Well its part the wrong club at the wrong time, but also down to him. You can be as talented as you like, you still need to want it.
Like moreno, you have to take the opportunity or you'll end up on half a dozen loans and failing. I dont know how many opportunities or chances city are meant to give these youngsters before people get off their back.
Well a couple are getting reasonable expeience under Pep now. The rest, for most of the last two managers before Pep, were at the wrong club imo.
This kind of situation where a kid suddenly becomes an entity by getting football is a typical example of how it works imo. Rashford is another.
Somehow we have to bridge this gap, partially with Pep giving more kids game time & partially by finding a way of making sure our kids get loans at the right clubs who suit their style & will play them & that if they do well, we will give them a shot.
Otherwise Sancho, Bobby Duncan etc will become the normal outcome rather than it being unusual.
