    That's a shocking read.

    If true, and it's a detailed enough account with several events to be believable, they both need to see serious prison time.

    Peter Beardsley in deep shit as well. Think he has been fired for racism and bullying in Newcastle's Youth structures.

    Charlie Clancy (AMF) from Chelsea has been on trial with Forest. Scored twice on the weekend. With only 3 confirmed 2018/19 scholars this was always going to happen.

    In the next 2 years we will be looking for some Brereton's, Edser's, Taylor's, Cash's, Grant's, Anel's, Virgil's I reckon.

    How anyone could say he is a racist is beyond me, Let's face it how would you know ?
    Unless he communicated by drawing pictures.

    Hardly been mentioned though, MASSIVE game for the youngsters, leaving work at 4pm, will be there!

    Yes I have watched No Hunger in Paradise and what a good watch it was. A great insight for any youngster who thinks he’s made it at an early age and how important it is to have a plan B. Writing this before leaving for the game tonight which I’m looking forward to. Pleased that Adam Crookes has had his loan extended, fully deserved. All the best to the lads tonight but if it doesn’t work out all is not lost as Ben Brerton will tell you as he had a stinker last year at Stoke.

    Think if they do get turned over we will see a few of them in the 23’s squads in the upcoming games and we will see a couple leave on loan

    Full-time: #NFFC Under 18s 1-1 @LCFC Under 18s (Forest win 5-4 on penalties). Forest progress to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup and face a trip to Blackburn Rovers or Watford.

    Wasn’t at the game tonight due to work commitments followed the game on Twitter and great for the lads to get through on penalties especially playing with 10 men for most of the game. Well done lads

    Forest go through the FA youth cup vs Leicester. Final score 1-1 and won on penalties.

    Had a player sent off after 20 mins so must be shattered, that’s 100 mins with 10 men! Well done lads.

    Only negative about tonight like a few other have said is the lack of coverage surrounding this game have to say I’m very disappointed in our social media team. If anyone on here went who were the stand outs and is it a game that we deserved to win or?

    Wish they live streamed the youth team sometimes, would be nice to see the future play.

    Just got back from this and very nearly defrosted.

    Leicester were the much bigger side tonight, bar one or two they were much taller, stronger and mostly appeared older.

    Was pretty even early on, although Leicester did miss a couple of opportunities to pass and probably score when going alone instead. (Their 11 was a standout)

    Harbottle got sent off, deservedly so really. A ball was played through and he took out the opposition striker. I'm not sure if the striker was going to get it or not, couldn't be 100% eitherway, but Harbottle fouled him as the last man.

    It was obviously an uphill battle from then on. Connor Smith went CB, But we dug in really well, getting to half time.

    After half-time, Smith went to RB and the impressive Jayden Richardson moved to CB. He did brilliantly there, after a hard task marking their no.11. In fairness Smith did a very good job on the no.11 when at RB.

    Second half Leicester got their breakthrough from a corner. They obviously pressed a lot and we had to absorb as much as possible.

    Unfortunately we lacked real place/strength to play much on the counter too. But our goal came from good pressing and Leicester's 'keeper and No.6, both who were uncomfortable on the ball, messing about. Johnson capitalised.

    We did our best to pass out and break, but it wasn't really happening and we had to be resolute and the lads really dug in well, blocking everything they could through to full-time and much the same through extra-time. Soloha the 'keeper made a great save late on.

    Penalties are always a lottery. I feel for the Leicester kid who slipped on the last one which ended up a calamitous miss (and double touch.)

    It wasn't really much of a spectacle in the end, with 10 v 11 for most. But despite the size/weight difference, they put up a real good solid fight and showed plenty of resolve to get through. Leicester did have a couple of chances first half, but not much else bar Soloha's save.

    I don't really want to give ratings to kids.

    But standouts were Richardson who has pace, athleticism, a great leap and seems comfortable on the ball, Danny Preston who played with maturity, Yassine for his work-rate and Brennan Johnson for his hold up play when he had to move up top.

    Appiah/McCormick/Mighten/Bondswell in the forward positions didn't get much of a look in, they were well marshalled and almost bullied all game. Not a game for those guys to shine.

    Everyone put an absolute shift in. Stewart did well at getting rid of everything that came his way after a couple of early slips.

    really delighted for the U18's, being down to 10 men for hours and then being a goal down as well, and against huge fukkking bullies

    David and Goliath

    awesome youth / academy set up, wish we'd commit to the academy and forget the 47 signings Ak is going to bring in and probably leave us in tatters
