Nice to see people finally getting on the Kenny wagon as well as other youngsters ....koeman needs a fucking wake up ...we ooze youth talent just need a couple seasoned pro's younger than  fucking  Rooney(sub at best now) to get the best team we've had in decades .

been wanting these 3 to start now for a while, always got shat on by nsno posters who assume they know better, but havent even seen these lads play for the under 23s  and rate Koemans signings as better wanting to give them time to gel..
Unfortunately for some it seems no matter how good they are for the under 23's a lot on here would prefer throwing money left and right for no better than we alredy have ...  most can spot a good player even if the kid is on the park on a Saturday ....others just play fifa way too much .

I mean that's what the academy is for ...future.

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?
The beauty is we tend to give our own more time ....just look at Barkley consistent run of games in four or so years and some still think he's the messiah.
