5 goals in his last 6 games for the U23s so looks like he's fully settled in now. As I said on the Archer thread my aim with him now would be to get him around the first tema squad a few times this month then get him out on loan to the highest level we can in January and give him half a season of adult football. If he carries on as he has I suspect he'll be pushing for the first team before the end of next season.

On a side note I wish they'd got the TV gantry in place at BMH before the season started, I'd love to be able to watch how some of them are developing and right now you only get chance to catch the odd away game.

Very well by what I can gather on Twitter following their games.
His form for the U’23’s iceberg good.

Iceberg? More cool as a cucumber than a soggy, limp lettuce I hope.
Iceberg? No idea what I was typing for predictive to put that in!

‘Is very’ I should think.

Yep if you’re good enough - you’re good enough.

I would use an easy game to blood him.

2nd Jan would be ideal.

Could Barry fulfill the wide/wing forward role in a 3 up top
Or is he more a central attacking player be it up top or a cental supplement striker.

The little know i have it seems he could perform as an inverted wide player with attacking intentions but those ITK and observations  from his youth academy and U23 play could be more informing to where we could expect to see him.

Liking the news he's scored 5 in 6 having been reading above.
And certainly there could be some opportunities in December depending on how players are on fitness

I would love him to be involved in the first team squad this season.

He's doing well but I think he might still be too physically slight for any first team involvement for some time yet.

Is any more slight than Phil Foden?

Let's get him on the bench and a 5 min cameo just to rub their noses in it tomorrow!

I mean I wanted to say about when we're x amount up but I'm learning not to go shouting big scorelines!

Imagine though if he came on think he would enjoy it himself too!

Well there's 9 subs allowed on the bench now so there's every chance.

I don’t think for one minute he will be on the bench.....but wouldn’t this shitty year just get a little bit better if he was and he did actually get on and score against them??

He played for the U23s the other day so I doubt it very much.

with the 2 extra spots on the bench I'd like to see players like Barry (and Cam when he's back) getting involved. I'd vote to keep the 9 permanently but I'd add a requirement that at least 2 have to be home-grown U21s to encourage players like this getting a chance to be in the matchday squads nice and early.

We aren't far off having one of the youngsters on the bench out of necessity let alone choice.A squad of 26 (including Ramsay) for 20 places but 4 of those are keepers so 22 outfield players for 18 spots. Wesley, Trez, Barkley and Konsa are out as things stands so one more injury/suspension and there's a spot for one of the kids. You'd think Engels, Taylor, AEG would be the defensive cover so it would probably have to be a forward. Maybe not so far off Barry Jnr getting a run after all.
