      Under 21's lost 3-2 to a last minute goal v tranmere in the efl trophy

      I didn't see this online anywhere. Sounds like a close one.

      I notice Van Den Berg played 90 minugtes with this team, so I guess he is not in contention for Thursday.

      Should we chip in to help lower level clubs. I for one would be in favour of it. Been said about £200m could prevent clubs going down the pan. 20 Premier league clubs..£50m target..cud be. Government to pay the most.

      Will our owners sanction a decent donation. Could also make a case for the broadcasters to chip in as well. Sky and all the rest should chip in.Could be done on a monthy payment scheme.Maybe the players as well should be prepared to chip in more.

      The way things are going all the players will be "chipping in" when they negotiate their next contracts. That will be even more true if the top clubs take more of a role in supporting teams in the football league. Of course if businesses in general continue to spiral downward financially, the Premier League clubs will be having to cut back their own operations in the coming years anyway.

      I wonder if for the biggest clubs, there might be an interest in setting up caretaker arrangements with one or more lower league clubs to create something like what exists in Germany. Whilst it wouldn't turn, say, Tranmere, into Liverpool II with that team playing permanently in League One, the club could end up bankrolling a certain percentage of the lower club's payroll, and having oversight over coaching, player development, etc. all serving to lower the lower club's overhead. You would need to preserve the identity of the lower club, I understand, but it could come to this.

      I think that has a better chance of providing meaningful assistance than say, "here's 10 million pounds - now we've done our part."

      No I get that, and he’s an athlete, I don’t expect them to be at home eating Chinese and playing their PlayStation all day, just, the calendar right now, is not the worst time to get it, and he can do easy training (for an athlete) to get him back into it after a long season.

      Good post and let's hope so.

      This year 2020. Something else, isn't it?

      I like this tournament, it’s been devalued over the years but LFC have won it more than any other club and it would be great to win it again I also think it’s a great proving ground For the young lads specifically Williams and Elliott (and regretfully not Brewster)

      Agree, I like this trophy too, we have always done well in the past with it and Shanks and Bob used to excel in it, like you say it's a great little competition to keep playing our youngsters and the experience is vital for them.

      Home advantage is a big plus and although the team will be different on Thursday, the win last night will be at the forefront of their minds, expecting a few goals and another solid win for the redmen.

      Hoping Tottenham get through in this one, can’t stand Lampard, thinks he’s mr big bollocks already the way he holds himself on the touch line and in interviews... needs humbling big style this season.

      We have set the bar in terms of pressing teams as they play out from the back. Arteta said as much after the game.Other managers will use us as a template without referring directly to us.

      Playing out from the back is about possession but there is also the issues regarding constant heading of the ball. This issue has helped lead the game into a more pure game of football.

      Big boot managers like fat Sam have rightly left the game. Used to say you had to kick your way out of the chempionship but thanks to clubs like Brentford and others, that league is now more about skill than it ever was.

      Looking forward to see if we can out play the rest with skill and tactics. Made a cracking start.

      Obviously the dilemma is at centre half. Play the kids at both spots and there’s a good chance we lose no matter who is in front of them. So then you play one of Gomez, VVD or Fab but you risk them fir the weekend. I’d like to see us have a cup run this season but clearly we need another senior centre half if we’re serious about, particularly given the condensed season. I suspect we will see one if the senior CBS in the first half and the other in the 2nd. The rest of the side should be decent enough.
