Forde and Cassidy are now unlikely to feature in the first team when what they need is games at a much higher level. What a shame this system hasn't worked better than it planned to be, neither competitive at a high level or representative of preperation for first team games. A pity as it was very well intentioned.

Interesting that very few fringe players are involved in tonights game.

Hunt's injured himself I think (hope). Chest injury. Probably did it lifting weights trying to make himself into a 'little ball of steel'.

I like the look of Parry. Reminds me a bit of Kevin Cooper.

Poor first half, far better second half. Evans played well and Zeli had a couple of good moments. Iorfa looked solid at the back. Nothing from McAlinden or Cassidy.

Does he pull his sleeves over his hands instead of wearing gloves? Aside from his freekick/penalty combo against Derby it's all i can really remember of Cooper.

Cooper was a really good player. Jones blatantly signed him just to piss Albion off though (that went well). Never used him, even when Newton was rank for a good 18 months. Then signed him again for Cardiff. Dave Jones is a weird bloke.

His meaningless long distance scorcher vs Norwich in the play-offs was pretty special.

Didn't he play for him at Stockport too?

Yep. He does this a lot - fucked Oakes over multiple times at Wolves, signed him for Cardiff. Kept slagging Lee Naylor off and dropping him as the easiest scapegoat - kept giving him new deals, signed him for Cardiff.

Fell out with Bothroyd as I recall at Cardiff but signed him for Sheff Wed this season.

Gorman appears to have gone backwards, being on the bench now instead of a starter.
Reckord too.

He'll be gone in the summer. He had a trial with a Scottish club just before the transfer window, but they decided against it.

Hat-trick for David Moli today in the U18s (they lost 5-3 to Sunderland).
