Youth Team/Cup

Recommended Posts

My mate Gordon works for BT and is up there. He is a bluenose (Blue not Sky Blue).  He will have been fuming it went to penalties meaning he gets home later and he will be even more fuming that he has just had to watch the young Reds win hahaha

Spare a thought for the City players and the BT commentary team.

 

Its been a difficult night.

I almost felt a twinge of sympathy, watching those City players crying. Almost. Then I realised it was a fart slowly squeezing out.

Well done the lads to work their way back in the game. Five well taken penalties, good display of character that from those lads.

 

Thought Cain looked decent in midfield for us, and Sharif improved as the game went on.

 

But my prediction, based on this game, is that the right back Neco Williams looks most likely to make it at Premier League level. Looked fairly quick, quite cool under pressure, and with a good range of passing. Clearly better going forward than defending at this stage of his career. But defending should be easier to coach probably, and anyway the modern fullback plays a vital role in attack.

When that City lad missed his pen you could see Pep get a small notebook out and strike his name through with a pencil.

 

He’ll definitely be found floating face-down in the Manchester canal tomorrow, the latest victim of The Pusher....

I'm currently watching it having recorded it, 7 minutes into extra time, 11 minutes left on the recording... 

 

Glad to heart we won though! 

 

We weren't even close to out best, our attack were so isolated, but were better after the first half at least

Great result for the youngsters. In recent years, our teams have been dominated by the likes of Chelsea and City at this level so too few of our players know what it's like to win a trophy. It's important to get back a trophy-winning ethos at the club at all levels. The last time we won the Youth Cup was also against City, and Daniel Sturridge was in the City side.

Give city the cup and never speak of this again.

 

City's players would have been exactly the same.

 

Fuckin' millennials.

The standard of penalties was ridiculous.

 

My boy Neco Williams got a bit fortunate with his but the other four were right in the corner, three of them right in the top bin.

 

Glatzel looked terrified, but then he produces a pen like that. Balls of steel.
