The FA Cup final and penalties – it’s a frightful combination for Manchester United. This time it was Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup final, but the result was still the same – Manchester United lost.

It’s not all doom and gloom, even though this season has been a bit off-colour for United’s academy side as Manchester City’s kids ran away with the Under-18 league title and United are looking at 4th spot. There is a good crop of kids coming through (Brandy, Galbraith, Eikrem, Hewson, Evans, Ziegler) but at this point they’re a bit too young to considered anything more than just potential prospects.

As I didn’t see the game I can’t really comment on the match, however I will say that from what I’ve read, Liverpool were the better side (ironically, United won 2-1 in the first leg away at Anfield) and on tonight’s efforts deserved to win the second leg. No gripes about losing on penalties – it’s harsh, but that’s life for you, and it’s more important to see kids come back strongly from such disappointments at this age.
