Title: The u23 thread
Post by: Jimmywhack on January 31, 2017, 11:07:57 PM
Seems to be getting more and more interest lately regarding how they get on, signings etc so a thread maybe nice to keep upto date

I'll kick it off with this assured pen last night

Got a message on twitter about this, I have put it to the fans forum to see if there's anything we can do to persuade for that to happen, it may already be in the planning though.

Liam Walsh has looked a tidy player whenever I've seen him too.

City won earlier to cut the gap to 3 points. Our U23s are in action against Arsenal, and just went up 1-0 in the 86th minute through Nathan Broadhead. Looks like that's the final, so we restore the 6 point lead atop the table!

Looks like it. Southampton, at Manchester City, at Derby, Tottenham, at Chelsea, and Liverpool. The City game is massive, as we could potentially open up a 9 point gap with four games remaining, and conceivably wrap up the title the following match.

Is he a big lad? What we seem to lack at the minute are commanding presences and height. Holgate looks good but not the height to be a commanding centre half, Williams similarly. Mori needs upgrading but we lack proper physical presences. Schneiderlin has helped in that respect.

Pennington coming in for some serious praise.

Always impressed me when I've seen him play. He got an injury at the worst possible time.

I think he'll be in contention of Baines gets injured.

I do worry that he and browning may get lost in the shuffle.

Pennington is right footed though ain't he? I'm not sure if he'll come into the same category as Galloway/Garbutt/Robinson on the left.

Galloways out on loan.
Garbutt trains with the under 23s

Pennington is already very versatile so I think he could perform the role if required

Only seen him limited times but I dont think he will make it at us, seems the type that will end up going to a Championship team and could then rise into becoming a premier league level defender. He isnt massive, not small either but I'm unsure whether he lacks a bit of pace but certainly seems like he knows how to defend when ive seen him at various levels.

Given we are heavily linked with Keane and VVD, looked like we tried for Manolas etc a major centre half signing is one of our priorities. If we get that signing, have Williams, Mori, Holgate ahead of him then it's hard to see where he will get many games. At his age 22 it is getting to the point where he is that far down the order that he himself must be thinking is it better to look down the Forshaw route and go and play week in week out at a lower level and build a career.

Let's get him out on loan to a decent championship side so that we can put him in the shop window and get some proper money for him then. Letting his contract run down after a stint at somewhere like Oxford is what the old Everton used to do with our half decent prospects.

Much rather we do right by the academy graduates that don't make the grade here and look to set them on the best career path for themselves rather than worry about making a few million pound here and there.

We've a duty of career after all and still need to help them make the most of their career and talent as an when a decision is made to move them on.

Which is why striving to send them out on loan at the highest possible level is the best we can do for them. I clearly don't know the ins and outs but players like Ledson for example, who was highly rated by everyone not just within the club but at international level, finds himself at Oxford and others like him find themselves lost in the lower leagues. Whereas the shite's obscure reserves find themselves still at a decent level when they move on.

I think the more professional setup we have now will reap dividends not just for us but for the kids as well.

No sending them to the club that offers them the best possible opportunities of advancement is the right thing to for them, you only have to see how Galloway has fared this season at West Brom to see that. If he'd have gone to Newcastle or Derby it's likely he'd have came back in the summer with 40 odd senior games under his belt rather than having spent 40 odd games sat on his backside. Sadly we decided to prioritise the money over the players advancement and we and him will be worse off for it in the long run.

I can't believe youre making a comparison to the shite as well. Our academy has proven far superior over the last 20+ years in comparison to theirs. We've produced footballers fit for the premiership time and again in that period, saving ourselves multiple millions in the process, as well as launching dozens of local kids into professional football.

It's a ridiculous point, the sale of Wayne Rooney alone has probably eclipsed whatever the shite have gained from their graduate sales in the last 20 years, that's before you factor in the fees for Rodwell, Anichebe, Vaughan.....

All we need to do is carry on doing right by individual like we have been, it's clearly working.

Do right by each and every graduate and don't treat them as pieces of meat.

