I would say why not regarding Gomes and Chong. Sometimes I don’t really get when people say oh they are too young. Yes they are still learning and raw but giving them a shot every now and again could be a master stroke. You do wonder whether we would have even seen Rashford at all if LVG hadn’t given him a shot because of the injury crisis at the time? This is the perfect opportunity to blood one or two.
I think the club need to progress they might need cup runs given the way the league is going so he can't take to many chances but would be nice to see one of them on the bench so if the game is wrapped up with 10 to go they could get some playing time.
I must admit I am a bit disappointed. I would have liked to put out a strong team but with maybe one of the youngsters playing and a couple on the bench. I know things are a bit different these days so we have to take this competition more seriously but this is the competition the kids think they have a chance in.
Defo. All 15 pens and the body language looked good, I didn’t doubt any of them until that clown Jones stepped up. He looked like a kid in the playground who nobody picks, unconfident, terrible body language and an utter crap penalty followed. No surprise.
