    I don't get why we've excluded Skipp and Tanganga from this competition, as they won't get significant first team time.
    Playing them in the same side as Parrott would've improved the team's chances and the familiarity of the players.
    As I've said repeatedly and tediously, the academy and the first team need to be more flexibly combined.

    And that's how it finished.

    Bayern finish top, as their H2H wins out over Red Star on away goals.
    We now need to better the Serbians' result in Greece on the final day, as we have a superior H2H record but one less point.
    Failing to get anything in Belgrade really cost the academy side and Parrott's absence was probably key.

    Steptonho's talked up Dennis Cirkin in an interview with FootballDotLondon

    Couldn't be worse than Danny Woes has consistently been this season...

    Both of our goals have come from the spot, as Parrott's been fouled twice by their keeper. Why's he still on the pitch?

    Pros: we didn't concede in the 73rd and 96th minute
    Cons: we conceded in the 44th and 63rd minute instead

    Are our Academy team that good and Liverpool that bad? I ask because I don't follow them and was wondering if they would improve under Mourinho?

    Liverpool won the Youth FA Cup last season and they're 2nd in the Northern U18s Premier League to City.
    Our U18s have been quite up and down this season, largely depending on who's available and who's being used elsewhere, I think.

    I wonder if we should visit another team's board and ask how they enjoyed this match...?

    Red Star are currently 1-0 up in Greece too, so it looks like this is the end for the kids.

    Goals from Romaine Mundle and Tarelle Whittaker either side of a pair of Harvey White penalties led to a lot of predictable comments