There was nothing wrong with the Galloway loan in principle, he'd be getting valuable experience at the top level under a defensive manager. He started the season playing in the 1st team but a run of poor form and the failure to put in a recall clause meant it wasn't as beneficial as planned. It was definitely worth a shot.

As I said, the new setup we have across the whole club will benefit everyone concerned now from top to bottom.
Title: Re: The u23 thread

What apart from the simple fact Pulis has no history of developing young talent?

He was taken in as back up when they had an injury crisis and as soon as senior players were fit they took his place. It wasn't to do with form that he was dropped, because Galloways form was fine, in fact they did quite well in the 3 games he started in if I recall correctly. It was just a poor choice of club and just because they're a premiership club, a "big club", shouldn't come into it for what should be obvious reasons.

I'm also pretty sure you can't place a recall option when it's a long term loan is between two premiership clubs.

Common knowledge that Galloway was struggling during his minutes there and in general West Brom fans don't have a fucking clue why they signed him.

It takes three to tango. They wanted him, he wanted to go, we wanted him to prove that he's Prem standard. Let's get the deal done.

I don't remember anyone moaning that he went there, with many enthused that it was smart business. At the end of the day it's Galloway' a fault that he can't overtake Chris Brunt as West Brom's left back.

Seems like someone continues to make shit up just to argue with people on the internet.

Re: Galloway, I think it's pretty evident (with the benefit of hindsight) that a move to the Championship would have been better for the lad. He's not quite Premier League week in week out standard yet, christ he came to us from MK Dons... that's a big step, especially for a defender. Getting regular games for Newcastle or Derby etc would have been hugely beneficial to his development, as well as confidence.

At West Brom he's behind some good players in that West Brom team, guys who are having a great season. There's no shame in not being able to force his way in. Neither is he a left back by trade. We played him there and he looked alright but he's a centre back. Given Pulis' penchant for absolute cloggers at the back does Galloway actually fit the mold?

More realistically West Brom saw a cheap option of providing cover for their defence. If we are interested in the development of the player and see him as a long term option this isn't good for us. Neither is it good for the player.

Perhaps we don't see his future with us? Perhaps we were lead on by West Brom and this was their intentions all along? Perhaps Pulis simply doesn't rate Galloway as much as he thought he did and plans have changed?

If we do see his future with us, then West Brom was the wrong option. That much is obvious.

Sorry I cannot see your point ,if the u23's win the league then it will instill a winning mentality that can't be bought and would far outweigh any -well let's be honest here ( no chance ) of going higher in the prem

"Regaining"? What the hell are we talking about? Lookman and Davies are first team regulars, there's been the one game where Lookman didn't even come off the bench, but other than that, they're playing in every game.

Would it help them develop a winning mentality by winning a kids competition nobody cares about? Or would it help the kids that the "big boys" come down and win the league for them? How?

And what sort of message would that send out anyway? "You're nice lads but we don't trust you to win the league on your own, so we've brought in some help for you."

Let them bounce back after a poor performance and win it under their own steam. They're more than capable of it.

That, and only that would be of any use to them as professionals.

Well I see the point you are making ,let me clarify it for my sake . First you think that it is a competition that no one cares about ! ask the lads and Unsy .Second you think that them playing against kids would be a "drop down" for Lookman and Davies ! That is what they are and they most probably will not hold down a regular place yet anyway .Thirdly you also think that them playing two games is going to change the achievement for the u23's ! They must be already pissed because they had Niasse scoring a few goals and Davies played a lot of games for them already .Thought about this whilst writing and it seems you don't understand

I'm still struggling to see what exactly Holgate will progress to be. He's not got the physique to be a centre half really but he looks decent in a back 3, which doesn't lend itself to much game time. He could probably mould himself into a Kyle Walker type player who's more competent defensively but then Coleman has got plenty of miles left on the clock. I dunno.

