Up the dev squad! https://www.wwfc.com/news/2022/august/30/ben-and-antoine-rewarded-with-deals/
haha we are more bothered aboutt development side than 1st team
I loved the glowing terms the guy from Pro-Academy talked about the set up at Wycombe, the club really has created a positive vibe about the development squad set-up
Welcome to the club Ben & Antoine!
Great stuff, welcome!
We wouldn't have Mehmeti or Forino without the development squad!
Much easier to find information about Ben Kaninda than it is for Antoine Makoli.
Kaninda seems likely to be on a faster track than Makoli. He’s already clearly a big unit, a month or so short of his 19th birthday, and (to his delight) featured on the bench for Shrewsbury last season. He’s (not surprisingly) a central defender.
Makoli is a right back, a position where we are well served at present.
Could Kaninda be on the bench this evening, I wonder.
He did better than that. Centre back alongside Wakely (who has spent more time up front wide and cutting into the box than defending).
Kaninda ok but clearly very green. Big guy.
I get very excited about development signings, each and every one of them could be the next Anis or Forino
the Development model and the way the club is heading is something I’m really proud of
I really enjoy watching the development players, Gaz and Dobbo clearly see potential. Pattenden seemed good against Bristol City.
Looking around Twitter tonight for all the excitement of our development squad I still miss an early round of the FA Youth Cup.
Welcome aboard, it’s exciting times for me .
Ben Kaninda kept a clean sheet according to the clubs twitter. Didn't know he was a keeper...
Is Makoli the first Antoine to play for Wycombe?
Antoine Vircavs ??
You are probably correct Mr Senda.
I think I preferred your Wanderers82 stuff.
The difficult second Gasroom nickname
I had always thought he was Anton Vircavs. Wonderful centre back either way. 😊
It was Anton @Cyclops
No-one ever really knew how to pronounce his surname, so they usually left it as just Anton, or Vickers.
Believe it was actually pronounced Vix-ouse.
As a kid i used to laugh out loud at John Goldsworthy announcing Anton Vic's House each week, wondering how could he have got it so terribly wrong...
