    Dan Wallis

    No I make him 6th choice now! Behind Dawson, Wildsmith, the other 23 's keeper McCulloch and the two under 18 keepers!

    Dan Wallis

    He was on the bench. Only played once this season. McCulloch preferred

    Wednesday U18s 1 v 0 Forest U18s

    Yes if its not in the Football League. Some good clubs in the National League-Wrexham, Chesterfield, Hartlepool, Leyton Orient etc. We never seem to loan to non League at all but United and Rotherham do it all the time with their young players.

    Wednesday U18s 1 v 0 Forest U18s

    I can't remember us ever loaning out an U18. U23's yes. When Penney first went on loan it was his first season out of the U18's. In fact we don't loan many out at all. When we do we tend to let them see out their scholarships and think about loaning them if they have signed a pro contract. Someone like Borukov is at that stage now. He could have a short loan in the National League as they don't have to be full or half seasons.

    Under 23 line up at Coventry today

    Stobbs got a new two year contract towards the end of last season. Bit of a surprise.

    Fox? Seriously wtf

    A young lad has been given a chance-Penney who'll be back next game. It'll have to be two seasons in the U23's because he signed a 3 and half year contract when he signed according to the Star to take him until 2020.

    Youth Players Tonight

    Ash Baker is 22 in October

    Just a quick reminder...

    I'm sure, with the injury crisis, he would have played last season for us if he hadn't been sat on his backside stuck on loan at Mansfield. Same at Bradford. Hopefully things will start going better for him now.

    He signed his first pro contract October 2015, nearly 3 years ago. He's 20 now and seems to have been round ages before finally get a chance. He's only contracted until the end of this season though as the new contract he signed a few months ago was just for a year.

    Promoting youth players too soon.

    To be fair Dawson is 23 and Baker and Thorniley just about 22 and these are the three that people are talking most about. They should be mature enough by now.

    O'Grady only got a one year contract until the end of this season unlike others and seems to be behind Thorniley, Nielsen and J Lee

    People are talking as though these 'kids' are 17/18 and in the Under 18's. They are not. Baker is nearly 22. Thorniley is nearly 22. O'Grady is coming up 21, Dawson is 23, Stobbs is 21, Nielsen and Penney are 20. Clare was 21 when he made his debut. Preston and Jack Lee are 20 later this year. Only Hunt who was 18 a couple of months ago and the same with Borukov are what I would call 'kids'. The others should really be starting to be ready for first team football and could have been a while ago. Like somebody else has said players in the World Cup were as young and younger than these and that includes some of England's.
  14. Played in every League game last season did Reach. Typical
