Well done Louie ,i would imagine he has scored more goals in half a season than Keinan Davies has scored in around four years at the club .

There's quite a difference between U23s football and the Prem, isn't there?

Looking forward to LB's continuing development.

There most definitely is. Especially at the moment when the vast majority are 18-21.

Yes, we field very 'young' youth teams these days, though the results look good enough.

The club took the decision to draw a line and to start fielding a mostly U18 side in the U21's. This means they'll have longer together, be playing against players who are more physically developed and getting them ready for loans into senior football, be that league or non-league. I think that's the right approach and hopefully, as we come out of Covid, they'll start being able to link up with European sides too.

Under-18s win 4-0 at Reading. Brad Young with two of them. Looking good in our section of the league. Not sure how it works at the end of the season, guessing some sort of playoffs against the other division winners if you finish top?

Anywwy, league:

Palace, played 12-points 27
Fulham 12-26
Tottenham 13-25
Villa 10-25
Arsenal 11-19

Stream is okay - pixillating on occasions.
Villa have just gifted an equaliser to Palace.