No these players have been part of our very successful defence this season. You'd think they'd spent the season conceding goals and shitting in everyone's kettles the way people on here talk about them. I'm not talking about a 6 game competition where you only play 3 sides of similar quality

Joel, Williams and Mori have all been part of our success this season. That doesn't mean we shouldn't sign better/competition but it probably does mean claims that they are shit are wide of the mark and comments like "I hate him" a little odd

Well, saying that you hate a player who tries his best is a little odd, whether they're any good or not.

And I certainly don't sign up to the whole good-shit spectrum stuff at all. You can't reduce a player's ability to just one number representing his quality.

The way I see it (and I'm probably wrong) is that Williams and Mori are quite dependable up to a point. But if you put pressure on them beyond that point, they crumble. Like Mori against Spurs, we know his passing ability is virtually non-existent, which is normally not a massive deal, except when the opposition targets it.

So it is quite possible that we'd be better off overall with defenders who aren't even as dependable against (for want of a better word) "lesser" teams but their performance degrades less dramatically against tough opposition.

Hmm, that does look quite different. But maybe it's just a general reflection of how poor we were. Surely, Williams's forward passing must have been similarly wayward.

Alderweireld failed with quite a few of his forward passes, but we put absolutely no pressure on him. And he still succeeded with more.

Forget the fact Williams only passed the ball about 30 times compared to Mori playing it 60ish?

Exactamundo, my dear @Ross (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2316). It is precisely what I'm talking about. They were happy for Mori to have the ball and give it to them. Thank you for confirming it. :)

Did you bother seeing the pass completing stats between Vertonghen and Mori?

No, because they are meaningless for central defenders, seeing as they mostly pass between each other. As everybody who knows anything about football knows.

It's always better to believe your eyes rather than relying on the narrow sliver of information these boiled down stats give you.

You can't use how many passes someone has over the other centre half when Spurs clearly left mori open to force us to him and closed down options to get it to other people. Centre half passing % should be very high as most of the time it's to their centre half partner, keeper or midfielder a few yards away.

i haven't reviewed the stats but I don't need to remember the number of times mori put it straight out, easier passes didn't go near men. One of his problems is he seems to have grand ideas he is a footballing centre half so instead of when he is stuck with no pass on and under pressure just playing the percentage ball of say putting it in the channel he tries something he shouldn't.

Must be getting told to play it, can't see Koeman not just seeing his arse after the second or third one.

jags Williams and him are all guilty of the feckless punt, Williams even cleared a ball directly into the middle of the pitch at the weekend.

I can see unsworth getting a managers job in the near future.

Stubbs got the hibs job doing a much worse job.

Obviously I'd like him to stay and continue his good work but it'll be interesting to see how he gets on.

I've wondered for a while why there isn't a loan system for coaches like there is for players.

We could send unsy somewhere for 2 years for example.

It'd be cheap for the hiring club as they wouldn't have to pay full manager wages, there wouldn't be potential compensation packages etc. should things not be working out and they'd have access to up and coming coaches from the top clubs.

The coaches would have to take a potential hit on what they might be earning if they were working independently (outside of the loan system) but they might be offered more opportunities if the financial risk is lower and therefore gain more exposure.

Meanwhile we would get to see these coaches in the real world.

I think part of the reason may be that there's still a need in England to think that your manager might be there for 5-10 years and therefore a short term loan isn't ideal. But I think everything is moving away from this so maybe it will happen?

I think conflict of interest is probably the biggest one. A player going out on loan can't really change much. A manager has quite a bit of influence.

Yes maybe.

You could limit it to clubs outside of your division although there'd still be potential cup matches to consider.

I'd be surprised if that was the reason it doesn't happen though.

Dowell is definitely someone worth keeping on until he's 22/23 even if it's not obvious that he's going to make it.

Much like Ossie, that type of player who isn't that fast needs time and matches to appreciate what they need to do to get round this.

Hopefully we can find him a club on loan who will play him all the time to get him some of that experience.

He looked a class above when I watched the under 23s the other week.

His touch, passing, and vision was on another level.

But, his lack of physicality will let him down at premier league level.

Needs a loan out next year in the championship.

Technically though it's all there.

