Guys/ eds, with recent news coverage about managers stating they would like up to another two subs per game do you think they could look at this? I think we should allow it but these extra two places should be for home grown players under 21. This will allow younger home grown players time and experience which should aid our national team.

I'm torn with the idea tbh Baz, I like what your saying about giving the youth players more or a chance and more game time but do you think this could give the "big" teams with more money an advantage over opponents with less depth in their squad? Not for me I feel.

What about five substitute but the extra two if used needs to be u21? Means teams can't abuse it and youth gets to come through. just a thought.

I would prefer to just see an unlimited bench size so that managers don't have to choose between an experienced bench to help influence a game and young players to get them game time when the match is secure of just needs a burst of energy.

I think that players like Woodburn making the bench are great for the club but I was at the Boro game to see him warming up, we had a commanding lead being 3-0 up yet he didn't get a chance. This must really hinder their progress when we are comfortable. This was my thinking that an extra two subs, who are home grown players would give managers more incentive to give the youngsters a run out.

I think Woodburn is the real deal.

He is just naturally always in the right position and processes the ball rapidly.

I know this sounds premature and niave but the lad reminds me of kenny in his style of play.
I don't think he can not inluded and at least on the bench
He is quality.
And thank God a red.
