Mini-derby challenge for PL2 Champions
David Unsworth has used 33 young players in PL2 this season.
David Unsworth's tremendous Under-23s take on Liverpool tomorrow night as newly crowned Champions of Premier League 2.
It promises to be a great celebration of the fantastic achievement by these young and superbly talented youngsters that have been assembled at Everton's Academy, all the sweeter for the expected Guard of Honour their local rivals will provide at the start
Whatever the result, the Under-23s players will lift the Premier League 2 trophy after the full-time whistle - and those at Goodison Park to see them do so will also be backing the squad's ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is' fundraising campaign.
Donations will be taken on the night for the initiative, aimed at supporting young people on the brink of homelessness across the city. Kick-off is at 7:00 pm and entrance is free.
With a sizeable crowd expected for Monday's match, supporters are reminded they must have a match ticket to enter the stadium. These are currently available at both Everton Two and the Goodison Park Box Office.
Supporters can get tickets on the day at the Goodison Park Box Office. This includes Season Ticket holders.
The Fan Zone will also be in operation on the evening, the only place where teamsheets will be available for supporters.

Try Facebook and search for Everton U23.
It has been streamed live on there lately.

I would like to see Garbutt get a game and I think Robinson is big and strong enough to play left centre-back... 3-4-2-1:
Besic Feeney Robinson
Kenny Baningime Walsh Garbutt
Subs: Gray, Foulds, Charsley, Henen, C Duffus

Hopefully a clear out will begin after Arsenal and we sign 5/6 new players; then, as the youngsters progress, they can be given another chance.

But talk of filling the ground, Richard, is setting us up to fail. Even 20,000 is probably highly optimistic. I would guess 12,500 – which will be an excellent crowd for this occasion.

Hopefully Moshiri won't put up with much more of the shite we have had to endure this season. Not when the alternative is so much more appealing...

I know I will miss a great night and those going to see these lads for the first time hopefully will see two or three stars of the future turn it on for a great night for everyone. I hope it is a great game, I think it will be close as Liverpool have some great youngsters as well as us.
Wishing everyone who goes a great game, with victory for the Blue Boys.

The first team have downed tools since Europa League qualifying was confirmed a few weeks back. Many of the first team already know they have no future; we should reward a fair few of these lads with genuine premier league experience.
Stekelenburg or Robles in goal.
Jonjoe Kenny at RB.
Holgate at centre-half with whoever,
Antonee Robinson at left-back.
Davies, Gana and Schneiderlin in central midfield.
RA up top.
Calvert-Lewin, Sambou, Baningime, Pennington, Charsley on the bench.
The lads have certainly earned a chance and the players in front of them look far from interested atm.

I'm a close relation of one of the team who has played all season so really looking forward to it.

Come on, Dave, you can go out on the town any night... you may not get a chance to see such a promising group of players like these again.
27 Posted 07/05/2017 at 22:43:45
I think you may be pleasantly surprised!
28 Posted 07/05/2017 at 23:51:41
I know that Monday is your night out, but if you fancy going to the match just post on here, I'll pick you up and drop you back off for a couple of beers afterwards (it's a 7:00pm kick off).
You've watched a lot of these kids when they were younger, and we don't pick up silver too often!

Barkley is waiting to see if Lukaku signs, Lukaku is waiting to see what new players Everton Football Club sign and Koeman is waiting to see who Walsh will be able to convince to sign and Farhad is waiting to see how much Billy Boy can get a discount on the players for. Happy Days waiting,
Come on U23s give us something to cheer about beating the red's not much to cheer about from the first team you guy's have put the first team to shame in the last three matches they played.
All the first team squad should be made to go and watch the U23s play. They will learn about passion, pride and desire and of course how to be winners. Great pride in winning the league, young blues!
31 Posted 08/05/2017 at 02:05:58
Anyway, this is about our young lads and Unsy who have done brilliant. Hopefully a win against the rs will top off a great season...
32 Posted 08/05/2017 at 08:15:00
33 Posted 08/05/2017 at 08:26:53
In any case, wishing the boys; Unsy and team all of the best for tonight. If there is an ongoing match report, I shall follow every word!!

١.99 charge for Home is where the heart is.
I don't know if this is available for overseas reception.

Hopefully they can end the season with a derby win and go out with a bang and be a great night of celebration. I presume it will be shown on Facebook as usual.
I think we need to stay calm though and not expect too much from these players too soon. It's a huge step up to the first team and I think we need to be patient with players like Calvert-Lewin and Lookman etc.
Whilst we all want to see the young lads do well I think we need to be realistic that if we want to compete in Europe and get into that top 6 then we need to bring in a lot more talent to go straight into our first team and not be expecting too much from our young players.
Enjoy the night everyone that will be there. The future is Blue!

Eugene (#36) must have just missed you, I got mine in the Upper Bullens, you can sit anywhere so there are plenty of good specks.
Anyone going who is not used to the U23s get you team sheet from the fans zone before the game, it will come in very handy for both teams. Get their handy in case they only open a few turnstiles.
41 Posted 08/05/2017 at 13:52:10
Come on guys, those who can't get along, let's at least support the charity.
42 Posted 08/05/2017 at 15:44:50
You must have supped some stuff over 60 years!! Some sort of record surely!
Enjoy the game.

If you can't make it, don't watch it on a dodgy stream pay the ١.99, less than a pint of Chang.
