      Liverpool under-18s have much to do if they are to retain the FA Youth Cup after going down 2-1 to Manchester United at Anfield on Monday night. 
      The Reds lost the first leg of the final in front of Rafa Benitez, Alex Ferguson and 19,518 spectators despite taking an early lead through Craig Lindfield.
       
      A second-half penalty from United captain Sam Hewson and an own goal from defender Robbie Threlfall left Steve Heighway's men with a small mountain to climb in the return leg at Old Trafford on April 26.
       
      It was United who created the game's first chance when Febian Brandy broke free on eight minutes only to blast his 20-yard effort narrowly wide of Martin Hansen's goal.
       
      Six minutes later Brandy's strike-partner Christopher Fagan also ran clear, but this time the shot was spooned towards the corner flag.
       
      The Reds, meanwhile, seemed to be settling into their stride and showed no signs of being overawed by the occasion nor the cameras. In fact, Gerrard, Carragher, Reina and Alonso in the directors' box were witnessing some of the best football the youngsters had produced throughout this season's cup campaign.
       
      It wasn't too long before their tidy football paid dividends when Ray Putterill, who's clearly learnt a thing or two about wingplay from Academy director Steve Heighway, supplied a teasing cross for the onrushing Lindfield. The striker bravely beat United keeper Ron-Robert Zieler to head home his fourth Youth Cup goal of the season and make it 1-0 after 16 minutes.
       
      Somewhat stunned, the visitors tried to build up a head of steam but were more often than not thwarted by a dogged Liverpool backline.
       
      The game was being played in good spirit, helped by some common-sense refereeing from Mark Clattenburg.
       
      On 21 minutes a goalmouth scramble teed up Brandy, but his acrobatic effort dropped harmlessly into the Anfield Road hoardings.
       
      Ten minutes later Fagan forced a superb save from the holders' Danish keeper after an excellent run down the left by danger-man Daniel Welbeck.
       
      Despite having more shots on goal, United, without defensive linchpin Craig Cathcart because of a first-team call-up, were frequently made to look vulnerable by some superb deliveries into the box.
       
      Manager Paul McGuinness will have demanded his side make their pressure pay in the second half – and he didn't have to wait long for his wish to be granted.
       
      Reds centre-back Threlfall will doubtless have dreamt about heading the ball in at the Kop end, but what happened on 50 minutes was the stuff of nightmares.
       
      The defender, aiming to nod out for a corner, was dealt a terrible slice of luck when the ball crashed past a helpless Hansen and into the net. United, chasing a record 10th Youth Cup, were level.
       
      To be fair, Steve Heighway's side, who were without the suspended Astrit Ajdarevic, never let their heads drop, and they nearly went back in front on 66 minutes when Jimmy Ryan drilled a fierce shot into the side netting.
       
      Minutes later the impressive Ray Putterill curled over from 15 yards. The Kop was starting to find its voice.
       
      Unfortunately, they were soon to be silenced. Seventeen minutes were left on the clock when captain fantastic Jay Spearing downed Brandy in the box. Hewson made no mistake from the spot despite the best efforts of the Kop to unnerve him.
       
      Liverpoolfc.tv man-of-the match: Ray Putterill.
       
      Liverpool: Hansen, Darby, Burns, Spearing (capt), Threlfall, Barnett, Ryan, Flynn, Lindfield, Woodward (Eccleston 67), Putterill. Subs not used: Irwin, Roberts, Highdale, Parsonage.
       
      Man Utd: Zieler, Eckersley, Evans, Strickland, Chester, Drinkwater (Bryan 74), Welbeck, Hewson (capt), Brandy (James 90), Fagan, Galbraith. Subs not used: McCormack, Woods, Moffatt.

      Well that was a bit of a shame wasn't it.

      Second half the ball just didn't seem to go for us did it. And I feel Jay Spearing was a bit unlucky giving the pen away. He did try pull out of the challenge but it was too late.
      Still another leg to play though. Sure Stevie H will do his homework!

      Anyone go tonight?

      Good attendance that.

      Must be hard when you're young in the red shirt.  I'd probably try and crunch a United player too.  Maybe he had just seen Ferguson in the crowd. Red mist and everything.

