The youngsters did well as they often do in pre season. What I do not understand is when we used to play them in the Europa or if we play them in the domestic cups against lower league opposition we come unstuck?
Not necessarily true, Skipp was excellent away at Preston for example and was good in the couple of league games he played.

The problem is in domestic cup games Poch chucks out mish mash teams of kids, reserves and the odd first teamer - it's usually a bunch of players that don't play together week in week out, in odd formats - usually away at a tricky/shitty ground/pitch against a team who treat the game like a cup final - and then some fans wonder why we look disjointed or incoherent. It's always going to make integration harder if you chuck kids into that kind of game, harder to shine when the team is of general lesser quality and less cohesive than normal.

The best way to introduce kids it's into a full strength, cohesive side where the quality and cohesion of the rest will help them integrate, make things easier.
