The youth team coaches need to sort the discipline of the young reds out especially when playing united. We had two more players sent off yesterday against them and let a potential victory slip away again. Im all for coaches geeing up players but the number of sendings off we are seeing against that lot is beyond a joke.

We only had 1 player sent off, Brookwell.

Haven't seen his red card but the one Boyes picked up a few weeks ago was a clumsy tangle of legs whilst last man - not really a discipline issue.

My bad, the way the echo reported it, I read it as two. But we've had a number of players at youth and U23 level being sent off against them so I think the point is still valid.

It was one way traffic but United lacked sufficient quality in the final quarter.

And an other interesting observation - Wigan have, unusually, two England u17 players in their team: David Weir's lad and Joe Gelhardt an odd looking specimen but who is very lively and scores goals. If Liverpool go through they have a plumb tie against Bury in the Semis.

u23s on now against West Ham, 10 mins in.

Some of the u23 games this year have been quite uninteresting given the lineups, not to be harsh but there's been a load of lads who definitely don't have a future here. Tonight we have Jones, Lewis and Glatzel on the pitch so there's a bit of interest there.
