    . so both teams have been modelled on their respective senior teams :p :oops:

    . sounds like the kids were unlucky ... but on the whole they have done well, it's a shame they won't be playing the final on a bigger stage

    Yeah, did have a bit of a chuckle about the youth proving that they are just as capable of executing the Mariners game plan of conceding as early as you possibly can.

    It is a shame, on the strength of yesterday it looked like they deserved to be in the finals. SFC were beaten all over the park except for their keeper. And they took their chances where it counts most.

    Magoo number 2 with defending only his brother could be proud of.

    Melbourne City hit the post 4 times and should of lead 4-0 at half time but somehow where behind 2-1 and needed 2 penalties to win.

    SFC didn't look that impressive

    Tonyik was that good today for City but has looked great in the seniors.

    Azarni looks really good

    The Ibini clone looked for SFC as well

    I know it's over but a thought on the anniversary of Johan Cruyff's death ... RIP

    "I let all youth teams play the same way, like the first team. I always put the emphasis on learning. Sometimes I had the suspicion the youth coaches were more concerned with winning. They cared more about their own reputation."
    "I cared only about the interest of the club. When a player with talent couldn't defend I put him in defence so he could learn, but that could cost a point. But I didn't care, I was busy developing the player."

    NPL2 boys lost to WSW today blowing a 2-0 halftime lead letting in 3 in 5 or 6 mins. Mariners meltdown from the young lads

    Wow ! :eek:
    Maybe self evidence of why Okon is considering/trialling Michael Stojanovski, a defender from NPL2 North Shore Mariners & NOT one of our own CCM Academy boys.
