UEFA Youth League

Started by ANDRECHO,

Our U19’s scraped past a very good Porto side in their UEFA Youth League semi-final played in Nyon this afternoon. The lads have therefore reached the final of this competition for a third time in four years. The tie was settled by three decisive penalty saves from keeper Jamie Cumming after a late Blues equaliser forced spot kicks.

Porto held a deserved 2-1 lead with time winding down. The  Portuguese side will feel hard done by, and Joe Edwards will feel that his team can, and must, play better in Monday’s final against Barcelona. Barça outlasted Manchester City to win a thrilling match 5-4. This despite leading 5-2 at half time against a Citizens side which had been reduced to 10 men after half an hour. Barcelona’s keeper needed to make three good stops late on to stave off a great fight back by the City kids.

Lost to Barca 3:0...

Well in a way, I think its a good that we lost. Kids will learn money isnt all and the loss will be good experience. Its important that not everything is perfect in their world, they need to work harder and keep improving if they want to become great.

cheer up lads, it was bound to happen at some point, cant win them all, its not the end of the world, it hurts to lose but Barca's youth set up is one of the best in the world, 3 final UYL appearances for Chelsea, 2 wins and a loss, the academy is doing wonders for these kids, they will need to learn from it and bounce back, a defeat here is a wake up call. Cheers
