Arsebnal U23s 4 - 0 Everton U23s
David Unsworth's U23 side traveled to London this evening to face Arsenal in the ninth game of their PL2 season. The game kicked off at Meadow Park in Borehamwood at 7pm.
A major point of interest was which of the regulars, if any, might be held over to sit on the subs bench at tomorrow's Premier League game against Watford, considering the injury crisis that is challenging Rafa Benitez's first-team management skills.
Simms has not been seen for a few weeks and appears to be injured again, while Dobbin seemed a certainty for getting some game time tomorrow. All eyes were on midfielder Tyler Onyango, and he would get 82 minutes to hone his game a little more before possibly covering for the absent Doucouré tomorrow.
As for the game itself, Arsenal inflicted a comprehensive 4-0 defeat on Unsworth's proteges — their biggest defeat of a poor season so far.Everton U23s: Tyrer, John, Campbell, Welch, Astley, Warrington, Mills (56' Hughes), Price, Cannon, Onyango (82' Butterfield), Whitaker (77' Hunt).
Subs not Used: Barrett, Anderson.

I've said before you'd think the club would make these available. Definitely to season ticket holders and even the likes of myself who pay membership fees.
I'd pay an extra subscription. Match centre it is, although to head put and do the supportive thing and watch Villa with the wife.
I'll keep an eye on the phone and updates here.

Although the stats say Arsenal had 5 shots on target and we had 7. So maybe the scoreline doesnt tell the whole story.

It does sound like we were not totally outplayed – as the result would suggest. More a case of having the ability to finish clinically. Last night it sounds like Arsenal highlighted the importance of being completely ruthless in front of goal.

Places needs ripping out from top to bottom.

Our youth set-up is run by our ‘old boys club'. You know the ones, they understand The Everton Way doctrine propagated by lard-arse Kenwright and his boys. Mediocrity is our game.
