I was speaking with my friend about new players who get benched off the bat and struggle to break into the team whilst fans lament for them to play more. I very rarely see these players become reliable 1st team players over time. Sometimes people just aren't good enough. When I look at our key players they are rarely guys who were disrespected for long periods. Hopefully he breaks the trendI hope that he does play tonight. We need to start finding out if he's really good enough or not, put him in a strong side against weak opposition and let's find out. He's done little so far but it's always been shoehorned in to random sides. Matic should not play twice in a week so it leaves a spot open for him to fill.
