    Not sure I can agree with him being MotM but he did do well against the odds and he showed yet again the quality that i think will help him make it to the top.He has a big heart. Of course he is especially gifted on the ball but it's that desire and effort that is so important.There was one occasion where he was tussling for the ball with Sakho, which of course is a complete mismatch in terms of size and weight , but he just battled and battled without giving a foul away until the ball broke with Sakho on the deck. Loved that.

    Interesting line up in the U23's comp, experienced goalie and back four (albeit 3 them still young) and then young exciting very attack minded midfield and forwards.
    Currently 3rd in the table after 2 games (we lost at home to Hull 1-2 in the first) but with a game in hand on top (Hull):

    Goalkeeper Ian Lawlor made his first start of the season.

    Captain James Horsfield, Cameron Humphreys, Tosin Adarabioyo and Angelino were the defence protecting Lawlor’s goal.

    Will Patching sat at the base of the midfield behind Paolo Fernandes and Brahim Diaz while Luke Bolton and Isaac Buckley-Ricketts flanked central striker Joe Hardy.

    Substitutes: Haug, Rosler, Duhaney, Smith, Dele-Bashiru

    I would guess that it's a competition we don't value highly hence it's being used to give some a chance even though as stated it's a pretty experienced back 5. Delighted to see Joe Hardy get a game and score the first key goal as he seems to be the one who has missed out a lot in 18's games.

    Also interesting to see Isaac starting on the left and getting a hat trick. I am still not 100% sure what his best position is but as a wide attacking player is looking like it.

    I follow the EDS very loosely and have heard loads more about Brahim and Paolo Fernandes than Phil Foden. Can someone who knows more about the youth setup say why Foden got on the bench in that game against Celtic over some of the other guys?

    Diaz and Sancho aren't registered for the CL squad as they haven't been at the club long enough (neither is Aleix Garcia). It was probably just personal preference that Pep picked Foden over Fernandes to be on the bench.
