Look who’s coming north!!


Tomorrow Ross County F.C. will take on “Manchester United” at Victoria Park in Dingwall.  I put those quotes in because, well, look at the opposition’s roster:

  • Sam Johnstone (First Team/U21)
  • Joel Castro Pereira (Academy)
  • Liam Grimshaw (Academy)
  • Tom Thorpe (U21)
  • Scott Wootton (First Team/U21)
  • Marnick Vermijl (U21)
  • Larnell Cole (U21)
  • Ryan Tunnicliffe (U21)
  • Andreas Pereira (Academy)
  • Charni Ekangamene (U21)
  • Ben Pearson (Academy)
  • Davide Petrucci (U21)
  • James Wilson (Academy)
  • Tom Lawrence (U21)
  • Bebe (First Team)
  • Federico Macheda (First Team)
  • Jack Barmby (Academy)

Look, everyone- including me- knew that the line-up wasn’t going to feature names like “Giggs,” “Chicharito” or “Rooney,” but really?  They couldn’t send Anders Lindegaard, Chris Smalling, or even Ben Amos?

Instead, the “biggest” players making the trip north are Federico Macheda (19 appearances) and…and that’s it, actually.  No other player on this list has made more than 2 senior appearances for Manchester United.

Oh well, there’s still every chance this match will be a $ucce$$!!
