And I would, like you, see it happen.
I remember in his early days Cooper was talking a lot about his ambitions around this, and, to be fair, some players did move into the first team training group from the U23s, but they are not being picked yet.
Good half. Borja showing what we missed with Sewerage up top.

why he is persisting on working on Byers to be one of them, because he recognises he has many of the attributes to be one of the midfielders in that fits that system. he knows Grimes is.
he wanted Brewster last summer, rather than Surridge. but they couldnt get him them, so Surridge was obviously one of the back up plans that fitted the economic plan.
I think we may see things change slightly - hopefully the better - now Brewster is on board.
But your depiction of bad things are, doesnt stand up to scrutiny. the figures of performance. the passing and possession stats are slightly down on Potter's figures, yes. but only by a few % points, not some huge gulf you claim it is.
I don't think I'm missing the point Mark, you said he is trying to get us to play like Liverpool, but doesn't have the players, and it isn't working, did you not?
Time will tell I guess. I don't know, perhaps him and Scott have sat down and agreed the sort of profile of player he needs, and Scott is happy to recalibrate the approach that worked so well to deliver the players that Brentford are now having so much success with. We'll see. But I'm slightly concerned at the moment - it doesn't seem manager and club are on the same page.
There is plenty to be positive about. Credit too Jenkins if newspaper reports of the way he handled things are true. Not a fan of his, but this is one area he used to be good at and might have returned to. Now as long as he keeps well away from players apart from shaking their hands when the deals are done, we will all be happy!
Sadly do you really believe we can win either or both? The performances in the last 6 games have been poor, never mind how good some of the opposition have been, we just haven' looked like we were up for it. The players look beaten!
