    This is not really a serious question but given the U18's have scored upwards of 25 goals this year and are currently on an 11 game winning run would Coventry fans be happy if they were given a chance at Wembley?

    Not just at Wembley. This season is shot. MR should start to look to next season and only play those who he wants to remain in 17/18. I would play those players and give kids in the U23 and U18 squads a chance. We really have nothing to lose.

    Yep, do it for all games.

    Let the "pros" see what it's like to for a player to have a bit of effort.

    Agree, and they would probably have more pride and passion

    I expect we'll see more of them as the season draws to a close. Robins is going to be working out which players he can trust for next season. After that he will be looking at who from the youth sides can make the step up.

    They've been in brilliant form, yet lost to a pub under 18's Dunkirk fc in the Fa youth cup. Odd one that. Keeping Cat 2 status is vital.

    Not sure about Wemberleeee, but introducing the Ponticelli's, etc. to the matchday squad until the end of the season would be good for their delevopment, imo.

    I'd be happy for them to play at Wembley. I'd at least feel like cheering and clapping them there, win or lose, as opposed to the current first team.

    Exactly this, and as the old saying goes: "the enemy with nothing left to lose, is the most dangerous adversary".

    If MR plays Burge, Turnbull, Bigi and fucking Tudgay in the final, he's on a bet, clearly. Cos our kids would go out there fearlessly.

    The striker should have been on the bench since January anyway.
