Just as bad mistake by Bilson
Colchester twitter say our keeper got the ball pinched off him him??
Jones sounds like he’s ready to go. Being managed back really well this time. Would love it if he scores the goal that sealed promotion.
bloody hell I refreshed and we were 4-2 up now 4-4 wtf
Yeah came out to intercept but forward nipped in
He's played well otherwise
They just missed a pen? Christ what a last 7 mins
Hiwula finds net from Jones through ball but offside
Did u cash out
4 4 FT
This is why you never bet on the U23s
Bet365 had them taking a pen for about 2 mins. Weird
No I kept going thinking we won't throw away a 2 goal lead with 8 mins to go. And then two howlers happened haha
That's strange nothing like that at all
When we equalised it originally said 2-0 Colchester. Weird one tonight.
Would struggle to get on our bench at the moment. Giles would be ahead of him. Not sure Robins is the sentimental type.
Quicker than Var!
You have a dabble?
Giles has clearly come in for Mason on the bench if you look at it before and after. Bigger point is he’s got Allen, O’Hare, Shipley or Westbrooke to displace.
Yeah, only a tenner. Wasn't gonna put more on an u23 game.
I think you’re correct here. I think Jones has been trained to play behind the striker now not cutting in as before. I see him as O’Hare’s backup/replacement.
4-4 !!! Take it Wakefield doesn’t work at centre back either then
Maybe he can play wing back. Not sure how disciplined he is. I thought he was a bit more attacking.
Shipley would be a decent shout for left wing back fill in. I'm u see impression Giles is much more attacking. More of a left sided of attacking 3.
Would be good if we can actually see him.
Just basing it on the rumour Wolves had sent him here cos they see him as a WB not a winger and the fact he’s been a straight swap for Mason on the bench. Our formation suits central attacking mids more than out and out wide men so unless there’s a change I’d be surprised to se him in the Shipley/O’Hare or Westbrooke/Allen role.
Our width going forward all comes from our WBs.
Think you've answered your own earlier query about lack of youngsters coming through this season.
Less need/space for them in the 1st team squad due to the depth we've not had for years.

Im not complaining obviously, but it’s be a real shame if the proper squad development meant we stunted the growth of the very players we rely on to survive financially.
Maybe it’s just an off year as well, many of the kids seem to have failed to break through to the U23s or are out on loan lower down.
There just seems to be a lot of fillers in the 23s atm taking up places of younger players who have more of a chance of playing in the first team.
Likes of Wakefield, Young and Bosma (Robins wanted to get rid of him a year and a half ago). Someone like Bremang has never played a first team minute in the 2 years he’s been here even in the Checkatrade despite scoring quite a few
But why play the filler if they aren’t going anywhere and there’s kids behind them?
You always need the supporting cast STP
Almost all age groups only have 2 or 3 lads who the management think have a chance long term
Of the current side I'd say it's Eccles for sure plus possibly Bilson and Newton
Apart from the lads out on loan I doubt anyone else in the U23s is currently looking like they could break through soon
I heard afterwards that he was supposed to be right back in a 4 with Bosma and Newton in the middle and Beezy left back
But throughout the game Mason was always advanced so we effectively had 3 at the back
Might explain why he's out of favour?
good old Clive...
Fillers are needed.
Without the Bosmas, Youngs, Wakefields etc we wouldn't be able to put an u23 side out and then there's no way of keeping fringe players/those returning from injury involved.
