Oh man, that Ramsey goal is special, I'm doing that thing again were I convince myself we've got a fucking gem.

Just caught the ITV Championship highlights (didn't know they had the rights but since getting ITVX without ads, I've been having a mooch at the content).

Wanted to see Tim Iroegubnam's goal for QPR and bugger-me, if it wasn't our own Jack Woodward on commentary! A fine finish from our young lad, cue Jack: "Tim the teenage talent is thriving".

Archer (2), Philogene and Davis all on target so far today.

There’s often a debate whether a young player should/shouldn’t go out on loan, for me the joy and hope generated by seeing a player doing well makes loans well worth it. Take Kessler, we rarely mention him now but was developing nicely whilst at Swindon. Archer has gone from being a non-story (some posters excluded) to having a genuine buzz about him.

I think Cam, A Ramsey and Iroegbunam will all be part of the first team squad next season. That's going to allow us to spend big on fewer positions.

I've got a sneaky feeling that Emery's spending time on the training ground to get Kessler ready to replace Ashley Young next year too.

The worst case with these players is we can sell them for say £2-5M (with decent sell on clauses).  That could pay for the staff at the academy for another season.  Rinse and repeat and the future is very promising.

The Barry assist is very good, it's good to see him starting to show his quality.

I saw an article the other day that was praising Middlesbrough for having the foresight 2 academy lads from the same club who had been playing together for years. And you could see that with Aaron Ramsey playing on the left of their front 3 and Archer and Akpom often swapping positions. The article suggested this might happen more often (they neglected that Sheffield United already have 2 Man City players on loan).

My first thought was how beneficial it would be for us if several of our kids were integrated into the first team squad, having gone and got that first team experience at a good level.

And some beautiful set-up play from Ramsey and Archer for Boro's opener just now.
