For those saying it doesn't make sense, imagine a teacher dismissing class. Two boys were playing during class, and the teacher wants them to stay to talk. The teacher says "You can go. Not you, boys!" as a way to dismiss the class but keep those boys later. "Sie k├Ânnen gehen. Ihr nicht, Jungs!"

I feel "y'all" is an appropriate word for Ihr... how else is "you" suppose to be plural. I guess I can blame my southern accent for that mistake.

I in actual speech say you, but I agree that it's helpful to differentiate them for language learning.

Such a sentence may follow from an order. But the boys shall not oby that order.

If it is an order, then it should have an exclamation mark. Currently it is so removed from context it does not seem to make any sense.

I think "Not you, youngsters" should be correct. (?)

The only problem is that there is so little context.
