    Rampage reacted to Ghost of Clough in U23s thread   
    A large chunk of the team you've listed need to be playing regular first team football. 20 is my cut off point for letting youths stay in the U23s. Bennett is a regular first team player (bench more than starting XI) already but you want to send him back to the U23s? Lowe, Elsnik and Thomas have had successful loan spells out this season after proving they're a level above U23s, but you want to see them stifled in the U23s and play little competitive first team football? If we don't go up, Bird will be a first team squad player.
    22 - Bennett 
    21 - Ravas, Gordon, Lowe, MacDonald
    20 - Bateman, Elsnik
    19 - Thomas, Hunt (20 next Wednesday) , Mitchell-Lawson
    18 - Bird
    17 - Sibley
     
    Out of all of those, I'd expect all to be playing first team football (with us or out on loan) with the exception of Sibley and Hunt.
    Bennett, Lowe, Thomas and Bird have a good chance of being with the first team squad next year. Sibley and Hunt to have another year in the U23s with the rest loaned out.
    Others at the 20+ mark are: McAllister, Barnes, Karic, Wassall, Babos, Shonibare (may have missed someone). These lads should be looking at getting first team experience out on loan.
    It'll be a big turnover of players but still leaves us with a decent squad:
    Goalkeepers Yates French Defenders Rashid Hunt Minkley Buchanan K Macdonald A Brown Midfielders Sibley Knight Dixon J Brown Forwards Cresswell Whittaker Wilson

    Form and under 23’s boosted at the start of the season when Thorne, Butterfield, Pearce, Anya regular turned out as we sought to put them in the shop window. As well as returning first teamers looking for match fitness or coming back from injury; the latter could still apply but can’t think of many that have turned out.
    We also have a fair few out on loan and odd ones stepping up to match day squads near first team games. So in a nutshell, more under 18’s also stepping up. Bound to have an impact on form.
    For me, so long as they do enough to stay in Prem2, as a good standard to learn, results don’t matter as much; it’s all about younger kids getting experience and testing themselves ready ultimately for the first team.

    We hammered Hull and scored 6 goals in two league games. They came here in play offs and won 3 nil then 3-2 on aggregate. Hopefully, Leeds would be a similar scenario. Can pigs fly? If not, why not? Beating Leeds would be nice. 🐖✈️😎

    Man City 14 players used last night cost £441 million. Man Utd 14 players used cost £427 million. Looked £400 million difference in quality. What the Man City 14 players could be sold for is mind-boggling. The motivation and work rate of such talented players at City is a joy to behold. Getting the best out of players is difficult. Frank Lampard will have a collection of players that are highly motivated and vedy highly talented. Let us hope that it is at Pride Park. We are getting glimpses of it. Who had heard of Fikayo and thought he would be player of the year? Who would have started and stuck with Bogle?

    I can’t stop looking at the table and fixtures, working out conundrums. 
    Looking at the remaining fixtures Boro are favourites for 6th to me cos despite us and Bristol having a game in hand, boro’s two remaining games are against Reading at home, who are safe, and then at Rotherham who will very likely have been relegated by the last game either by losing at West Brom or Millwall picking something up against Bristol.
    That would mean Boro finish on 73 points, meaning we'd need to pick up at least 6 points - if not 7- from our last three depending on goal difference. Ours and Bristol’s 3 games are very awkward.
    I do think if we can make it confidence will be high and I’d put money on us beating Leeds. COYR 🐏

    What an atmosphere that was. The noise during the first half was something else, hairs on the back of yer head stuff, Went a bit quiet second half but the tension late on was tremendous.
    Had a good drink round town tonight and the feeling was its our year.

    I can't help thinking Bristol is the big one. Swansea could be forgiven fir being on the beech and hate Bristol only fractionally less than Cardiff.
    WBA I think will be phoney war, them not giving 10/10ths but looking at us a warm up match for the play offs.

    Seven points and we are in play offs probably against Leeds. COYR. 
    Swansea won 5 of their last 6. Draw there hopefully after beating Bristol on Saturday then all down to WBA. Would be nice. Could be a goal difference decider. 🙏😎

    3 hard earned points against a team set up defend and counter.
    Nowhere near our best today, but who cares?
    The atmosphere ramped up when the 9 minutes added time was shown and really seemed to boost the players and to see all 4 stands bounce at the end was special. Well done to all who stayed to the end and help get the 3 points.

    Rampage reacted to Carl Sagan in Derby County vs QPR   
    For the Brum game, their fans said we kept passing it from side to side across the back and then just hoofed it long, bypassing our creative midfield and playing into their hands. And they were largely right. I thought we did that again in the first half today, but in the second half I thought we were much better in the transition. That said, as we reached 90 minutes we just went long, Roos hoofing it from the back. Bennett whose touch was really poor came into his own getting on the end of some long clearances with good headers.
    My stats cut off the corner count which was 8-2 to us, often an indication of the balance of a game. That said, many of QPR's best chances came from our corners.
    No surprise at Lawrence's and Johnson's passing stats but disappointing to see Mount's. Need a big performance from him on Saturday.
    Just looked at the table and if everything went our way (again), a win next weekend could see us in the playoffs!!!! It's that close.
    I don't expect a win. Derby never do anything the easy way.
