Everton U21s win big in Man City goalfest

Everton U21s 6 - 3 Manchester City U21s

Everton U21s put an impressive 6 goals past Manchester City in their bid to get neat the top of PL2 Division 1.

Before the game, it was pretty tight in the top half of the PL2 Division 1 table, with a 3-point spread covering seven teams, including both of today's protagonists. City on 18 points can go top with a win, whereas Everton on 16 points cannot.

The Blues stormed into a 4-1 lead by half-time, with goals from Whitaker (2), Price and Mills. 

Man City pulled back another goal before the hour mark. That stirred Tom Cannon and Francis Okoronko to get on the scoresheet before City pulled another one back and that's how this goalfest finished.

U21s beating City 4-1 at half time. 2 from Whitaker, goals from Price and Mills as well. Interesting.

Great result! I was going to drive down to Finch Farm but the heavy rain put me off (fair weather supporter!). Sorry I didn't go.

Something happening at our club. Something good. Can feel it brewing, forming. Stadium, kids, scouting, attitude…….coyb.

That is a very impressive result with most of the usual suspects getting on the scoresheet.

But it means none of these will be on the bench at Craven Cottage.

It’s called a false dawn Gary. We are masters at it. Unparalleled

Anyone see much of Warrington in action at Fleetwood? If so how is he getting along?

After the World Cup break if Tom cannon still scoring and we struggle in the window he has to be in the first team squad. I’m only a fair weather fan where the youth is concerned but I’d love to see some of these lads really push on in a blue shirt without a loan. I’m sure the coaches know best.

Brilliant result, for the first time in many years we seem to have a crop of youngsters with real potential. Let's hope we see some of them on the bench for the first team in the near future.

Kieran, Lewis appears to be doing well. He's been getting minutes, including starts, since he got there.

It's great to see Charlie Whitaker coming back to form and scoring goals, and Okoronkwo is developing nicely too. Paul Tait is getting the best of the likes of Quirk, Hunt, McAllister and Cannon and Mills continue to score regularly.

You have to be impressed by their recent performances, but again the discussion is around who is ready to step up? For me it remains Stanley Mills as the closest, he's got the build, strength and pace to trouble tiring Premier League defenders if he comes off the bench.

I obviously don't see Mills in training, but in the U21 matches there's little more he can do to impress. Give him some minutes, Frank! 😀

Has Whitaker began to play well again, Phill? Some of us were having a good discussion on another thread yesterday about these younger players, but it suddenly vanished and possibly because it suddenly got sidetracked, and maybe started sounding a bit boring.

I would say Whitaker is getting back to the form which had him training with the first team before his long injury lay-off.

You could see his sharpness in that 6-0 thrashing of Hartlepool. He scored a well-taken goal there, plus one in midweek against Hertha Berlin and two yesterday, that's 5 in the last 5 games for him.

I'm a big Whitaker fan, so an element of bias there!

Thanks Phill, I also enjoy watching Whitaker myself, so hopefully the kid can keep on improving, mate.
