    Youth would have their chance to win IMO :)

    It'd be quite a match, but it would depend on which frontmen could find their finishing touch (lately results favour the reserve attack) while I'm sure we can all agree the starting back line is still better than 4 youths across the back. Could end a squeaker 3-2 but I"m not telling which side would be up.

    Damn right.

    As for the comparison, I don't even want to think about it.
    The thought did come to mind though. Funnily enough.

    senior team would slap the **** out of the reserves, easy.

    How about an Arsenal U-21 team vs. The Rest:

    The U-21 team would look something like:


    Hoyte Senderos Djourou Clichy

    Pennant Cesc Flamini Reyes

    RVP Lupoli



    Lauren Toure Campbell Cole

    Ljungberg Gilberto Vieira Pires

    Bergkamp Henry

    It'd be a decent match, with the first team just edging it. There'd be alot of goals in there, though. :)

    Right now the senior team would edge it, based on thier current form.
    Otherwise they would smack the sh*t out of the youth's easily.

    i was thinking reyes and RVP to be on the senior team. if they were the senior team would win for sure. gilberto and viera have too much experience in controlling midfields to give it up to a bunch of kids

    but given that reyes is on the team it is hard to say.... reyes isn't as creative as pires/bergie at top form but simply pulling viera/gilberto to one side of the pitch and passing it out to a free man can open up a lot of space if done at the right spot at the right time

    i'd be an enternainting match indeed but i think the 1st team would win.

    1st team would win in my view, simply because the reserve-team defense would not be able to stop Henry and Reyes in my view.

    Depends on the context. If it's a CL match, then the kids.

    To my mind, first-team would win!! but it would be less easy than some time ago!

    Our first team would win easily. Would rip the defence apart.

    Our ladies team would whoop both of them ;)

    wouldn't Cygan's presence on the reserve team stabalize the defence? and surely the speed thing would be even, imo on current form the youth team would keep the game confined to the centre of the park.

    Everton is currently third in the premiership.
    Our reserves team took it to them.
    Our reserves team can be quite competitive in the premiership.

    If you were to field this team in the premiership - it could be top 10 or even be top 5. Seriously full of talent. We will not worry if any of our stars left... hope they will stay loyal to the club and we won't be the next Ajax - selling club
