Poch likely knows way more about football than any of us and I'm sure he must have noticed some flaws and weaknesses in his game that most of us would have missed and that's why he chose not to keep playing him after that debut.When he got MOM against Newcastle two years ago, that was the time to give him minutes and at least trust him a bit more or loan him out for a season to a lower PL team.
Instead he's had the very rare start every few months and it's seriously stunted his career. I think KWP seems like the type of lad so nice to not rock the boat but he should have been knocking on Poch's door last year demanding a real opportunity or loan. At the same time Poch and the club should have been fairer with him.
You want to give youth players as much time as possible but 3 years plus of hanging around the 1st team and only having 12 appearances is ridiculous
True but either send him out on loan so he can get some minutes and toughen up or if you don't thibk he'll get better, let him go.Poch likely knows way more about football than any of us and I'm sure he must have noticed some flaws and weaknesses in his game that most of us would have missed and that's why he chose not to keep playing him after that debut.
Onomah MK 2 essentially . When he finally gets to go on loan like Josh, he would have regressed so much it wont matterHe fell into Poch's twilight zone of training with the first team and basically never playing any competitive games. Of course his growth was stunted.
It's a real stain on Poch's last couple of seasons that our youth development went so badly astray. Onomah (for example) was an absolute star at every age-level he played at, KWP was objectively a better player 2 seasons ago than he is now (from what we've seen), it sounds like Edwards had attitude/application issues but that could've been sorted out in-house, he's doing well with Vitoria SC from what I've seen.
