This is a disgraceful result and i really think that McGuinness should take the full blame here. He has under delivered in every year he has been in charge – ok we won 1 FA Youth cup under his charge but i would have won it with that team! We are meant to have the ‘best’ young players from different corners of Europe but those players did not look all that good to me. This is really disappointing and along with the loss to Carlisle a couple of years ago – again under the stewardship of McGuinness, then surely this is a cause for concern.
In my opinion with the money Utd invest in its youth setup we should be getting to the final and winning this every second year.
I agree with Fred. I thought the defernding was atrocious. And the attacking the team spent more time on both wings passing to each
other than getting the ball into the centre. You dont score goals playing on the wings Burnley played better football and deserves their win.
The success they have had over the years have been down to the quality of the players and not their football and the same goes to the reserves. Joyce always makes a substitute seconds before the end of injury time
Bit harsh to have a go at McGuinness in my opinion.
Yes this group was expected to progress further, but last years group was expected to get no where as they were young and very nearly made it to the final.
The goals came from ridiculous mistakes made by players rather than poor coaching.
If you watch the under 18 in March against Barnsley (away) you will see how good the under 18 team were when they were outplayed and outclassed with pure football and after that game I thought Fergie would be certain to employ their coach but no luck.
We are BURNLEY SUPER BURNLEY !!!!!!!!!! We can fit our whole town in Old Trafford ! A stuuning result !!!!!!!!!!! PS Remeber Robbie Blake !!!!!!!!