With 3 matches left, we're 5 points up on City. Unfortunately, the next round of fixtures is 4 weeks out. But a win at home vs Spurs gives the U23s the title if City fails to win. A draw coupled with a City loss would mean we would finish at worst level on points, with a superior (but not quite insurmountable) goal differential.

Unsy said he's grown in height and weight this year so maybe he's a late developer. He's just got that languid style that some people just don't take to, similar to Mesut Ozil.

Maybe I should have elaborated, but I never released I could have such a compelling effect on the lad.

How he plays and some of the goals he has scored reminds of Le Tiss but with more of a swagger, albeit at a completely different level. So I enjoy watching him play partly because he reminds me of another player I enjoyed watching in the past (who was a lazy bastard). So much so that I did indeed decide to watch some of the old Le Tissier goals from back in the day. 

In addition, I also think he has the look of a young Lee Mavers about him, and although I'm not expecting him to write the next 'looking glass', I did put on The LA's album last week.

Everton are in talks with Nottingham Forest over a deal for teenage midfielder Brennan Johnson, as the club step up their search for the country’s leading young talents.

Johnson, 15, is the son of former Forest and Ipswich striker David and Everton have seen a number of bids rejected by the Championship club.

Everton want to sign the England under-16 international this season but have been told to pay around £1million, with director of football Steve Walsh now expected to enter negotiations. The deal could go to a tribunal if Everton fail to agree a fee.

Assume it's the Chalobah that's playing for Chelsea in there too.

It's very hard to track player potential at national level for those age groups.

Although I think these are important games for the u19s so they may have requested those two for example.

It's also possible in the younger groups they are trying to keep people more in line with their actual age groups in unless they are going into the senior team. I know the FA mentioned that's what Spain did when they were winning loads of younger tournaments in the 2000s and then they went and won the 3 senior tournaments from 2008-12.

So they may think it is more beneficial for players to stick together and get the experiences of playing every age group rather than keep shifting people up and down.

Besic is redundant in that midfield. Williams is the destroyer, Walsh dictates the pace, and Besic does a little bit of both without really adding anything in particular. We'd be better off with Charsley in his place (or even in Williams' place) for those late, well-timed runs into the box. I understand that we're trying to get Besic back to full fitness but we should also be trying to win the league and Walsh/Williams/Charsley have all been stalwarts for Unsworth at various points. (Also, I feel pretty meh about Besic being back. I think he's another that has too much to learn to ever reach the required level, though it does make sense for Koeman to get a good look before he moves him on.)

No complaints about Calvert-Lewin or Lookman. They need games so it's fair to slot them in when they aren't involved with the first team.

Also... Galloway is back?

Edit: And yes, it's dumb for me to pick holes in a U23 team, especially given that Unsworth clearly knows what he's doing. I'm aware of this.

So impressed with U23s, I reckon there has to be 5 or 6 at least who will make it in the top 2 divisions for sure, lets hope they turn out to be of the elite and in our first team.  Loved Mo Besic's game as well, great to see him back (but I could be biased). With Coleman's injury, surely Kenny has to be given an opportunity sooner rather than later, right?

I would assume there are fairly strict safety rules on crowd admission to a stadium like Goodison Park, and possibly one of them is that you can't just let people in without keeping track.

.............from The Echo <<<<<<<<<

Blues U23s hope for huge crowd

verton are hoping to attract a crowd of 20,000 for the night they lift the Premier League 2 trophy.

The Blues’ under-23s were confirmed as champions last night as second-placed Manchester City lost 3-2 to Liverpool at Prenton Park.

Everton have an unassailable six point lead heading into their final game of the season at Goodison on May, 8 - against the Reds.

The club have announced that the game is free entry for all supporters and coach David Unsworth wants his side to finish the season with a flourish in front of a bumper attendance.

Unsy said:

We have a massive game at Goodison and I’m sure there are going to be around 20,000 there.
“So we need to finish off in style when we lift the trophy.”   >>>>>>>>>>>>>

How much do we think this means/doesn't mean then? Was listening to a journo, Mike Calvin, on the Echo podcast the other day who has just written a book on youth football saying that the PL2 is basically a load of old shite, and largely ineffective in producing the level of football and players needed to break into Prem teams. He was saying that's why so many clubs loan their best prospects out.

