Sunderland U18s 2 - 7 Everton U18s
Everton U18s secured a massive win 7-2 at Sunderland in the North division of their league, thanks to hat-tricks from Lewis Dobbin and Tom Cannon.
That makes 17 goals scored against the Mackems in just two games this season, as Sunderland were on the wrong end of an even bigger beating at Finch Farm back in September, losing 10-0.
The Blues made the breakthrough on 27 minutes when McCallister let fly from range and found the back of the net. Sunderland cancelled out that strike before Dobbin and Cannon opened their accounts for the afternoon just before the interval.
The power and pace from the Everton frontline was proving troublesome for the hosts' defence and Dobbin wasted little time in re-establishing the young Blues' lead. Just 5 minutes before the break, the young winger cut in from the left and beautifully arrowed his right-footed strike past the Black Cats' keeper.
For the hosts, half-time couldn't come quick enough, however, the Blues were just finding their rhythm. In the dying stages of the first 45, the instrumental Katia Kouyate threaded an inch-perfect through-ball into the feet of Cannon, who completed the job with ease.
Sunderland struck two minutes after the restart. However, it soon turned into the Cannon and Dobbin show as the pair both completed hat-tricks to the Blues out of sight. Two quickfire Dobbin goals just shy of the hour mark gave the visitors a commanding 5-2 advantage.
And Cannon completed a stylish performance from the Blues late on. The forward was in the right place at the right time to touch home, before latching onto Dobbin's expertly-timed pass and finishing smartly to conclude the scoring.
Everton Under-18s are now level on points with second-placed Liverpool in the U18 Premier League (North) standings.
Everton U18s: Leban, Welch, Thompson (78' Kristensen), Hosie, Lowey (59' Small), McAllister, Butterfield, Higgins (71' Hagan), Dobbin, Kouyate, Cannon.
Subs not Used: Barrett, Campbell

Your #2 though is written like it's your opinion, whereas someone else wrote just about those exact same words, having put time, effort and knowledge into assessing the team, make the post and you've just copied it and made out it's your own.
Disappointing. You, others and ToffeeWeb will have a different view, maybe I'm overreacting, so I'll end it there.

You were right about one thing, and one thing, yes you were overreacting!
Talk about petty!

Edit: The key point is 2-7... Ancelotti should plagiarise the living shit out of that this afternoon!

It's interesting seeing your words under someone else's name, and my first response was to try to tread lightly, hence the “winky face” in my initial response. You think I'm petty, that's your view. I disagree, and it has certainly backfired on me, fair enough that's the end of it from me.

I'm glad to give you the credit for the information, all good information about Everton is welcome. I certainly never, ever, write with the intention of claiming something that isn't mine and I have often stated I got information off another Everton website and thanked the person on the website for sharing it.
Phill, carry on giving that data and, if your name is underneath the article, you will have received a thank you from me.

I think we've seen recently the U23s playing a younger team, which is good. Players should not play in the U23s for more than 2-3 years max in my opinion.
