I do agree with you. And I have added Saka to my original post.Cool, yeah, for overall dressing room spirit and drive I think we need to look a bit more to a sense of identity and belonging with the club / “project” as we have had with ESR & Saka. That’s why I think we should try to commit to Balogun and Martinelli, a bit like how United settled down a bit despite LVG and Mourinho chasing big name signings. We can’t go all youth, but right now I still feel our cohort of “older” players is in need of more thinning out. Tks for links.
As for ESR, Balogun, Martinelli, together with other young players such as Smith, Cottrell, John Jules, Cirjan, Azeez......they all have great potential.
But are they good enough walking into a big 6 starting eleven yet? I doubt it, they may become great players, but not yet at the moment.
Instead of letting them sitting on the bench, playing in the rare cup matches. We should loan them out, to gain experience, and also increase their value.
