Sporting a kid with ability is easy. What is not easy is finding out if their ability matches their temprament of that their ability is going to keep developing along with the rest of the attributes needed to succeed as a top professional in any sport. The way to do that is to introduce them gradually into a first team environment. It's not ideal throwing them in in a situation that is negative and say either sink or swim.

It's great to see the likes of Davies, DCL, Holgate and Kenny getting a chance but I hope those who are enthusiastically banging the drum for them aren't going to be having a go when things don't go so well. These kids need time and experience. Look at Garbutt for example. There were loads of people wanking themselves silly because of one good game. Where is he now?
