    Liam Delap

    He seems to have everything you would want in a center forward. He also seems to have tremendous self belief too and there is an edge about him ( one that he needs to control!) Definitely one to watch and he will step up next season to the EDS even though only just 17. Hopefully he will also be...

    U18 PL Cup - Final beckons

    The first good thing for me tonight was that we didn't bring in under 18's that don't play regularly at this level during the season. I don't know if t=it's a rule of the competition but for the 1/4 final of the FA youth cup last week we played Doyle , Harwood-Bellis , Mc Donald, Rogers , Braaf...

    Cup Final tomorrow night against Stoke. Well worth getting along to watch

    FA Youth Cup

    Both would make very interesting opponents. Blacburn beat us at their place earlier in the season and didn't deserve to lose to us last weekend and that's despite their lowly league position.

    FA Youth Cup

    Having watched the 18's a lot I would put this down as one of the poorest performances. Burnley was useless. Very organised and energetic in their attempt to defend for the whole game but going forward they offered zilch and as said for them to have a chance , never mind score, it had to be a...

    18's v Blackburn

    As far as I know it was his first 18's game and he did well. Nothing special I can recall but equally I can't think of any mistakes at all. It will have helped having Burns alongside him I think as he had a very good game and had most of the ball when we played around the back.

    18's v Blackburn

    Another good win today but not a great performance. Maybe not surprising as we had a lot of the best and most experienced players missing. Fiorini, Palmer , Delap to name just 3 and that's just from the attacking perspective. 1 nil at half time thanks to Robertson's goal after a top run from...

    Leicester City (A) - Post-Match Thread

    We have been screwed by the letter of the law more than once in recent seasons ( e.g. Laporte handball v Spurs at home) and thats what happened in this instance. KDB put his hands up to protect his face and that is permitted in the laws of the game. I wouldnt have argued if a pen had been given...

    u18s vs Liverpool

    Really windy conditions today but at least no rain as they had away at Reading last week but 2 wins in a row and 9 goals scored is an excellent effort. Liam Delap is a serious prospect and showed it early with his fantastic run and goal to set the game up perfectly. I would say he was 2nd best...

    Women's Team - 2019/2020

    there were Sky Sports cameras outside the ground before the game looking to do interviews so somthing might pop up over the next day or so. Not sure if was to do with the womens game or something else that might have happened. If the latter I hope whoever they spoke to told them where to stick...

    Women's Team - 2019/2020

    Agree on pretty well all that. Nothing wrong with a possession based game if you have the right players for it. City were exposed a bit by Utd recently when they pressed and our back 4 or 5 struggled under that pressure. Similarly in the attacking midfield , as you say, passing and keeping the...

    Women's Team - 2019/2020

    The problem seems to be a mixture of things with the womens team. They too often just don't see the pass forward and think safety. If they do see a pass, most of the time they are not capable of making the pass. (I would exclude Keira from this) The movement is too often not good enough. The...

    FA Youth Cup

    Not impressed me yet for sure but somehow I think there is something there and it might just need the right manager to bring it out. Possible though if he had stayed at WBA he might not have made those final steps to the first team if his form was what we have seen.

    FA Youth Cup

    Yep that one was a scary moment when we passed across our own box apparently unaware their center forward was there. Great challenge by Tabu for that one.
