I'm optimistic about our youngsters getting playing time. We know that Yesil can score at the reserve level. He scored something like 80 in a 100 for Leverkusen's reserves and just picked up 3 in 2 games with Germany's U19s and an assist. Its time for him to be given a shot in the first team and that's likely to happen now that we're short of strikers.This is a match that Andy Carroll should have been starting in and young Yesil being 'fast-tracked' (very unfair on the lad) only illustrates what a huge error it was to let him go.
Yeah I'm still pissed off with that one.
I hope Suso get's a game to give him some encouragement after his U-19 heroics. It would be nice for him to finally 'arrive' in the first team.
I think our lack of senior strikers could end up being a blessing in disguise as our young strikers and wingers (Yesil, Ngoo, Morgan, Suso and Pacheco) will get the chance to use their youthful enthusiasm in senior games.
