Man Utd’s kids plus a couple of old boys, namely Ryan Giggs and Edwin van der Sar thumped the MLS All Stars in Houston yesterday.

    cant beleive cleverleys goal is getting the most praise. Gibsons FK is one of the best ive seen for ages. Very Beckham-esgue. In fact a replica of his tecnique. i know it mite sound premature after one good FK but he looks very promising with a dead ball. u can tell a lucky lash from great tekkers. and that was great tekkers

    Actually, they lost on penalties to Everton last year.

    btw how old is gibson? already got a clear bald spot.

    As Jason has pointed out, Everton beat them last year also with some kids on show, though much less convincingly.
