    I don't know what color 'lillywhite' is, I just know that if you're wearing it I can beat you up.

    Hopefully we play the same team that beat Liverpool 3-0 in the semi-final, we're a much better team with a striker up front.

    Dangermen for them? Obika obviously, he's absolutely on fire and has shown that he can cause us problems. I remember one attacking midfielder giving us lots of problems but can't remember which it was... Kane maybe, or Pritchard?

    Pritchard is a problem as well as Caballeros and Bentaleb are a threat too

    the Spurs XI will be different...Obika, Pritchard, Carroll will all drop down, as they did for Everton.

    Is this a double header? If not, was the venue drawn or did we somehow earn home advantage?

    This Spurs site is claiming it's £5.00 (Adults) and £2.00 (65+ and U20) from their ticket office, so hopefully we're offering the same prices.

    It also says "fans can enter via cash turnstiles on the night at entrance E30 at Old Trafford."

    That seems a bit high, though!

    Ben Pearson should get a start over Ekangamane.

    Why? Pearson has played a handful of minutes for the reserves...Ekangamane is much more assured at this level and very tidy.

    Pearson should be on the bench.

    Ekangamane will be playing for Barnet in 5 years time. Ben Pearson will be playing for United. No time for sentimentality. Give the lad some game time.

    :lol: what utter shite. You've absolutely no idea about the career paths of head two. Ben Pearson is very talented and very promising...but I've seen better players from youth level not make it. He very well could make it here, by Charni is a much better player than you are giving him credit for. I'm a big fan of Pearson...but Ekangamane is the better option for spurs game. Ben will get plenty of reserve footba next season.

    I was just winding you up a little. Which youth players better than Pearson have failed to make the grade? I think that Pearson has looked very assured in his substitute appearances for the reserves. I am impatient!

    I understand the impatience mate...I'm desperate to see our youth system produce the likes of the 90's again. Pearson is one of them that just fills me with hope. As does Januzaj, as does Barmby at times. The same with Mats and Wilson.

    I too have been quite impressed with how Pearson has come on and played at ressie level...by they've not been games anywhere near as big, and as tough as spurs in final.

    I've ended up giddy about Fabien Brandy, Darron Gibson, David Jones, Chris Eagles, Nick Ajose, Ebanks Blake, Magnus Eikrem, Michael Barnes, Danny Drinkwater, Matty James, Ollie Norwood, Rossi (okay not academy), Macheda, Ravel Morrison, Robbie Brady, josh King. Markus Neumayr are all players I have been very excited by in the past. Just so much can happen between 16 and 19 odd. I share your enthusiasm mind :)

    I have only been as giddy about Morrison and Rossi. Macheda yes but that was based on what he did in his early senior career. In the academy I always thought that Petrucci was the superior of the two. I did think that Petrucci would hit the big time.

    Aye. 7pm kick off. Coverage on MUTV begins at 6.30pm.

    Looking forward to this...I went to the final last year against Villa. Cracking night.

    not been to an u21 match for a long time and my 2 sons, 8 and 5 keep asking to go to a match at OT, looked like an ideal match to take them.

    Ekangamene is very talented and has a fair chance of making it I reckon.

    Not here I don't think. You have to remember that hardly any youth team players make the grade at United. I would pick Pereira, Pearson and Januzaj as the three I can see in the U18's & U21's that I think really think have what it take. I confess that I am not a great watcher of defenders and goalkeepers so I would exclude those positions from my assessment.

    Ekangamenes development over the past few months has been fantastic and if he can continue to develop at this rate he will have a chance, he does a very thankless job of shielding the defence and breaking up play but he does it very well. I think him being put in this role along with Thorpe moving into defence is the main reason the under 21s defence has been so much better recently

    Wonderful that 2 proper football clubs with illustrious records in young player development and stylish football have made the final.

    In many ways, it's apt and symmetrically appropriate that this will be SAFs final ever game in charge of the club. Win or lose, he not only leaves behind a very young and vibrant 1st team squad but also a crop of youngsters about to hit the big time as good as any other club in the land.

    I would think victory in this tournament would give him as much pleasure as his 13tu and final PL win. I don't usually watch out youth teams but will be looking for a stream on Monday night to see how these boys get on.

    One last trophy for the SAF dynasty please!

    He really has come on leaps and bounds. Looks like he understands that midfield role more and how to be effective there, which is often not the case for younger players. Be interesting to see how he gets on, he's definitely a bigger prospect than the likes of Tunnicliffe for me.

    Pearson and Januzaj are the two I picked as the 'most likely' from that group too. Still not sure about Pereira though, was really excited about him based on those highlights that we had from his Belgium games, but I've not seen him hit those heights yet. Possibly doesn't help that he plays higher up the pitch, whereas for Belgium he seemed to start from deeper and dictate play.

    Impressed with Gollini and Sutherland.

    Thorpe and Keane impressed me greatly this season.

    Lingard has an outside shot for me and if Llarnel Cole can rediscover his form I think he has an outside chance.

    I'm also a fan of Vermijl.

    Wilson, Barmby and Pereira will have an interesting season next year...as will Byrne and Daelhi. Be very interesting to see how they adapt to reserve team football. Pearson is a gem and if Rothwell stays fit I'm sure we will see plenty of him.

    Blackett looks very useful to me at times and will we be likely to see a little more of Tom Lawrence next year?

    Id love to see Byrne given more playing time. It would be nice to have at least one natural striker in the team. Our youth team has been odd like that for nearly 2 seasons now...

    We'll have some quality options up top for the reserves next season.

    Will Keane, Sam Byrne and James Wilson.

    Going to the match on Monday, where is the best place to park?
    Normal I would park miles away and walk but have my 2 young sons with me.
