I don't remember who it was who said a couple of weeks back that what do you with those wins if you'll never play these lads. Sour grapes! Probably Harry R.

Congrats to the boys!!!

We should never have lost to Norwich in 2013. We were in a different league to them.

 

EDIT: Amazing performance again last night. A joy to watch such a talented, well-coached team. And if you haven't seen the 2nd. 3rd and 4th goals yet you are in for a treat as they were stunners. 

Our youth set-up's recruitment and track record is incredible. Let's hope the first team starts to benefit from it very soon.

Am I being paranoid or did the ITV4 commentary team spend a extraordinary amount praising various individual Citeh players?  Much less gushing about any of the Chelsea players that won 5-1 (6-2 on agg).

They complimented both teams & their coaching staff, said the teams where a credit to both camps.

Come on it's football not war.

Really hope these lads push on now...

 

I wonder if we will see any of the youngsters by the end of the season? obviously all depends on results but who wouldn't love to see the like of RLC, Chalobah, Aina, Ake, Solanke being joined by Mount, Chalobah, Castillo, Sterling, Hudson Odoi, Ugbo etc.

 

reckon if we seal the title Sterling, Castillo and Ugbo may feature... Sterling was another class yesterday

If we win it next year it'll equal the bubsy babes from the 50's, what an achievement that would be for the young guys and Jody

I don't know what there overall record was, but the most consecutive finals they got to in succession was three, we are currently on six.

"The scene is set for a celebratory Friday this week as our Under-18s look to seal the national title with victory against Reading at Cobham, hours before Antonio Conte’s senior side head to West Brom searching for a win that crowns them Premier League champions.

Jody Morris’s youngsters seized the initiative in the Under-18 Premier League title race with a 3-1 win over Arsenal that saw the young Blues leapfrog the Gunners into top spot with one game of the campaign remaining. Cole Dasilva, Trevoh Chalobah and Martell Taylor-Crossdale were on the scoresheet for the hosts, who are now one win away from completing a remarkable Treble following triumphs in the FA Youth Cup and Under-18 Premier League south section already this term."

True but they were the better side in both legs of the final and so deserved their win.

He's only 16!i didn't see the didn't see the first leg, but the commentator said he was our best player 

Indeed he was. Callum Hudson-Odoi scored a great goal in the second leg, made a terrific assist for the goal in the first leg and was the best player over the final as a whole.
