U18s: Everton 0 - 4 Liverpool

Everton U18s hosted a Liverpool side at USM Finch Farm on Saturday that seemed determined to avenge senior matters from last weekend, destroying the Blues unbeaten start to the U18 Premier League (North) season.

The Young Toffees, who have won three and drawn one of their opening four matches, came from two goals down to secure a thrilling 3-2 victory at Burnley last time out.

But Everton U18s went behind early on, giving up two goals in 2 minutes, and at half-time they 4-0 down. Defender Dylan Thompson replaced Tom Cannon at half-time to prevent the mauling continuing in the second half.

Everton U18s: Leban, Higgins, Welch, Small, Kristensen, McAllister, Price, Butterfield, Warrington (61' Whitaker), Cannon (46' Thompson), Dobbin (82' Mills).
Subs not Used: Stewart, Lowey.

This should be a tasty one after all the negative press we’ve got recently from red shite goons, commentators and old alcy ex pros. Might we see a red or 2?

Not quite as tasty in recent years, Joe Williams got a red for a horror tackle a few years ago and Ryan Ledson was famous for a tackle that sent a RS player a couple of feet in the air, luckily only getting a yellow. Committed players both.

What a disappointment
Was it just a bad day or did we fail to compete again?

I've come to the conclusion, that our tea ladies XI would lose to the RS XI, or stewards, programme sellers or any other permutation of us vs. RS, we will always come off second best.

You can probably see what they mean when they say the academy is not developing players often enough.

Without dismissing the obvious continuation I find the U18 development less important than U23.

But a clear plan, direction, style and stability aligned to the first team all helps.

No one likes losing but, at this age, it's about improving players, not results.
