Sheriff wins player of the month

James Sheriff has been the first FA Academy player to win an award, earning the League One player of the month award. His solid performances at the back are said to be a large part of why the English Football Association Select have not yet conceded any league goals. Suprisingly, no other players from the side featured in either the regular or youth award.

Terry Venables was also awarded the manager of the month award.

BREAKING NEWS: Bowman to leave FA Academy

In an interview today, Terry Venables confirmed that Jim Bowman would be leaving the FA Academy.

'The rules of the club quite clearly state that a player must be eligible to play for England.' Venables began. 'Sadly, Jim Bowman has appeared in a full international for Scotland, rendering him unable to continue to play first team football with us.'

Venables went on to state that Bowman would be sold as soon as possible, but would not pull on the number 31 shirt for the club again.

Huddersfield 3 (Armfield pen, Kay, Lee) FA Academy 3 (Lfc, Fish, Weah-Sebwe) - League One match #5, att: 15,457

FA Academy were saved from a defeat only in the 87th minute by Caleb Weah-Sebwe's strike. This performance was the poorest so far exibited, and may lead to a run of bad form. Venables is said to be considering his options.

FA Academy 7 (Seddon, Reynolds, Broomes og, Kesina, Ahmed 2, Weah-Sebwe) Tranmere 0 - League One match #6, att: 17,978

Long Tym Toon picked up a dislocated shoulder during the match, ruling him out for 7 weeks. He was unlucky in that the injury coincided with the own goal, perhaps the second time he was harshly not credited with a goal. The team, however, picked themselves up to destroy Tranmere.

Seddon has yet to be rated below 7, superb.

Remember that I am rounding as I hate FM11's '10.0 out of 10' rating system. Still, Seddon has been consistant at the back and teams up well with Reynolds in the middle. You two are looking good to replace Rio and JT. ;)

Being over 30 he wasn't going to really figure for England so took the opportunity to play for Scotland, has he been sold yet? or is he just playing with himself in a dark room on matchdays?

I just bunged him in the reserves. He then got a nasty injury in training, ruling him out for 3+ months. Karma's a bitch! ;)

Citizens embarassed by plucky FA Academy

Wembley was again the site of a cup giant killing tonight as Manchester City were defeated 3-0 by the FA Academy. It was only thanks to Joe Hart, arguably City's best player on the day, who kept the score down as the Three Lions dominated from start to finish. It wasn't until the 28th minute that the deadlock was broken, Darren Russell hitting a brilliant freekick from just outside the area. Alex Seddon followed up soon after with one of his trademark headers. Play then reverted to Hart making save after save, though James David was worked on several occasions himself, proving equal to City's attempts on goal. It looked like it was going to be 2-0 until Caleb Weah-Sebwe slotted home in the 87th minute.

FA Academy 3 (Russell, Seddon, Weah-Sebwe) Manchester City 0 - League Cup 3rd round, att: 44,631

1 James David G

In the fourth round, FA Academy drew Birmingham at St. Andrews. Should be easy after destroying City.

I've hit a big of a snag in that the fecking Under 19s called up half the squad. This leaves me with only a few 'proper' Academy players and the newgens the game put in the U18s to make up the numbers - they are crap.

Now I wish we had the 'ask for postponement' button from CM 01-02. :(

You could always use the treacherous Bowman if he isn't still injured:D
