northern league lads signed for u23's

Recommended Posts

had a think about this approach and i can see quite a few positives in the wing and Armstrong signings.

 

first off they were stand out players at the level, now they will be given this marvelous opportunity to join up with a club in the top leagues. their drive and determination will hopefully rub off on the privileged few who end up at academies before falling away into obscurity. without the proper attitude and application you end up like porritt. hopefully our young prospects can learn a lot from them.

The micky mouse cup our u23's entered last season might have been a cause for concern. resulting in this change in strategy. we were battered by league 2 sides. not through lack of ability or technique but more overwhelmed by their determination desire and work rate also playing to the strengths of their teammates. rather than the plodding possession style these academy lads get brainwashed with. 

now we are maybe thinking like a few have mentioned across the forums, we are looking for the next jamie vardy. looking for young lads with massive desire and drive to come in and thrive at the chance of playing for the BORO. 

unlike the usual academy lads who just accept it as the norm. fail to impress and end up none league and have to start again.

Armstrong was our player wasn't he and we released him? So he's just an ex academy player who has been re-signed.

 

We're just getting players in with the required experience for when we're down playing at that level.

:D  come on, at that level. its nothing like that is it. 

i think we see more chance of getting a player with a better attitude from lower leagues/none league. its pointless keeping top coaches for the kids if they are more interested in fifa. get these rough diamonds in and polish them up. talent is nothing without the right attitude to go with it.

    • Well very pleased to see England close the day on 156-3. Very controlled and patient batting for most of the day from Root and Denly have gotten us to this stage. Stokes in the last hour of the day came into bat at 5 in survival mode and made 2 runs (not out) off 50 balls. The first session of tomorrow's play will decide the outcome of this test match (and the Ashes). If Stokes and Root can survive the first 8 overs of play unscathed. At which point the new ball is available to Australia. They will then have to contend with the new ball and the threats that come with it. If they can get to lunch unscathed after the new ball I think that is when the test becomes ours to lose. At this stage I'd happily take England scoring 30 runs all session if it meant losing no wickets. It will also be England's highest ever run chase if we are successful.
    • Our problem has been that we just don't score goals, we've been amongst the lowest scorers in the championship both pre and post our 1 season recently in the PL. This season, although it's early on, seems to be going the same way. While Britt does get goals, he's not what you'd call prolific, we've been set up as a defensive team for a few years now through different managers and scoring has been an added bonus to not conceding goals.
    • No worse than some of the goals our players have missed, and he also scored today. Hugill has scored 3 goals so far this season. That's more than our top scorers. Imagine if he'd scored at the same rate for us as he is now - we might have gone up! Not sure what we do to our strikers - they always seem to do well for everyone else but do less well for us. Bamford a possible exception as he did well for us, although he's really banging them in for Leeds at the moment.   
    • Great read 👍 Think I've seen some Twitter posts from you in the past. Keep it up!
    • https://mobile.twitter.com/SkyBetChamp/status/1165369720008314885 i’m quite impressed by this from hugill. How has he done this?
