Hopefully not an omen!

Could be an omen – but a lucky one. Maybe we are seeing here what could be happening in 3-5 years time at senior level – but with Everton edging it!

A lot of our top young guns are currently out on loan, so holding our own with Man City is a good achievement.

Did Liam Walsh play the full game for Yeovil v Carlisle in the FA Cup yesterday?

Thanks Ray, 86 minutes not bad for his first senior game, hope he did okay.

If you watch the highlights of that game, Dave, on BBC, you can see him feature twice: first going on a good run, giving a good pass and juggling in the box to get off a shot which misses by a yard or two. Then under-hitting a pass in front of his back 4 to present them with a shot that just missed from range.

Ups and downs of life on loan!
