Thread: Academy 2019/20

  1. Default Academy 2019/20

    What a shambles at the moment, U18s failing so far this season and the U23s currently 8-2 down to Everton.

    Hope it's just a blip.

    Crikey, what happened there?!

    We were 2-0 up! Then 2-2 at half-time.

    What percentage of our academy players play above their natural age group and how does this compare to other academies?

    No idea of how we compare, but that was a young team out tonight. Barnes is 22, Slattery and O'Driscoll 20, and the rest 16-19, including a 16 year old debutant and 17 year old keeper. Was a strange line up too - 6 defenders and only 4 on the bench. It's a bit of a mess.

    Six defenders and we ship eight. Sounds like the Southampton Way is being nicely ingrained in the next generation.

    Amazingly not particularly shocked at that result. I went to the Hampshire Cup game at Basingstoke Town towards the end of last season. When you consider that all our lads are full time footballers, they were often outplayed by a bunch of part timers (being harsh) playing (and soon to depart) in a league 6 divisions below the one most of our lads were being prepared for. No one except maybe Will Ferry actually stood out for Saints.

    U23ís came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 away at Spurs.

    Hansen forced an own goal & then scored the equaliser.

    Decent result again the PL2 league leaders. Good reaction after the Everton drubbing.

    Nice last gasp win for the U18s just now away to Reading, Rus with the winner on 90mins from close range. Saints up to 9th. 17players in the squad, 2 names not seen before on the bench Lillenburg and Kaba.

    U23s now. Premier League Cup

    Saints U23's beat Man City 2-0 in the PL2 tonight.

    Initally, I thought this was an upset, but I just realised they are bottom. (We're 2nd from bottom)

    That's the double over them, we beat them 4-3 in the fist game of the season. Only one other win this season in the PL2 Div 1 (Wolves).

    They did, but to be fair the U18s aren't doing too badly this season, there is a group of 4 teams (including West Ham) who are so much better than anyone else in the Division, but Saints are currently at least best of the rest, hugely inconsistent it seems.

    That is a fair comment, 5th in the League.

    Saints U23s away to Derby Tues 10th and Mon 16th, I wonder if they'll stay up there for the week. Probably be cheaper to come back.
