was watching them train today and while obviously theyre a long way off, Kazenga LuaLua, James Troisi and a central.. midfielder called Callum.... something, impressed me. Their touch and (in Troisi and Callums case) vision were a good deal above that of their team-mates. LuaLua is a carbon copy of his older brother though, head down, beating people for fun but a weak end product. There was 1 monet of genius where he beat two or three people pulled back the trigger bus slipped a pass through for a team-mate instead. Had one guy on the floor trying to block the shot and the other was just totally bamboozled, unfortunately the other player loosed a weak shot and it came to nothing.

I watched Paul Huntington earlier this season and was overly impressed with his communication skills and his ability to distribute a ball. Definitely a Woodgate type of player in terms of build and mobilty, I hope he's pushing Taylor / Bramble within the next few seasons if he is treat right by our staff.

Hopefully Huntington can push on like Taylor, and David Edgar as well for defence, and Pattison for midfield

I bet that'll me a massive ratings boost for Sky.

 

To be honest, it's the first U21 fixture I've seen advertised, despite Sky making them part of the marketing campaign

Peter Beardsley's side were due to face the Potters at Macclesfield Town's Moss Rose on Friday, 14th November.

But the match has now been moved forward by 24 hours and switched to the Britannia Stadium.

 

The game will now be played on Thursday, 13th November with a 7pm kick-off.

 

So is it Thursday or Friday? Or possibly Saturday if it's "moved forward"? Must have someone in on work experience again.
