    He's 23 now so time for him to be leaving Old Trafford, he's obviously got no chance there.

    Did well in League 2 last year so a permanent move to League 1 or a higher rated League 2 team will probably be next for him.

    Burton were top half of League 1 last season so that would be a good step up for him from last year. A good season there would leave him well placed to get a decent permanent move next summer.

    Irish midfielder gets chance to impress on Bournemouth's pre-season tour https://the42.ie/4720295

    Gavin Kilkenny joins Harry Arter and Mark Travers on Bournemouth's pre-season tour. Not sure whether Arter is back in or not. I don't think Jefferson Lerma had the impact they had hoped would match or exceed the outlay. Gosling and Surman are not out of his league.

    Connolly appears not to have started or come on at half time in Austria (despite wholesale changes); not sure if he came on towards the end. Molumby did not travel due to minor injury, hopefully he will get some game time in England preseason wise

    Great stuff hopefully grimshaw will go on loan he is 21 and leave bazuna with 23 football. Great to see he is ahead of the 2 England under 17 keepers on city's books .

    Dara O'Shea got 90 minutes for WBA in their first pre- season game, apparently played well. Good reports as well from Knight at Derby who should break through there this year and also Connell's first start for Celtic. Probably not enough to get him into the champions league squad for now, though I suppose he may get a run at home to the Bosnians as the tie is effectively over.

    Conor Coventry sent back to West Ham's under 23s, doesnt go on their tour to China. So really no justification for them pulling him from the under 19 squad for the Euros. Poor form from them.

    Idah made his senior debut coming on after 75 minutes in 2-2 vs Bielefeld. A few photos of him failing to force a ball home by the looks of it. Not much else reported on his performance https://www.pinkun.com/norwich-city/...port-1-6159242

    Okay, here we go:

    David McGoldrick scored the only goal for Sheffield United against Real Betis. Egan and Stevens played a half each: https://www.sufc.co.uk/matches/fixtu...ndly-20190712/

    Shane Long played the first half for Southampton (and I think gets credited with an assist) while Michael Obafemi and Will Smallbone both played the second half (is Smallbone one to watch for next season) https://www.southamptonfc.com/news/2...-friendly-1920

    Josh Cullen played the second half for West Ham recently - would be great if he still has a future there: https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/...season-austria

    Adam Idah got 15 minutes action at the end of Norwich's draw with Arminia Bielefeld: https://www.canaries.co.uk/News/2019...-on-14-jul-19/

    Kian Flanagan an unused sub for Palace against BSC Young Boys: https://www.cpfc.co.uk/news/2019/jul...rystal-palace/

    In The Championship:

    A hat-trick for Sean Maguire in Preston's game against AFC Fylde. Browne and Rafferty played an hour; Adam O'Reilly was an unused sub:https://www.pnefc.net/news/2019/july...-match-report/

    Two goals for James Collins in Luton's victory over Welwyn Garden City: https://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/201...-on-06-jul-19/

    Ryan Manning and Olamide Shodipo both played the full 90 for QPR against Austria Vienna, Masterson came on for the last quarter hour: https://www.qpr.co.uk/fixtures/first...enna-friendly/

    That's a great review. Thanks.
    Some good news in there. Particularly for Southampton

    Smallbone seems to have been given the 18 jersey for the new season - would suggest he's in the manager's plans. Obafemi is 20 - obviously squad numbers don't mean an awful lot but they suggest they should both be getting some game time at least.

    Big thanks to Sammy for his work up above. Great to see Didsy get a goal against Betis, especially with their Irish connection in Patrick O'Connell winning La Liga with them.

    I've never, ever bought the "we don't have the players" argument, but right now I feel giddily optimistic about the future of Irish football. It's great.

    Premier League:

    - Aston Villa: Scott Hogan - has struggled for game time but Mick seems to have indicated that he's an option if he can play more
    - Bournemouth: Mark Travers - two late games last season hopefully indicates he has a chance of being back-up keeper, at least. Perhaps he may get a shot at proving himself in the domestic cups
    - Brighton: Aaron Connolly and Jayson Molumby - both have seen EFL Cup and EFL Trophy action in the last couple of seasons and impressed in the Toulon tournament so should be knocking on the door of the first team
    - Burnley: Jimmy Dunne - two seasons of loans at progressively higher levels, amassing over 70 first-team appearances - let's see if he's ready to step up a level
    - Crystal Palace: Kian Flanagan - U23 player of the season at the club
    - Liverpool: Caoimhin Kelleher - if Mignolet goes, could become main back-up 'keeper, like Travers
    - Norwich City: Adam Idah - 12 goals in 19 appearances for the U23s (only turned 18 in February) - top scorer in his division. Also Conor Masterson, if the rumours of Norwich's interest pans out
    - Southampton: Michael Obafemi - can he build on last season's breakthrough. A few others in their academy but Will Smallbone seems to be the one making most progress
    - Spurs: rumours abound that Troy Parrott will start to see first-team action in the upcoming season
    - West Ham: Can Josh Cullen build on his success at Charlton to break through or will it be another loan spell or a transfer out? Maybe Conor Coventry, but might still be too early
    - Wolves: Connor Ronan - decent loan spell in Slovakia and good Toulon tournament will hopefully boost his stock and confidence

    The Championship

    - Derby: Jason Knight - on the bench for the play-off final last season
    - Millwall: Jonathan Afolabi - if he impressed enough on trial
    - QPR: Olamide Shodipo - after falling out of favour, an unsuccessful loan and some injuries, returned to first-team action late in the season
    - Reading: Josh Barrett - as with Shodipo, got back in the first team late in the season
    - Stoke: Nathan Collins - Also a late season breakthrough, and now on Man Utd's radar, although another season at Stoke is probably a better option
    - West Brom: Dara O'Shea - good loan spell at Exeter may put him in the frame at his home club

    SPL

    - Celtic: Armstrong Okoflex - if he chooses us; Luca Connell - if he ends up with them
    - Hearts: Aidan Keena - scoring regularly on loan, in reserves, with a Scottish Cup goal also

    Serie A

    - Inter: Ryan Nolan - a couple of years in their youth set-up (making captain in their recent Cup Final) has hopefully prepared him to be a high-level defender

    So that's 22 players, essentially a full squad. If even five or six break through in this pre-season, it will bode well for the short-term future. Is there anybody you lads think should be added?
    This pre-season cheat sheet is proving helpful given your update yesterday. Cheers Sam.
