    I just don't think Goncalves has played well, I am not sure he would have been any better in the middle.

    Looks like a 3-5-2 now with Goncalves as a #10. Still very poor though.

    0 - 2. BA-S again. :)

    Worth a spot on the bench?

    He’s gotta be close? These next few weeks will be his chance and I hope he gets it. Think we’ll strengthen in January and he may well be pushed back down the order again

    We desperately need a 'box' man....particularly when chasing a result.

    I reckon he is worth a go as we have little that can do this.

    I agree. From what I’ve seen of him he has a bit of everything, just unsure if he has enough of everything. Worth a start in the championship all day long but the prem is a different ball game.

    If we do strengthen up top in Jan then maybe a loan move would be best, although I’m less than convinced by our loan system at present!

    Goncalves is one of those players who could fail to realise his potential, has undoubted talents but its difficult to see where he can be most effective in the current system.

    From his instagram, Benny seems to spend quite a bit of time training with the first team. Personally I think it's better for him to stay with us, playing and scoring regular in the U23s and then getting Nuno's input once or twice a week, instead of going out to League Two or League One and having some clogger of a manager getting hold of him.

    I like Goncalves but I think his best position is centre mid. The problem atm anyway is I don't think from what I've seen that he does enough defending to play in a 2. He's great going forward, but when you think how much Neves does in a game even when we aint got the ball.

    I have seen him a few times now, the last against Man U last week. He is a big unit and has some strength. I am not sure he put in the amont of work I expected and he does appear to give up the chase a bit from the few times I have seen him. But he does appear to be in the right place to get the final touch. Personally I don't think he is ready for the premier league and he has the look of a player who will need some time in the lower leagues.

    Ennis look the much more talented player to me. More touch, control, and pace. I also thought Giles has the look of someone who could make the step up.

    Drew 1-1 against Swansea in the PL Cup this morning. Ennis scored. Swansea are in the division above us so it's a decent result.

    Why has the reporting become so **** again on the academy page? No team sheets for the last few u18's games and no team sheet or real reporting from the u23s game today. You would think the club would have far better reports on our academy teams than this current rubbish. It wasnt too bad a few weeks ago but I've noticed the last few weeks that the reporting has dropped considerably. Lets get this sorted out please Wolves!

    Any chance we can sticky this?

    U23 is too short a search term and it would be handy to have it close by at all times.

    Btw we rested quite a few today, there was no BAS, Ennis, Kilman, Diallo or Iorfa starting today. Edwards switched from 3412 to 343 which was interesting. Sauvage still couldn't get a start though :D

    a mixed team of fringe u23's, 2nd yr u18's plus Dom Iorfa & Ethan Ebanks-Landell played FC Jumilla today in a friendly. Jumilla had 8 of the 9 players on loan from us playing & they won 1-0 thanks to a goal from loanee Boubaca Hanne

    Yeah, played quite well when he came off the bench judging by Twitter.

    No idea who he is, mind.

    Yep. We also signed a central midfield player from Portugal but never announced it. He hasnt played many games for u23's yet but was on the bench yesterday, I think. Still no sign of Kitolano .

    I hope he pushes on but he has to step up now and not be one of those who just sits there before going out on loan and then getting released.We have had too many of those over the years.I wish him well but time will tell.

    We need players who can play for our u23’s too. I’ve said this so many times. We can’t have 18 players from our u23’s step up to the first team. That’s not the way things work.

    I know but we have stepped up the quality of our recruitment so I hope more go on to make the grade.Too many have stagnated ,gone on loan and then been released .

    Nuno seems to see something in Buur which is good. He isnt ready for the first team yet but he clearly has ability to develop.
