Barry. Stockport 3rd goal.
Azaz. Plymouth 4th goal.


Barry's goal was a bit special.  Picked the ball up just outside the centre circle, burst forward, and beat three players before drilling a low shot past the keeper. A really excellent goal. Yes, it's only League Two, but he's doing very well indeed this season. He also seems to have grown an inch or two since last season, so I wonder if he's now physically better prepared for men's football?

I also wonder if his form continues like this, if the club will do something like they did with KKH a while back and bring him back in January to send him out again to a side in a higher league?  If he keeps scoring, and is comfortably in double figures by Xmas (he's on 6 already), I'd expect there would be a few Championship clubs that would be willing to take a punt on him for the second half of the season?

Anyway, after 18 months where it was starting to look like his development had stalled, I'm delighted to see him finally showing what he's capable of.

I saw a story this morning saying that we're already considering exactly that.

Good assist for Barry as well. Giving off Notts County-era Joe vibes in todays game.

Where's this footage of Bazza yesterday or are you all watching Ch5 at 2am for the lower league highlights? You should be out drinking and dancing.

The difference is Joe was only 17ish at the time.

Sky EFL  highlights. Watched the Plymouth game to see Azaz’s good goal as well.

Yes, 18 I think. He was destroying 'The Mighty Reds YNWA' at Wembley at 19.

Re LB - a tweet from a Stockport fan made me smile: “Nothing to see here Villa”.

I think over time Barry will develop and have a Calum O'Hare type ascendency up the leagues.

When O'Hare was 20 he was on loan at Carlisle I think. With better structural development we could've trained him up as a Grealish replacement and saved ourselves 30m odd on someone like Buendia when you see how well O'Hare has done at Coventry. If not for a serious injury he'd probably be playing in the prem for Burnley now.

Louie probably struggled from going somewhere like Ipswich too early. Promotion favourites and had 5-6 attacking options already so he wasn't even making the bench and lost a bit of confidence from that.

He's far too good for league 2 so you'd think he'll eventually settle into top half league 1 and then championship player.

Sinisalo in action tonight against Luton. Not quite Man City, but still a bit more of a test than a League 1 side.

Exeter win 1-0. Luton have only scored 3 goals this season, so maybe it's not that impressive, but all good experience for Sinisalo.

Hull's player, not a loan.

With respect to our "sell them but can just buy them back again" policy.

Maybe we need a general "players who aren't ours but could be ours if we wanted" thread.
