It seems harsh to knock Rhino given his outstanding success with the U23's but I wonder if Brands is content with that. Very few players make the step up to first team duties. Bowler and Virginia are the most likely of the current crop and they were brought in from elsewhere.

I didnít say bin the comps, just that the success in these comps has no bearing on the first team.

Yeah, if the choice is winning PL2 every year and no-one making the grade to first team and never winning anything with the youth team but getting first team players regularly any sane club would opt for the second. Because what's the point of the youth team in the first place?

Main criticism on Unsworth is he plays a totally different style to the first team and it seems very results-oriented.
...............this is what I was getting at earlier. It's great having the best U23 team in the country but I bet Brands is looking at replacing Rhino with someone who could provide more end product .

Sounds like he was a good prospect, a few years ago. Cue a loan move to Wigan then.
...........he'd probably develop more at Wigan or wherever ,playing against established pro's.   I don't see the point of U23's playing year after year against other U23's .

Moshiri is behind Brands apparently so I cannot see why he just doesn't assert his power. Club is a mess apparently. Apologies if bollocks, these types of things usually come around when struggling.
...........I would have thought Moshiri can do whatever he wants given his majority stake. Kenwright only has 5%.
At board level he has Brands and Ryazantsev in his pocket and why would DBB go against her employer   ?

...............if she's a kopite she hides it well. I saw her presentation at the last but one AGM and  she came over as a true blue. Even made disparaging remarks about our noisy neighbours when talking about the Goodison legacy.
