For a minute there I thought I read that people wanted to see Niasse thrown in to play away at Old Trafford.

Are we near the top of the league in this again? I know we started a bit ropey with all the new signings but are we back on it now?

We've got a really good crop of youngsters at the club now, could be exciting times ahead. I just wish we had a clearly identifiable formation and way of playing to slot them into. All feels a bit slapdash at the minute, hopefully a few wins on the bounce will change all that.

Moyes always went for experience because he couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag .

Not sure I totally agree with that. He wasn't a one season wonder with us you know.

I'm sure Martina would look decent against U18 opposition.

He should do. He'd be old enough to be their dad in some areas of Liverpool.

Good to see our lads getting selected in front of Solanke and Alexander-Arnold.

Thereís a very good chance we might win the U-23 league for the second year in succession with half of last yearís team having moved either upwards or out on loan. That would be some going and massive credit to Unsworth and his staff.
The future is bright, shame the present is pretty dull.

U18's won 5-1 @ Sunderland today.

The U-18ís could probably beat Sunderlandís first team 5-1.

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? Jesus my under 15 team played four games in a week at the end of least season to get all their games in

Unsworth and his team have a pretty good record so far so I'll trust their judgement on how they best utilise the lads in the setup.

So, do we reckon Unsworth will give any of the U23s a go in the first team?

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.

Not sure. Think I'd like to see someone else have a go at left back (not suggesting we have that player in the u23s as I wouldn't know)

We do but heís not registered to play.

That you, Arsene?

He's not even that forward thinking these days. Just pays big money for players and lets them run their contracts down now.

Five youngsters in the top 100. Highest English club, second only to Leverkusen and level with Real.
