    Nice to see the U23s developing and if their transition to the first team is done well (I don't think it is currently) we could have a crop of real gems for years to come.

    D'Almeida looks to be growing into a right wing back position although he did move into a more natural centre mid position in the second half He's very solid. Semenyo was in the other wing back position and really caught the eye. Tracks back, reads the game well.... Very quick and skillful and takes players on at ease... He looks more like a natural winger to me than anyone else in the entire squad.

    Connolly caught the eye at the back along with McGuiness who certainly must be close to a run in the first team... Rarely played long and his passing accuracy must he excellent. Along with Denham at the back it makes an interesting trio with a little bit of everything... Tackling, pace, passing and some exceptionally well executed professional fouls!

    Patten And King did ever so well in the middle when often being outnumbered. The pace and movement in front and to the side of them really helps. Davies also makes himself available and goes looking for the ball. A quieter game for him today though.

    Zimba continued his scoring run as did Evans. Both will learn the game and make better decisions... A few times they took the wrong option but they are explosive and work well together.

    Ratcliffe, the keeper, also looks very good at this level.
    Its the movement ahead of them that is important, makes their lives a bit easier with options.

    I think we were dealt a bad hand with League Cup draw against Brighton who are clearly a top side now, and do think we were using that competition quite well anyway, but wonder if we could have done more by handing managerial role to Steve Morrison and getting him to work out which senior players were most comfortable to playing like Under 23's.

    Bit like what Liverpool do in the League Cup with their Pep and good number of youth players getting involved but using it to prepare for continued evolution in style as well.

    A belief that there is a pathway (and a need for it to be successful) raises all boats.

    I like what Liverpool did last year, very good, even if it didn't work out its got to be great for the kids. League Cup isn't a big draw these days no harm in the teams that want to taking that approach.

    My boys play for their U11s and U9s. They’re a good club.

    They used to have Shaun Wade on their books before he went to Bristol City. He’s 15 and just moved to Chelsea for £300k.

    Like Cardiff City’s first team, but in a good way.

    all the more impressive when you consider how many of the first team squad still qualify for the u23s

    And more impressive again when you see that no side has conceded fewer goals than us across either division and only four sides (out of seventeen in total - one of these being us) have scored more in four games played*.

    I know goal difference will be improved when winning games but we look well balanced between attack and defence so far. TOBW has said it's more similar to first team - helping create that pathway - than before while still being attractive football.

    *Bristol City included because I doubt they scored six goals in their extra game played, Watford and Hull not included because it's very possible they scored their one extra from extra game played.

    We scored on 75th and 81st minute so not garbage time but that age group do seem to concede. A concern?

    While conceding ten in two games is obviously excessive, goals have always been easier to come by at Academy level, but I can’t really comment on this year’s team as, apart from a Youth Cup tie or two, I’ve not seen any under 18s football in eighteen months.

    A poor weekend for Cardiff City continued yesterday with the Women's team being beaten 4-0 by the jacks (they always beat us heavily in this fixture), but, hopefully, the Under 23s can lighten the mood by maintaining their fine start to the season in their game with Millwall today which is being played at Leckwith. Kick off is at 1 o clock and there is free entry for any fans who go along - the game will also be streamed on the club website;-

    Nice one will put it on in the background while working at home today.

    Only seen highlights this season so would be nice to see what a few of them are about.

    1-0, Zimba again, lovely pass from Evans.

    I like the look of zimba, a proper centre forward.

    jai semenyo is really quick too

    1-0 at half time, the only concern really is that it should be more.
