No worries pal! 

Well it's essentially the final nail in the tavares coffin isn't it. Good management if you ask me, gave him two games, hasn't impressed so he's been told he can either have the loan or keep plugging away in the 23's/or leave.

really depends on what position he's referring to. i was under the impression that tavares is more in the deep-lying mold of tielemans rather than further forward like maddison

Pretty brutal indictment there for the academy and yet theres very little recruitment that's taken place for the U23's in the last year. I know we have an abysmal record at signing 17-20 year old players for our U23's but with this recent transfer rule change I was so surprised we didn't follow other clubs with a huge recruitment drive last summer.

 

Callum Wright scores a lot of goals from central midfield, he really needs a loan move.

Very brutal, hopefully will lead to some changes within the academy

I thought Leshebela might get a chance - but obviously they don’t think he’s ready. I had quite high hopes for him, but it looks like he’s not going to breakthrough. 

Same here...a shame..:cry:

U18's 2-0 up at half time Terell Pennant with both goals. He needs more opportunities in the U23's as he's the only winger we have at that level, he's far too good for U18 level.

4-1 now Pennant hattrick and Fitzhugh got one

Both wide players and neither of them feature in Beagleball. The U23's need to start mirroring what the first team play, its baffling.

Both should be more involved for u23s but we’ve got Wright and Leshabela in the way, both having spent 3-4 seasons at that level now without a loan.

 

However I used to think if a players doing well in the u18s then it’s a good sign but I have doubts now. They may only be performing well in the u18s because like the u23s we’ve probably got the oldest team in that age group seeing as it takes forever to be promoted. Nothing looks like it’s going to change though.

Will Alves not yet ready for the U18's? The clips he puts up of his games for the U16's are an absolute disgrace. I'm surprised he's not banned for what he does to the opposition. Not sure how much of a team player he is but his skill is ridiculous.

Doesn’t Callum Wright play attacking midfield? He’s obviously deemed not good enough or ready.

Callum's 20 and much improved from the last time I watched him.

Assuming this is in the context of us being after an attacking mid

Does anyone else find this bit pretty damning? This bit specifically:

 

"My first look was in the youth sides, but we don’t have someone there at the moment"

 

It kind of screams how disjointed the whole youth setup is to the main team which to be fair a lot of us have feared for a long time.

 

It's as if Rodgers had to go and ask or have a look at where people were at as a reaction rather there being any plan.

 

To be fair Rodgers and his team have done an incredible job and their time must be devoted wholeheartedly to first team activities but this kind of disjointedness needs addressing IMO.

Feel it’s a pretty bad sign for the current U23s, that whilst most tiger teams have at least given a couple a slot on the bench, Brendan would rather stick Fuchs on the bench than have an attacking option from the youth team. Zorya is the only time we’ve had some involved

End of that section Wakeling suggests there is a clear link up between U18s and First Team playing style. I think it's just going to take time as they graduate up to the U23s and we see some promise start to shine through.
