The reason players such as Fernando and Navas are getting game time over youth is BECAUSE they are senior players who are contracted on big wages. Better to tell an EDS player to wait for his chance than leave a squad player who can do a perfectly decent job out in the cold and unhappy. Look at the huge number of players we have who are out of contract this summer. The EDS boys know this and will have been told this. If they are good enough for a squad place then they'll get a squad place. If they show beyond that they deserve a starting place, they'll get a starting place. Look at the squad sizes Pep generally works with and compare it to the size of our squad? We're massively overinflated and players such as Navas, Clichy, Sagna, Zabaleta and even Toure will be moved on, not all this summer but certainly next summer.
