Consecutive Thursday nights were taken up tackling Ajax in a somewhat haphazard manner in the highly coveted Europa League.

Buckle up girls and boys it’s getting serious in the FA Youth Cup! Tonight promises to produce real barnstormer of a match as Manchester United host Charlton Athletic at no less than the Theatre of Dreams.
