Youngsters playing in the cup - have they impressed you?


Recommended Posts

So, the Mickey Mouse cup is over. But it has brought important experience to plenty of youngsters.

Have any of them impressed you to the extent that you would want them to start league games? Either immediately or maybe in the near future?

I wouldn't be breakin the first team up 

 

But these kids have shown that can step in if someone's got a knock and do us a job. 

 

Without costing us a bloody fortune when they're not in the first eleven.

The objective is really for them to be able to step up and integrate into the first team as needed, but not all at the same time.

 

Jos made a mess of it by trying to do 3 or 4 at once and weakened the team, destroying their confidence

This needs to be stopped before it spreads.

 

Containment is key.

Why call the only silverware we’ve won in the last 3 decades the ‘Mickey Mouse Cup’?


Because no one takes it seriously. Times moved on unfortunately and no one in the premier league cares about silverware anymore, its merely about ‘survival’ so the wealthy owners can make a profit from their business investment.

They are great backup and should be gradually integrated this season. They play with confidence and certainly asserted themselves the first half tonight. But, as expected youthful inexperience showed a few times with risky passes that could cost us if we're not careful. 

On the whole I think they will all be assets to the club and see occasional first team action this season.

Been really impressed by Shaw, and Hunt previously. Dele-Bashiru also has something about him.

 

Wouldn't suggest they dislodge any of the current starting line up at the moment, but certainly in the frame if form dips, or to cover fatigue, suspension or injuries.   

 

Of the younger players, these are the most credible first team challengers.

No Waldock looked decent for half an hour then faded badly

 

the two at the back where overly tentative and constantly out of position leaving massive holes   throughout the game and the sole blame for this seems to be being put on borner because he’s older 

 

not saying there might not be something there but right here right now their not taking anybody’s place in the first team and need to be loaned out however due to the lack of squad depth they can’t be 

 

deli on the other hand looks to be a great signing strong athletic and bursts forward with the ball at his feet not really something we’ve had since Carlton Palmer he’s the type of player that two good seasons at this level he’s a £15m player

FDB looks really good. Signed on the cheap, more or less nowt but you’d bet City will have a sell on.

Bloody Jos

lol

In his first game at the Lane he brought on #seanflair for his debut as we were hanging on for a point. I thought he was mad but at the final whistle I thought it had been brilliant management to give the lad experience and show confidence in him in a game like that. 
The following few months proved he didn’t have a f**King clue.
