    Both seem to have done well

    I stupidly had a half a hope he'd be on the bench for the first team game today

    Ireland U19 midfielder bemoans not being sent out on loan by Crystal Palace https://the42.ie/4815642

    He's not wrong but not sure if it's a good idea to be stating it when he's stuck for now.

    As I mentioned on this thread during preseason. 1 full season is sufficient at under 23 level, any longer and you risk your development stalling. I really think a lot of the football agents have a lot to answer for, in addition to club management, when you see things like this, poor advice to youngsters who need wise heads advising them.


    Thankfully Connolly, Idah and Molumby pushed on, and O’Connor, Masterson and Afolabi at least played a different hand. Parrott played very few U23 games last year, he is doing fine where he is, a mixture of uefa u19, prem 2 u23s, and senior league cup games before senior league in 2020...that is sensible nurturing of his talent by Spurs right there.


    Coventry is another one I’d worry about. He played 17 games amassing 1500 minutes of PL2 football last year, loan was the correct move for him this side of Christmas but West Ham held onto him. Making him captain of U23s doesn’t really help him continue his development. Wilshere and Sánchez are ahead of him for the league cup games (not to mention Rice/Noble), he played 9 minutes in recent cup game and nearly cost them a goal by dwelling on the ball too long, something that would be rectified quickly with regular first team football at Championship or league 1 where he had interest.

    2 goals for Scully at west ham In the 23 s league tonight and another full game for mceneff with arsenal 23s. These two have been good surprise packages at 23s level this season

    Case in point, Harry Charsley is now in his fourth season of U23 football, with Everton allowing him to stay on after his official release earlier this year - you'd wonder where he could go once he finally leaves. Played tonight against Brighton - Warren O'Hora scored for them: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...hton-v-everton

    That's 7 in 5 for Scully, plus McEneff playing upfront for Arsenal (although in midfield tonight, I believe), plus Ethan Varian starting to get significant minutes as striker for Stoke U23s (https://www.premierleague.com/match/...orwich-v-stoke). Normally these developments would merit excitement from followers of Irish football, but with the talent we've coming through, they're almost below the radar (and probably completely unnoticed in the regular media). Incidentally William Hondermarck came on for Norwich but, perhaps more importantly, Andrew Omobamidele, who is still only seventeen, seems to have established himself at centre-half already.

    Speaking of our young strikers, Ryan Cassidy came off the bench for Watford U23s against Bristol City, as did Bosun Lawal, who I believe is only 16! https://www.watfordfc.com/teams/firs...1-bristol-city

    Notable absentees: Aaron Connolly, of course, but also Ali Reghba didn't play for Leicester U23s against Liverpool, a week after scoring his first goal - what could that mean? On the other side, Kelleher was between the sticks for Liverpool - has he been dropped from the first-team squad? Or could we still see him on the bench against Chelsea on Sunday? Is Klopp giving him some game time in advance of a League Cup debut? https://www.premierleague.com/match/...er-v-liverpool

    Cassidy has been injured or the guts of seven months so is another one who could do with a season of 23s football.

    Omobamidele was as impressive as Joe Hodge for the under 17s in the Euros. I think he will be a cracking player.

    It’s nice to see Bazunu re-establish himself as number 1 for man city U23s, second start in a row today. He’s had 4 starts now, not 18 until Feb. Amazing stuff

    Well, Kelleher was on the bench against Chelsea, so hopefully his appearance for the U23s on Friday was an exercise in keeping him match fit in advance of a senior competitive debut on Wednesday

    He has been a regular with U23s. He’d be getting no matches if he doesn’t play U23s. He should start midweek in league cup

    The brilliant Kenny's Kids has pointed out that Parrott is MIA for Spurs 23's tonight. Hopefully this points towards EFL action: https://twitter.com/SpursOfficial/st...481810945?s=19

    No harm he gets a game. He isn't that far from a run in the first team. Worst case scenario he gets a League One loan in January.

    https://www.the42.ie/caoimhin-kelleh...23339-Sep2019/ basically just says liverpool didn't allow him go on loan this summer. When u consider they let grabara who is same age go to huddersfield it sounds promising. In general I feel kelleher hasn't been getting much love which I find hard to understand seems to be a sense that he is just lucky to be in this position at liverpool this season and last

    Straight red for Collins. Twitter consensus is that it was a tough but late tackle.
