to FGR. So Coly isn't the most skillful of players but he is a big bugger who gets stuck in and Beesley does nothing! HE had a great game tonight so give him a chance.

I think the word great is often overused nowadays. That said he looks like he has a good engine and might just be useful to throw on to attack set pieces

Coly is dire, the only reason he stood out is because, in the words of a fellow fan: "he's just extremely long legs and a head.'

I wouldn't say so...He got stuck in to a good few challenges and wins everything in the air. Okay not great but Beesley has never done anything for us so why not?

Didn't go last night, but saw him at the Alsager(?) match, I know it's not the greatest yardstick of BSP quality, but he did win a lot in the air that night

Same here - my impression was of a slightly limited player who just could be useful as an impact sub. Whatever - he just HAS to be better than Beesley.

I was maybe a little harsh on him after Alsager...he showed some good touches last night and was certainly a large presence.

He looked like the kind of player I wouldn't want the opposoition to bring on with 15 mins left

I thought Coly played really well on Tuesday night. I've not seen him before but he handled the occasion well, and didn't look out of his depth. Alongside more experienced players he could really prosper. And he kept going right until the end, so he showed good attitude.

Obviously I wasn't at the game on Tuesday so can't comment from any PERSONAL experience

However I believe that the Youth Teamers were very good - George and his coaches should be complimented on their performance...It's a very long time since we've given a Youth Teamer a chance to prove that they can actually play. Pity there's no way we can keep some of the better ones and develop them

The youth teamers did a fantastic job, I was particularly impressed with Smart and Fearon. I see no reason why they perhaps couldn't play in pre season for us. Maybe if they did okay then one could be taken on as a back up player, as we have to decrease the budget this would also be a good way of getting an extra squad player at low cost.

Totally agree with this, well done to George and all associated with the youth team!

A solution for the better youths is to keep them on Alty's books but loan them out to BSN or Unibond Prem clubs or use Trafford (for instance) as a satellite club so we can see how they get on with (hopefully) some good regular competitive action
