    Reserve League is a good move I think. Will be a good test for youngsters to play against some seasoned players. Probably a better indication if theyíre ready for first team fitbaw

    Donít get it.

    Clubs canít afford to have a reserve team with senior players, thereíll be a couple that are coming back from injury or need game time but they could play last season anyway.

    How many times did we want to play a senior player but couldnít as we already had our maximum number of overage players? Iíd guess at none.

    The Development team were predominantly all Dev/youth players with an occasional senior in the team, the reserve league will have no limitations re senior players, this might help the younger ones as they'll probably play against more senior players this year.

    Pretty straight forward. Development team was all the young lads near enough. This is for both. Was speaking to a player other day about it he thinks itís the best move for the game in Scotland as youngsters wonít have that big a jump when thrown into the first team.

    I also think itís a great idea to get it back. It will help older guys get match fitness after injury or just game time when they havenít been playing.

    I could be wrong but thatís what happened anyway is it not? Definitely with our side, it was predominantly youth, yes, but with first teamers coming back getting up to fitness.

    Our squad isnít suddenly going to get much bigger, and Iíd imagine thatís the case for all teams out with rangers and Celtic, so not sure itíll really make much difference.

    Makes you wonder why they scrapped the reserve league in the first place.

    No the reserve league will be a lot more of a competitive league to play in for the younger lads. Have a read into it youíll see itís not the same. If it was then I donít think theyíd need to change it.

    Sort of depends on what squads end up being used for this...if itís the u20s plus a few senior pros - it will be simply a rebadged version of recent seasons. Will be Interesting to see how it pans out.

    A reserve league will mean we don't have to try and fast track young players into the 1st team when they're not ready, it will also put a stop to the development loans where players are training with us through the week and linking up with their loan clubs for 1 nights training and a game on saturday. Plus it'll stop young players having to play 2 games per week, once for the development team and once for their loan club. There will be a youth league which will allow the younger players who aren't quite ready to play in the reserve league/old Dev league, some of the young 16 yr olds are up against 18-20 yr olds.

    It may mean we have a bench full of mostly senior players giving us extra strength in depth in games.

    Not sure it will ...be good if it turns out that way ...

    I think There will still be a difference in playing first team games in the lower leagues, where boys depend on win bonuses for their living.than playing in the reserve games .. more competitive and developmental in the first team games

    Also, likely that most clubs wonít be able to afford squads which are any different from last season - so I suspect it might end up being similar types of matches that was previously badged U20s.. hope Iím wrong though

    Hearts will have all the over 25s in this league. The better Players (u17s) will play for the first team.

    The way I see it is yes the re branding and structure may make it a more competitive league, but how many teams in the league have big enough squads that more than a couple of senior players will be available to play in the reserve league. Which is how it was last season, can only have a couple of players coming back from injury at one time which was facilitated in the old league.

    Will be interesting to see how it is over the season

    Why was the original reserve league scrapped back in 2009?

    I think Scottish football had a problem introducing youngsters in to their first teams and the reserve leagues and squads were full of cheaper foreign imports, we now don't have that issue with clubs having to rely on youth so things like reserve league are possibly a step forward.

    Short-sighted idiocy that has caused a drop in the numbers of young talent coming through ready for first team games.

    So now the only way to "blood" players like Shaw, Martin and Murray etc is to either loan them to clubs at a lower level or throw them in at the deep end.

    But in answer to your question: I don't know 😂

    Well, if SJM does go to Sellik, this is where he will likely play most of his games!!

    From a Hibs perspective at this time, a move from Development league to Teaerve league works in well. We have a group of youngish players, who may have been too old to play in next years Development league. So they get another year to see if they can make the step up. Think boys have been getting discarded too young. Hope this helps them

    Hibs only occasionally played over age players in the league last season, canít see this changing much this season either. The bulk of last seasons Development team will be our reserve team this season

    Not sure what other clubs will do though

    Some of our more senior pros in Scotland get a free ride. Sit on the bench as unused sub on Saturday then off to golf course on Monday now it will be off to play footie on Mobday and sharpen up their match fitness whilst th youngsters run them ragged.

    Would have gone to several of them if they were evening kick offs instead of Mondays at 2pm.
