What happened to Larouci? He looked excellent in pre season, then it seemed rumoured he would leave and after that I just haven't heard his mame at all

Bet fair , Skybet and Bet365 not showing our match. Looking forward to seeing a mixed team for us against their kids. FA will be gutted that what looked like another tough draw has turned into this!

He's being ghosted since he's not signing a new contract.

Rhys probably wins that one. Layton Steward is for me the most exciting attacking player at the academy. Hopefully he at least makes the bench tonight.

Interesting that 16 year old Alphie Devine who scored on his debut for Spurs first team vs Marine this evening becomes their youngest ever player to make his debut for them. Also their youngest goalscorer but was released by Liverpool at 11.

Itís like watching the first team at the moment - playing all the football, but very wasteful, and no luck either. Everton team is huge by comparison and given Unsy is coaching them, not in the tradition of school of science.

It wouldn't be Everton if they weren't a side of up-and-at-em grocks.

Well you can add to my former post a thuggish straight red for an Everton player, and some very odd refereeing.

Got injured early in the season after just coming back from his last injury.  Same game I think that Joe Hardy got injured also after just coming back from a previous injury.

You know as promising Rhys and Billy are , i would have thought they team would have brought in young players for the future who would more than likely fit the model for first team in the future?. I am surprised there aren't any CB in youth teams who have a bit of pace (like VVD and Gomez) about them?.

Sepp Van der Berg has a very good recovery pace, but for some reason, he has completely disappeared from the picture. It's a shame, since he looked pretty talented ...

Didnt know that. He looked a bit lost in the few times ive seen him in action (like those of us who mainly watch the first team).maybe he is a bit more raw than the club thought when they brought him in?. FWIW he also looks more like a Philips type player...

Well, he is certainly faster and better with the ball than Phillips. I haven't watched the game, but the reports suggest he did really well against Everton for the U-23's the other night. I suppose that he will go out on loan, but I wouldn't mind him getting a chance with the 1st team, if we are not signing a central defender this month.

I had high hopes for him but every time he's been given a chance in the first team he hasn't impressed at all.  Been poor to average (at best).  There's a player in there somewhere and he might need a loan move to really develop, but at the moment I can see why he's not getting chances.

He's never played in the 'first team'. One appearance in a second string vs Arsenal (where yes he was poor) and two as part of elevated reserve teams (his CB partner in one was Morgan Boyes).

I think he'll be much better playing with more experienced teammates. He would still struggle if thrown in right now but if we can get him a half decent loan then i think he could actually progress.

Depends where there's a squad opening. Not counting the games we played full academy sides probably Layton Stewart and Conor Bradley. Imagine Neco goes on loan next year and Bradley is the next right back up to fill that role. Stewart's good, but it probably depends on if we can shift Orgi and other attacking options who aren't contributing a lot as to whether there'll be an opening in match day squads for him. I don't think anyone is at Jones's level when he was at the academy where he was so obviously the best player and was with the first team squad pretty much straight away. If we finish 5th or 6th a few more, like Morton or Balagizi, could fill out the squad in European games

He's been on the bench recently for the under 23's with the odd sub appearance but not starting.

Ta.  Wonder if he'll get a loan next season or if we'll keep him in-house like we did with Jones.

Closing in on the signing of Derbyís Kaide Gordon, according to the Telegraph. 16-year-old attacking midfielder, fee £1m rising to potentially £3m. Apparently very highly regarded.

Is that not just the usual hype from these sort of signings? Good to see us being aggressive with some academy age signings though.
