I don't think our system works

we should scrap the u23s and have a b-team and fill it with released premier league players u21 and give them a 1 year plus club option for year 2 and allow them to continue their career with us.

play matches and tournaments that we choose and play the same formation as the first team and use it as a shop window for their futures

Some poor players with no chance of getting a successful pro career were given deals by us this past summer and as mentioned above there are still no strikers in that squad.

We have the potential to treat it like that, as long as 7 players are under 23, and the majority of players we would want to be looking at, will be that age or under

The Academy has improved no doubt but we still can get better. We are competingagainst toptier academies and until we reach that status will always be up against it. 

There was a time it was poor basically when we had no money but it is unfair to keep tarring it with this brush when things have moved on.

Currently Wildsmith and Dawson have come through Academy which suggested goalkeeeping coaching was working. Also Penney, Hunt Shaw and Hagan etc are all inand around team and some of thesehave been with club a long time.

 

It is about time some decided to get chip off shoulder and give credit where it due instead of having totally negative agenda.

 

There was improvement across the board however Tomlinson was taken fromU/23sto help with first team and he has been missed. The loss of this coach resulted in a reshuffle but essentially we were missing a top level coach. Since he has been missing u/23 results have been poor.

 

Bullen has now been placed in this role. He pulled no trees up when he did it before and results improved when he left to help CC. I hope things do improve but have doubts.

That is essentially how it has been.  We have picked up a lot of players released by other clubs. Orughide and Thorniley being  best examples.

And it’s important that we continue to do that, at least until we can get to the bottom of why Sheffield doesn’t produce enough footballers

While there are maybe good reasons for the delay in recruiting players for the first team, we should by now have recruited a few for the U23s. We need a whole set of strikers for the U23s, where the newly promoted Hagan is our only forward. Had we had a few in place, it might have been possible for us to have some better striking options for the Cardiff game. If Monk only sees, perhaps another two players coming in before the window closes in October, we may have to call on the development lads in the meantime. There is nothing wrong with that, it’s what a lot of clubs do, and it’s better to have available a youngster who’s played as a striker for 3 or 4 years, then trying to shoehorn the likes of Reach and Brown into an alien role. Big problem though, we are just as dilatory at recruiting for the development squad, as we are for the first team.

One thing I’ve noticed, is when we field players from the first team squad, they often seem to be just going through the motions, according to people on here who watch those games. If teams took this competition more seriously, and fielded competitive sides, the standard would improve, and it would become more like the old reserve leagues that many miss

Hard for them to get motivated playing at stocksbridge or the training ground in front of 50 old blokes that pop down to fill in couple of hours  . ....never did understand why they got rid of the central league but pretty unanimous to drop it and the clubs dont seem like they want it back .

That’s true, although it doesn’t really help when players are banished to train with the U23s as some sort of punishment It again devalues the competition

To be fair, I think they are trying to do just this. Major clubs have been reluctant to release young pros due to the coronavirus. Man Utd haven't let any go at all.

 

In the few weeks since they've resumed, the club have trialled a few more than the one's that have been named in the press.

 

Maybe have some playing tomorrow?  From Huddersfield twitter account:

My lad is going into under 14s this year and has always played in the top league with the Sheffield boys lads and lads who have gone off to academys etc so we have a good idea of who are the good players at his age group. He's been invited to United, Rotherham and Chesterfield more so when he was younger and has been to open trials at all these clubs too. As far as i am aware wednesday have never done anything like this in big numbers. He has trained at the development sessions at wednesday and they do have a sort of shadow squad but it never seemed to be organised very well. My lad is nowhere near ever being a footballer but I think we are deffo missing out on some of the lads he plays with and against...even if we just held open trials a few times a season

I’m sure that has been the case, but given the paucity of strikers at all levels of the club, we could have got at least a couple in. Rather than waste money on championship journeymen, how about spending it on a top young non league prospect who we could develop. There would be no issue with that type of player being put off by a 12 point penalty 

Whilst on the subject of non league strikers, I see one time Arsenal, and supposedly Wednesday, trialist, the wonderfully named Tyger Smalls, has moved to Felixstowe. His younger brother, with the equally fabulous name, Midas Smalls, scored in one of last weekends FA cup games

When I was a kid I played for United but couldn't get into Sheffield Boys as they just picked giants. I often wonder if it's changed.

Most in non league for a reason. Forgive this extremely long post but here's a list (doesn't include every player) of players released in the summer. There isn't much around and certainly not many who have the potential to play championship footy. Most probably for a struggling side. Let's face it the loan merry go round won't start until the transfer window comes to a close. Wednesday must be waiting on that. High risk.

 

Last Updated – 6th September 2020

 

 

Here’s the players who’ve so far been released by clubs in the Premier League, Championship, League One & League Two. These are from the club’s retain/release lists and from general announcements made by the clubs. I’ll update this page throughout the summer as information of who’s becoming a free agent becomes available so bookmark this page to see how things evolve. When the released player moves to a new club I’ll put that in brackets next to the player so you can see which footballers are still free agents.

My lad is going into under 14s this year and has always played in the top league with the Sheffield boys lads and lads who have gone off to academys etc so we have a good idea of who are the good players at his age group. He's been invited to United, Rotherham and Chesterfield more so when he was younger and has been to open trials at all these clubs too. As far as i am aware wednesday have never done anything like this in big numbers. He has trained at the development sessions at wednesday and they do have a sort of shadow squad but it never seemed to be organised very well. My lad is nowhere near ever being a footballer but I think we are deffo missing out on some of the lads he plays with and against...even if we just held open trials a few times a season

Think I've just worked out who you are 😂 

 

I fully agree with you on us missing out. No idea what that shadow sqaud is all about but compared to the way united do things we're miles behind. They have regular sessions and turnover of players, monitor players when they've left etc. My lad trained with united in their development sessions for a while. Got moved up to the elite but they let him go eventually. He knows why and he's finally realising they were right. If he sorts himself out then he may get another chance, if not so be it. We seem to be missing a trick though by not matching the pigs.
