2020/21 Under 23's, U19's, Development ... thread

Recommended Posts

Could we have finally found a good striker? 

 

Blyth, Hopper, Hirst, Reghba, Loft... the list of flops brought into our under 23s to fill that void at number 9 has never materialised over the years. Fingers crossed.

Wakeling is almost Vardyesque in style. Looks baffling how West Brom let him go at this point. Similar case with Suengchittawon too.

 

 

Edit: Unfortunate typo therelol

Agreed, both look as if they could do a job on loan for a lower league side this season.

Really impressed with Wakeling second half, once he had been put central.  Not just the quality finish for his goal, but a real handfull, and his overall game looked good too.

Mind you knowing our under 23 set up, he will probably be playing centre half next week.

Excise my ignorance and possible stupid question but are the u23's instructed to play in a similar style to that of the first team? Or is it treated separately? 

 

Don't really follow our development teams but decided to give this one a go

...it  looked at one time for a while that they were adopting the first teams style but they reverted back to type!!!

I don't want to get carried away but Wakeling looks unbelievable

Would have to agree. Seen him a few times. He has come from non-league mens football and just seems to be a natural striker/goalscorer. Hope he is around the first team squad/training.

Thought I saw Brendan from above on the terrace. Taking control perhaps. Wakeling training with the first team shortly?

Impressive performance from the lads! Great way to make our bow on the new training ground with a victory over Man United. Will do them the world of confidence

I was impressed too - great team performance and some good individual ones too.  The 2 fullbacks looked really good..

 

Then I read the comment above about the relative ages and that dulled my enthusiasm.  Party pooper!

...he visits the U23s now and again and I would suspect there is some kind of influence he is trying to impart regarding the U23s!!!

They certainly didn’t seem to be playing so much hoof ball tonight

....Suengchitthawon probably my pick of the players tonight!!!

He seems to have a different approach to the game compared to his team mates and is more positive in his play than the others. Said before Wakeling is someone who will come through but Suengchitthawon just binds our forward play and very good in tight situations.

No surprise Thanawat is doing well tbh. Comes from a decent academy and has played for France at youth level. 

Not what some on here would have told you a few months back. “Got released by a French second division side, can’t be any good” :rolleyes:

Well he was, why didn't the French side keep him?
