Noticed it was the 3rd round of knockout stage last night. City U23's went out away at Scunthorpe. Only Leicester U23's remain in the competition out of the Premier League Academies. One thing I did notice was a certain Jacob Bedeau in the Scunthorpe team. Signed on a free transfer from Aston Villa. He was the bury defender bought a couple of years ago, age 17 for a reported fee of £900,000 plus add ons.
After Saturday's wonderful link up play between them I've seen they both played again in the development squad game today v Donny (Dale won 3-0). Hopefully the start of something good down our right side. Just need Matheson to stay and McLaughlin to stay... fit.
Normally with massive cup games like this we get regular Twitter/Facebook updates from the club about how many thousands of tickets we've sold on the first couple of days? Photo's of queues on the carpark,? Nothing.
Just watched the efl highlights and 2 bizarre handball decisions. Peterborough v Accrington where Accrington thought they had taken the lead but what looked a perfectly good header ruled out for handball! Then Plymouth v Orient where a blatant handball was somehow missed for Plymouth's opener.
