    Can't say I've heard of him before but it would appear so.

    Jinadu is a strange one. The search results I've seen say he's Nigerian born, and England-raised.
    Seems to have been involved with the England U16s as well.
    But his Instagram page has an Irish flag, alongside a Nigerian one, in his bio, and it includes a photo of him in an England lineup!

For all the other youngsters we have talked about in pre-season, it looks like it will be the New Year, at least, before they would be in contention.

    In U23 action, not a whole lot to report - but there was an interesting mirroring of Irish players in two games on Friday - Adam Idah and Conor Coventry did both line out for Norwich and West Ham respectively, William Hondermarck (Norwich) and Anthony Scully (West Ham) came on as second-half subs while two seventeen-year-olds were unused subs - Euro U17s star Andrew Omobamidele for Norwich and a goalkeeper named Daniel Jinadu for the Hammers... both played today for their clubs' U18s

    Great to see Scully fit after nearly 2 years of minimal football. He is talented hopefully he can have a career in the game

    I wonder how long he spent in Ireland? Frustrating to see players that have grown up and played football in the country lining out for England.

    Some find. Don't know so the time spans between Ireland, Nigeria and England.

    Gavin Bazunu started in goals for Man City U23 today against Southampton - still only 17. Southampton had Aaron O'Driscoll, Tom O'Connor, and Will Smallbone in their starting XI, Will Ferry came on in the second half, and Kameron Ledwidge was an unused substitute.
    City were 2-0 up at half time, but lost 4-3, with O'Connor scoring Southampton's second

    Tyreke Wilson not in the City squad, but he did play in their preseason games.

    Based on where our players are right now and preseason performances, I would say this weekend went as expected.

    Prem:
    - Obafemi getting more prem exposure, hopefully can stay fit
    - Sheff United irish the most prominent - great to see Stevens, Egan, Robinson doing well. I’m not a fan of McG. Would love to see Egan ousting the soon-to-be 33 yr old Keogh, but suspect McCarthy will stick with the latter
    - Hourihane did ok yesterday but he’s not a defensive midfielder, can’t see him continuing in that role this season
    - Travers paid the price for underperforming preseason, Ramsdale did okay. Time for him to find a loan before sept 2.
    - Wilsons arrival at Bournemouth precluded Kilkennys bench spot. Ideally loan time.
    - Parrott will be eased in slowly this side of Christmas. This is prudent
    - Connolly nowhere to be seen. Murray was poor yesterday, is getting slower every year and is 35. Fans getting restless. Connolly will get a chance in the coming months
    - Duffy solid defensively but woeful distribution as always
    - Kelleher may have bench spot for a couple of games if he can recover quickly with Allison injured
    - O’Connor is nowhere, needs loan before sept 2
    - Coventry is nowhere, needs loan before sept 2. Preference Coventry or Ipswich. Bolton are a mess
    - Idah outside matchday squad. This one is tricky as he urgently needs first team football and won’t see a lot of it this side of Christmas as 4th choice striker. I would prefer a Sunderland loan with recall option given they’re light on strikers
    - Dunne nowhere with Burnley. Long a squad player. Hard to see a significant Irish future here for either

    Champ:
    - Collins showed his rawness last weekend and Lindsay replaced him yesterday as expected. He will continue to get exposure though as season goes on and is our most exciting center back prospect
    - No knight on derby bench which was disappointing
    - Molumby will hopefully start league cup Tuesday night back from injury
    - O’Shea bench warming again
    - No Masterson in squad
    - Barrett relegated to bench
    - Cullen was outstanding for Charlton. Such a great move for him. Exciting prospect. Needs to be capped
    - Promising start by Maguire, needs to stay fit
    Another good performance by Crowley. Needs to be capped

    I remain optimistic. It’s early days in the season. The coming weeks gives our prospects league cup opportunities, and the potential of injuries opening up more chances

    O'Dowda seems to be freezing himself out. They were keen to get him to sign a new contract but he seemed to favour a move, possibly in limbo a bit now alright.

    A bit more on Browne being dropped here - https://www.lep.co.uk/sport/football...neil-1-9928759

    It's always been hard to see Browne as a creative 10 hopefully he can get back in there as an 8 where he would maybe be more likely to play for us now that crowley has the 10 nailed down!

    Lonergan reportedly offered one year deal to cover as back up as Allison is out for a few weeks. Kelleher still not 100%, terribly unlucky with the timing

    Good to see Connolly score 2. He will get his chance in the coming weeks, under 23s is no place for him, so hopefully Brighton will allow him leave either to league 1 or continent by sept 2 if he’s genuinely not in Potters plans. Maupay signing definitely hurt him.

    Klopp name checking caomhin as probable number 2 to Adrian once fully recovered, despite Lonergan signing. Good to see:

    "Striker Connolly and Steven Alzate had been at the Amex earlier in the day, and included in the club’s first-team photoshoot. Along with Romanian international Tudor Baluta, the pair have been training with the first team, under new head coach Graham Potter."

    From the match report on the Brighton website. Thats positive at least

    Elsewhere, Ali Reghba started for Leicester's U23s tonight: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...on-v-leicester

    Bit of a pleasant surprise: Jordan McEneff seemed to have drifted out of contention for Arsenal's U18s last season, but came on as a half-time sub for their U23s against Blackburn - Nathan Tormey also played: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...burn-v-arsenal