Well we've already had a couple of them come through to the first team.  At least a few more that look like they could make the step up too.

Lets face it, it can't do any harm.  Its better that these players are playing regularly and its nice that they're winning things together with the Everton mentality than spread out all over the country at different teams on loan.  Could be building a future spine of our team.

Course, you'll never win anything with kids ;)

How much do we think this means/doesn't mean then? Was listening to a journo, Mike Calvin, on the Echo podcast the other day who has just written a book on youth football saying that the PL2 is basically a load of old shite, and largely ineffective in producing the level of football and players needed to break into Prem teams. He was saying that's why so many clubs loan their best prospects out.

Don't mean to put a downer on things, because I'm buzzing for the lads, but it did give me pause for thought.
..................there are 2 divisions of 12 teams each. Only 15 of the current PL have entered teams
Not surprisingly ,the top 7 in the PL2 is the same clubs as the PL with the strange exception of Sunderland instead of Man U. I think it's useful and it's the nearest thing there's been to an old fashioned reserve league like we used to have years ago.

You can never quite tell, can you?

However, we've already had three players in DCL, Davies and Holgate become permanent fixtures in the first team, Pennington coming in, as well as dowell, Kenny and Connolly playing last season, Galloway too.

All looking very adept at premier league level.

Granted, the challenge comes when you have a run of games and try to hold your place down but the signs are very promising.

Some of them will make it here, some will fall short but still have good careers in the premier league and they're varying different factors that will come into player. For example, I'd say dowell is the most technically gifted player we've had in the youth ranks since Barkley, but he strikes me as someone who's not quite good enough to make the step up. Then there's someone like Davies, who isn't as good on the ball bit just looks like a premier league player.

One things for sure, it's the most promising crop of youngsters in the country at the moment and it's great to be able to call upon such talents when needed.

Also, dare I say Roberto Martinez deserves a semblance of credit?

Also, the standard of reserve team football today is a lot better than it was just a few years back.

It was played at a snails pace a few years back. Now it's a geared a lot more to mirror premier league football.

It's hard to tell because you could get lucky that the specific group (as its age limited there's always a regular turnover of personnel) of players happen to gel well together and that's why they're more successful than a team with potentially more talented individuals.

It can't do any harm, winning of course, apart from maybe creating unrealistic expectations that we'll have 5 or 6 players in the first team / squad soon.

Not U-23 specific, but there was a great piece on the OS the other week about the Academy and how we bring youth through - the line about how we've expanded our scouting network caught my eye:

In the past two-and-a-half years, the national and international scouting network has expanded from nine scouts to 109 working across the UK and at all major international youth tournaments.

The goal, now achievable, is to scout every team of each of the 92 Football League clubs from Under-9 to Under-16 every season; effectively to know every single professional youth player in the country.

Kind of like City do with scouting everywhere but they seem to throw obscene amounts of money at everyone, set them up in a private school, look after their parents and they still can't even get even one in their first team.

Mate of mine his kid has been offered a place at their academy with an offer to pay for his private education and all kinds of other incentives. It's tempting for my mate to recommend he take it as even if he doesn't make it, which is likely, he's had access to an education and experience he'd otherwise not have been able to get close to.

Isn't that what you have to do now? That's what Liverpool got in trouble for not doing.

If you want to offer one kid free school as a deal sweetener cos he looks the dogs bollocks then you've got to offer the same to every kid in your academy.

Great for the kids, and not like the football clubs can't afford it.

Hasn't worked out too great for them so far, throwing money at every bit of talent they spot. City just hoover up every kid who stands out in the whole area and hope one of them turns out to be a star. Have done for the past decade. Nothing even makes the bench, barring Iheanacho, and even he's been sidelined now.

They're a strange club who are kind of lost in who they are and what they are trying to achieve.. They spend vast amounts on their academy and youth recruitment but then give their managers unlimited funds to buy a trophy. I know a few people on their coaching staff at that level and they're a bit disillusioned with what they're expected to achieve and where the continuity is from one level to the next.

