Lesson in defeat for Blackburn Rovers under 21s

Lancashire Telegraph: Eric Kinder Eric Kinder

BLACKBURN Under 21s coach Eric Kinder insists his young side will have to learn from their 5-0 loss to a talented Norwich City team.

With a host of players out on loan at Football League and Skrill Premier clubs Rovers were forced to field a side mainly made up of Academy hopefuls for Monday’s U21s Premier League showdown.

Their line-up was boosted, however, by the inclusion of first-team quartet David Dunn, Josh Morris, David Goodwillie and Jake Kean.

But after the influential Dunn was withdrawn in the 70th minute Norwich – featuring nine players from last season’s FA Youth Cup-winning team – ran riot, scoring three goals to seal a comfortable if flattering victory.

Kinder was quick put the defeat into context.

But, with trips to West Ham United, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Chelsea to come, he accepts there will be more tough lessons ahead.

Kinder said: “I think it was a little bit harsh on us.

“If you look at the make-up of the side, we had four senior lads coming in and the rest of them were Academy lads. I think we had five 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old playing so it was always going to be tough.

“They are a decent side, they won the FA Youth Cup last year and they’ve got some good players and right up to half-time I thought we did really well.

“They’ll have to learn from it."

Seems like we are doing a lot of learning at the moment but no winning.

Maybe the lesson is that some of the players just are not good enough.

Central midfield is where games are won and lost. None of the current representatives are up to the mark in that respect right now.

It is indicative of this robbing Peter to pay Paul, they thought they were being clever bringing on youth players before they were ready to make up for hounding out extremely good seasoned players, this is their chickens coming home to roost, gaping hole in development due to half arsed ideas from the set up that is nasty to the core and laughs in the face of the true supporter.

They will learn from it all right.
They will learn that the big names cant be arsed at that level, the kids aren't good enough and the coaches are little better than PE teachers.
