Was wondering why Tyriek wasn't involved against Liverpool.

Yep, he was the strange one for me as well. I've seen him a few times and I don't think he's of the level to be training with the first team so I couldn't work out why he wasn't involved, all i could come up with was that he might be another one that house shares, this makes  alot more sense. He's out of contract in the summer and I'm not sure he'll get another one with us, he could still make it but I'd have a lot of question marks over him right now. That said I hope he proves me wrong, has a brilliant 6months at Walsall and earns a new deal with us, the more youth players we have pushing for a chance with the first team the better, that's the club I want us to be.

Interesting article in The Athletic by Gregg Evans on the jettisoning of talent over at The Sty with us and Wolves eager to pick-up the best players:

Quote
Birmingham City are willing to offload some of their top academy players as part of a potentially money-spinning scheme, The Athletic can reveal.

A number of youngsters are either attracting interest from rival clubs or trying to secure a move away from Birmingham after the club announced plans for a major overhaul of their youth set-up.

Last month we exclusively revealed how the club were considering changing their under-23 and under-18 teams to B and C teams in the future — similar to the model at Brentford. Ditching youth development below the under-18 level was also a move under discussion, and still remains a possibility, even though plans for Category 1 status (the highest level under the Elite Player Performance Plan) are moving forward.

England youth international Calum Scanlon recently told the club he would not be signing on as a scholar and was quickly offloaded to Liverpool who paid around £500,000 for the 15-year-old.

Rico Browne, 17, is expected to be the next player out the door. The first-year scholar is highly-rated and played in the FA Youth Cup as a schoolboy last year but Birmingham City will not stand in his way if they receive a suitable offer.

Multiple sources have told The Athletic this is also the situation for other players in the club’s academy at an even younger age.

Local Premier League rivals Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to take advantage and have already drawn up a list of targets. Both clubs are recruiting aggressively to bolster their age-group teams across the board and see this as a quick way to strengthen.

Villa recently signed 13-year-old goalkeeper Sam Proctor from Peterborough United for a maximum compensation fee of £100,000 and now — according to several academy recruitment and scouting sources — have the leading under-13s player at St Andrew’s on their radar.

A number of other clubs, including Wolves, have their eye on a few more top academy talents.

I noticed Dominic Revan has joined Weymouth on loan. They're struggling in the National League so he'll probably be busy, but it will offer some good experience.

If and when supporters allowed to watch Weymouth I'm sure quite a few of the local Villa support will go and give him some support.

There's obviously a desire to loan players out to local clubs, whether that's because of Covid and wanting to keep players local to their families.

He's one that I hadn't really much about but looked good last week. We must be building some good relationships with local sides. There's often been talk of having a feeder club in the past but if we have good relationships with all local sides then it will stand us in good stead.

Just a quick mention about Raikhy. Made his 1st team debut last week, this week made his League debut for the U23 side.

Not many can say that.
