But I'm still waiting for Dembele to prove he is more than a sideways dribbler.

Dear Mr Townsend

As we are on this subject then may I also offer my sincerest apologies concerning my thoughts on your abilities as a premiership quality footballer. I am glad to admit I was totally wrong.

Please continue in your current fine vein of form, and if you are indeed a footballer that thrives on confidence, then I look forward to some even better performances in the coming months.

Yours expectantly

But you've forgotten to tell him what you'll call him should he miss an open goal.

No I don't generally do that, especially to players that actually put effort in which he actually does. Lazy bastards are a different matter :oops:

Maybe it's not people's failed judgment of an individual young player that should be the issue,
but rather their attitude to youth players overall?
I'm sure the previously negative guys changing their mind about Townsend and Rose these days,
also continue to comment poorly about the potential of guys like Kane, Pritchard, Carroll etc.
Have faith and patience with young players, if the manager play them support them 100% they aren't the finished product yet. It's possible to go from flop to star in a couple of games, often it's a matter of just having some luck and get the ball rolling.

Had big doubts about Kane but he's really improved his game over the last year or so and it won't be long until it's his breakthrough season IMO. I haven't seen anything of Pritchard but i'm definitely sure Tom Carroll will become a star for us. It's great to see the amount of talent we're developing though, with Caulker, Townsend, Carroll, Rose & Livermore all coming through in recent years. As I said I don't think Kane is far off either.

Who's writing off Lamela?
That's just impulsive and silly imho.
You'd be surprised. I have seen it multiple places online from our fans and others. It's fair for other fans, as they're just jealous, but when our fans write him off, it's very annoying.
