      Jones is head and shoulders above that level now. Would love us to wrap the Premier League title up very early and give decent minutes in the league to him and two or three others.

      Guessing this will not include many, if any, of the players who featured on Monday. Might be more like the League Cup lineup vs. Villa minus Harvey. I think at least a few of Monday's team, Williams, Larouci, Jones, Elliott, Chirivella will next play or be on the bench for the Shrewsbury match a week Sunday.

      My last post has me thinking, has there been a U23 match all season where a first team regular who needed a game has featured for the younger team? I can't think of a single time. In the old days with the Reserves it wasn't an unusual thing at all. It's still possible I know as Michael Rudiger played against us for Chelsea's U23 team earlier this season.

      I wonder if J├╝rgen values the midweek training game the team plays as a more useful match fitness exercise for veterans (and even some of the younger players who train with the first team). A guy like Joel Matip for instance who has been training for a week or so now but might not get a game for a bit would be a situation where you'd think he could play a match for the U23s (or in a bounce game behind closed doors), but I'm not sure J├╝rgen ever does this.

      Pretty sure most of the players and Pep have said many times that training intensity is at match level or what's the point so you're probably right Rob.

      J├╝rgen does think training is better for them than playing at u23s level.

      Very interesting about analytics at the U23 level (and even younger). I wonder if it was involved in the recruitment of Joe Hardie.

      Seems like a pretty thoughtful guy and definitely involved in synthesizing the numbers and the eyeball evaluations.

      Wigan up 1-0 on a corner. Apparently when their players move into the 6-yard box on a set piece, someone is supposed to mark those.

      Watching the U18s rout Sunderland, 3-0 at 82 minutes.

      Layton Stewart has two and he looks a very good prospect. Tom Hill scored the other.

      Center back Remi Savage has also impressed today - and midfielder Tyler Morton who I don't remember seeing before, has a good football brain.

      The third goal for Stewart alone is worth it, but the team played well throughout.
