I think the answer to under 21 development is to play those players in your reserve league games where their stats will show their development. In terms of theu21 Comp, counting them would distort their stats vesrsus other under 21s given they are playing their games against other under 21s rather than in reserve league gamesmanship like other managers players would be doing.
So I think the answer is to get the under 21s into reserve league games and see their stats come through there...

If reserve matches are to be included what’s the difference of including friendly games as well (including under 21 comp games) as I am sure that some of the under 21 comp games are much more competitive than some of the reserve games especially in the lower divisions where it’s not uncommon to find yourself playing against an unmanaged team. Different story in the higher leagues granted but not everyone plays in the higher leagues.
Surely this will have a huge effect on the transfer market as you will no idea of some players abilities without an accurate set of stats?
Do we know for sure if reserve games will or will not count as that has a huge say in the debate ?
