Sancho's second was top class striking for such a young talent.

There was a piece in the E and S yesterday about the youngsters recently brought to the club from abroad.
Im not convinced they are good enough standard if im honest, maybe two of them perhaps have enough quality.

Where as Wolves signed a young lad from Aylesbury yesterday who could be a shrewed pickup, several Premier league clubs had been watching him.

Time will tell as they say.

Knocker, who have you heard good things of..?
Oskar Buur Rasmussen, Pedro Goncalves, Ming Yang-Yang, Carlos Heredia, Boubacar Hanne, Sherwin Seedorf and Jose Xavier have all joined since the start of 2017 with Wolves' youth recruitment strategy growing across Europe
I don't understand why we have so many imports.

Sherwin gets good reports, and Pedro seems your "type" of player.

I like Pedro, the others like Sherwin dont convince me as yet.

England play Japan at 3.30 in the last 16 of the U-17's World Cup, Jadon Sancho has been recalled by Dortmund so there is a place up for grabs in the starting 11, I'm hoping Gibbs-White gets a look in, he has looked really good in the cameo appearances I've seen so far

Cameo again, but FINALLY, we win a penalty shoot out.The Japanese levels of fitness were remarkable, as they are in the senior team, I wonder if it is trained or genetic?

Depends who you ask, I know what Gordon Strachans answer would be.

We played well for 60 minutes without creating a real clear cut chance and then we started to look really tired, I imagine the heat and humidity over there is quite bad, something the Japanese would be more used to.

Mmmmm, I wonder...? Bet they'd have a hard job playing in winter over here...or perhaps not, as the case may be. 8)

Yep, I remember snoods.
In the past, and maybe still, many players in the colder European countries played in tights.... well thermals.
Have to say if I had the courage I would have done the same, but snoods? Nooooo.

Im concerned for the future of Scott Sellars at our club because his interviews portray a different agenda to whats best for the first team.
With his focus on the wrong key factors which are required for progression of players into the first team.

He should be working on seamless transitions and definition by detail, and have the ability to mirror the first team.

The youth teams also play the 4-5-1 / 4-2-3-1 "Wolves DNA" formation that we went for a few seasons ago. Part of the reason Nuno doesn't like putting players into the U-23 team when they need match fitness.

Could we see them changing it to more match the first team in the future?

Gibbs-White's goal for England. Nicely taken finish, the ball came to him at an awkward angle. Good to see he started in such an important match. The USA U-17 team is very strong at that level.

That was a good result, especially after needing penalties to beat Japan in the previous round, I think we miss Sancho he is such a big player for us

Its something I expect Nuno and his first team staff address in the summer.

You want players fit for purpose when they are given opportunity with the first team.

You cant be taking endless hours speaking/working to/with individual players about the different requirements of YOUR system of play.

I doubt any of you wage slaves have watched the England U17 World Cup campaign the last few weeks. I have, and they have been outstanding including one of our own.
Amongst the many outstanding kids that you never see at any senior tournaments :roll: is a Man City kid called Phil Foden. This kid only has one leg to use a footballing metaphor, his left, but this kid is electric.
I am not a fan of one footed players per se, but this kid is utterly outstanding in a sea of excellence in the England team.

Now, how does he and hundreds of his like not make the full England team and express their obvious potential?

Answer? He plays for Man City and has several hundred millions of pounds of players in front of him in his journey. If they ay no good they spend another 100 million on someone who is.

What would you do if you were him, sign for Crystal Palace for first team football?

Watched the England vs Brazil game last night, they rode their luck and took their chances against a very talented Brazilian team.

I think in this squad England have three World class talents George McEachran, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Phil Foden.

To be honest in the final I would switch Foden to the ten role, he seems wasted on the right wing and leave the Wolves youngster on the bench.

Will any of them get a chance in the EPL?
Isn't our youth running up against a brick wall of foreign imports?
Doesn't there have to be a better balance between British and foreign players?

Perhaps Sky tv should develop an under 22 Championship where the winners walk away with over a hundred million.

At Wolves next season you would think a 21 year old Ruben Neves will turn out alongside a 19 year old Ruben Vinagre.
Whatever the division.

I would guess Jack Price and Ronan have developed playing with and against these serious talents during midweek training.

I always find these type of player the most difficult to judge.

Did he set his youth teams alight because of his physical advantage with that very powerful frame.
Or will he still retain an advantage as other players close that gap as their bodies mature.

Its good that Wolves didn't rush into a decision on the lad before rewarding his efforts with a contract.
Its a tough call good luck to him during his time at Wolves.
