Our Under 16s/18s/23s

Sat Sep 09, 2017 1:42 pm

They seem to be getting hammered a lot. There was all the noise about Butt taken over and putting things in place, so I'm hoping we're just experiencing growing pains, however, this is worrying.
We used to be extremely dominant in those leagues. Doesn't seem the case at all right now.

He needs to get some playing time and he sure as heel isn't going to get it with the first team.

This may be a senior moment but I thought I had read that Gomez will be playing with the U23 team, anyone hear anything?


I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

A few reports that Tuanzebe is going out on loan to Aston Villa. Hopefully Steve Bruce doesn't have the same depth as we do and Alex will get some regular playing time.

I think this ties in to what I was saying around the England youth teams that are doing so well, very few of those players are coming from the United youth which makes a massive change from the last decade, even if we weren’t producing United standard players, we were still producing very good youngsters, Gomez is the only one that’s making it into the England youth set up which is saying a lot about our youth teams.
Scholsey wanted to help by coaching the young players and United rejected that which is a massive shame.

That would have made a difference, but I'm not sure how much tbh. Not sure we're still scouting and picking up the best

Wilson is still recovering from that exploded knee isn't he? Loan is probably good for him.

Scouting, amongst many other areas not directly related to the first XI, been pared to the bone by our lords and masters :x

Not sure if anyone has the under 18 leagues scores documented, as well as the under 23s.

It seems to me that the under 23s get comprehensively trashed on a regular basis. Surely they're bottom of the league? Tbf though our true under 23s would be Martial, Rashford and co - if you blindly follow the age-range definition.

For the under 18s, they do seem promising - they seem to win most times. It almost seems to me that they'd comprehensively beat the under 23s (if both teams were mutually exclusive)

Our better players on the fringe of the first team go out on loan. It would be a safe assumption that if TFM Tuanzebe and Pereira played regularly rather than for Valencia, Villa and Palace, they would get much better results

Not to mention Sam Johnstone, James Wilson and Demetri Mitchell who is having a storming season at Hearts.
