Funes Mori played 74 minutes alongside Mason Holgate as his comeback from a serious knee injury continues.

I heard it was live on Facebook so if anyone saw it would they mind giving us a summing up especially re Holgate and Funes Mori.

Not that it makes much difference, but are our "home grown" players all out on loan? It's a funny old world.

Good point. Ive gone through that team and I think only Evans, Denny and Grant truly progressed through the academy from young. The rest were signed from other clubs.

Football was better with one sub, and players that played reserve team football. It stopped bloated squads, and encouraged players to play through the system. Currently the top clubs are just squandering talent.

In no other profession would you train all week and then not be able to do your job at the end of it .

To part answer the question about home grown players, we replaced Holgate and Funes Mori with the just turned 19-year-old Feeney and the 17-year-old Michael Collins both Academy products and both looking great prospects for their age.
