    Has the time finally come to give our young guns a chance?

    As ridiculous threads go the last 24 hours has been pretty prolific, so here's my offering:

    Q: what is the point of our current development squad?

    March, Dunk, Cook, Jake Robinson and Simon Fox aside, why bother?

    We are desperate for some pace and urgency in the central final third and what do we have? Two sluggish target men and a crocked genuine number 10. I say chuck Tilley right in the deep end and see what happens.

    Better dead than smeg.

      Spot on, Kosh.

      We're paying Aaron Connelly too, time he started scoring goals in the Premier League.

      And why has Sanchez got a squad number if he's not going be in goal from time to time? Sink or swim, pal!

      No much too soon to throw them in at the deep end.

      Maybe a run out from the bench on Tuesday if we are comfortably ahead otherwise leave them to the Development squad. Throwing them in and finding them out of their depth will knock them back and also mean more lost points for the Albion

      So; when do we chuck 'em in?!?

      When we sell them to an rival team, where they flourish?!? When they've been on loan to Dagenham for so long they're like 28?!?

      We only seem to operate our Dev to 'develop' league 1 and 2 clubs, or offload future stars for nothing.

      Chuck 'em in Grandad, you know you want to...

      But my friend - they are not developing in the development squad - are they? They're at best treading water. Tilley has something special - I bet Everton regret chucking that 16 year old Rooney fellow in...

      So Tilley is the new Rooney?

      When they have proved they are big and strong enough to match our opponents. Get ourselves some points on the clock and then bring them through the cup games but not yet.

      Certainly not... but if he's never given a chance then we will never know his potential will we! Don't underestimate what a chance given and taken can do for a player who might just prove to be a star. Conversely how those never given a chance can lose belief and never fulfil their potential.
