The youths


Recommended Posts

That was a great result by the young players of the club. Hopefully they can bring home the youth cup when they play Manchester City Youths in the final. I also hope that the players that have played in the cup will go on to play for the full professional side, either next season or beyond.

fantastic game. villa are known as the best youth set up around at the moment, and we took them apart at times. defending was a bit suspect at times, but going forward we are a joy to watch. once again kakuta iwas the standout player, alongside tajera (spelling?) and lee sawyer till he got a red. cant wait till the final. and in all honesty, after the final whistle went i wasnt that bothered about the spurs result.

Isnt the final a two legged affair ? If so it would be great to get a good crowd at SB.

This really is very warming news , congrats to all involved.

yep, two legged.

I watched the game- we did really well... it's a big thing to reach the fa youth cup final, it seems to me that when a team makes the final it is like putting a marker down: generally one or two players at least go on to make the first team squad. obviously harder with us but there are a lot of promising players there.

tejera looked really smart and of course kakuta seems to be emerging as the jewel- for me maybe he needs to develop a little more physically, but aside from his obvious talent he looks quite polished / rounded as a footballer already, I daresay more than sinclair even.

both red cards were the same really- miscontrol followed by lunges to keep posession.

first time for us since '61 apparently... which was, I think, the players of tambling's generation.

they havent finalised a date yet. surprisingly as the fa are involved, it seems to be pretty much made up. city won their semi 8 days ago. and why is a final over 2 legs? surely a final is the FINAL!!! the clues kinda in the name.

there a very eclectic mix of european and english in the main. the main players are gael kakouta - french, miroslav stoch - slovakia, captain nana ofori - english, morton nielsen - danish. the other stand out for me in this run was frank nouble - english 16 year old monster of a player. he has the pysique of a middle weight boxer and pace of a sprinter.
