This is it eh? So so much to learn - you can get away with a young centre back if it’s in a functional team, a midfield that can actually protect the back four, for a start. In this Everton team you’re constantly being put in situations where you’re having to make decisions, being asked difficult questions, whether to go with the runner or go to the ball, step out or stay in the back line and ultimately his inexperience and weaknesses are being exposed. This isn’t the team to be blooding a young centre back that needs to develop and learn. It’ll kill his confidence if they don’t watch it.
He's not that young. He's 24 next month.
He's eager. But that doesnt mean good as some seem to think.
Its not just him though. We dont have any real good defenders. Thats why we very rarely keep clean sheets.
