Losing 1-0 after 14 minutes with a Gallagher goal, a deflected shot, and any deflected shot by Liverpool ends in the opposition net, still time for us to comeback.

Dave are you at the game? If so, what are your thoughts on Onyango. Heard him described as "The new Viera" this week

Keiran (3), no not at the game, Onyango is huge and still growing, only seen snaps of him in the youth team games and he looks good.

The fact that he has been brought into U23s matches at 16 years of age tells you he is well-thought-of at the club. He makes his presence known on the pitch, I hope he gets stuck into these lot today.

Good goal from Denis Adeniran. Cutting in from the right. Onyango looking quite decent again. Bit of a soft goal conceded early. Foulds at fault?

Brands sat next to me. Reckons Gordon is the next one to step up to first team.

Somewhat off-topic, but a goal for Josh Bowler on a rare start for Hull.

Saw that the too Andrew. Hopefully a sign of things to come, he looked really good last year and in my opinion would have been better served if he was in and around the first team than on loan I am not a fan of the loan system.

He could be a good player, out wide cutting in. Would certainly like to see him as an option ahead of the likes of Tosun or Sigurdsson off the bench.

Same for Gordon.

So H Kane is playing as the Number 10 for Liverpool. Sly bastards sneaking him into the line-up.

And Herbie Kane scores a predictable late winner...

This is just getting embarassing now. Come on Brands, you are suppose to be making our play the same way completely throughout the club, small gains are a must, like winning regularly the mini derbies. Winning is everything Mr Brands and we are just not seeing it...enough.

We just never seem to rouse enough passion to snatch late draws or winners.

John I think they all showed plenty of passion. Just lost it to a well-taken goal form the rs.

You can't expect the u23s to win the league every year. The team is ripped up and rebuilt every year. The ones who won the title are mostly gone and the replacements are 16-18. Unsworth is building for next year.

The reality is we probably have the best collection of 16-17 year olds right now. So good we're already moving them to u18 and now a few have even played for the u23s.

The key is to get Lewis Dobbins, Tom Cannon, Ellis Simms, Tom Warrington, Bobby Carroll and onyango into the first team. Who cares how many pots and pans they win at youth level. The goal is to make it in the first team.

Throw in Anthony Gordon and I cannot remember the last time we had so many who really can make it.

It's a killer: but in a few hours, far worse. There's loads to consider.

Tomoorrow is massive.
