    Confirmed by Timbo.

    We're definitely going through a transition phase with our youth teams. We've got a very young group, so it's no real surprise to see us struggling a bit at this level right now.

    We could play an u23 side with all of our loanees and do very well in the leagues but the players development will be better progressed by getting that first team experience
    Agree with this. Add the loanees to the lads in Marbella with the first team, and you have a very good U23 side. But Dion Sanderson is going to learn far more in two games for Cardiff than he'd learn in 20 games against Saints U23s.

    The next step is to have a player out on loan in the Championship - like Mount or Harry Wilson recently - who's seen as one of the Champ's best players.
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57

    Very much this. Probably still another window away from where Jeff Shi wants them. Still some players to shift out and areas to improve and I think this season was probably predicted and that is why the pressure was on Rob Edwards last season to get them up, so we only really take on step back during this phase of the revamp of the U23's.

    Whoever is in charge of the U23's is going to know at various points in the season he is going to lose players to the 1st team. That is just how we are with Nuno and his squad size. Right now they can't cope with that and continuing the development of players such as Sanderson, BAS etc but it would be wrong not to send Sanderson out on loan. The one benefit we will get from this season is the likes of Campbell getting experience at a higher level at a very early stage

    A lot of the current u23’s will be there next season, so good for them to be getting experience now, and they will still be young next year.

    Sondergard
    Mathieson (or jack Scott if he’s playing first team games)
    Bueno
    Otasawie
    Marques
    Richards
    Cundle
    Taylor
    Campbell
    Perry
    Campana

    I’m assuming Enzo will be with the first team there and that none of the loanees will drop back in. Ed Francis will be almost 21 next season, I’d imagine he’ll move on as he’ll want first team football.

    There’s an absolutely huge amount of potential in that lot.
    Feigning concern, a Labour pastime, makes you feel doubtful right from the start. The expression he pulls is exactly like last time, got to assume he just hasn't a brain!

    I'd rather see them all go out on loan that playing for the U23s. That first team experience is invaluable for the development.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    Draw for the U23's in the PL Cup v Blues.

    FT 2-2. At 2-1 Blues, Campbell was sent off so a decent result. Perry with our first goal and Super Dada with the 2nd (sounds like a decent goal as well)

    Just missed a spot kick. Corbeneau tricked a delicate chip down the middle. Goalie stood still and caught it. A real shame as they're getting battered by a better team

    Breakaway, Chelsea score. They're bigger, fitter and faster

    So this is their 21-23 year olds vs our 18 year olds?

    5-0 now. Just one way traffic. We have some decent under 18s but across the team we are nowhere near the level of Chelsea, still plenty to do to catch them up

    As it's an U18 tournament probably not.

    They have won in 7 out of the last 10 years though.

    Now 7

    Finished 7-0. On paper, it looked just about as strong as we could put out.

    Yeah minus Campbell that’s about as strong as we get.

    That missed penalty at 0-0 proved to be crucial

    U23s doing OK against strong Liverpool side.

    Definitely better for having Loiodice in there who’s been complemented well by Terry Taylor. Perry is playing in the front three which isn’t really his strongest role but he’s done alright. Campbell looks better all the time to me.

    Campana must surely be in with a shout of a bench place. Not involved in 2 U23 games since we got back from Spain

    I think if Adama were 100% fit then he may well have been there on Friday.

    As it was we couldn't use him as the potential replacement for Doc/Jonny in the event of an injury as we weren't convinced he'd get through the whole game, so we had to put Young Oskar on there.

    Finished the much stronger side, Dadashov hitting the post at one point. Then go and concede a last minute goal.
