    Sonny-Blu Lo-Everton has gone to Yeovil in the National League until January, I thought he'd go a bit higher than that so hopefully he gets a chance in the EFL after that!

    Odd one. I thought he'd get offers higher up the ladder.

    Very surprised that we couldn't get a loan in L1 or L2 for him.

    Could just be game time related? If Yeovil and Sarll, who has a prior relationship with the club (even if it’s controversial), are offering him good game time for half a season that could be a shop window for a league club to show an interest in January.

    Only 18 isn't he? Plenty of time for league football yet. It will do him good to live miles away from home for 5 months or so, playing against some absolute neanderthals in the National League.

    Seems he has been at Yeovil for a week so will be settled.

    Liked working with Sarll before.

    Another solid performance apparently according to Gills fans from Dan Phillips. Did everything required in midfield although they play very direct to two forwards so time with the ball is at a minimum. Did well in their League Cup tie as well and looks to be settling in well. Played the full ninety.

    Minutes for JP? Maybe a bit too early.

    Good to see Ryan Cassidy back and scoring after long term injury .

    Baah and a “trialist” also scored .

    Cassidy's goal was only a penalty.

    I'm guessing the trialist is that Chikukwa bloke from Leeds.

    Fair point although Champions league teams missed some in the week so its not that easy to score from the spot.

    U23’s getting creamed 6-0 by Huddersfield after only 30 minutes. It’s like Harry Kewell never left.

    Drew the second half. That's all you can ask from the lads, positive result in the end.

    That does seem to happen a lot - you get loads in one half then hardly any in the 2nd.

    I presume anyone half decent is out on loan or away on International duty with this lot making up the numbers?

    I think a number of them have been training with the first team this week. The Ranieri influence is starting to show already.

    Hopefully not the ones playing tonight !

    Guess some would be filling in for those who have gone away on International duty /injured in the first team .

    Pretty sure I've seen Angelini, Conteh, Agyakwa, Janjeva, Wise and O'Brien with the first team this week. The first four started tonight.

    Huddersfield went home at half time.
  24. Ranieri out !

    Do Huddersfield have a particularly good youth set-up? Pretty sure they're one of those teams who got rid of their academy to form a B team like Brentford, but I couldn't tell you who has come through their system of late.

    I look at some of the players in our U23s, and I wonder what the point of them being there is, Cassidy fair enough is coming back from a pretty serious injury last season, but we've seen bits of Agyakwa and Crichlow in senior football, and of course you'd hope Baah will be loaned out to at least League 1 level sooner rather than later. The likes of Morris played for us in pre-season, and ostensibly he is our 3rd choice LB, and while I haven't seen this game, it doesn't sound like a good sign this season...

    @Hogg-DEENEY!!! -They used to but as you say not sure about now.

    Still to lose 6-0 to anyone with a strong under 23s side is worrying as you say .

    Bayli Spencer-Adams signs for Leicester. Interesting

    Funny how things work out. Released by us, couldn't get a deal at Burnley or Colchester but ends up at Leicester. Good luck to him, massive opportunity for him now.

    Surely he’s just there as a U23 squad filler?

    He looked pretty good in his FA cup appearance for us, I thought.

    Agreed, I thought somewhere like Colchester would have been really good for him, but apparently it wasn't to be for whatever reason. Looks like he's U23 filler, but he's still a baby for a defender really
