    Great run by the u/18s, there has to be at least a couple of them worthy of stepping up. You hear of kids at other clubs being chucked in, in recent years we’ve been very reluctant to give it a go. These lads must be doing something right on current form.

    7 consecutive league wins for the u18s and I think that's with some u18 players stepping up to the u21s
    Good to see

    Cian Ashford has signed a contract extension to 2027.
    Would be good to see him get some game time at Plymouth tomorrow.

    Id start him or Joel Colwill if Rubin cant play. I struggle to see how theyd be worse than Wintle, Rino and Siopis.

    I agree

    There both at least five years too young though.

    Why not. I'm sick of the threads on here debating the merits of young players after they have played 50 first team games, and all of the bullshit that goes with it. If this kid is showing promise, then put him in. lets see what he's about, not 4 or 5 years at the club pissing about and people on here making up the same excuses we've heard 100 times or more. I doubt he'll get much of a chance, although i hope he does, and when he does, i hope he shows it early. About time we had a player from the system show us something and give us all a boost.

    Better than discussing the merits of Kion Etete after like 100 league games

    Don't worry mate, we have to wait until he's at lest 26 before we can judge, because apparently, that's when strikers mature.

    Good point, it doesn't matter if he can't hit a barn door with a banjo yet in that case.

    Stop talking silly. His severe lack of ability, awareness, pace, intelligence can't be assessed until he's made 134 appearances.

    Main issue with Etete, he just isn't getting better. I mean, you could say that about every player we have but he's been here 18 months and he's the same player he was when he arrived.

    Yup, and i don't think thats on Bulut or the coaching staff, Although it is a worry how so many of our players are either off form or going backwards.

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    This is refreshing. Good discussion. I just found this about players who made their 1st team appearances at 17 years old (or under) and Federico Macheda popped up! There are some goodies on the list though. https://www.planetfootball.com/quick...league-man-utd

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    Bulut should have brought Ashford on second half v Leeds instead of that shocking excuse for a striker Meite
    We had nothing to lose 🧐

    The under 18s are 2-0 up against Bournemouth just before half time - Jake Davies and Trey George with the goals.

    Don't forget his lack of strength

    I hear that'll be sorted when he's 29 though so not long to wait

    3-0 at HT, Joseff Edwards with the 3rd

    Louis Phillips makes it 4=0, now 4-1.

  22. #3872

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    4-2 now, and both teams down to 10 after a "massive scuffle". Jac Thomas sent off.

  23. #3873

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    5-2 george with pen

    Ollie Denham recalled from Dundee United. No surprise as he barely played.
