    Probably being tapped up as we speak...

    17 year old defender Bogdan Marian has joined Tring Athletic (Tier 9) on loan. No news of the length of deal that I can find.

    Marian was formerly a keeper but now plays in defence, full-back I think.

    He has started both 1st team games played this season, a 2-1 league win over Ardley United and a 1-3 loss against Roman Glass St George in a FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie. So that's him cup-tied then. Bugger.

    No wonder we keep being hammered in the Under 23s etc - most seem to be out on loan.

    Which is no bad thing if they do make it here to test themselves in Mens football.

    Imagine if he turns out to be amazing, could sack off having a sub keeper.

    I remember Warnock did that with Sheff Utd, used to rate Michael Tonge as a decent keeper so didn't bother with a recognised backup

    Mustn't have played that game against Arsenal where Jagielka went in goal then!

    I believe our academy team play up a level as well - so most are 17/18 years old rather than being 20/21 years old like a lot of the academy teams

    I always thought it was Tonge he used as the backup. Probably wrong

    Ethan Goulding is also on loan at Tring and seems to have joined at the same time as Bogdan Marian.

    Goulding is a midfielder born in Watford, and like Marian is a 17 year old 2nd year scholar.

    Both played in the first two games for Athletic and have started in todays fixture away at Dunstable.

    Ethan Goulding (L) & Bogdan Marian (R)

    Is their kit designed by Jackson Pollock?
    Hideous!

    Not the best is it!

    Saying that, their actual kit is red and black so I'm presuming that's the away effort.

    A debut tonight for Adrian Blake. Didn't see much of the ball but when he did he was confident, took people on and tried to make things happen, which is more than his experienced teammates did.

    I thought he looked really good. He can be proud of his cameo tonight.

    We'll be bringing through some excellent divers in the next few years.

    Does anyone know what has happened to Shaq Forde? Injured at the end of last season, trained with the first team in the summer then disappeared and hasn't been appearing for the U21s. I'm assuming he's got an injury again, that's unlike our players.

    Keep reading on the official site about a trialist who seems to be scoring quite a few. Unless we have more than one trialist and it's the different age groups (and I'm far far too lazy to go check that!)

    Anyone know who it is?

    Under 23s 4-0 down to Colchester - are we that bad or playing a load of kids ?

    We're sh!t unless a few seniors players are playing. It's pretty embarrassing, 6-0 at home to f*cking Colchester!
     
  34. Results don’t matter at that level. It’s all about the individual performances. I gather the lads played really well.

    A game that could've gone either way, the ref had a shocker.
