He was better than Bates, but the defence still looked all over the place. 

Hopefully he can develop into our main CB in a couple of years. 

To be expected when they have fuck all midfield in front of them.

We should just play the under 20's team with Wes & Kenny and tell the rest to fuck off!

Beerman, Wilson and Barjonas looked the best players on the park tonight.

I did say he was a much better long term prospect than Bates, but in football terms he is three years younger. Ross McCrorie would have been ahead of both of them if he wasn't out on loan.

The three 18 year old's did really well and in football terms are 1999's therefore Under 18 in football terms.

Good to see them progress the same centre back pairing lost four goals in a Development League game against Dundee United in October, so they have make good progress this season.

Heard we'd tried to get Mccrorie back this week to play tonight but it was k ocked back by authorities.

MOTM for me was the guy in the Copeland who tried to shorten our misery by running away with the ball.

Agreed to a point, but they still look lost when anybody gets round the back our runs right at them. 

But they are young lads so as I said hopefully with a couple more years of development he can be our mainstay CB for the next 10 years.

I thought both of them looked alright, though Wilson was far more comfortable on the ball. They had some hairy moments, but Toral offered no support, and there were points where they went for the keeper's ball as Foderingham wasn't shouting for it. I think they're an improvement on Wilson & Kiernan. 

Main problem is that Miller kept having to come back to try to organise them, giving us less options further up the pitch. That's where someone like Bruno Alves is needed. Even Hill wasn't organising the defence that well; we need a communicator in there - and one who won't stand for shitebags trying to pin the blame on their own fuck ups on the defence. 

 

Both Bates and Wilson did well, both read the game and stand up to forwards rather than lunging in, Wilson looks the more composed of the pair as Bates seems to lack confidence.  Be happy to play either alongside an experienced CB but no matter who is there they need a midfield to protect them -- was a problem last season, a disaster this season and is still our major issue.

In all honesty, I thought all the u-20 kids done well tonight. Showed up the first team "pros". (apart from Bates's inability to pass a ball more than 10 yards.)

Barjonas was good, he could become a great with the right mentoring. Aidan Wilson can be proud of his performance. The future is bright.........

Thought the young lads all did well tonight, put their colleagues to shame by actually taking some responsibility and trying to take us forward. How Wilson hasn't been playing ahead of Bates is a mystery to me, you can feel everyone in the stadium gettting nervous when Bates is anywhere near the ball

Yeah, Bates looks much more comfortable with defensive positioning - in general - and clearing his lines than he does playing the ball. I think he'll only improve so much in that regard; think he'll always be more of an old fashioned centre back.

He's the only 6'4" defender I've ever seen that can jump to a height of 6'2" ffs.

A bit surreal that he can't get to balls in the air, yet Joe Garner seems to have springs in his boots.

its ?Beerman for me. I see a player beyond his old firm nightmare. In fact I see a superstar in the makings. I don't see it in Bates and the jury is still to in Wilson in my opinion.

The kids solid. Also beerman  could b a star in the making, bates seems to live by the if in doubt rule not too keen on him but there's plenty of time for him to develop.

one of the things that has struck me about the young guys that have come in is that physically, they look capable. They dont look like wee boys trying to compete with men.
