Title: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Red Frog on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 13:56:33
Canít find the link for the livestream. When and where can someone who has far less going on in their lives than me, and who wants to get out of doing the gardening more than me, and who is a much more desperate footy druggie who needs their Saturday afternoon fix more than me...

Anyway, that theoretical person, where might they watch this?

It's a 2pm kick off, I think it'll appear on the YouTube a bit closer to the kick off time - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0AktHYTM_3ck3ND-ecdTcg/videos

Cheers for the heads up I thought it was a 3pm KO, saw thelink earlier on the OS Twitter feed.

Huge game for Town playing against a much bigger academy than ours.

Thank you. Um, on behalf of those no-lives who might need this information.
Speak for yourself! gimme no life any day!

That's a wonderfully level fixed camera angle  :Ride On Fatbury's Lovestick: Either it's being filmed from a boat or there is no spirit level in that tripod :)

It sounds like they are playing with a football from the 1960, the echo is so loud!

Oh I'm glad Cowmeadow's playing. Exactly the sort of west country name we should be recruiting.

I can't tell if those are stickmen or Subbuteo players out there. Or Under-9s perhaps.

Sounded a great idea for the afternoon, but yeah, gonna go feed the ducks instead.

Town showing some really good movement in midfield and up front, a little loose at the back though so far.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 15:13:06
Town take the lead from a corner.

1-1 slip up in defence slotted in from 5 yards out.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Red Frog on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 15:22:34
Defence got a bit bullied there.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 15:25:14
The left back and centre back got ina  bit of a muddle, it may have even been an OG by the other Town CB, so difficult to see from 2 miles away!


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy

More flowing passing than Iíve seen from the first team all year.

Going forwards we are playing some really good football, its just the final cross seems a bit wayward, very entertaining football by us for sure.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 15:31:35
The Ipswich lads seem a bit taller and stronger than us, bullying us a lot more but we have quicker players with better close ball skills and dribbling from what I can see.

The black Ipswich right winger seems a handful, he set up the goal and has put a couple of good crosses in already.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 15:47:11
Pretty decent game TBH so far, Town playing some entertaining attacking football at times.

HT 1-1


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 16:05:04
2-1 to Ipswich not long after KO.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Red Frog on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 16:06:10
Bit like the sort of goal weíve been conceding all season.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 16:09:45

It was quite a soft header from a soft cross with the keeper not making much of an effort to get to it....sounds just like it!

TBF from this distance it was difficult to see fully.

Post by: Ticker45 on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 16:44:09
From what I can see is that we have very good approach play but lack that final touch. Sounds familiar.

3-1 to Ipswich after a bit of pressure and a couple of corners not cleared.

Thats pretty much as I see it too and a weakness in defence caused by injuries to 2 key defenders today.

Been a very entertaining match though TBF.

I remember mentioning it with regards to keepers in another thread but in general we do seem to outmatched physically in a lot of the youth games Iíve seen us play. No idea why.

Not sure how many youth games you've seen as to whether that's a representative sample but in relation to today's game,worth noting that Ipswich are a higher category Academy (Cat 2) than ours (Cat 3), and have won 8 of their last 10 league games playing at a higher level than our 18s do, so this was always going to be a bit of a mismatch. In that context, agree with PV thought the lads gave a good account of themselves and generally competed well.


Title: Re: This Youth Cup thingy
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 17:49:44
Considering the gap between the teams it was a good performance by Town youngsters against a far more experienced Ipswich team.

We played some good passing football and quite swift in turning defence into attack.

A decent performance by them they can take credit for.

Fair fucks to him, did he play today in their win?

EDIT:
In answer to my own question, yes and played well it seems.
