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.

German heritage.

Was just like Andy Moller in Euro 96.

Blackburn won 2-1, deservedly.

Brewster got 70 minutes but next-to-no service. We actually looked better after he went off, Lewis moved into midfield from left back and Camacho went up front. Our goal (Johnston) came from a goalmouth scramble after a set piece.

Liverpool U18s followed up their FA Youth Cup final win by overcoming Manchester City again with a 1-0 league victory on Tuesday.

Jack Bearne struck early on at the Etihad Campus to ensure the young Reds overcame the Blues for the second time in the space of five days. 

Victory means Barry Lewtas’ team sit three points adrift of U18 Premier League North leaders Derby County - who completed their season by beating Wolves 6-0 at the weekend - ahead of their last game of the campaign against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

However, the young Rams’ superior goal difference makes a turnaround at the top unlikely, with Liverpool already guaranteed to finish second in the division.

The visitors - playing with three central defenders and Neco Williams and Yasser Larouci as wing-backs - started on the front foot and City goalkeeper Cieran Slicker had already made two saves to deny Luis Longstaff and Larouci before Bearne’s 12th-minute opener.

Bobby Duncan set up the forward with a fine a through-ball, and he subsequently rounded Slicker and slotted home his fourth goal of the campaign.

Bearne forced Slicker into action again midway through the half after he’d cut inside from the left flank, before City’s ‘keeper stopped Duncan’s goal-bound effort following a neat turn by Liverpool’s No.10.

City, though, ended the first half strongly. 

Keyendrah Simmonds’ shot from range went narrowly wide of Vitezslav Jaros’ goal, and nobody was on hand to convert Noah Ohio’s dangerous low cross two minutes before a break that came at the right time for the young Reds.

It was Liverpool who seized back control of proceedings immediately after the interval, however.

Slicker bested Duncan in a one-one-one created by Matteo Ritaccio’s excellent pass, and the ‘keeper prevented Bearne from doubling his tally in the hour mark after he’d escaped his defender with a brilliant turn.

The chances kept coming for Lewtas’ side, too, with substitute Abdi Sharif having an effort cleared off the line and Bearne rattling the post late on, but one goal proved enough to secure an impressive win.

Liverpool U18s: Jaros, N Williams, R Williams, Savage, Boyes, Larouci, Ritaccio (Sharif, 64), Dixon-Bonner (Clarkson, 52), Bearne, Longstaff, Duncan (O’Rourke, 86).

Unused substitutes: Winterbottom, Brookwell.

Team is :-

Jaros; N. Williams, Larouci, R. Williams, Boyes, Clarkson, Cain, Sharif, Bearne, Duncan, Glatzel.

Subs : Winterbottom, Savage, Longstaff, Dixon-Bonner, O’Rourke.

 

(For the record, a ten-goal margin would be enough, since we’d have outscored Derby, to put us into the national play-off against the winners of the South division, which this year is Arsenal. Anyway, it’s not happening. Carry on.)

And it finishes Liverpool 1 Middlesbrough 0.

Fidel O’Rourke scores the only goal of the game with four minutes left after good work by Glatzel. We finish level on points with Derby, who qualify for the national playoff against Arsenal on goal difference.

Interesting read on Toni Silva's post-Liverpool life.  Seems a lot of the way his career has gone he blames on agents, although to be honest he could have done a bit more to develop physically at the time (although being caught between Ince and Sterling didn't exactly help him much).  I do seem to remember there being an issue with his contract when it was up, although that could be bollocks.

 

That U19s side though, good few players in there.  Who's the blond kid though, not Roddan is it?

Wisdom (Derby), Hansen (Basel), Robinson (Forest), Sterling (City), Shelvey (Newcastle), Suso (Milan) and Coady (Wolves) all done well enough.  Sama and Silva probably should have gotten higher in their careers so far, Morgan too should be a league player at least.

 

edit: not sure what's gone on with the picture,  site doesn't seem to like me posting pics recently.

And we bought Texeira based on that game

Tex was ace. Shame he got done by all the injuries. He would have had a topflight career, maybe not here but definetly in Spain or Italy.
