I don't get to read up much on the youth teams. Can someone explain how they ended up in the UEFA Youth league and how the format works.

 

Great to see the youth teams in general doing so well

They won the U-18 league

 

Every team that qualifies for CL has their U-19 (U-18 in england I suppose) team qualified and they play the same groups

 

To this season also the winners of the national leagues for the top 32 countries in europe qualified.

 

Those 32 teams play in 2 knock out stages against eachother. The 8 teams that goes forward from that will meet a group runner up from the CL groups.

 

We are now 1 match from being in that phase (we won 3-0 against Torino tonight)

 

Sorry my english is not the best so i dont know how clear I was :(

 

I think thats how it works anyway

 

Here you have it in writng from uefa

Lady spite got it pretty bang on except the age thing. Teams in Europe (as far as I'm aware) also have U18 not U19 teams.

However, in every team who qualified by winning the league last year, in their U18 team were probably a few players in their final year in that age group.

 

It would be unfair to not let them play in this tournament after they helped win the league and qualify, so the age is U19 in this tournament to allow those players to still get the chance to take part in what they earned for the club

    • Well we only had Ramirez for half a season, with a full season of his second half form then thats a different argument.  I think with Britt starting that season rather than Nugent then we wouldn't have got promoted. We went up on goal difference so literally a point less and we don't go up.  In my opinion Britt wouldn't have been suited to play as a lone striker. He couldn't hold the ball up like Kike and his movement and workrate was nowhere near as good as Nugents.  I don't hate him, I just don't think he's suited to play as a lone striker which is the modern way in football. His goal scoring record has always been decent but I expected more from him for what we paid. 
    • That team had balance, width and creativity with a strong spine. Viva la Karanka
    • Come on  -----------------Britt Adomah----Gaston----Downing -------Clayton----Leadbitter Friend---Gibbo---Ayala---Nsue ------------------Dimi ^doesn't get promoted but with Nugent in there it does? Nugent missed sitters and several 1v1s in the back end of the season  We've finished in the play offs with Britt under Pulis and he scored 15 and assisted 2 as opposed to Nugents 8 goals and 8 assists in an automatically promoted team I just don't understand the hate Britt gets on here, only way people will appreciate him as a player is when he leaves the club 
    • Yes. If we had Roberts, Hoilett and 1 other wide player. Plus a central midfielder/ no.10. I'm not saying we don't need more strikers. We are light in almost every position. But we do need to sort the supply and creativity out first and foremost.
    • maybe its because several big clubs have shown interest, derby, stoke, boro cardiff etc, probs things he can raise the price.
