Non of them will go on to be regular Premier League footballers for us or any other club. They're League One standard.
Cheers Mystic Meg. Doesn't help their development though does it.

Are people aware that this isn't our first team playing before they get their knickers on a twist?

We had to lose as we're in the Semi Finals of The League Cup and next to bottom of the Premier League , our Squad couldn't cope with 2 Cup runs , and we all know it .
Get real , lads and lasses . It was a nothing game .
Good run out for the youngsters , that's all it was .

I don't agree. Confidence plays the biggest part at this stage of the season. Defeats like this make things worse. You have to get a winning mentatlity going and this just sets us back further.

i like how forest have continued to attack. even after going 1-0 and 2-0 up, they didn't sit back (like we do) and invite pressure on, they have continued to press and create chances and to be perfectly honest, they could have easily have had 7 or 8 goals.

F*ck me those NSPCC ads have a lot to answer for.

Personally I think his father should be beaten for raising the sort of pussy who cries at a football score.

Afraid Sam is too busy trying to prove that 1 up front is answer - still

And Ravel is a passenger, don't expect him to stand up in a relegation dogfight

Amazes me that even the kids float free kicks harmlessly into the opposing keepers arms a la Noble,Jarvis, Downing.

Another tactically inept Sam Allardyce performance, set out not to attack.

We are still trying the same tactic. Hit Maiga for the f*** on or down the wing and cross to 1 player. It hasn't worked once and we are STILL trying it.

This!

I don't know why people are getting so emotional over this. The FA cup isn't a priority, the first team need to be kept fresh for the league and this was a chance for the youth to show what they are made of. They've showed that they aren't all that. Move on.

[quote="Bamber Gascoigne"][quote="evomutant"]A pounding Ron Jeremy would be proud of.

Should have signed him - we'd have a chance of coming from behind

Bravo! You are mr brand.

Still, there is not much in life that makes me prouder than hearing bubbles in the 89th minute of a 4-0 defeat to lower league opposition.
