Congratulations to Rhino, his staff and all the players on winning the Premier League Two tonight. Great achievement for all involved. Quite a few inside Goodison to witness the youngsters get the three points required. Here's my take on the players, first 11 only.
Joao Virginia 6, Not much to do really but was solid throughout. Couple of wild kicks that went out of play and one flap in the 1st half.
Ryan Astley 6, put a few decent balls through, good going forward when he got the chance.
Brendan Galloway 6, nothing spectacular, did his job well.
Nathan Markelo 6, didn't show enough for me and first half passed him by. Improved after the break but needs to get involved more.
Morgan Feeney 8, very vocal, organised the defence well, strong in the tackle and good distribution. Needs to bulk up a bit if he's to make the 1st team but impressive performance from the skipper.
Lewis Gibson 7, would score higher if he didn't give away a soft penalty. Great understanding with Feeney, looks good on the ball and defends very well. His physique is more suited right now to the 1st team than his defensive partner.
Dennis Adeniran 7, made some good runs, looks comfortable with ball at his feet and can take players on. Needs to get his head up a bit more and make right choices at right time,
Fraser Hornby 7, very mobile for a big strapping lad, didn't win enough headers and never got enough chances to show his prowess in front of goal. Nice clearance off the line to keep the lead in the first half. Not at same level as DLC right now but could get there.
Bassala Sambou 7, strong and tough little player. Solid performance, likes to run at his man. Some nice touches throughout. His back heel flick was worth going to watch alone!
Nathan Broadhead 7, quiet first half but improved in second. Should have scored late on but his movement and control looked decent.
JOSH BOWLER 9, MOM for me with an outstanding display. Strong on the ball, holds his marker off well. Runs at the opposition defence with no fear and is quite tricky. Great move to cut inside and get his shot off for his well deserved goal. Could have scored more!
It was only one game so it's hard to judge all of the players on how they would fare in the first team squad. From what I seen, only Bowler looks ready to make the step up. Without trying to put pressure on the lad, when he has the ball at his feet he reminds me of Rooney a little bit. The way he glides along the pitch and the way he uses his strength to hold off his marker. Definitely one to watch.
Gibson and Feeney could do with going out on loan for a few months to see how they cope with league football. If Feeney beefs up a little he will be some player.
Dark Clouds mentioned in a post that Silva should be using these players in the first team squad as they were close to winning the league. After watching them tonight, I can see why he hasn't. Some just aren't ready for that step up despite being good players. We need to let them continue their footballing education before throwing them into the lion's den.

Thanks for the report. I watched it on my computer but for some reason it would not go to full-screen so difficult to see any detail. What did impress me is the celebration at the end of the game. The sheer delight and obvious team spirit and comradery came across and is a credit to Unsworth and the other coaches.

Morgan feeney is a future captain 100% he's brilliant and as you say his organisation is great for his age, I would like to see him, Gibson, Gordon, Bowler and Hornby with the first team for pre season at least then possibly go on loan to championship teams.

Brilliant result. A very good lad Unsy, if he was given the chance as the likes of our last three Managers have been given, who knows!

As much as I like Unsworth, I don't think he would be the right man to be manager just yet. He did well in his first stint as caretaker but not so good last season. It's probably inevitable that he will become a manager with a league team at some point, if he has ambition that is, but I'd rather he cut his teeth somewhere else first and take him in the future when he has gained more experience.
Some people are meant for certain roles in life, maybe Rhino has found his perfect job nurturing the kids? Time will tell I suppose, BC. What I will say is that the reserve league is not that competitive as it used to be many years ago. That's not to take anything away from the U23's whatsoever, what they achieved, again, is brilliant for the club and all involved. I just question how these lads are being prepared for the real blood and guts of league football by playing mostly against their own age group. I'd like to see more of those on the fringes of the first team battling it out, give the kids a proper education!

Unfortunately BCT Unsy wouldn't be a success. Like Silva people on here would be calling for his head after a few games, they aren't interested in giving a manager time to build something they want us top 6 immediately. Unsworth would be driven out.
