Cup Exit for Youth Team in Etihad

Cup Exit for Youth Team in Etihad

It wasn't to be for the Clarets youth team tonight in the FA Youth Cup fourth-round tie They were defeated 2-0 by Manchester City in the Etihad Stadium but by no means disgraced themselves and in the end they can be proud of their achievements. A brave performance saw the Clarets contain Acedemy side, City until the 76th minute when 16 year Marcos Lopez on a dash from the half way line finally beat Jakovlevs with a cool shot. With two minutes to go it was all over after City increased their lead thanks to a goal by Jose Pozo who is rumoured to have cost City around £2.5m from Real Madrid.

Terry Pashley though can be proud of his young guns. Playing 4-5-1 formation, with captain Cameron Howieson in the holding midfield role and Jason Gilchrist alone up front, Burnley took the game to City and played some attractive football in the first half and defended well. In the second-half though they had to defend deep whilst creating few chances up front.

City in the end were just too strong for the Clarets and they will now fancy themselves for the final with United out the frame following Burnley's 4-3 victory over them at Old Trafford in the third round.

Manchester City: Lawlor, Facey, Leigh, Evans, Plummer, Rekik, Bytyqi, Ntcham, Cole, Lopes, Pozo (Barker 88).

Subs Not Used: Bossaert, Gunn, Bryan, Celina

Goals: Marcos Lopes (76), Jose Pozo (88)

Burnley: Jakovlevs, Dummigan, Conlan, Lowe, Whitmore, Holt, Jackson (Galvin 87), Daly (Ly 81), Gilchrist, Howieson, Frost (Hill 81).

I listened to this on Clarets Player and was quite impressed by the Burnley youth team. City were a big strong, talented side as you might expect and we frustrated them for a long time. All credit to the lads!

Yep me too, well played lads it's hard to compete against lads that have been bought for big money and their talent was there to see, will they ever get a chance to breakthrough into the first team? I very much doubt it they can just buy their next stars.

Well done the young lads and not to forget Terry Pashley for all his good work.

It sounded on CPlayer as though we held them on chances, if not possession until the 77th minute. Then, when they got the second it was from a player they paid Real Madrid more for than we quite possibly spend on our entire youth set up in a year... though I may be exaggerating. I can't remember which, but one of City's players had been in their first team in the FAC. Rekik was in the Pompey team our senior side beat 5-1 at Fratton last year. At the start of the season VR predicted that our youth side would struggle after losing so many of the FAYC semi-finalists, and a number of them being so young. So, all credit to what they've achieved, and let's hope they build on this experience across the rest of the season.
