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?
If we had kept Garbutt around at the club instead of shipping him off on loan, he would have been different to how he is now, He lost impotous, Evertonians who play for us, need to be in and around the club, going out on loan just destroys some of them..
the best way for time and experience is playing the players, instead of shelling out 100m-200m on players that are not utalized to their optimum for various reasons.
Also a lot of posters stated that Kenny wasnt good enough, also said DCL wasnt good enough, with out even watching them play.. the audacity of some is just splash the cash, Koeman knows best.
Growing up, Everton always gave Evertonians a chance to prove themselves.. Evertonians are the best Everton players.. (players coming through the youth system)
