URZZZZ TBF we could line up with a team just from the academy and it'd still look strong
I'm glad we seem to be focusing more on academy graduates again. With Stam making some ridiculous unneeded signings, I felt the emphasis towards the academy had gone down. Clement and to a further extent Gomes are improving this side of things again
Could even strengthen that and avoid playing players out of position by replacing Loader with Novacovic, Barrett with Loader and Richards (maybe ) with Barrett. You could name a bench of Ward, Holmes, Howe, Richards, East, Holsgrove and maybe Frost.
Not sure I’d rate our chances in the Championship but it’s certainly a side with potential !
