Not to be negative, but whilst DCL certainly developed in the U23s he wasnít a product of the academy. Kenny isnít good enough and will be off in the next year or so. Davies will be a good player and certainly a good squad player. Thatís not a great strike-rate.

It is compared to other teams.

There's only so much you can do at youth level, the vast majority just aren't going to be talented enough no matter how much they do right in terms of work ethic.

Great result from the U23s and great to see Kenwright, Moshiri, Brands and Silva all there, though Bill's appearance seems to have rubbed some up the wrong way judging from other sites

Bill literally gave the fans money the other week and got stick,

People are bellends, they're entitled to be bellends and we're entitled to call them bellends.

Are we still playing players due to be released by the club?

No, they've been released and we're still playing them.

Understand that we want to provide these lads with the opportunity of a career in the lower leagues but come on, theyíve had their opportunity.

Truth is most youth players donít make it and if you end up on loan then youíve probably already failed.

Take Liverpool for example. Sterling and Alexander Arnold never needed a loan whereas the likes of Woodburn and soon to be Brewster will end up nowhere near the first team despite the hype.

Worth mentioned Beningime did go to Wigan and didn't manage to make an impact.

He gets told to play out of contract players and Oumar Niasse then. Okay.

Two words. Shop and Window

It's the U23s though.

A shop window with the shutters down.

Unsworth is taking the piss now.

He's put the mayor of Liverpool on the bench.

I donít expect Dowell to get near the squad and heíll probably be sold.

However he is a lovely footballer technically and heís the same age as Holgate was after his loan at West Brom, so thereís a chance.

There's only so much you can do without cherry picking players from other academies. The talent has to be there to start with.

Same with that little weirdo they've got coming through at the moment who seems like a total cock.

Pennington turns 26 in six weeks time. Wasting his career.
