We seem to be doing better with the clubs we are loaning players to this year. Young players getting good game time, in a number of cases at teams towards the top of their league. Good to see.

If the women get promoted, will they need to play at another ground?
Feel sorry for Boldmere if they do.

I don't see why, it is bigger than the one that top flight Bristol City play at and not far off the capacities of Blose and West Ham's chosen grounds, while Everton seem to just host their games in a park.

Yes, to Walsall was the plan I was told, then to Bodymoore.

Boldmere capacity isnít big enough to satisfy PL requirements.

Ramsey scored a cracker for Doncaster ,his third in 6.O'Hare looked to be pulling the strings for Coventry who are now top and Doncaster close to the play off places.
Good young attacking midfield options for next year ?
I hope so, regardless of which division we're in.
Pity we do not have a DMF youngster who can step up: I thought Doyle-Hayes would be that man, but he seems to have slipped off the radar.

JD-H is on loan at Cheltenham Town in league 2. Seems to have established himself in their first team and getting plenty of game time. Link to his page on their club OS.

Cheers.
Ah, Cheltenham Town ... not the greatest place to develop into a Championship player, then. Or, he's in a team that's doing well in its division, and that has to be good experience.
Or, perhaps he'll return and cement himself into the HMF role we desperately need.

I see Jedinak is helping with kids - what happened to Richard Beale....wasnít his arrival seen as a bit of a coup. Seems he now helping out at Solihull Moors?

Is Carney Chukwuemeka as good as they say? Will Man U and Liverpool get knocked back and fail to get up again?

I've heard very good things, all the info i get about the kids is from someone who's with the community sport programme and he reckons we have 4-5 around that age that could be top level players, Aaron Ramsey and Philogene-Bidace (JPB) are the other names I remember and there was a young fullback that he was raving about but I can't remember the name. He was raving about JPB when I spoke to him about a month ago, reckons he needs to work on his finishing but that he's got the pace, strength and skill to be in the first team already.

Back on topic Chukwuemeka is very good for his age, big, quick, strong, decent shot and a good passer, not heard of anything that's 'wrong' with his game so it's no great surprise that the rich clubs are looking but he's the sort of player that we need to convince will be better staying and getting game time with us, if we want to develop as Purslow has suggested we can't be losing our best academy players before they even break through.

It's good that there's a group of them. You can add Louis Barry to those names and hopefully Legion's pupil too. If they're part of a group and you can show them a clear pathway into the first team, you're more likely to keep promising young talent.

For those that watch the younger levels, what's happened to Mungo Bridge? He was being linked with Milan and Real Madrid but doesn't seem to be getting talked about in terms of progressing to the first team.

Thanks for the detail, Paul. If nothing else it'll stop my dad asking why we never any effing good kids coming through. :)

Agree with the need to keep players like this.

1 of the group was Archer, not sure how that slipped my mind. He's never mentioned Barry, I assume because of how he came in to the club. Most of the players my mate talks about have been with the club for a few years.

He was a massive fan of Bridge as well but I've not not seen him mentioned for a while. The fullback I'd mentioned is Bradley Burton by the way. I normally hold off on talking about the players he mentions  too much until they start playing U23 and I can see them myself because I'm not a fan of using 2nd hand opinions on players. The difference right now is that there's nothing else to talk about in regards to football.
