Liam Keen has given his reaction to some news that has now emerged involving Wolves’ upcoming FA Youth Cup semi-final tie against Manchester United.
The Lowdown: Semi-final booked
The Midlands club advanced to the semi-final of the Cup thanks to a 3-1 win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, in what will be the first time that the youngsters have reached this stage since 2005.
Should Wolves have hired Lage?
Fans will now be able to watch the game for free, while there will also be subsidised coach travel, with the £3 paid donated to the Feed Our Pack project (The Express & Star).
The Latest: Keen reacts
Taking to Twitter, journalist Keen has now given his reaction to the news, claiming that it is an ‘excellent’ idea from the Molineux faithful:
“An excellent idea to get as many fans down as possible to Old Trafford next Wednesday.
“A big day for an exciting group of young players.”
The Verdict: Thinking about the fans
This initiative from the Wanderers shows that they are clearly thinking about the supporters, which they should be appreciative of.
It gives them a chance to see who exactly is excelling from the Academy, and who has a chance of being promoted to the first team under Bruno Lage – perhaps one or two of those participating in Manchester will follow the path set by Luke Cundle in recent months.
Nonetheless, it presents a chance to get to the final of the competition and boast some silverware for the club, and so the team will need all of the support that they can get on the day in order to help them push through.
