Surprised they (you) linked to an article with the click bait of "players allowed to leave" and then the article is just an opinion of well these five could go out on loan, maybe, we think, they could you know, might, etc.

Doesn't it link to a Twatter article?

Explains why there were some unfamiliar names in the team last night.

God competitive first half that.  At this point you’d possibly question whether we have the attacking spark of last seasons team but we have a solid looking back line….Feeney looks v good & Chrisene I suspect might be one of the very best in the academy structure

Is that it? We out? Or is it some sort of group stage?

It’s straight knock out
2nd goal was injury time breakaway after we sent 11 up for a corner….in reality was pretty even but they scored the one quality strike.

Those that played last year Bogarde, Chrisene & Swinkeks + Feeney were the stand outs who you would have confidence to keep developing towards first team squad….the forwards / creative players it wasn’t quite their night

Watched Kessler for Swindon v Leyton Orient and he was as bad as the 4-1 defeat would suggest.  Struggled to get into the game and was ineffective when he did, possibly trying too hard on the few occasions he had the ball.

That said, such experiences, if channelled the right way, will make him a much better player than bossing it in his own age group.

Last night's result probably makes it a lot easier to send some of them out on loan next month.

Current U18 crop clearly not as good as last year’s.  I expect we are scouring the world for the next batch

Need to remember that it's better that there be exceptional individuals who could come through to the first team than to have an overall strong team winning the trophy but doesn't produce players for the first team.

last years crop are, mostly, still this years crop. The team the other day was missing 7-8 players who are still eligible but are either with the first team, out on loan or injured.
