    Back in the U23s tonight and set up Southampton's goal in a 4-1 defeat to Brighton, who didn't have Warren O'Hora in their squad... is he being looked at by Potter? https://www.premierleague.com/match/...mpton-v-albion

    Surely Scully should be in the U21 squad, after 12 goals in 10 games, especially with Connolly moved up. If he isn't, then it's clear that Kenny doesn't have a clue!

    Also Nathan Tormey got his second goal in two games for Arsenal against Spurs - call him up SK! https://int.soccerway.com/players/nathan-tormey/453116/

    Also, Olamide Shodipo was back for QPR's U23s on Tuesday and scored the final goal in a 3-0 win over Millwall, with Masterson captaining the side: https://www.qpr.co.uk/fixtures/under...3s/?tab=report

    Another goal for Scully today, as West Ham continue to cake walk PL2 Division 2. Never seen him play but does appear to be on forum having had injury issues that other posters have pointed put. Reading the WH forums, they appear to rate Nathan Holland higher with Scully still not getting much attention, however, Holland is a year older. Definitely agree should be looked at under 21 level

    Amazing run he's on, topping the goalscoring list in his league and hitting double figures in nine games. Let's hope it's not just a streak.

    Elsewhere, Josh Barrett responded well to being sent back to Reading's U23s, with 1 goal and 2 assists: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...land-v-reading

    Tyreik Wright scored his second goal in four games for Villa's U23s tonight, while team-mate Jack Clarke was credited with an assist against Oisin McEntee's Newcastle: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...la-v-newcastle

    Anyone with insight into Wright? Still only 18. Only saw him play in Armenia with U19s, he was very poor and substituted at HT vs Czech Republic. Appears to be left winger, and is playing regularly for Villa PL2 team with 7 appearances this season, along with an U18 appearance. McEntee appears to be doing well although he didn't overly impress me in Armenia, established as u23 centre half for Newcastle as an 18 year old - this is his first full season at PL2, hopefully can secure a loan move next summer to continue his development.

    i saw some of the 17s games Wright played and the 19s qualifiers and games in Armenia. Never particularly stood out to me but glad to hear he's doing relatively well.

    As for McEntee, I think he's a solid young player. We have a **** load of centre halves at every level, so he's one amongst a crowd...

    21s: Masterson, O'Shea, Scales, Nolan, McCarthy, D O'Connor, Kelly, Ndaba, O'Driscoll, O'Hora, Finnerty, McNally

    19s: Collins, McEntee, McGuinness, Omobamidele, Sobawele, Richards,

    17s: Garcia-MacNulty

    With Ederson injured, Bravo suspended for next champs league game at home vs Donetsk, it will be interesting to see how close Bazunu gets. Hopefully Ederson is out for a few weeks, Bazunu is probably 4th choice behind Carson? He played the uefa youth game today

    I've noted Bazunu has 6 PL2 starts this season, to Grimshaw's 2. And Grimshaw is 21 and has been PL2 for the past 3 years with a handful of games each year, no loan move yet. Grimshaw appears to be on the proverbial road to nowhere, Bazunu is a potential destination, let's hope Pep agrees. The next Iker Casillas, establishing himself in his teenage years.

    In any case, Ederson injured his thigh apparently, probably not too serious so should be back by next CL game. If not, we could see Gavin on the bench, you never know.

    Some news from the Premier League Cup - 17-year-old Timi Sobowale played for Blackburn's U23s against Middlesbrough tonight, having recently gone on trial from Man City: https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.u...sive-injuries/ https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2019/n...h-u23s-pl-cup/

    Good move for Timi if it happens. He’s a lad with plenty of ability, but City’s academy has such a volume of good players that if you’re not playing, you’re better moving on sooner rather than later...

    Aoron o driscoll made a similar move from city to Southampton 3 years ago . Isn't stephen hunt his agent?

    Another goal for Scully, making it 11 this season, as West Ham won 4-0 vs Villa in PL2 Division2. Coventry captained West Ham while Clarke played for Villa. Other noteworthy events: Bazunu and Wilson kept clean sheet for Man City. No Kelleher for Liverpool, i hope he’s back in time for League cup. O’Hora played for Brighton in this 3-5 loss to Liverpool. Charlie McCann on bench for Man United but saw no action. No Parrott for Spurs, let’s keep our fingers crossed as always

    Obafemi starts today, only bright note for the young irish today. Connolly, Molumby injured. N Collins, O’Shea, Knight, Idah, our 4 Celtics youngsters, do not make match day squads. Parrott not even in traveling squad.

    Great news re Obafemi. Pity that he will never fit into McCarthy's system.

    Solid 75 minutes for Obafemi, was lively and used the ball well in only his 2nd prem start. Hard to believe he is 6 months younger than Connolly. Got a bit more about him than just pace. Should have had a tap in, somehow Cedric messed up the square ball, and he played Ings through for the penalty foul. I thought it worked well with Ings up front. Let’s hope Southampton hang on here for 2-1, and this is the start of a string of starts for Obafemi

    They didn't hold on, but Obafemi had been subbed off before the end anyway. Sounds like he played well, I've only watched him a few times and he was average enough, so it's good that it looks as though he's better than I was giving him credit for.

    Hopefully he gets a run of starts and Southampton move up the table. I don't think it matters too much if he doesn't fit McCarthy's system, he probably only has one or two more games in charge anyway, Obafemi will be one for the next campaign if he makes it at Southampton.

    I only saw MOTD highlights - and it was only against Arsenal whose defence would make me look good - but that was the best I've seen him. Lively and direct. Should have had a tap in as tommy said above.