      We'll batter them in the next leg.

      Or they can have this, and we'll have big ears?

      He's a bit of a meat-head looking kid that Spearing isn't he.  Wouldn't mess with him.

      By all accounts this was a typical 'Pool v. United game - no quarter asked or given but played in a pretty good spirit throughout.
      Our man at the match (the United message board) summed it up very nearly the same as the report in this thread does. Good to see close on 20K turning out for the youngsters - although I hope that the attendance might be even better in the 2nd leg at Old Trafford on the 26th.
      These kids are the future of both our clubs so they bloodywell deserve to be better supported by today's fans.
      Very good to see a bevvy of Liverpool first-teamers were there last night - it shows the kids that the big lads - and millionaires - DO care.

      This was taken from the Liverpool website:

      Liverpool must win the second leg at Old Trafford a week on Thursday by two clear goals if they are to secure back-to-back victories in prestigious Youth tournament.

      Having read the report after the game it said away golas do not count in this compition, does anybody know why we would need to win by 2 clear goals???

      at a guess....... if we only win by 1 the game is all square! winning by 2 would make it 3-2 to us. whatever the final score is, we need to score 2 more than them to win more cos we're 1 down. if away goals were counting double, then we could win 1-0 and win the tie. as they're not, we can't!

      I'm know mathematician mate but we need to win by at least two clear goals to win the cup because if its only by one it will have been a draw on aggregate. 2-1 at Anfield to the mancs 2-1 at Dracula's Castle for us = 3-3 on aggregate.

      Tomorrow I will be taking you through Pythagoras theory, so dont be late. ;D

      Banksie mate that made complete sense to me, i think? ;)

      Why do they play at Wrexham instead of Anfield? Cos it's smaller and less people go? How far away is Wrexham from Liverpool? Shame it looks like they're gonna get relegated :(

      Good luck tonight Liverpool!! Don't care if it's the blydi 10th team, let's beat the Mancs!!

      I think one of the reasons was to help Wrexham out of financial difficulty, like when we've played pre-season games and have let them keep gate receipts

      The main reason is to play less games on the Anfield pitch, so it stays in good condition.

      Youth Cup Final Second Leg
      Reply #71: Apr 26, 2007 01:54:31 pm
      Good luck tonight lads, here's to comebacks as they try to overturn a 2-1 deficit tonight.
      Its on Sky for those who didnt know.


      Danish goalkeeper Martin Hansen has been ruled out of tonight's Youth Cup final second leg at Old Trafford with a broken finger. 
      Hansen sustained the injury in the warm-up before last week's first leg against Manchester United - but remarkably played through the pain.
       
      However, the Academy coaching staff believe it would be too much of a risk for him to start this evening.
       
      The decision was made easier by the availability of last year's Youth Cup winning keeper David Roberts.
       
      The under-18s go into the second leg 2-1 down, though a single goal victory would be enough to force extra-time because the away goals rules does not apply.
       
      Coach John Owens is confident his young side have plenty of goals in them.
       
      "We can't be too cavalier but we know we have plenty of players who can score. We've done well on this score during the Youth Cup – we got seven overall against Newcastle in the semis," he said.
       
      "In midfield we've got Ray Putterill, Jimmy Ryan and Charlie Barnett who all like to have a go, plus Ryan Flynn and Craig Lindfield who get goals up front.
       
      "We've thought from the very start that the game wouldn't be decided during the Anfield leg, and we're confident this is still the case."
       
      Owens believes a crucial factor in the Reds' chances is how his boys cope with the Old Trafford atmosphere.
       
      "I think they can handle it, but this is one of the imponderables when you're talking about footballers this age," he said.
       
      "Hopefully we'll have some of our noisy supporters there too. But looking at the bigger picture, yes we want to do well in the Youth Cup, but our main aim is to produce players for the first-team. If these boys are going to make that step then they've got to be able to perform on this stage week in, week out."
       
      Swedish midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic is expected to start tonight after missing the first leg through suspension. Lee Woodward will make way.
       
      Meanwhile, United will again be without captain Craig Cathcart, who missed the first leg after he was called up to the senior squad. His absence this time is down to a season-ending knee injury sustained in training last week.
