dont know what happened with grant i heard such good things about him he gone too , might as well close the u23s down whats the point

 

Still can't believe official statement from the club: We wanted to send Grant on loan to Rochdale, but they wanted to sign him on permanent deal so we said ok?!

Look I would have kept grant and Shaw at the club but we have just raked in about £400.000 I wonder how much it actually cost to develop these two  I just don't go with the shut the academy it's not that simple

Maybe Adedoyin if he stays fit and gets a runout in the first-team at some point. Started well in the u23s before injury.

 

They took a long look at him. I think he did well on trial but only scored 1 goal in the league. Supposed to have a lot of ability. Waldock's a lovely player. Hunt needs to come clean and say he's only 13yo really. If he can find something physically he'll be a proper player but it looks to be holding him back. I liked the look of Grant but it seems he couldn't wait to get away.

 

Thompson and Reaney seem to be getting a run in the U23's.  Hagan and Dawado seem to have been unlucky with injuries the last 18 months. Galvin seems to be doing OK. He hasn't let anyone down when he's played.

Losing 1 or 2 young players doesn’t have to be the end of the world, really we could do with Hirst and Shaw both going on to bigger and better things, because all of a sudden it would raise the profile of our academy.

Sam Sausage is the one to look out for. 

 

Heard he sizzles on the wing and runs through Walls for the cause. Out of the frying pan and into the fire playing for our first team though.

In recent years we’ve had Hirst and now Shaw that have been highly rated and moved on for next to nothing. 

 

We’ve just let Grant go who was highly rated at one time, and Penney and Urhoghide could be set to leave for free at the end of the season. 
 

But have we got anymore in the academy that people think could step up in the next season or two? 

 

So highly rated that they have one senior goal between the pair of them ! Shaw will outshine Hirst but there are no promises !

I think Waldock will be a very good player. No doubt he’ll probably be let go 

I watched him for a few seasons I don't think he's anywhere near first team quality

Yes highly rated. That doesn’t mean the finished article or guaranteed success.

I might be wrong here, knowing our leader I probably am, but listening to NT we have put in some extra's in the deal.

Maybe 25% of any transfer etc.

Could be. Thompson was bit cryptic describing the deal and saying that we will watch how he develops. I don’t think so, but perhaps we included first refusal clause or Agreed buy back price or as you said will get % of any future transfer fee.?!

What's the point we don't value youth why waste out time developing any. DC continues to show older players every time. It probably the reason we will have finance issues every season.
