    U23s lost 0-2 to QPR today, most notable for the return of Kabasele. I don't know how Kabs played, I would understand if he were a bit rusty, but it's not a good reflection on Lazaar and Navarro...

    Only because we scored for them!

    B.Lawal has probably achieved every school boys dream.

    Netting for the National side.

    Hugely disappointing that we could only manage to score one passed a keeper with a tiny hand.

    Since he's Irish, scoring for England is probably the stuff of his nightmares!

    He's been on the bench a few times of late for us hasn't he? Late sub against Newport IIRC, be nice if we could have another young lad knock on the door of the first team

    Just been reading about a lad called Kamil Conteh who captained our under 18's to a 4-1 win over QPR yesterday. I was wondering if he is another addition to our flock of sons of famous fathers, as there was a very good British Boxer called John Conteh who was a light heavyweight (I think) who graced the boxing rings a few years back.

    We also seem to be doing very well of late at U18 level and hopefully some of these guys might get a crack at the 1st team before the end of the season as long as promotion is already sealed of course.

    Maybe someone who is more up to date with these kids could update us all about which ones are looking the part and maybe be ready to step up a level to the U23's or even the 1st team.

    I'm just lazy, but, does anyone know how Mitchel Bergkamp is doing? I know he was a sub vs the u17's, but is he any good?

    He'd have to have been a late father to have an 18 year old son.
    He must be nearly 70 by now Conteh?

    Maybe a grandson then? Having said that many men father children in their 50's.

    True enough.
    My brother became a father at 50 and Charlie Chaplin at 80 I think?!
    FA Youth Cup v Toon at 2pm today.

    Credit to the U18s for trying to play out from the back but it hasn't gone well in the first 5 minutes and they've just given away an extremely cheap goal.

    1-1.
    Hall with an equaliser that I just missed!

    Desmond now.
    Two great saves by "Stevie" in goal.

    Played very well in this half. Lo Everton great on the ball finding the passes and distributing . Hunter with his speed. Galvez and Abbott both calm as anything and technically neat. Marriott some nice saves and Forde unlucky with a couple of efforts. Extra time it is.

    Yes certainly taken the game to them and SBLE has taken control of the game.
    They all interchange well I think.

    Damn, that is painful but great free kick for Newcastle. GK got a hand to it.

    Booooooo. Last second free kick winner when we have been the better side for the most part. :mad:

    The idiot who came on as sub and immediately gave away a cheap free kick on the edge of the area should have his contract ripped up
     
  25. I Blame Bassett

    I Blame Bassett Squad Player

    That's cruel.
    Great free kick but a daft foul to concede.
    They played well and hopefully will gain a lot of confidence from their collective and individual performances.
     
  26. Smudger

    Smudger Messi's Mad Coach Staff Member

    Bit harsh IRB. The lad's just turned sixteen. Just hope he does not do that again. Most of the time the free kick would have sailed over the bar. Marriot denied his chance in the sun. Still some promising talents in this side. No Janjeva either or Langston as well.

    That is a shame .

    They played well.
     
  28. I Blame Bassett

    I thought so too.
    Sport is cruel.
    The young man/boy who conceded that free kick will dwell on that moment for some time.

    What's happened to him? He's barely played this season, has he been injured?

    So he should. Pointless challenge.

    Indeed so reids. The Recluse (sadly still no sign of him and we all hope he is well) said Andy had been injured earlier in the season with a long term season issue. Cannot remember for the life of me what it was though. I think it was mentioned by The Recluse earlier in this thread but I don't know on which page. Which is an almighty shame as he was progressing nicely last season.
