    Kick-off: Today 1.00 pm

    Apparently at least 5000 people will come.

    Hopefully we will see our best team
    Starting XI: Kovar - Laird, Bernard, Ercolani, Williams - Garner; Gomes, Barlow - Chong, Greenwood, Bohui
    Bench: Fojticek, Mengi, Puigmal, Traore, Levitt, Ramazani & Burkart

    But Barlow, Laird, Kovar & Puigmal weren't involved in the last games for the U23 or U18 so hmmhh.

    Will be also interesting to see how Gomes, Greenwood, Chong, Garner and Williams will cope with a UEFA-Youth League game after they were involved so much with the 1st team in the last two weeks.

    Should we beat Midtjylland then our quarter-final opponent will be Tottenham or FC Porto.

    Midtjylland's way to the last 16 Round
    Domestic Champions Path 1st Round

    Bohemian FC 2-1/2-1
    Domestic Champions Path 2nd Round
    Hamilton Academical 2-0/2-1
    Play-offs
    Roma 1-1, 4-2 penalty shoot-out

    Not sure, and I'm no expert, but I think that the youngsters will be training with the first team today. If they have to learn drills and tactics they only have today and tomorrow morning.

    O'Connor has started every game and he is miles better than either of Bernard or Ercolani.

    I don't want Bernard starting over Ercolani. Ercolani isn't some titan, but he has less mistakes in him than Bernard.

    ----------------Kovar
    Laird---Ercolani---O'Connor--Williams
    ----Gomes----Garner---Barlow
    ----Chong--Greenwood--Mellor/Traore

    Bernard - without trying to be too critical, I can see why Chelsea released him.

    And the classic games vs Young Boys. Diminutive opponents seem to be our thing.

    How is Bernard starting over Williams? O'Connor is a better CB and that's not even his natural position.

    More than 6000 tickets sold, so quite a large crowd considering its a youth game

    That's actually crazy especially considering it is a 1pm kick off.

    Will that be a 4-2-3-1 with Garner and Traore in a pivote and Gomes as a 10, or a 4-3-3 with Gomes further back and Burkhardt and Chong tucked in?

    Gomes has usually played next to Garner with Garner being furthest back. Usually Traore will be more forward unless Gomes sees an opportunity to join in the attack.

    Should be a 4-3-3

    Gomes and Garner are going to dominate the midfield. Even though Garner has had 2 mistakes, he's largely been positive and showed off his talent with his quick decision making.

    6 fouls against us and typically no yellow card. Their keeper flies out and smashes against Laird and gets the foul given to him which is daft, that's far more reckless from the keeper than Laird. We're playing well despite the scorline, just lacking a bit of cutting edge at the moment.

    Shouldn’t we be comfortably dominating Midtjylland with Laird, O’Connor, Garner, Gomes and Chong?
