Academy & U'21's

I watched them play against Salford in the international break and they were awful. They didn't have a manager then and seemed a club in complete disarray

Another disappointing performance against a decent, but far from outstanding, Tottenham side.  Once again individual mistakes cost us with a number of players struggling to find any sort of form.  Butterworth had his moments in attack and Lyons kept going in midfield but apart from that there was little to shout about.  One or two are finding the step up to League One a real challenge at the moment but hopefully they will find their feet.

Thanks Parson. Didn’t go last night (Fridays bring other commitments).

It’s certainly going to be a more difficult season. Higher level and a rebuilding job. Those that shine will shine brighter this season. Including the coaches.

Thought: Did Dunny’s aura / persona bring something to the young side?

I thought Spurs had some really exciting attacking players but they seemed to be playing for themselves and not the team, Paris maghoma being the epitome of this.

Another hugely disappointing night against a very good Sheffield United team.  Only Butterworth and Lyons made any impression on a very wet night at Stocksbridge.  Lewis Travis had a poor game by his standards and Simmonds continues to make little impression up front.  In truth the majority had an off night against a Sheffield team that were quick and well organised - very similar to their first team.

Vilius Piliukaitis is real. He scored. I didn't realise he's actually signed. Did the club announce it?

We've also got a Moroccan CB who couldn't play against City because he was on U'20 International duty. It's like the 90's again!

Don't think the club announced it, but then again announcements on the u18s and u23s are hard to come by. I understand that the game v Man City which was played on Saturday morning was due to be played in January, the game was suddenly brought forward without any public announcement from Rovers.

This certainly makes me feel old. grew up during the Ian Wright era, watched Shaun-Wright Philips career and now in that u18 match City had his son D'Margio Wright-Phillips playing.

D'Margio?

Plenty down there watching in dreadful conditions - it was on the website in the list of fixtures as a change and also on City's website but wasn't announced as a fixture change in the news section of the website.
