFA will attempt and hold United and Barcelona apart as far as they can. But something can occur in the draw.
