U23 Development League 2017/2018

Recommended Posts

Stats updated.  A tight 1-0 win with a late Lyden winner.  A scramble in the box after a Borg cross turned into some pinball.  Back up to 3rd we go.

Other results tonight.

Blackburn 4-0 Fulham
Newcastle 0-1 Wolves
West Brom 0-1 Southampton

Couldn't make it to the game with a touch of the dreaded man-flu, but it was a decent watch on the youtube thing - Brighton will consider themselves unlucky having hit the bar twice, but we created the better chances. I thought Blackett-Taylor (who is now just Taylor?) was excellent for an hour or so, Doyle-Hayes is playing with a real confidence and was also really good and Harry McKirdy looked a threat. Also, I'd have to say that Sarkic looks a very competent keeper.

Good stuff.

Good to get it on YouTube, and an interesting watch. Doyle-Hayes and McKirdy stood out, and Suliman and Sarkic also looked good.

Well now, I'm confused. 

There's a thing called the Premier League 2 Cup - we're in it. We played our opening game tonight against the Albion and won 3-1.

Who sneaked that in!!?!?

Umpteen articles telling us Messi's FIFA 18 rating, but not a single mention of this game on the OS, or for that matter in the Forest programme. 

Suliman, Lyden and McKirdy scored for us.

A couple of venue changes for the front page:

The game against Blackburn on the 20th November will now be at Keys Park, where Hednesford Town play - as will the Premier League 2 cup games against Sheffield United on 4th December and the one against Ipswich on 12th February.

A better day for Villa against Wolves this time around.  A 2-0 win along with Blackburn being held 2-2 moves us back into 2nd place in the table.  Also with Boro's first loss of the season coming on Sunday, it means we're back in the hunt for the title.

Jack Grealish returned from his long term kidney injury and got an encouraging hour under his belt.  There is still doubt over the scorer of our 2nd goal.  Some thought it might be Jordan Lyden, but with the announcer and the OS both going with a McKirdy brace, we'll go with that until told otherwise. It has now been confirmed that Lyden got the second goal with McKirdy getting the first.  Lyden's 4th league goal of the season.  James Finnerty came in for his first start of the season and provided the assist for McKirdy's goal.

Gameweek 7 results.

Fulham 2-1 Stoke City
Middlesbrough 3-4 Reading
Norwich 1-1 West Brom
Brighton 2-2 Blackburn
Southampton 6-2 Newcastle
Wolves 0-2 Aston Villa

Definitely Lyden BOF.

OK I've modified that.  Hopefully they'll clear it all up any way.

Middlesbrough have dropped more points.  This time a 2-2 draw away to Brighton.  So a win for us this evening puts us within a point of the top.

Actually it's on Reading's Facebook page.
