John Stones: Capped again by England Under-19s

The Tykes defender, who has made the first-team breakthrough at Oakwell this season, played the first 45 minutes on Tuesday night for Noel Blake's side at Telford's New Bucks Head Stadium, where Everton's John Lundstram converted a stoppage-time penalty to seal victory.

"When a lad in any academy starts at a young age and goes right through, especially with his hometown club, it's credit to him and everybody who has coached him," Barnsley's academy manager Ronnie Branson told the club's official website.

"It says a lot for the standard of coaching, he's been here since he was eight and he's had contact with a lot of good people.

"From an academy point of view it shows it can be done. Some academies want to buy in the best talent and progress them from a later age, it's quite unique now with someone like John that he's stayed with one academy for all that time.

"It goes without saying he's got a bright future in front of him. We're proud and pleased for him. He's a smashing kid off the field as well. It's not just about being a footballer, it's about developing you as a person as well."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
