    Bremang on the bench. Bakayoko not with the first team so he’s fallen right down the pecking order

    I heard Bakayoko both took the shot for them and deflected it in? :)

    Another promising group. 3 have already played up in the 18s in the opening 4 games. There is some real good work going on in these age groups, it’s one of the benefits of being at a Category 2 academy or one which doesn’t hold lots of players in age groups - there’s flexibility to play up the age groups

    There was no U18s game today - the next one is against Colchester at home next Saturday.

    The next U23 game is against Cardiff next Friday which is currently scheduled for a 1pm kick off at the AHC

    He's not far off a return but after having to come off at HT with a niggle in the last U23 game the staff want to make sure he's 100% before he's involved again

    Tomlin who was sent off is a decent championship player as is Anthony Pilkington. Not sure who else played

    U18s 2-1 Colchester and U16s 9-2 Colchester this afternoon

    The U23s are 4th after six games and the U18s are 4th after five games - the U18s have had to make do with two of their best players Burroughs and Ngandu being with the 23s too in most of them games.

    Building work coming along nicely at the Higgs

    Hot diggerty damn! Do I have to install Facebook to watch the game?

    I HATE Facebook. I just went on to Facebook and was hoping to just watch it on there on the IT page. Can I not just do that?

    This large investment in the U23 really seems to be paying dividends doesn't it...... Lost 5 of 8 so far.

    Again, no Ogogo, no Kelly. Might have been worth giving them some game time, but like I said on another thread, maybe Robins is fearful of them getting injured.

    It’s good to see our youngsters beating these prem teams imagine how much money they are spending compared to us.
