FT 1-1 and it goes to pens.

Final score,
St Helens Town 1-1 Cammell Lairds 1907

St Helens win 5-4 on penalties.

I think that concludes the qualifiers for this round anyway. If this is not correct, I'm sure someone will be along shortly to let me know.

Yeah, that was a shambles too, was Bullen in charge of the U23's that day as well?

Yellow Card

#116 04/09/2020 at 17:09

When I looked at our squads a week or so back we'd only got one forward in the 23s, he's not long out of the 18s and has just been numbered in the first team squad. If the rest of the 23s squad is that threadbare, plus others with or around the 1st team, I'm not sure that Bullen's got a lot to do with it. Might have been a team of kids.
Yes, it is embarrassing, but let's be reight: there's only one real priority this season and it'll be 'all hands to the pump'.  

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

Hopefully it was us putting a younger group against a more experienced Rotherham side which made it a mismatch.

That being said It's poor judgement organising the match if we couldn't field a side who can compete.

We will p*ss it

This is an interesting article, in it it explains that Brentford scrapped it's academy and opted for a B team.

It is explained really well, it's a long article so will try and sum it up...

Academy products that are really good get snapped up by the bigger clubs in their teens at a small fee because the biggest club can pay far more in wages thus Brentford will never make any money from it.

They have a globetrotting B team that means they now shop for rejects from the bigger clubs that haven't had a chance to fulfill their potential, no longer trying to unfairly compete with big clubs but actually forming a good relationship with them and giving these players a chance to show what they can do.

I think it is a really good argument for not having an academy, the business has changed and it is no longer a good business model unless you're at very least in the PL. 

We will p*ss it
