      Made it thro to the 4th round - woowho !!!
      Was impressed by Elliot, quick, sharp passing, hit woodwork twice, the pick of the kids imho.
      Dejan with a few ropey moments in the 1st half, but Gomez and Milner looked on their game.
      AOC did well enough, Lallana kept things moving - good chance for them to get some playing time.
      Rest of the kids did well too, passed it around well.
      Play em all again in the next round ...

      Ay folks. Sleep well in the knowledge that if VVD gets injured then slipping in at LCB is our mate, Degsy.

      Watching the replay now. Seemed reasonably in control for most of the way.

      Keita was rusty but you can see his quality. Here's to more of him going forward. Stay healthy Naby!

      Elliott and Jones stood out among the kids. Oh and Kelleher totally got away with handling outside the area.

      We get Arsenal and United play Chelsea. EFL rigging the draw?

      Even our 3rd choice GK is a good one. A few years ago, we'd laugh off at this thought. :laugh:

      Comfortable and routine win, don’t think we stepped out of 2nd gear. Kids impressed, well apart from Brewster; think this was a good chance for him but he was very rarely involved in anything, needs to improve his movement and use of the ball.

      Lovren showed that even with a youthful side he will stick out like a sore thumb as the weak link. Lallana and Ox weren’t particularly good either.

      Good to progress out of the 3rd round! Not bothered about having Arsenal next, just means it’s one less team from the top 6 that we have to face later on.

      I have just watched the match and I was very impressed with young Elliott,with a bit of luck he could of had 3 goals.Well done to our young REDS and the old feller Jimmy Milner.

      I was at the game, stood behind the goal and enjoyed it, I thought we were rock solid in defence in the first half, apart from the one slip up which gifted them a good chance, the ball flying over the bar and hitting some poor kid stood next to me. Joe Gomez in particular really impressed me, wow that lad is quick and mops up any potential danger. Other than that we seemed to have ok'ish movement up front without anything to special or wow.
      Second half I got a better look at our attack and there were some nice touches, especially from Harvey Elliott, but they all seemed a bit to tentative and nervous to really have a go at goal, perhaps a case of over coaching and over thinking the situation. It was worrying how many chances MK Dons were creating at the other end so I'm not sure what happened there between first and second half.
      The rest of the players were ok, Lallana played a good anchor role, Ox with a few nice touches same with Keita, I also thought our goalkeeper looked very good.

      All in all I came away from it thinking we have some quite talented kids but no one really mind blowingly good, Brewster and Elliott were good in patches but I now see why Klopp doesn't play Brewster, he is no where near ready for first team football, nor is Elliott.

      Brilliant win, over the moon for the young lads, and great seeing the guys getting back to full fitness who have been out with Injuries.

      I really enjoyed watching Lallana playing the holding role.

      It was a comfortable competent win, although MK Dons could easily have drawn or beaten us given the chances they created 2nd half, I'm not exactly sure what was "brilliant" about it though?

      Agree with Brewster, who was barely in the game, but Elliott was very good. 

      Beat his man on several occasions, passed well, especially the sublime ball to Milner who missed a sitter of a header.  Got into goal-scoring positions and wan't afraid to shoot, even with his weaker foot, twice hitting the woodwork.

      Strange conclusion!

      Anyway, I though it was a decent performance given that most of those guys don't play together regularly.  Though Ox & Lallana struggled to impress.  Keita looked pretty fit and showed for the ball a lot, but took too many safe options when he could have tried running at the opposition, as others have alluded to.

      Thought Jones was very tidy with the ball also; him and Elliott look to have a lot of potential.

      Bring on the Gooners!

      Don't all these youngsters play in the U23's, I would have thought the interplay between them would be pretty slick but there was a lot of misplaced passes yesterday. I always feel that the second string team try to play to technical, emulating the first team but without the skills or understanding. I'm not sure if that is a directive form the coaches or they are trying to copy the big boys.
      BTW I have said that Elliott was the most impressive but I still don't think he's quite ready for first team football, a lot of potential though, an exciting player and next season I can really see him bursting through.

      Yes, they did have chances, most teams at any level will create chances.

      The brilliant part is the win, and the use of the squad, and blooding the younglings. ;-)

      The ox was ok, got better 2nd half. Lallana was fab in the holding role. Nothing too fancy just did the job.

      Play the kids against Arsenal on front of a full house Anfield and they'll smash that cockney sh*te.

      Curtis Jones, Elliot and Hoever were excellent.

      A good mixture like yesterday but won't use the usual starting XI. I But I would bench some of them so if things are not going up the plan, we could change.

      I thought it was a decent enough performance from the second string, controlled the game very well and oddly enough were able to keep a clean sheet for once. It is good to see the likes of Lovren, Gomez, Ox and Ketia gets some minutes under their belt because as the season roles on they will be relied upon more to come up.

      I was impressed with Elliot on the flank, I thought he was a threat and it was a shame he couldn't convert on couple those chances (same with Brewster who had a few golden chances to get him first goal). Like last season FA Cup showing wasn't impressed with Jones (not writing him off as a player but he didn't offer much). I figured Ox would of been more of a influence but nothing was really going off for him and I though Lallana did a decent enough job in the middle of the park.

      Main thing is we got on to the next round, Arsenal at Anfield should be a good tie, expect us to play a couple more senior players (hope Origi and Shaqiri are fit)and make a go it.

      I've now watched the match back on TV and think I can see the confusion, basically most of the good attacking play was first half which I didn't really see.
      I wonder why there was such a drop off in the second half though, defence and attack.

      On to the 4th Round. Yes......hope he gives the kids a shot at home to Arsenal. Apart from a 10 minute spell, where we were under the pump, we controlled that match and should have easily won by more, if it wasn't for that damn woodwork.

      Really impressed with Harvey, Hoever and Jones. My MOTM though went to the warhorse Jimmy Milner. What a signing he has turned out to be. Hope he gets to lift The League Cup as Captain, this season.

      Interestingly, if Shaq and Origi had been fit, they would have started and Elliott and Jones, probably the most effective kids Wednesday, wouldn't have been on from the start.

      That would be a shame but we need Shaqir and Origi for Arsenal with some kids too.
