Jose identified Davies as being important to his system of playing with the defensive fullback (3rd CB on attack) plus Davies is shit going forward.
he is not that shit going forward. at the start of 17/18 season he created most of the chances in the team but he couldn't retain that form again after injury

Agreed, Rose was always deemed the better of the two going forward, however in recent seasons in terms of end product Davies consistently produced higher numbers I think? Crosses/passes completed and assists?

Always thought Davies could also probably make it as a very capable DM. Very good defensive instincts and a proficient passer of the ball.

Interesting to see Tom Carroll released by Swansea, currently without a club
Always thought Carroll was a decent player but thought he was overhyped due to circumstance. We lost Modric and everyone knew we could do with another metronomic passer of the ball in midfield. Enter Carroll with that skillset and people started overlooking his obvious flaws and overhyping the passing itself which lead people to think he was better/more influential than he actually was.

How are the CB’s rated by our regular youth watchers. Is Binks on Tanganga level, and if he leaves, with Walcott, Lyons-Foster and Muir are we pretty well covered anyhow.
What type of CBs are they all, pacey, powerful, cultured, or mixture?

HT 1-1

Some good individual performances first half, Hinds and White have been good in midfield, Markanday looking sharp tonight and BLF is having a good game so far.

Apparently Brighton have a 35 yo playing for them? Crofts, I believe.
Some clubs use their overage allocation for U23s matches. We seem to think playing anyone over 20 is a breach of rules.

Lost 2-1

Brighton went up a few gears at the beginning of the second half and they scored from a corner and they was the better team on the night.

Some of them individual performances faded in the second half Hinds and White lost the battle in midfield and Markanday also faded, BLF and Cirkin finished the game strong and it is good to see BLF play a lot better of late.

Our best player on the night Josh Oluwayemi without him we would have lost this game by more, he pulled off two top class saves but he was also very good all game.

Apparently Troy Parrott has agreed a new contract until 2023 which will be signed and announced on his Birthday (tomorrow I believe).
