I think it was me saying Swansea was the first, first team game I didn't get to see.

It was a stupid red cafe shite comment tbf.

We haven't had that top red shite in a few years.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

That's what I was thinking too, especially for that age group

On a side note, scares the fuck out of you doesn't it how much more confident/cocky/aware kids are these days, the night the City game was rained off, we were delayed to, the under 23s were playing Valencia I think it was, and it panned to the kids team up in the stand who'd all been brought to watch, the fashion hair styles and all on their I phones and sitting back all chilled and cocky with their feet up over the railings etc. If you think back even to the class of 92 who weren't even televised, when you finally started seeing them, they would have been 3-4 years older than this team yet they were still nowhere near as cock sure as our kids, nothing phases today's kids, can't work out if it's good or bad!

Yea definately.
If you even watch that documentary Class of '92, it was very different how they had it compared to today. They had to clean boots etc. I wonder how many of them have to stay in digs like they did then. It's a different culture now...obv they have more money and with social media they're nearly becoming "big names" even before they make the reserves.
But tbh I'm more interested in the under 18's now than I ever was before...probably because our first team squad is a mess.

I think some of that if you showing your age, Redz. The stuff Giggs and that got up to shows you they were a bit cocky, a bit arrogant, that they were footballers and played for United. And of course they had a look, a fucking Boyzone like boy band look.

It is what it is. Players these days are softer, fact. Footballers and managers say there's a lot less aggression behind the scenes because we know now that posiive reinforcement works better with a lot of people. If you just abuse and bully a kid, he'll get a complex, cry and be shit or fuck off. But if you big em up, fill em with confidence, even if they're limited, they'll perform better.

Aye I agree, although that boy band and Giggs and Sharpe 'n all, they were definitely over 18, I'm talking about 14 year olds, like I say, I agree, I just don't know if it's good or bad, yeah it makes me feel older than I am lol

Where's the crowd?

I'd love it if we had that to see around where I am... beats the fuck out of paying £20odd to watch the Dons suck wind...

If they did what the reserves do and made a deal with a small local club, people would definitely go, the reserves have to play so many games a season at the senior ground so it's a pity the younger team don't even get anybody really, a ground round them would prepare them better surely than one pitch out of about 10 round them.
