McInnes does not trust Wright in a properly competitive match. Chasing a game weve already lost against whomever..yep. Playing against a bottom six side early in the season.... yep. When the going gets tough....nope


Safety first.

What I had heard was a couple teams enquired about taking Wright on loan, Wright was keen to get out and get game time... but McInnes said no he needs him at pittodrie, wright was obviously annoyed as he wanted to play every week and threw a bit of a tantrum.. so McInnes gave him the same treatment as everyone else as to say "you'll do as your told"

I feel bad for Wright, definite potential there McInnes maybe just wants him to kick on and prove it to him in training/attitude etc. He looks like he's bulked up a wee bit too for this season

So, mcinnes wanted to make sure he respected him and knew he wouldn't get away with a hissy fit?

We did take the two Oirish youngsters in during the week. Squad fillerz.

But aye, Tansey will for sure be out along with Wright (not on loan), I think he's done.

Were they not on the young side?

 

I'd imagine Sam Roscoe etc would be a squad filler before them.

I see Tyler Chicken got some minutes for the U18's, the other night versus Keith...  Has he fully overcome his injury problems?

Aye very impressive result then... not heard of many of the lads, other than Chicken and Ross.  Anyone know much about the next generation?  Anyone to look out for?

The SPFL is pleased to confirm that it will operate Reserves Leagues for season 2018/19, comprising 27 clubs across two divisions.

The Reserve Leagues, which replace the Development Leagues, have been introduced following discussions at the Competitions Working Group over the last 18 months. 

The Competitions Working Group, which is attended by Malky Mackay (Scottish FA Performance Director), representatives from all four SPFL Divisions and was previously chaired by Ian Maxwell, was of the view that it would benefit the development of young players if they were playing alongside more experienced players on a more regular basis.  

As such, there are no age restrictions with regard to participation in the Reserve Leagues (other than a minimum age of 16).

These changes complement recent amendments to loan regulations which provide, generally, that any player loaned out by an SPFL club is eligible to return and play in non-first team football for the lending club. 

The first division of the Reserve League comprises 18 clubs, who will play each other once for a total of 17 matches across the season. Fixtures will usually be scheduled for Monday afternoons.

Reserve League 2 is made up of nine clubs, who will play each other once at home and once away for a total of 16 matches across the season. Fixtures will take place in midweek evenings.

Divisional Reserve League Cups will be played to provide additional games during the season, with the format mirroring the Betfred Cup in that any drawn group games will proceed to penalties with an additional bonus point available. Further details on the cup competitions will be confirmed in due course.

It is anticipated that Reserve League fixtures will be published later this week. The first division of the Reserve League is scheduled to start on Monday August 20, with Reserve League 2 kicking off the following midweek.

Typical Scottish football governance:

Only 27 teams want to play reserve football, so let's make it shite for the top pro teams just to appease a few hangers on.

Like you say (I think) make it a 10 or 12 team top league, let division 2 have the whacky number of fixtures etc

Why didn't they spilt the top league into two leagues so they could have home & away fixtures equally just like the reserve league 2.

Weird set up

Also.. no age restrictions other than a minimum age of 16

So the whole idea is to help bring on youth football yet YOUTHS below the age of 16 cannot play.

Clearly it is not about helping youth at all & it was reintroduced at the request of Celtic & Huns. Even though Huns aren't in it at this moment they will be at some point.

@Bebo. If a new reserves thread appears I suggest it be called 'Cockney Don's Reserve Thread'. 

 

He has done sterling work with the under 20's and should be recognised.

 

Cheers CD :applause:

Never argue with an I D I O T . They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Good opportunity to call time on this thread, now that the U20's have been disbanded.  Will add this to the 'classics forum' once it's dropped off the page.  Thanks to Cockney Don and others for the updates, those of us who follow the youth teams from afar are grateful! 

 

New Reserve Team thread HERE

 

Once there is something to talk about, feel free to start a new topic for the U18's and youths.
