True as that may be - it really shouldn't matter against Lincoln. Having said that - we probably have the worst record of all top-teams of going out to minnows in the FA Youth Cup. There have been some shocking results over the last 10 years.Elanga, Devine and obviously Greenwood are big misses.
Neville Mengi Fish Bejger
McCann Helm Mejbri
Wellens Hoogerwerf Sotona
I knew he was 17 when he partnered Fish(16) in the 23s only a few months ago I just had a serious brainfart when I checked on the official website to see when he was actually 18Considering he has been playing U23 football this season its easy to forget. But yeah he is still 17 years old.
well I can't say I agree with you - think we have been pretty poor. Sotona and Hoogewerf both tend to run really fast, and forget about everything else than running really fast!A good start from United, some half chances and already a few shots inside the box blocked. We’ll score soon...
Think the opening 15 minutes or so was good, but lately we’ve been poor, agree with that.well I can't say I agree with you - think we have been pretty poor. Sotona and Hoogewerf both tend to run really fast, and forget about everything else than running really fast!
We really should, a poor side and not even that well organised. Mejbri after a lively start has been quiet, think we (or he) need to get him more of the ball. Perhaps a sub on for Wellens, all our attacks are coming from the left side. McCann has been good but we need to break them quicker and get the ball in between the lines more.Looking slightly better in the second half. We should be able to put a lot more pressure on this Lincoln-side.
Everton and Liverpool going out this early must be a similar type of ”shock” for them as it has been for us in recent years.Worth noticing that several P.L clubs are out of the tournament already.
Liverpool lost away to Spurs
Watford were beaten by Fleetwood (!)
Leicester beaten by Brighton
Newcastle beaten by Norwich
Everton beaten by Derby
We will play away to Norwich in the next round
Agreed on all points. McCann has very similar traits to Levitt.Bejger has been good at right back, Mejbri has been causing them big problems when he’s on the ball, McCann has been absolutely controlling things from Deep midfield. This second half has been great! And the sound is now working too!
Think we started brightly but the second half of the 1st was pretty poor, Lincoln made it hard by being really physical. 2nd half was much better and after the 2-0 goal we just cruised.Only caught the last half hour. I'm assuming the prior 60 mins were just as easyish-peasyish?
First half wasn’t great, but we were slightly better with a few more opportunities. The first half goal was a complete fluke, but probably deserved on the whole. The first 20 mins of the second half was great. We really dominated them and they had no response. Second goal was definitely coming and well deserved.FT United 2-0 Lincoln
Goals: Hoogewerf (2)
Mejbri & McCann the obvious standouts for me. A decent second half but we need to be much better if we want to progress to the latter stages of the cup.
