Not a good game to watch tonight , my opinion on our u23 tonight
Austin not a great deal to do , dropped the ball once when no one near him , could have been embarrassing had the ref not given him a free kick , other then that thought he did ok . Hinds ok considering played on the left probably our most liveliest player . Eyoma did ok but not enough considering he is an older one and was captain , seems to be a bit heavy . Lyons foster looked good in spells . Okedina big and strong but not much more . Markandy all the twist and turns but too light weight at the moment . Shaushoa best technically on the pitch but again small , and out muscled a lot of the time today . Tracy nothing’s changed from last few years , pacy strong but no end product how much longer will we give him to develop . Thorpe I actually thought he was ok but I think lack of playing time has done him no favours , but maybe with more game time could do well .richards fast shows glimpses but not enough for this level . I forgot TOB , well that sums him up really , Just don’t know what has gone wrong there , a few touches here and there doesn’t influence or really contribute to the game . As I said just my opinion

True story a friend of mine has played against him and said he’s physically a beat but technically a worse than non league player.

On top of that he also said the players on his own team were laughing and joking about it
Sounds like he could deputise for Sissoko while he's injured.

yes very. A coach I speak with on twitter who’s worked with him says his the best talent he’s worked with.
He is starting to get game time for the u18s, he is a big Lad with a lot of ability.

Having watched Roles play just before Christmas he is playing very well and looking like a player that will and can play a higher league next year and if we are not going to give him game time then I would like to see him at a club like QPR.

When he came on in the second half against Leyton Orient he was demarding the ball right from the off, he was running the game with some very good short and long range passing and his movement off the ball was very impressive and add that he can shoot from anywhere makes him a very dangerous player.

Bottom line if Cambridge United had started the game with Roles there was a good chance they might have won this match.

Going to tonight’s U18’s FA Youth Cup game against Wigan., don’t live too far away.

Anyone in particular I should be looking out for?

parrott is the obvious one, if he plays, but i'm sure you know all about him already.

otherwise ... dennis cirkin(lb), luis binks(cb), harvey white(dm/cm) and jneil bennett(lw) are the main ones to look out for. there are other good players too but those four in particular should be the ones to stand out.

Thanks, looking forward to seeing Parrott, will keep an eye out for the others (y)