Although we only just beat them to the U-23 title it looks like we're miles apart in the model we operate. Probably by necessity but still, at least kids can see the career progression.

He's got a point though. We've already seen five kids step up to the first team this season, with varying success, and they'll all probably stay there for next season. To make the next jump to a top 4 challenge we need players who can make an impact and win games not just take part in games. That costs big money though. Over to you Steve.

Said this at the game on Sat.

We've got no guarantees as options on the bench in the attacking areas.

It's good for youngsters to play ahead of people like Kone or equivalents as they'd be wasted minutes but if we're going to make bigger strides more quickly we need players who you know are going to be able to produce.

In reality our front 3 has Lukaku as a natural and performing fit; Barkley who has found a niche on the right and improved his decision making and creative play at home but still doesn't score enough; and on the left has been a rotation of players who for varying reasons haven't been good enough often enough.

That's without the plan that we'd have 2/3 subs who theoretically should be challenging the 3 starting players for their places.

So then bear in mind that the youngsters in the u23 team are behind those who are in and around the first team.

I was sat MS in line with the park end and didn't see any cans. Saw a tropical luco hit the pitch after our goal like but that was thrown from the MS.

From our side Beni and Kenny looked good, the rest looked like kids. Even Besic.

They also didn't look particularly good. Gruijic looked like the only grown up on the pitch, and their n.9 was a pacey trouble. Most uneasy I've seen Feeney and Pennington tbh, both looked a bit jarg on the ball, barring one good pass from Feeney in the second half.

Oh and I liked Sambou, ran his bollocks off and looked like he had a little bit on the ball but he never really got a chance. Dyson put himself about abit but looked a bit like a knucklehead if you know what I mean.

The pitch invasion really fucking pissed me off, the club do something nice, the free entry was a lovely touch, then little fucking knobheads try and spoil it so they can go into school tomorrow with the YouTube video they recorded on their fucking phones, if that was one of mine I'd have slapped the fucking spit out of them.

Signed this lad and some Swedish kid too
Allegedly

Everton are interested in signing Boris Mathis, very interested if L’Equipe are to be believed.

The French newspaper, in their Saturday edition, say Everton are the ‘most serious’ option for Mathis right now. L’Equipe go as far as saying the Metz player ‘could leave Lorraine very soon and sign a first professional contract with a Premier League club.’

Le Republicain Lorraine (http://www.republicain-lorrain.fr/sports/2017/06/30/football-le-jeune-attaquant-du-fc-metz-boris-mathis-s-engage-avec-everton), a local media outlet, say Mathis has already signed a two year contract with Everton, but they base that on a tweet from their journalist Jean-Séb Gallois, since deleted.

Gallois later sent out another tweet (https://twitter.com/RLgallois/status/880828511736528896), without the 2 year timeframe, saying Mathis has agreed to join Everton.

Every reason to be. So unpredictable at that age that one of these players not labelled wonderkids could actually be the one to kick on. Look at Michael Keane. Worst case scenario they never make it to the first team, but they help the rest of the lads win U23s, so that when they come up they're winners and they're confident in their abilities. I really like this initiative.

It's very strange. I think you'd have to actively avoid young blues in order to leave them out of this type of thing. I mean, were top of the youth pile at the moment in many ways. So how on earth could none of the lads feature?

Leeds would be an ideal club to go out on loan to as they are genuinely a big club and any young player would get exposure to playing in front of decent sized crowds every week. As long as the managerial situation calms down it'll be good for the lad.

It's an interesting approach though which seems to be premeditated.

Last years U23 league winners, those good enough, move them into the senior squad, for those not quite there, loan them out and spend a not inconsiderable amount replacing them. It makes an already enviable youth set up even stronger

Can't see anything on here about this, which may have been swallowed up by the excitement and success of deadline day, so forgive me if I'm repeating this.

We've signed a lad called Dennis - not that Dennis, sorry @Toddacelli (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2432) - but an 18 year old from Fulham for £4m.

