Nice discussion. People also forget that Dinho can fill in in a pinch, too, and Garcia has played there, too! Stupid money being talked about for Maguire would be absolutely ridiculous and could only possibly be sanctioned if Pep demanded it from Khaldoon. Why buy these young international prodigies if we are always too scared to give them the minutes needed to see if they can step up?! It sounds crazy, know, but at some point everyone has to make the mistakes needed to grow and learn, and we simply have to accept them from the young kids as we do with the established greats. No one dismissed Vinny for his significant lapses and getting sent off, so let’s let Sandler have some time to learn his PL trade in the PL. without it, we will never know if they’re good enough. In some respects, I’d accept not winning silverware for a year if it meant we had blooded a handful of younger players and prepared the, to be First Team Squad players for the next decade. And, even if we pay stupid money for Maguire, there is nothing to suggest he won’t make mistakes that cost us games, either!
