    Clark and Norrington-Davies have pulled out too, so our fullbacks should get loads of game time.

    Found a couple of threads on the twitters about the Harrow Borough game today.

    Team: Byrne, Bob Trialist, Weymans, Duffus, Alan Trialist, Young, M Harris, O'Keefe, Meite, Terry Trialist, John.

    Subs: Coxe, Burwood, Veale, Christiano Trialist.

    2-1 down at half time, Harris scored for us. Quote from twitter: 'Piss poor everywhere'.

    More news as I get it (read it).

    2-2 last minute free kick from Declan John. I bet Borough will be feeling rotten.

    I knew it!

    Warnock's kept the Ronaldo connection very quiet. On the bench at Burton, I reckon.

    Good line, I'll use that myself and pretend I thought of it. Hope you don't mind.

    No, you haven't thought it through. In that scenario we'd be feeling rotten while Borough would be ecstatic, obviously, so the gag wouldn't work. I suppose I could say it's rotten Borough signed him but I don't think I, or this message board, would be in the mood for humour at a time like that.

    I am pretty sure his son was playing at some level previously. However, that's as far as my knowledge goes! On an unrelated matter, I would like to see these youth development threads made a Sticky on a matchday like today as it would be easier to access any updates. I enjoy reading this thread, but 9 pages on a matchday is heavy going if on mobile!

    It's Diego Poyet on the team sheet which is Gus's son's name.

    I suppose there's no harm kicking the tyres on him but not sure he's done much to show he can contribute at this level. Maybe Warnock sees him as a possible reclamation project?

    Thanks no.1 of the season. Good to hear the turn out was really healthy. Hopefully this lasts now and isn't just a start of the season bump.

    Not sure why WoL said that Duffus was a CAM. Possibly because they are Duffus's. Though it could be useful if he's a utility player. The club website made the same definition.

    Good to hear Declan has been chucked on the wing. Wouldn't want to see Abbruzzese blocked as I think he has to play at this level now. Looks like Young and Coxe will be starters for the DVP, though I'd like to see the latter go out on loan.

    The U18's profiles have been updated on the club website. Some new faces to me and useful to have some basic details on the youngsters.

    Sounds like Ratcliffe was busy and had a good game. Bob can you tell me roughly what his physical stats are? I hope he's lanky. I feel like the GK prospects Cardiff and Wales tend to produce recently are just too short to make it to the top of the game.

    Do you think we can expect to Bodenham, Isaak Davies or any of the other prospects stepping up to DVP football any time soon? Hopefully we can actually loan some of the DVP players out for experience and make room for younger players to come through. I have a feeling there will be no need for "Loanwatch" this season. I don't think we have a single player loaned out yet.

    It's always hard to tell with youngsters that age because they could still add an extra few inches or they could almost have stopped growing. Id' say Ratcliffe is currently something like six foot tall and pretty solidly built - if I had to guess, I don't see him being another Pantilimon.

    Bodenham played a few times for the Development team last season and I'd say the results were mixed as he struggled once or twice, but the encouraging thing was that when he was good, he was very good - I'm thinking here in particular of a game against Burnley that we were losing 1-0 when he came on, but the improvement which eventually earned us a 2-1 win coincided almost exactly with when he came on and he didn't put a foot wrong that day.

    I was told on Saturday that Isaak Davies is only fifteen - I certainly like what I've seen of him so far.

    Of the others in Saturday's team, Sion Spence played quite a few matches for the Development team and Laurence Wooton got a few minutes as sub for them last Monday, but I don't believe the others have done so yet.

    I reckon that we'll see a few players go out on loan in the next ten days - of the youngsters, I'd say somebody might take a punt on Cameron Coxe or Rhys Abbruzzese, wouldn't be surprised if Mark Harris is loaned out as well.

    Speaking of those three players, I see Coxe and Harris aren't in the Development side today at Forest - there's a couple of names there that I don't recognise - Makinson (who may have played for us last season? - just checked, yes he did, he must have done enough to earn a contract) and Osawe and I see Diego Poyet is playing again.

    Actually, Attah is another name I'm not familiar with - couldn't find anything on Google either.

    Poor result today, beaten 3-0 by Sheffield United.

    The two unfamiliar players are Ufumwen Osawe and David Attah

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    Seems an unusual and unsettled approach so far. There are 7 players listed on the main site for the U23 team and we still seem to be taking players on trial.

    Also, just noticed Weymans is back in Belgium having signed for Tubize. (Sorry if already posted).

  27. #347

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    Thanks for the info on Weymans. Shame he's gone as he seemed to boss some games last term. A move back probably suits him though. He's probably ready for senior football, especially if it's the second flight of the Belgian pyramid. Good luck to him.

    You would hope that the Toulon tournament was a good advert for those three TOBW mentions. Coxe really made a name for himself. I'd be dissapointed if he didn't get a loan. I think Harris is ready physically.

    Sounds like our new signings the trialist triplets aren't gelling like you expect they might. Poyet probably is worth a good look. He seemed a good prospect a few years ago.

    Something has just appeared on the Crewe club website saying that today's match is an evening kick off, but City's Twitter feed confirms it is a 2 o clock start.

    Great. I'm hoping Poyet proves himself to have something. (If he is still with us, I can't check twitter on my phone). We could really do with a centre mid of his description to serve as back up for the seniors.

    Poyet wasn't involved, so I think his trial period is over - don't know how he did on Monday, but he didn't impress me much in his first match against Sheffield Wednesday.

    Haven't seen it anywhere else on here but Ibrahim Meite has gone to Crawley on loan till January. City are top of the Championship and Crawley are bottom of League 2 in case anyone is interested how far Meite has fallen.

    Thanks for the info. Good chance for Meite.

    Thanks. That sounded like a tough match to describe but you made it vivid. I mentioned on here that Coxe needs a loan. (And ccmb needs more of an excuse for the return of loanwatch). But I did think that if that were to happen then the would be a gap to plug in the DVP side. Sounds like this Attah trialist has a natural ability and has potential. Perhaps Harris could do with finding a loan too. He looks physically ready.

    I would like the club to source a young talented centre mid somehow. If the ideal squad size for the seniors is to have two players for every position, then by my reckoning we are short in that department. Especially after the league cup showed us our weakness of depth in that department and that one or two senior names perhaps should be moved on. It would be good for us to find a young centre mid with potential that we could chuck into DVP games while waiting for a chance in the seniors.
