    Definitely agree with you there re Cambridge. Im just wondering if they think at Forest he still needs to have a successful goalscoring loan before he gets his first team shot. At least Forest are very good with blooding their academy players.

    Yeah, they might well do. Although surely you'd think that if he keeps up this scoring rate, at some point they'd have to consider giving him a shot themselves.

    Meantime, Kian Flanagan was on the scoresheet for Palace U23s as they beat Eoghan Stokes' Leeds 3-0: https://www.leedsunited.com/news/aca...crystal-palace

    Bit of a round-up from the Premier League Cup tonight:

    Main headline would be a goal for Khius Metz for Burnley against Newcastle: https://www.burnleyfootballclub.com/...-on-29-sep-17/ - he's starting to put a bit of a run together.

    Four Irish players featured for Southampton U23s against Watford: Jonathan Afolabi and Aaron O'Driscoll played the full game while Thomas O'Connor and Michael Obafemi came on after 75 minutes. Afolabi hit the post and won a penalty but Southampton lost 2-1: https://southamptonfc.com/news/2017-...saints-watford

    Caiomhin Kelleher and Corey Whelan played to full 90 in Liverpool's draw with Charlton, while Conor Masterson came off the bench on 74 minutes: http://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/acad...-charlton-draw

    Dan Cleary is back at Birmingham and played the full game against Derby, as did Corey O'Keeffe: https://www.bcfc.com/news/articles/2...y-under-23s-1/

    Is there a reason Masterson was excluded from the recent underage squads?

    Couple of Irish scorers in U23 action tonight:

    Shola Ayoola has seemed to be a fringe player for Stoke U23s recently and started on the bench against West Brom - came on after 70 mins when they were 2-0 down and promptly scored two of Stoke's four. Robbie McCourt got an assist for West Brom: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...ke-v-west-brom

    Corey O'Keefe scored for Birmingham City in a 2-1 loss to Barnsley: https://www.bcfc.com/news/articles/2...y-under-23s-2/

    Thank you. Ayoola is an interesting one nice option for our 19 s this season up top. Hale hasn't pushed on yet this season at Birmingham maybe he has had injuries. Mccourt is another interesting one was a left full in that 17s side with masterson that were at euro s but didn't seem to feature much for the 19 s last season.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if he was a serious option as he seems to have been a bit-part player, at best, for Stoke's U23s. But I had a look at his profile and he's still only 18 so there's still time for him to become more central at that level. Hopefully today's brace will give him something to build on in the coming months.

    Several goalscorers in U23 action tonight:

    One of our big hopes for the future, still-17-year-old Aaron Connolly came on as a sub at half-time and got the winner at Southampton. Jayson Molumby (who's only 18 himself) moved down from the first-team squad to captain Brighton, while Jonathan Afolabi (also 17) played upfront for Southampton: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...ton-v-brighton

    Josh Barrett got another goal for Reading against West Brom. Robbie McCourt came on as a sub for West Brom, Evan Pierce was an unused sub: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...brom-v-reading

    Jake Doyle-Hayes grabbed the sixth goal as Villa U23s thrashed Newcastle. James Finnerty was an unused sub. Also, any chance Callum O'Hare is eligible? Because he got a hat-trick: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...ton-v-brighton

    Olamide Shodipo kept up his recent terrific goal-scoring form, this time grabbing a penalty against Cardiff: https://www.qpr.co.uk/fixtures/under...iff-city-u23s/

    Almost certain O'Hare is eligible. Played for the same GAA team as Jack Grealish: http://www.theharpnews.com/former-me...otball-career/

    Am I right in saying he hasn't played underage for the brits either?

    According to Wikipedia he hasn't, but do we really need him with the astonishing degree of depth coming through? Oh it's nice to feel arrogant sometimes!
