    So we have brought through Kane no-one can argue but it was incredibly fortuitous. Fair enough some people need that luck, and we can continue to point at him and say look how well we've done, but it masks what's gone on since. As people love pointing out we can't bring through players now as we...

    I think it's a fair comment tbf. TOB is a serious talent and I think a lot better than Amos and should always have been fast tracked but as beats said he had never really performed for our u18s and earned anything. It felt more like a promotion to the first team as Kirby left to say, look what...

    I actually think they u23s team is good, but again a lot have stagnated. I think Shashoua could benefit from a loan abroad

    I posted this in the Onomah thread a while back. You're so right. The season Winks didn't get a look in, going away on international duty was the happiest part of that season. It's very demoralising what happens and they itch to play football. Fortunately for Winks it wkrjsd out as injuries...

    I wouldnt but then I dont think Grealish would either. As you know Onomah is more of a CM but with no preseason, slightly injured, New team and first season playing first team football, he put up some decent stats. I didnt look at Grealish and think he would do significantly better than Onomah...

    Agree, I don't see how there will be any difference. We have the exact squad as last year and KWP only got 2 PL starts and a couple of cup games. Don't see why anything is going to change

    SI hasn't been around for last 2 seasons, so I doubt that. Plus I don't think the mods would ban someone for receiving a message

    We came third in this tournament. Schalke won it. We lost to Schalke via a deflected freekick. Youth teams have started the season well

    Of course not but I don't think comparing ourselves to Chelsea is what we want to do, when 95% of our fans have been mocking/criticising Chelsea for the last 5 years with regards to how badly they treat their academy and never give chances. A lot of people would have having to eat humble pie as...

    Ye I saw he posted on his instagram. Impressive acheivement when you consider a) he's a defender who rarely get noticed, though I recall Eyoma and I think Tangnaga have won POTT awards before, b) he was playing up an age group and c) taking into account @Matecheck info he was competing with...

    Don't think so. I've only ever seen a few 'dirty' games at youth level, not a constant cynical disruption, as I don't think coaches encourage it

    Good game this. Well-weighted pass for the 2nd goal by Matthew Craig, and lovely little assist from Michael Craig for his brother who finished excellently in the last minute to win. Both 2 footed, really like them. John is always excellent and I can see why England like Lusala very competent...

    That and the only player that featured from the academy, that I and others have suggested should get fleeting opportunities in the first team is Skipp. It's not like anyone thought they should all be playing for the first team, and tbh I don't think it has made an ounce of difference in Poch's...
