- Not 100% sure at the moment...
I'm in total agreement there bud. I was mulling over this at work last night and the only solution I can see is a change in management to try and wake up the youngsters. There's no way they're bringing anyone back from loan as (as you say) that would be to their detriment, perhaps Delap coming back from injury will make a difference as he does look a handful despite his age.Its a fair point, but I'm not sure that them losing every week is good for their development either, I think there is a lack of balance here, too many underage players getting beat every week isn't helping their cause much.
That might not be the coach, but it could be.
We should also remember that we have quite a number of players who would be playing at this level if here, playing elsewhere on loan at a higher level, surely that is good experience for them, even if its not for the 16/17/18 year olds playing U23 football.
Of course it could just all be a cunning plan by the management using tough love to teach the lads. Let them get deep into trouble at the start of the season and then explain how to get back out of it. (Yes, this is hopelessly optimistic :) )
