I’ve read a few comments on here saying that Hercules is likely to be released at the end of the season but it didn’t sound like that from what Allan Steele said. Sounds like they think there’s more to come from him.

Also interesting to hear that Nathan Shepperd trains with the first team.

I'm liking look of Huckenhall at the back. Good feet and good defender. Some of these triallists though not great

That's interesting, missed the bit about Hercules. Slightly surprised if I'm honest. He's very raw still as he's shown again today but if they see something there still then great..

Allan Steele said Hercules is probably the quickest player they’ve ever had in the squad and he’s been responsible for quite a lot of goals with his pressing ability.

0-0 final score, sounded like they had a lot of first teamers out so good test. We didn't look like letting anything in but equally didn't really create too much. Pressley struggled a bit up front without Brook and Mogensen alongside and generally the number of trialists meant there wasn't really that much fluid football. Racic obviously stood out but Hockenhull looked very assured too. The trialists all had moments of good play and generally looked ok but no-one particularly stood out. Shame there was still no Maghoma or Haygarth

Mr C, I know that you follow the 'B's very closely so I just wondered are you able to say that these Trialists are new ones every game or have some of them been with us for long periods? All season? Clearly, having so many Trialists is something to do with the pandemic so are we taking the opportunity to look at close quarters at as many young men as possible or are we saving money on player salaries? I just wondered what your view is of both the situation, and the 'B' team season in general.

How did we not beat Eastleigh?!? They were all playing with their eyes shut. #FrankOut

Still nothing on the OS about the Spurs game. Weird.

The interview guy says something about an "unnamed PL team" requesting the game not be publicised. Good one! The one thing to take out of the interview is that the B team season is over.

An interesting question would have been, how will the set up change if we do get promoted to the PL???

Nah, that's not in the "script"! Surprised he didn't ask Farls about upcoming matches and kicking on for the rest of the season.
