Anyone going to watch this? It's going to be streamed for free on https://faplayer.thefa.com/live/all?tea ... res-events#

We've some decent youngsters and it should be a good watch. I'm hoping a few of these lads end up in the first team, Jurado, Mainoo, McNeill and Garnacho have all been tipped to make the step up....

I'm watching. Looking forward to this more than I have a first team game for months.

Haven't they sold more than 60k tickets for this?

Fans want to watch the kids rather than the shitblokes in the first team

Delighted for those lads. Garnacho needs a game on the last day.

I saw more fight, desire, energy and pride in wearing the shirt in one game here than I have all season with the first team. Some of the first team players were there - I hope they feel suitably shown up.

It was only a £1 to get in and it was at Old Trafford but don't let that take anything away from it being a record crowd for a Youth FA Cup final.

Garnacho looked good, reminded me of a 17 year old Giggs in how he loves to run with the ball at his feet. Once he's got stronger he'll be fucking decent.

Jurado also looks a decent RB and Mainoo showed some good energy.
