Hope you don't mind me returning to a topic from yesterday, and a question I hoped Spanish and other U23 veterans in particular might respond to. If BPF was with either sold or sent out on loan and if either Huffer or Miazek were to be promoted to no2, which would you prefer and why?

Agree0 Disagree0

Clueless, not sure I like the word “veteran”! 😉

I’ve seen more of Huffer and. I like him, seems very calm and collected and with a lot of presence for his age. Also seems to shout and command his area, whoever is in front of him. But both are promising.

The difficulty for the young goalkeepers is that they need to play to get real experience and the number 2 is hopefully going to be bench sitting for a lot of the first team season. However it’s also useful to be training and warming up with the first team goalkeeper and coach.

Could a number 2 goalie travel and train with the first team and then train and play with the under 23s or Huffer goes to number 2 and Miazek and Male act as the under 23 keepers.

Miazek Is my choice, great with penalty’s too which would come in handy with Oliver and coops in our team.

Good that we have these good young goalkeepers, if Carlos and Bielsa are equally convinced, it will make it easier to call BPF´s bluff!

Thanks for your replies. As I said in my post in the earlier discussion of this topic, I saw a number of U23 games last season but never actually saw Huffer - just Miazek and Male. I'd thought Miazek was MoM in the National final - despite our superior possession he actually kept us in the game with some fine saves - followed by his heroic in the penalty shootout. I guess Huffer has a natural advantage in terms of command of his back line due to ease of communication, while Miazek improves his English language skills. That might also currently give Huffer greater confidence in command of the area.

In light of this, would it be best for either BPF or Huffer to go out on loan (with the other as no2 to Kiko or whoever replaces him) and also keep Miazek in-house as the primary keeper in the U23s to build his communication skills and continue learning the Bielsaball ways?

On Harrison Male, as I also said previously, I was surprised how small he looked. While he is certainly spring-heeled and perfomed very well, do the longer established U23 watchers (apologies for the use of Veterans earlier) feel that his height might unfortunately possibly hinder his chances of progress at the top level of the game?

I had my resignations about Male due to his stature. i think ultimately that will be a huge barrier to overcome although De Gea is only 6'2" and he does ok.
