other than JJK Bowler seems to be the only one who may do something this season, not tearing up trees but seems to be growing in influence and is getting regular game time, good on ya ladChampionship
Hull City - Josh Bowler started and was substituted in the 71st minute of a 4-0 home win over Preston North End
OS Match Report
"Preston goalkeeper Declan Rudd kept out another Grosicki effort with Bowen finding the surface too tricky to get on the end of the rebound, while Rudd was also forced to turn Bowler’s effort over the bar."
"The Tigers were offered the opportunity to double their lead three minutes into the second half – and they took it. Grosicki played Bowler into the box and when he went down under Ryan Ledson’s challenge, the referee immediately pointed to the spot. Magennis stepped up and found the net from 12 yards despite the best efforts of Rudd who got a good hand on the Northern Ireland international’s effort."
"Long saved from Billy Bodin at the other end but the home side were soon back on the attack as Bowler sent a powerful drive narrowly wide."
"A first substitution came 19 minutes from time as George Honeyman replaced the impressive Bowler."
41' - Bowler forces a save out of Rudd! The fleet-footed winger dances along the box before cutting onto his right and bending it towards goal, forcing the Preston 'keeper to tip it over.
47' - HULL CITY PENALTY!!!! Josh Bowler is fouled in the box!!!
51' - HULL CITY GOAL!!! What a beautiful bit of play between Bowler, Magennis and Bowen to tee up Grosicki, who makes no mistake from 6 yards!!!
54' - Two more chances for the Tigers to make it four! Grosicki pulls the ball back looking for Bowen who can't quite reach it, before Bowler drives at the Preston defence on the next attack and bends a venomous effort just over. What a goal that would've been.
56' - Josh Bowler is causing havoc for Preston. The winger has been lively all night and has really come alive in this second half. A poor challenge from Gallagher on the Tigers' winger after a weaving run sees him shown a yellow card.
"Another poor cross from bowler Very wasteful"
"Bowler is having a good game."
Matthew Pennington was an unused substitute.
I’d say having JJK, Davies, Holgate and DCL in the first team/squad next season - whilst no golden crop - is still a very successful academy stint. We bought two of them in but they were young lads and still spent time in the U23’s.Doesn't seem to be a golden crop at the moment. Hopefully JJK can be our first choice right back next season. Always good to have a few Merseysiders in the team.
Does anyone think Dowell still has a chance of being at least a squad player at Everton? He's knocking on a bit now for a "youngster".
He's got a few people to knock out of the way before he is played in attacking midfield - including Iwobi and Davies, without considering Sigurdsson or Bernard (or Gordon or any other current youth player). I doubt that he is suddenly going to transform himself into a ball-winning tiger in the middle of the park...a new manager comes in, plays him in the PL and he becomes amazing