Quote
Everton have signed Fulham's England U18 international midfielder Dennis Adeniran on a four-year deal.

The 18-year-old heads to Goodison Park on a deal until the summer of 2021 after making five senior appearances for the Sky Bet Championship club.

Including add-ons, Adeniran could end up costing Everton a fee of £4m, Sky Sports News understands.

Adeniran scored on his professional debut in an EFL Cup match at Leyton Orient 12 months ago, and he played two more games in that competition as well as one league outing and a single appearance in the FA Cup.

He played for England at the European U17 Championships in 2016, when the Young Lions reached the quarter-finals.

Don't forget our Henry over at Anderlect - it was "his destiny" to join us!

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/turned-down-celtic-move-transfer-11103771

He is looking forward to helping knock Brendan Rodgers out of the CL in a couple of weeks, when they meet. We will have to keep our eye on that if anyone is interested in seeing him play, if he gets a start. We are going to have some squad in a year or two with all these excellent kids.

Henen ain't white, and is too often shite lolol
(To clarify, by shite I mean inconsistent and he's been playing at U21/U23 level for ages already, plus an unsuccessful loan to League One. The Echo think we tried to sell him in January.)

Number 16 was Nathan Broadhead, @Everton Mint (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=3381) was backing him in the "U23 for Europa" thread, perhaps he'll be the next Davies that goes from not being good enough to loan out to getting his head down to make a surprise emergence from the U23's!

I've said it before but kinda tongue-in-cheek - Kenny must look dreadful in training or have some fundamental flaw that means he isn't starting games. Anyone seen much of him and can shed some light?

Some have said Koeman is sticking with Martina as an ego thing: I've brought him to the club, I'm going to stick by him. But surely you wouldn't stick by a shit player when it could ultimately cost your team games/points?

When Koeman left Saints, Martina didnt feature under the new manager all season lol, i think that says enough about him (Martina)

From what i've seen from Kenny, albeit under 23s and the england under 21 world cup winning team,. he is a replica of Coleman.

I dont get it, Holgate, Kenny, and then we buy Martina.. i know it was a freebie,. but still.. must have knocked Kenny back a bit.

Koeman claims to give youth chance, but i think he's just as stubborn as Moyes.

100% agreed, I hope the latter line isn't true and it's something we don't get to see making up Koeman's mind about (not) playing him.

As well as Koeman has done with the youth, he does seem a bit reluctant to give them a chance initially.

If it weren't for injuries then Tom Cleverley would still be around and Tom Davies out on loan.

I don't want him getting thrown in against Utd but I hope he's at least on the bench for the EFL cup tie. I think it's more likely Koeman will see that fixture as a chance to build the confidence of his preferred players though. It just seems he's earnt a shot at some senior game-time against somebody or other.

i would throw him in against united.. play DCL up top with NIASSETY, give Man U something different to think about, 2 strikers who want to stretch the pitch, then we can play 3-5-2 and pack out midfield/defense. least we will have 2 players with decent pace who want to get in behind.. i'd drop Rooney, Sig will have to runners/strikers to aim for..

worth a shot in my view.. i bet with that strikeforce we have more than the average of 1.75 shots on target a match.

close, for united id play dcl and niasse up top with Siggy behind them gana and Schneiderlin in midfield, 2 wing backs, 3 cbs.
 
hopefully that way, we may get some rest bite for our defense, with big niasste and dcl making runs in behind.. we could even play Martina,, as he gets crossed into the box!

Title: Re: The u23 thread
Post by: Marky Mark and the funky on September 18, 2017, 08:38:01 PM
All I can say is that all of the Championship loanee's are getting plenty of minutes except Pennington who mut still be injured. I think Dowell might be getting a bit more respect from the opposition now because he was the first substituted on the hour mark of Forest's last match, I haven't seen highlights of their last few though.

Browning was dropped after being the main culprit of Sunderland losing last Tuesday, it was a bit like Keane to Schneiderlin, if the receiving player had been a bit more alert the misplaced place would have still been recovered but alas he played the opposition winger in, seconds later it's a  goal conceded.

for me it was the Derby striker Babos.

