Rovers in full control won 2-1. Liverpool manager says it was the worst performance of the season so we must have done something well Gave away a sloppy goal 10 min before the end. Keeper came flappin

Chaddy, it is impossible to defend the kick-off time for the Burnley game.  It's another kick in the teeth for supporters.  I can attend but friends who work can't attend.  If I had been working I wou

Excellent performance by the Under-21's last night at St. George's Park - and what an outstanding venue that is.   We really ought to have won by more than one and controlled the game for long pe

A very good win and an excellent performance, particularly up to the point when Butterworth came off injured.  First twenty minutes or so it was fairly even and Cardiff looked like being tough opponents.  Then we started knocking it around with increased confidence and played some lovely pass and move football.  Hardcastle and Mols were outstanding in midfield, Mols playing in an unfamiliar position on the right wing.  Rankin-Costello took his goals well and Butterworth was a constant threat playing just behind Mansell.  Ward and Hoban looked, as you would expect, a class apart and controlled things at the back without breaking sweat.  This allowed Travis and Doyle to continually attack down the flanks from full-back.  Injuries to Butterworth and Doyle meant we lost momentum in the second half and although we created numerous chances we didn't take them.  Cardiff's consolation came with the last kick of the match.  This was another very impressive performance from Rovers youngsters considering they were without Nyambe, Tomlinson, Mahoney, Platt and Thomson.  Hardcastle is returning to form after a lean time, Mols looks an outstanding attacking prospect, as does Rankin-Costello and in Butterworth we looked to have picked up a real prospect from United.  Travis and Doyle were excellent in the full-backs positions - both in defence and going forward.  The ideal game for Ward and Hoban as they got 90 minutes in without being overworked.

Looking forward to the report.

Rankins-Costello seems to love a goal, we could do with some of those in the first team. 

Would be great to have Hoban back for this Saturday. Free the Mulgrew!!!!

I assume Mowbray was there?

All sounds very positive. Cheers for that. Glad to hear the two lads played 90.

Thanks Parson for the report.

Hopefully Hoban will be back on Saturday.

Is Platt injured?

Was it just Johnson on the touchline or was Wes Brown there as his number 2?

Do you know much about Butterworth, why he left Man U etc? He sounds like a real prospect. Is he quick. skilful etc?

Thanks Parson. If we go down one positive may be that these lads will get more of a chance.

It's probably twelve months since I last saw Stephan Mols play but as for parsonsblue comments on Mols being an outstanding prospect very high praise indeed for this lad who looked very ordinary back then.

Parsons still hasn't passed comment on David Lowe yet, an ex academy coach who achieved very little but suddenly promoted to the first team.

Disappointing performance today at a very wet and windy Brockhall by the Under-23 team.  A different system - three centre-backs with Henley and Hendrie operating as wing backs - didn't work and ultimately we were beaten by the only goal by the better side.  We missed two decent early chances but never got a look in after that.  Sunderland looked very impressive and thoroughly deserved their win.  Both teams now go into the draw for the knock-out stage.

We were already through though ,weren't we? 

Did Hoban and Ward play?

I really don't understand why we used a loan spot on Hendrie.

Certainly ! He's faced nobody and done nothing to date.

 

How would you when you arent there? 

You cant stand it that Nyambe is proving you wrong. Its time you admitted you were wrong and that Nyambe's performances are getting better and better

We should think about handing Nyambe a new contract as well as we should Mahoney

Agreed, Nyambe has improved loads since his first appearance, and Mahoney is a really exciting player.

Don't have to be there chaddy as I know what your seeing but if he proves me wrong then that can only be good for Rovers first team which we'd all take.

Do you think Ryan Nyambe is premiership material ?
