Everton Youth Teams Thread


Player Valuation: £15m
Just watching the arsenal match and I can see they have a few decent youngsters, as have Man U who have named a few in their team for tonight’s Europa League match. My question is who do we have that is really knocking on the door for the first team? Surely given our recent success at the youth levels we must have a plethora of talented youngsters looking to breakthrough?

To be honest is the negative football and playing a totally different system to the first team. Now whatever system we all think is the best system to play. Silva & Brands decide the style and sign players to implement it. Unsworth to me plays a David moyes style. And surely it should be the same all the way through the club.

Don’t get me wrong the under 23’s have some talented players IE Gordon and can play good football, but I remember towards last season when they were going for the league, it was all long ball and defensive tactics. And the cup final against Newcastle, was a shocking performance. Once we went one up, he took an attacker off and shut up shop. I think Newcastle even went down to 10 and we still didn’t really change, we got lucky as the missed a late pen. All the goalkeeper did was kick it long to the striker. Hornby I think it was.

It’s like someone said imagine Gordon training with the under 23’s and learning a defensive style while watching the ball go over his head on match days. At a very important time (17 to 19) of his development. And then he goes up to the first team, and is then training and playing a totally different style and system.

Luckily it looks like he’s already training with the first team. Maybe I’m being harsh on unsworth. But before Brands it didn’t seem anyone was on the same page. Koeman, Walsh, unsworth, the under 18. Abs that needs to change.
I was at that Newcastle game, terrible, Newcastle had most of the game after Feeney scored, the game was very poor,I was terrifyed Newcastle were going to equalise and Imwould have been stuck there for another thirty minutes of boring football !!!

That would be incorrect. I believe it was Swans U23 manager that made a comment that they were older after their loss last year.
Championship sides will inevitably have younger sides, partly because they're more likely to have pushed people into the first team at a lower level (don't forget our best young players tend to be loaned out to the level that these teams are actually playing at) and partly because they can't afford to keep hold of players, and so release them earlier. We used to do that in the Moyes days, but once the financial pressures were eased we were happy to keep players for longer to see if they came good.

I don't know about the average age of the average team, but when people were going mad on here about the team we put out against Leicester in the first game of the season, it was pointed out that Leicester had a 22 year old and 5 21 year olds playing, I think their youngest starter was 19.
