Our side was literally younger than yours, and we also made 8 changes. 

Sorry, you're not having that. 

That isn't true, but its not exactly a huge difference in terms of the ages of both squads. You can only beat what is put in front of you. You put out a very young team who looked a lot better than ours even if it did include 3 of our u18s players. Those u18s and maybe Hamer as well are the only players who aren't usually around the first team squad or in the first 11 - even Buchanan has played a couple of times in the league. It just seems petty when we can't accept we were well beaten by making excuses about  the youth.

Forest - average age 23.81

Johnson - 18

Semedo - 21

Worrall - 22

Ribeiro - 22

Mir - 22

Cash - 22

Figueiredo - 25

Samba - 25

Lolley - 27

Bostock - 27

Adomah - 31

 

 

Derby - Average Age 22.09

Sibley - 17

Whittaker - 18

Buchanan - 18

Clarke - 22

Holmes - 24

Evans - 24

Paterson - 27

Shinnie - 28

Hamer - 31

Davies - 34

 

 

 

 

 

Bennett - 23

Fair point. I even fact checked the ages, seems you're right in what you posted. 

Still, 3-0 and no shots on target.. 

Midget CM at RB coming back from injury, midfield of strangers and forward line of 18yr olds with Bennett who isn't really a CF. We could replay the fixture 10 times and we'd win 0. Maybe we'd score a couple of times? Not sure.

How many first team games would probably give a better impression of the difference between the two teams. For example we had three players under the age of 20, with I think 3 first team appearances between them.

Fairly similar to be honest (roughly 1500 league games), although ours is skewed heavily by Davies, Paterson and Shinnie.

The difference though is the number of players with first team experience. They had one player who is in his debut season (Johnson), whereas we had Buchanan, Sibley and Whittaker.
