    And 3-0 on 35 minutes, another excellent goal from Chris Curran this time. Great performance at the moment.

    The goals had been coming, there was a good ten minutes of constant pressure and United chances before Ajose made the breakthrough.

    3-0 at half-time, Stoke just hit the bar in the last minute before the break.

    Impressive stuff, lots of improvement in this side still (Macheda's had a below-par game so far for example) but they're still far too good for Stoke.

    Double substitution on 61 minutes:

    15. Reece Brown for Matty James
    14. Cameron Stewart for Ollie Norwood

    Corry Evans taking the armband and pushing up into midfield.

    4-0 full-time. In cruise control in the second half, never looked like conceding, could have added a few more. Great performance, Ajose, Norwood and Evans particularly impressive for me.

    Evans I thought as well was good. There is lots of room for impovement though which is always a good thing.

    Thanks a bunch, PS18. How did James do? What kind of injury is Petrucci out with?

    I believe Petrucci was called up for the Italian U18's. He might just be with them rather than injured. That's a pure guess though.

    Evans brought some real 'experience' to the backline I thought. With Brown and Wootton still very new to the side and Strickland and Gill out of position it needed someone like Corry to step in and lead.

    Who's the fat Italian? Pavarotti? Dead mate.

    James was solid, outshone by Norwood a bit though I thought. Should probably have got a goal or two though.

    Not sure if Petrucci is injured or (like MadDogg said) just already joined up with Italy U19s. Their first game is on Weds/Thurs so it seems feasible.

    Chirag, I don't know if you know, but the site you keep quoting/linking, http://manunitedyouth.wordpress.com, is the site of our ONE AND ONLY, PS18 here on CAF!

    He surely makes it easier for all of us, to keep track on how our youth are doing.

    Keep up the great work PS18!

    Someone said Petrucci was fat in a different thread......which is why he is now being referred to as the fat Italian!

    The fact that he is as skinny as a rake will hopefully help him lose this tag!

    He missed the game against Stoke as is away with the Italian Youth team in their training camp.

    John Gorman who is with our 16's, was with the Northern Ireland team the week before, missed the Derby game, as he played in three UEFA Qualifying games. Unfortunately the Irish were eliminated during the process. So it seems that some lads will miss Academy games due to international commitments.
