There's only so much young players can improve without playing.This is why, despite uncertainty about how good they can actually be, I'd have had Holgate, Davies, and Calvert-Lewin playing as many minutes as possible in the second half of this season. Those three rarely look out of place when called into action against senior pros. I think you need to invest minutes in young players like that, especially when you're not competing for anything. That's a big part of how you find the Kanes, Allis, and Rashfords of the world.
I agree. Nothing to be gained by wasting minutes on finished players.Do not agree with @Confucius - heís scored this year so thatís not literally true is it. Itís definitely a gap in his game but itís nothing to write him off over just yet.
4 goals and 6 assists in 31 league matches (18 starts) when he's only just turned 21 is alright.Especially considering this has been an ultra negative campaign in terms of performances, style and results.Kane only made 10 league appearances by the time he was 21 and scored 3 goals with 0 assists.Does that mean DCL will be better than Kane? Obviously not. It does show he's actually progressing quite well though.Edit: He's also got incredible abs.
DCL should be early cup rounds starter and last twenty mins only till he improves .
While I am a bit of a stat head myself, in this case, I think the stats are actually misleading -- making it seem as though DCL has performed better than he actually has. I am not as confident as others that he will be progressing.
Lies, damned lies and statistics.He's had a solid season in what has been an absolute mess of a season in years. Personally think he'll become a really good player under an ambitious manager.
