As we have hardly any strikers for Thursday's match, it could be that Reghba is being saved for that. Not convinced about his skill levels but I don't think he will be found wanting physically

....who can tell if he is not going to be another one who steps up in the first team!!!

Much like Vardy he could occupy their back line and puts himself about. Would be surprised if we did not start with Vardy and Reghba gets the last 30 minutes. This is such a big game we need to at least get the best team available to start the game.

Reghba can’t play, ineligible for same reasons as VDC

I really want to see what Reghba could do if he’s playing with players who could feed him like Maddison, Barnes, etc. Hopefully he will get a look in  during preseason.

Drew 1-1, Butterfill with our goal. Will Alves made his debut for the U18's coming on with 13 mins to go. The 18's are slowly getting better, there's been a lot of U16's move up and some of these have even had a sniff at the U23's this season too so it's all good experience for them.

Do you know much about Alves? Where does he play?

He's an attacking midfielder. I don't know much about him other than he won a competition for ridiculous skills and the clips he posts on Instagram of U16 games he just takes the piss. Opposition can't get near him but I'm not sure how we'll rounded he is as a player. He's been in a few England youth squads.

Is Alves the lad who was featured on the BBC Football site doing some freestyle challenge? Looked pretty decent from what I recall. 

Yes

Is Alves the kid from that cringey video (BBC maybe?) that was circulating a few months back?

Yes

It's always hard to tell if a player is just flashy skill or whether he's actually a decent well rounded player at that age.

i’ve seen him first hand his passing is incredible as well as his finishing. he was due to play for the 18s against i believe it was southampton a few days ago but picked up a knock in training.

What happened to the American lad?

played for the U23s the other night

I imagine he means Zach Booth? Hasn't played or been in a match day squad for the under 18s since November

Terell Pennant the only possible winger we have that " might " be able to step up but it's a huge ask. He's made about 2 appearances for the U23's before being called up to be part of the 1st team training for the rest of the season.

Shane Flynn left wing? Already been in a few of the Europa squads, although he has mostly been a left back for the u23s this season, he has mainly been a left winger in his youth career, and I think he only played Left back for the u23s due to lack of numbers

 

VDC and Tavares already in the match day squads, Leshabela probably next in line for the bench, maybe Suengchittawon who is a number 10?

 

Who else have we had with the first team?

Flynn is a decent player but I don't think he's anymore attacking than Thomas. 

 

The others are Fitzhugh (left footed RW/ACM) and the French Thai lad who's a central midfielder.

 

Tavares and Pennant please

Judging by the comms they sent out about extra time show this evening I don't think they will do showing it. I wonder if Chelsea will instead though.
