He’s been punished for some unprofessional behaviour, hence training away from the first team, and sitting in the development squad seats at games. I’m sure once the staff are happy that he’s learnt his lesson he’ll be back training with the first team, but might need to work a bit harder to be given a chance.

You know this for a fact ?

What unprofessional behaviour?

All makes sense tbh. There was no logical reason for him not to be on bench so Mourinho has played out the not ready line.
TBF Mourinho made a point of saying in the BT interview before the Chelsea game that playing young players is as much about mentality and maturity as it is about talent.

All makes sense that Parrott has done something unprofessional/isn't working hard enough behind the scenes and that's why he's not involved.

Yep. Some of us have been saying that but as per, fans know better when it comes to this.

Look at Tanganga, focused and strong. Got good people around him too. Jose knew he wouldn't be phased, knew he could trust him, knew he wouldn't abuse the trust and knew he'd be strong enough if he had a poor game. You can't throw players in until they show this. Imagine if Parrott was chucked on, scored a goal and let it all go to his head. Recipe for disaster. Until they show maturity, they can't be trusted.

Let's hope that Parrott listens to the good people around him and shows maturity. Otherwise he'll be the next Marcus Edwards.

That's kind of the point, youth won't reach their potential without game time. Marcus Edwards is now not the player he should be - neither are KWP, Onomah etc.
Onomah was never good enough, even pleasant little Fulham dont like him

Terrible timing by him. Might have missed the opportunity of a lifetime. Wonder where Kane would be now had he missed his window of opportunity.

And yet he was immense at every youth level. There's an undeniable trend of several of our most promising young players stagnating on Poch's watch.

And Dele was there as well.
Of course he was lol, any chance to get topless and put those small round Pravda or whatever the fuck they are sunglasses on.

Gutted for parrot if he’s messed up his behaviour as he’s really shot himself in the foot if so but we were all young once, he will learn.

Well it would have to be serious disciplinary for him not to be included in a match day squad that consists of zero centre forwards
