    He's u21 so doesn't need to be registered

    Played for the reserves that drew 3-3. Him, cedrick, willock and Nelson. We’re losing 3-1 vs a very young Man U team. It’s concerning start for sure

    Does the u21 rule only apply to domestic/home grown players?

    Needs context. How often has that XI played together? Takes a few games to build understanding on the pitch.

    Our team had more than 2 years on them on average. United team average was 17.7 which is extremely young. I think 0utside 2 players rest were 18 or under

    Will wait until after I have seen the highlights to pass judgement but to be fair when I saw our £30m rising star centre half line up against a few kids I wasn't expecting to see us ship 3 goals.

    Does he get promoted now that Holding is injured? This might be his moment.

    I like watching this guy as he talks a lot about the U-23 games.

    Doesn’t sound like he did terribly.

    Yeah, they don't have much choice. Soyuncu is injured for 3 months. Wes Morgan is 36 and ****. Amartey is injured too for a few weeks who has played there some.

    So they didn't loan him and didn't register for the EL games either? :lol:

    In all fairness we expected to loan him out to St Etienne again but admin flopped - which is common knowledge.

    Then we planned to loan him out to a championship club and interviewed a number of clubs extensively who were actually very interested in taking him.

    In the end - we wasn’t convinced and it was decided he was better off training here and staying with the squad until January. Source - Charles Watts.

    The optics aren’t great? But I think the club are being very careful with him and considering he was largely viewed as our saviour for CB it was a very good call. No way he was going to live up to all of that no matter how good he is.

    Laca, Pepe, Saliba...
    It seems our Ligue 1 scouts were just rubbish, thanks god they all got sacked.
    Glad we didn't buy Aouar as well.

    I think it's cos Ligue 1 produce so many world class players that the best go to the top teams so we have to feed on the scraps.
