Kian Pennant is a real talent, let's hope he can continue the progression. 

Not a good time for any of our youth teams at the moment but certainly seems to be a few talented youngsters in the teams to keep an eye on; Pennants, Nelson, Ewing, Braybrooke

 

Then the few who have been in the first team squads lately; VDC, Flynn, Tavares, Leshabela

 

Majority of them probably won’t make it with us to the same level of Barnes etc, but hopefully a couple will

Realistically one or two a year will be able to step up. If apart from those we're able to produce players we can then sell for a a few million to championship teams, we'll be on a good path.

Wanya Marca is another to keep an eye on, I know he's already being linked with moves back to Portugal.

I reckon if Nelson hadn't been injured we'd have seen him in the first team squad lately too, just 17 but my money's on him to break through soon

presumably he and the Pennant brothers will move up to the u23s full time next season as most of their forwards will have aged out?

Bizarrely Terell and Wanya Marcal were training with the 1st team and then have been binned off back to the U18's and not the U23's. I wonder if they were involved in that house party or just more bizarre goings on with the U23's.

With first team players coming back to fitness and our exit from the EL, maybe it was felt that they would be best served playing for the U18’s

But they were playing for the U23's prior to going up to the 1st team training, which weakened the U23's. You'd think they'd go back there but both played U18's on Saturday rather than U23's the night before. Kian Pennant played both 😂😂😂

Henry Cartwright and Daniel Obi came off the bench

 

Leicester took the lead in the 62nd minute through Brandon Cover, but conceded 2 goals in 2 minutes (83rd and 84th) to go on and lose 2-1

Is it the consequences of Brexit that we're an all UK (all English bar 1) team?

Is there some new names on there that we haven’t seen before or just me forgetting?

I don't know but there are definitely a couple missing that you'd have expected to feature - Kian Pennant and Ben Nelson. Especially as the 23's don't have any games coming up.

There seems to be far too many keepers in our youth set ups. Am I right?

Yeah it does seem there’s an obsession with them. Everyone talks about how highly rated each goalkeeper is but we have like 5 of them 😂

Pennant is away with England U16/17's. Nelson could be with Scotland youth.
