Name checking some kids and saying they’re good does not mean he’s planning to play them.Sadly we could've done with Sancho playing for us. I hope I don't have to say that about Foden. I also think Doyle will bring more to that DM position than Rodri. Palmer seems like a very intelligent player. Delap is apparently the 'real deal' and Braaf is supposed to be the next Sane.
The profit we've made from previous academy prospects was because they were not up to our standards. I think after the Bournemouth game Pep said he finally has academy prospects:
Pep Guardiola said: "When we arrived [in 2016], we had Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden - there were good players, But right now, we have a good generation. Taylor, Tommy Doyle, Cole, Felix Nmecha, Braaf, Delap - there are six, seven interesting players – James McAtee, too!"
Which means he is planning to play them.
Exactly. And Pep is blowing hot air carping on about wanting 5 subs per game yet he seldom uses 3. Baffling: /To an extent we have an unprecedented problem with the same number of games in less time and zero preparation / rest so then why not use the squad to its full? We haven't done that. KDB is in the worst form of his career and should have been taken out of the team before now.
