All the talk of the youngsters coming through is great and I see the point of getting them playing time last few games. But seriously though if we get two of them good enough for first team we'll be doing well.

I know what your saying Corky, it's a gamble but along with Pearce, O'Connor, BPF I can see at least Shaugnessy and Edmundson playing regularily so it's not such a great stretch of the imagination to see at least two other new young guns featuring most weeks.

Cork Disagree. 2 is below average. 3 average. 4 good. 5 excellent. We already have 5 in the first team already. BPF, Paudie, RV, Pearce and Edmondson. We need more but we already doing well on that front. Radz strategy is about youth coming through. There's still Hosannah, Rey, Shackleton, Clarke, Machuca, Sarkic, Dalby, Kun T and Wilks to come through. We could have a team and squad in about 15 months.

3 have already shown they're upto the task. I would expect another 3 from George's list to come good in the next 12 months too. That's a pretty good return imo.

So are we saying Orta's doing a good job? Only asking.

Leo As purely a scout unearthing young talent from abroad, yes. I've said this for a couple months now. However, he should not be allowed anywhere near first team recruitment directly. Examples are Wiedwald and Grot. This means his job title requires immediate demotion. Director of football? Having a laugh.

Who should be in charge of first team recruitment then George

George I mean good enough for a promotion team. How many of the young lads will play more than 50 league games? O’Leary had a great class of youngsters but getting 5 through at once is not easy.

Cork You have to play them to find out. We should no longer be pre-occupied with promotion. Our next task is to have a competitive first team and squad. Rest should follow. If worse thing that happens is we get up to 8th position next May but with extra youngsters coming through so be it. I'm hearing Jack Clarke is going to be a player.

Aus Sadly, Heck. He's the manager. All he really has to do is acquire solid Championship players who combine talent with the necessary physicality. None of this watery airy fairy rubbish like Wiedwald and Grot.

We could do a lot worse than raid the Wendies for a couple players. They are in trouble financially and with FFP rules.

Martyn Forestieri Hutchinson Westwood and Winnall once he returns from Derby. Forestieri would be a luxury not really needed because of Saiz and Hernandez but the rest would do nicely.

They bought a half decent central defender from somewhere Martyn! ? I forget where! ? 😏😱😢

They did Bright but he was treated fairly poor at Leeds. And mainly by tt the supporters.

Yes I would jump at the chance of signing Bartley, or Huth, or similar but let's not write off the the two who have filled in this year. I have to say that whenever called upon Shaugnessy, then O'Connor, have answered the call admirably. If they are mentored by some of the more senior players then the answer to our problems may already be on the payroll. This is without even looking at Struijk, Halme and Diaz. Again, wouldn't complain about the inclusion of an old head, man mountain, CB but I don't think we are in such a deep hole as some would think.
