7-0 in a cup final is hugely embarrassing, even with 10 players.

Was the ref being over the top or did we lose our cool? 2 penalties and a sending off in the first 20 minutes was basically game over.

Happens pretty regularly in kids football.
At that level? I'm genuinely surprised by that. I'd have thought it would be a lot tighter like in men's football.

My lad plays and yes, when there is a huge difference in teams quality it happens, but when teams are evenly matched, even at kids level they tend to be tight games. Admitted u11s this season so 9v9 ans 60 minutes games, but most games he's played in have been won or lost by the odd goal, and a few 0-0, 1-1 draws. That's in the mjpl.

Didn't we beat this lot a few weeks ago as well. It did seem like a heck of a collapse. I guess they will learn from it, or we've learnt from it who has the backbone to success and who doesn't. Or it's a freak result with freak circumstances...

Mjpl is a reasonable standard on a Saturday morning especially the teams towards the top of every age group. Lots of academy sides scattered about in there aswell.

Luke Bell signs first pro deal. Keeper in the u18s and will now step up to 23s.

That's Tyler, Billson and Bell now in the 23s. What's the plan there?

Hes the eldest right? I’d expect to see him let go if he hasn’t forced his way into the reckoning by now. Probably looking for a suitable club who can take him on next season.
Yeah, 21/22 I think... if you remember, he went on loan to Scunthorpe at the beginning of last season but did his knee in the first game and was out for the rest of the season.

Nuneaton
Anybody going to the game at Nuneaton on Thursday night? I might walk down with my little lad.
