They already kind of do this by letting U23 teams play in the EFL Trophy.

This season we missed out on qualification from the group stages due to playing an ineligible player, I think.

Bit like the first team by not taking chances.

Ashby scores again and then Oko-Flex with a great goal.

The knocking on Moyes door is getting louder.

Oko-Flex's goal was delightful.

The Goalkeeper has had an absolute howler with Ashby's freekick! :lol:

I thought he was outstanding tonight, a man amongst boys.
That's part of the problem, IMHO - the level of intensity and physicality of the boys in PL2 is just worlds away from playing in an adult league - it's an absolutely massive step up from playing against a bunch of frail waifs to battling against some lightning fast or physically intimidating adult forward.

Alese is a man amongst boys. Though, I'm not sure if he is tall enough for a Moyes centre back

Chesters is a talent, made a real difference when he came on. Set up the third goal. Does everything at pace, very direct.

longello, alese, baptiste and okoflex are the next ones in line for a chance in the first team/squad.

trouble is we need players now but I think we may see them more next season.

Oko-Flex's goal last night was awesome. Sounds like he's been doing very well in the U23s. Can't help but worry if he could be this year's Nathan Holland though. Hopefully, will get a shot at first-team action soon.

The defending and the goalkeeping is very ordinary. I would say highlights like that tell us very little about how ready he may be to play any sort of role in the Premier League.

Top class goal just now from Perkins. Superb finish but great spin and turn by Nevers to set it up

Baptiste on the bench? Surprising.

Our goal was class, would like to see more of Nevers

Been injured

I think Nevers would have been more involved on the first team bench (over Perkins) but he has been out as well

I agree, reminded me of a typical Harry Kane finish
