    All good so far! If anyone has a link to any highlights let me know as I can't watch the game unfortunately! Bloody work getting in the way again!

    Hopefully the same will be said of the senior team.

    Love the shouts of Skippy for Will Skipp.

    Chant sorted if he ever breaks through to the first team. He's a bush kangaroo.

    It seems like Poch would absolutely love Skipp. Not only is he a tenacious little fucker with some quality on the ball but he also, and I know this is a cliche, literally covers every blade of grass. He's got through a mountain of work this half.

    Love the look of Shashoua as well. He's got a lovely touch and nice balance when carrying the ball, seems to have the ability to see and pick a pass that others can't as well. The only thing that would hold him back, and it seems to be a concern for Poch, is his size.

    He is reminding of Gerrard a bit when he's on the ball.

    This has been nearly as enjoyable as the first team winning at Everton last weekend. Good show, boys.

    Wish he was Aussie, he'd be starting for the Socceroos senior team with how poor we are ATM.

    I'm not sure I see that yet.

    But he does look like the sort of lad who's weekend highlight is getting home and polishing his boots, before getting on the sofa for MOTD....

    It might be his running style, but the way he is getting the ball then passing off the turn just reminds me of Stevie G

    Marcus absolutely going about this the right way by the way. Working hard and playing a team game while excelling on his own. Looks like Poch has had a word about how he paves a route to the first team to me.

    So, does that group get to play together often, or are they on different teams?

    Looked to be a great performance - with just a few individual quibbles.

    they pretty much all play together in the u23s but with a few older players thrown in.

    Sashoua isn't that short, he's just got a slender frame. But thats something he can work on, much better than Mason was at his age, and frankly in his position its not unusual.

    Size isn't as a big deal as people make though. When Barca where at their peak they were also the shortest side in Europe. What matters is balance, having a low center of gravity and sometimes developing some upper body strength.
