Spare a thought for Max Power. His side Sunderland lose on penalties in the Checkatrade final to Portsmouth, despite him finding the target. But what a game before a crowd of over 85,000. A great advertisement for the lower leagues. A long-awaited day out for the supporters of two once great clubs. Say what you like about the controversy of U21s, the weakened teams and deserted stadiums of the early rounds, at least this final has gone some of the way to redeem this year's competition.

The 'success' of this final means the under 21 teams will be imposed again next season. Not for me thanks.

Some may know this but Andy Mangan who strangely signed for league 1 Accrington at the start of the season, joined Joey Barton at Fleetwood a month or so ago as a coach and also u16s coach.

So as well as Ryan Taylor on the books the cod army have Mangs plus the injured James Wallace. No doubt they’ll go after Jose Baxter soon.

Some suggestion Fleetwood have been linked with Nors too, although would hope he'd pick a better club than them when moving on.
