We won something

Hey, we won something this year.

A Youth FA Cup isn't to be sniffed at, especially considering the trophy drought over the past four years. And Youth FA Cups can be a springboard to success; I remember the Man Utd side that won it once, or something like that. I don't know. I can't be expected to remember such details; after all, it's not like a Youth FA Cup is particularly important.

And that's the dilemma. It don't mean nothing unless the kids translate this success to the Premier League. It's thrilling to see them winning something, but. 6-2 on aggregate, 2-1 at Anfield for the second leg.

Only one question - why isn't it a knockout tournament like the FA Cup proper?

actually if we are talking about Arsenal as a whole, the Ladies did the treble (league, league cup and fa cup), and the Arsenal youngsters (the boys) won the premier cup and youth cup (u-18 level). So it would seem that we are getting most things right and doing so in style. The Ladies won the title on the last day but had a goal difference of 80 odd and the youngsters played some special football yesterday and in the first leg to win handsomely :D

True, forgot about all that. Then again, wouldn't you trade it all in for an FA Cup? I would. I'm not sure the kids and the women would, though...
