Every now an again we witness performances, individual and team efforts, that excite us in some ways towards the future.
Tuesday evening was no different. While United might have had to work a little harder than expected against a hard working Wolves outfit, the young boys pulled of an excellent victory to progress further as they look to defend the Carling Cup.
There were a couple of interesting selections that performed beyond satisfactory on the night, many of whom we have seen in the first team already, others whom are breaking in, slowly but surely.
All in all, these players will have huge roles to play as the season moves along, and through the management of Sir Alex we have seen over the years how young players become vital to the team and grow into world class players.
Already the results of hard work, determination and great consistency within the youth system, and reserves by the backroom staff and players, seem to be working off.
In this slide presentation we take a brief glance at some of those players who could turn out to be an added bonus to the squad, allowing more room for rotation and creating more depth and strength in the team.
With some of the bigger names out with injury, the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Owen and Hargreaves, many of the younger players are gaining experience and could learn more as the season goes into the business phase, with tough opposition and more games coming up.
