    LOL.. I have worked with IT for 25 years and also didnt know at first.. and still dont know if I am doing it right. I save the pic from whatever website, makes this whole window smaller and move the pic into this frame, and then press "full image". Does not work with copy and paste. Maybe my solution is not the "proper way" to do it, but it works..

    anyone heard anything about u23 players going out on loan, I'm going to assume (by their recent absences from the u23's) that Deslandes & Wilson are on the way out somewhere?.... I notice that Eastleigh have extended Odoffins' loan until the end of the season, wondering if Gloucester will do the same with Finnie.

    We are winning 3-0. Donovan Wilson has come on after a few weeks out injured and scored twice. One apparently a brilliant goal and the other with a fantastic piece of skill from Gibbs-White for the assist.

    Still very much in the running for a play-off place.
    Would be great if we could get promoted - it would be a great shot in the arm for our academy and youth policy. [​IMG]

    Finished 1-1.

    I followed the game at Bet365 live betting.
    We seemed to have been better first half, but Everton were slightly better second half.

    Stats total:

    Attacks: 75-71
    "Dangerous attacks": 35-32
    Shots on goal: 3-8
    Shots not on goal: 13-6
    Corners: 4-7
    Possession%: 53-47

    Sounded like Ruddy was kept busy in the 2nd half. I was following on the Everton site

    In terms of numbers, how does our academy compare to others? are we short of numbers?

    We have a hell of a lot of players playing above their natural ages, which inevitably reduces the quality of the team they left behind. It is great seeing the young lads progress from the u18's to the 23's and even the first team but it does seem to have left a big void in the u18's. They are getting beaten week in week out.

    In addition they have just been spread even thinner by playing (and getting spanked) in a German tournament. Surely getting spanked every week by older lads is detrimental to their development?

    I think it is detrimental as you say but there are people here who always say results don't matter at that level. I think that is nonsense. These boys need to develop their confidence - being smashed by older age group players will have exactly the opposite effect. Of course the results matter even if the underlying effort is to improve individuals so that they can challenge for a place higher up the food chain.

    12 months ago people were complaining about the u23s doing badly, now 12 months on things look far more rosey.

    There are a number of u16s playing at the moment who in 12 months time will be a little bit bigger and tougher. Im not going to worry too much about them at the moment.

    Wolves Under 23s travel to Newcastle United in a Monday night PL2 clash.

    Scott Sellars' side are currently fourth in the league table after 13 fixtures but have two games in hand over the teams above them.

    The Under 23s' last outing was a 1-1 PL Cup draw with Everton, who are currently top of PL2 Division 1.

    Wolves' last league fixture was a 3-0 win over Blackburn Rovers at the New Bucks Head earlier this month.

    Newcastle approach Monday's game following a 3-1 PL2 defeat to, league leaders, Swansea City.

    The young Magpies are one place and one point ahead of Wolves in the table.

    WOLVES
    Daniel Armstrong, Anthony Breslin, Rory Brown, Nicu Carnat, Joe Delacoe, Sylvain Deslandes, Cameron John, Connor Johnson, Ryan Leak, Conor Levingston, Dan McKenna, Duckens Nazon, Will Randall, Jack Ruddy, Aaron Simpson, Elliot Watt & Donovan Wilson.
