    Don't remember noticing Owen Barker in any previous youth games but he showed some good skill at various points in this one.

    No news on the OS about the U21 game today being televised for members, but Darren Griffiths did mention at the WSW game that he and Snodin were covering the Mansfield match next week.

    Looked alright this half, Patterson some good attacking but some gaping holes behind both full backs that a better team would take advantage of. Price has been impressive but is another one who needs a bit of advice about giving away silly fouls in dangerous places. Gray has not been bad...

    Positives from the match. Keane and Holgate both weren't bad. Price, despite the appalling tackle and being caught in possession a few times, did alright for a youngster. Be interesting to see him go out on loan somewhere. And Begovic was competent.

    Passing and crosses are not even League One standard. Another game where we haven't had one effort on target?

    Change Maupay for Cannon and McNeil for Mills. Can't be any worse. No way I want to see Davies or Doucoure coming on. Added: change Gray for Gordon if you want another ineffective winger.

    Cook out of control, studs up and not even a yellow. Then the stoppage for a 'head injury' to the chest. We are appalling but the referee is somehow even worse.

    Simms does a lot of trotting around off the ball (as does Rondon). Maupay, on the other hand, is a scrappy little git. All of them not particularly prolific but if you want someone to press and niggle and unsettle a defence (rather than play long balls up to) then Maupay is probably your choice.

    Likewise Joe Anderson and possibly Lewis Warrington. Just enjoy watching them at the youth levels and wish them well when they leave.

    2022/23 Vitalii Mykolenko

    One of his best games today. He's a bit stuffed attacking as Gray is so easy to read for defenders (receive ball, check back and pass back to defender/try and go infield and cross with right foot).

    Players Out on Loan 2022/23

    He seemed to have a problem with his shoulder after that clearance. I thought he might have injured his leg as one of the Arsenal players landed heavily on it, but he was holding his arm and shoulder a few times after that.

    Players Out on Loan 2022/23

    Branthwaite substituted. Quiet effective match mostly up against Nketiah. Nice performance against good PL players for someone who is still only 20.

    I pretty much gave it up this season after a few years of updates and was hoping someone would take it on, so many thanks to @Sona for his work. Just a few updates from me on the younger guys on foreign loans if I can pick up any foreign language stuff that hasn't already been covered.

    Really? When he and his co-commentator hadn't even bothered to find out that Gordon was being rested for feeling under the weather?

    Gave MOTM to Coady for generally sound defence and scoring. Was tempted at various points to go for Gueye or Maupay, but Gueye's performance seemed to go steadily downhill after a great first half and Maupay's welcome niggling wasn't enough to make up for some misses. Marriner was awful...

    A decent game to watch but thought they were comprehensively outplayed tonight. Could easily have been 4-0 or 5-0 and I can't really remember their keeper having to make a decent save. Set-pieces were pretty bad compared to Fulham. Mills was easily the best of the bunch, but midfield seemed...

    Yes, I think it is whoever is eligible for the members' area on the official site.

    Would have voted for Iwobi but had to give it to Gray for his effort and play today. Thumbs up for Maupay's first goal, the overall defence and Gueye. Not sure about Onana today, seemed to be coasting a bit and would have liked to see more attacking play from him.

    Thanks, for some reason they have it marked up the same as the league matches.
