Canadian to the core! Looking forward to declare that an EPL striker is Canadian!  

Training with the first team for pre season https://www.wolves.co.uk/news/first-team/20200904-gallery-players-return-for-pre-season-training/   

More praise for him - I like the Canadian flag next to his name!

Thought he played pretty well. Looked good and confident on the ball. Made dangerous runs and made some dangerous first time passes. Liked what I saw.

If I were to criticize one thing from the game it would be his defending. He seemed to just kinda give up running back at times. That can always be worked on though.

So is the "U23's" a bit of a misnomer? The guy who scored that first goal for Crystal Palace is a 29 year old former Belgian international.

Yeah it's normally for youth but it's just a reserve squad. As far as I know

It’s not a reserve squad. It is a 95% u23 league (tbh mostly made up of 18/19/20 year olds)

Each  team can have up to three (I think) overage players(not including the GK(who can be over age as well.

The clubs use it to bring first team players back from injury too to get match fit. Hence why players like that and Danny Drinkwater play...


Currently at the top end there are two divisions of PL2 run by the Premier league  Div 1 and 2 with promotion and relegation each season

Each club has to be Cat 1  EPPP academy 

the EFL run a separate league called the PDL with  category 2 clubs

Wolves currently play in the 2nd division of the PL2 

sorry for the long post just FYI...
