I'm glad Richards scored, he wont feel so bad about the penalty now.

We have drawn Sunderland in the next round, that will be a very tough game against Sunderland 1st team but they are chasing promotion so not sure if they will field a strong 11. However, they did in the last round beating Newcastle academy team 4-0. Maybe that's because they couldn't afford to lose that one. Imagine Sunderland 1st team losing to Newcastle's academy. North East social media would have gone into melt down.

Point of note. City ladies are also semi final bound in the womens conti cup. They won 7-1 last night beating Brighton. Last 4 are city, arsenal, Chelsea and United. Please draw the rags.

I am hoping the EDS game will be a wednesday as I would have a chance of getting up there to watch it.
Utd women need taking down a peg or 6.They are going to walk the WSL division 2 and have beaten two WSL 1 teams to get to the semi. The semi will be a massive test for them and if it's City we just have to beat them. Trouble is we are not playing that well. 7.1 against Brighton sounds great but I thought we were very average for much of the game and a gloss was put on the score as we scored 4 in the last 5 minutes!

Not a massive follower of the wsl, but isn't this the rags first year in women's footie?? I think when they started up some apparently decent players jumped ship to them. Are they going to be a threat on this front going forward? God I have the fookin rags

Effectively yes it is the first year although once upon a time they did have a team. They are looking decent although the 2nd tier league they are in is bobbins. They have beaten 2 teams in the cup from WSL1 and yes they did have some players join them. They play Arsenal in the semi just as they are struggling for players and form while City play Chelsea ( as expected)

Sadly i think they will be a threat in the future

Good 4.1 win for the 18's in the youth cup tonight. Strange game in a way.When we were 3 nil up quite early I was thinking it doesn't really feel like we deserve to be 3 up as in some ways it was quite even. After that we could have had another 6 or 7 with the chances we had running at them but the quality was lacking on the final ball /timing of the pass or the finish but heyho can't complain at an easy win.

Interesting to see Tommy Doyle in the Dinho role as I normally expect him box to box. Looked ok too with good reading of the game and passing. The odd occasion when he got wrong sided but overall he played well. Looked even better when McDonald took over that role and released into his normal role.

Some great flashes of quality through the midfield from Felix Nmecha but he was one of the guilty ones with the final bit. Braaf also looking dangerous with his running but he had a night to forget in terms of the final pass/shot even if he did score one aided by a wicked delection.

Great to see Touazi back scoring. Looked a great prospect when he first came into the team , then very quiet ( some injury issues) but 2 nice goals tonight. The first was very much all down to him as he turned his center back really well ( he probably should have done better) then held off another defender as he closed in on the keeper and slotted it past him.The 2nd was a tap in after a great cross from Ben Knight who was put in by a great ball inside the full back I think from Doyle.

Good at the back mostly with Garcia and Bellis-Harwood at the center. Frimpong at right back who I thought had a very good game and Ogbeta on the left. Lots of playing the ball around the back and they are good enough to do it ( not to sure about Ogbeta as his positioning for a pass doesnt always impress) but overall it did get us through the press and into some great attacking positons. Shame as I said we didnt make the most of them.