Anderlecht manager been sacked wonder if that will affect onyerkru?

Also, Gone a bit quiet on the dowell front, anyone know how he is doing?

News from Sherwod forest is that although the Tricky Trees (yes - they call themselves that - seriously) are playing shite at the moment, young Kieran is still turning heads.

He's finding it hard at the moment because he's not getting enough game-time according to the Forest faithful - and when he does - the rest of the team are so crap that he struggles to have an impact.

Word on the street though is that he is still considered their best midfielder, by most fans and by some distance.

I was hoping it was that. I'm a newly converted PES man and will happily chat all day long about that.

However it probably says a lot about how on edge people are with you at the minute mate. I don't even always disagree with you because I'm so disappointed with the season so far but you're running the risk of just being seen as a token troll.

Great stuff, thanks for sharing. I did look earlier, excluding added time he managed 62, 69, 27, 90, 62, 90, 90, 45, 63, 31 minutes which seems decent from our development perspective but it's high praise that the Forest faithful believe he should be getting more :)

Good play from Henen and Jones down the right sees the latter flash the ball across the six yard box. Sambou lunges but can't quite get a touch to steer it home.

Unsworth seems to really like Baningime. He played a big role last season with Joe Williams out and Davies moving up to the first team. He's a bit small but he's quick and does a lot of good defensive work. Fulham supporters thought highly of Adeniran and were disappointed to see him go but I don't much about him since he's so new.

The Grand Old Team "Everton Youth Teams Thread" is where I get most of my info about these players, although I haven't been keeping up lately. A few of the posters on there go to the U23 games regularly and have a pretty good idea of how highly rated the players are. It's probably the only thread on that site worth reading.

Shane Duffy was good enough to be given a decent chance (long term) in the first team.

He played exceedingly well when called upon during an injury crisis. Only for Moyes to drop him immediately when more senior players were available.

I agree but he never looked likely to progress us ( finances a reason ) and we always seemed to run through beaten horses to finish 7th or 8th . Thats fine if thats what is acceptable given the lack of investment he faced . He did however prefer ( a bit like Ronald ) square pegging a seasoned pro rather than giving youngsters a chance unless injuries meant he had no choice . I would accept that had he had money he may have been able to develop youngsters over a longer period .

Even the under 18 right back looks better than Martina.

Very good attacking. Some nice interplay in the run up to his assist, some attacking intent and putting the ball into the box and before that - an amazing crossfield ball from right back to left wing that was close to perfect.

But he did stop tracking his runner for the goal though. He gave up on the run but if he'd stayed with his man he would have at least been in a position to challenge him and maybe stop the goal, giving us a win instead of a draw.

If that sounds harsh - I don't mean to be. It's only U18's, not the end of the world and I'm sure he'll learn from it. It is nice seeing the youngsters do well. Reckon the U23's would beat the senior side at the mo (even though it's half made up of U23's).

There’s a very good chance we might win the U-23 league for the second year in succession with half of last year’s team having moved either upwards or out on loan. That would be some going and massive credit to Unsworth and his staff.

It seemed a strange approach to the game to me, they played not only two under 18's lads (who to be fair sound like they had a good game) but they also gave a few of the squad players a game. The echo seemed to think this is because they have a big game on Friday. Would getting them used to playing two games in a week not be good prep for playing for the first team?

I think putting Sandro, in the Under 23's would do him the world of good. Get him playing 90 minutes so will get him fitter. Scoring goals and build his confidence. Also playing football with guys of the same age group may help him enjoy his football for a while and get a smile back on his face.

The good thing with Unsworth taking the reins for the first team is; he's got his finger on the pulse for the U23s and should be able to make a well-informed decision were Sandro is concerned. Koeman getting sacked could be a blessing in disguise were Sandro and Everton are concerned. Over to you Unsy mate. It's all yours.  :)

We don't need them. We have more than enough youth in the first team setup at the minute, he just needs to concentrate on getting the first team squad back up to the levels required instead of throwing more kids into a tough situation.
