Added to what it does to the morale of the entire Under 23's and younger lads as well, basically seeing the best of the crop not even being given a shot despite doing absolutely everything he could in Under 23's and with the International junior sides.

Seeing the rs start that Trent Alexander lad - whose only 19 - and not even a natural right back, Spurs doing the same with that Walker Peters - whose similar age, meanwhile Kenny cant get a look in even on the bench - and we start a striker at wingback and then bring on a absolutely bog average right back second half.

Given we actually look REALLY pedestrian and one paced - i'd have thought the injection of the likes of Kenny, Lookman and such would actually give us a bit more energy

Think it's a bit unfair to suggest not playing Kenny will put off the U23 lads. Can't ignore just how many minutes Davies, DCL, Lookman & Holgate got last season and how many of them train with the first team.

We all want to see them given chances but it's a cutthroat business and Koeman's job is on the line if he is crap; he can't play them all.

He should play in the next two weeks. Baines will need a rest in the next fortnight, Martina will play left back meaning right back will be either Holgate or Kenny. Ideally on Thursday against Split.

Well that's what I've said previous; lots of games when the EFL Cup kicks on. We'll know then where he's at in the pecking order - if he hasn't gone out on loan by then.

But I definitely wouldn't read anything into him not playing vs Stoke nor the two EL games.

To be fair it's a big ask for him getting above Coleman, Martina, Holgate and DCL in the right back pecking order
Don't forget Davies in that list. Kenny is quite justifiably pissed off with his treatment. And the weight of opinion for Kenny being given game time is apparently making Koeman even more stubborn in not playing him. Make out for yourselves what sort of individual that makes our manager.

Where have you heard that Kenny is dissatisfied ?
Do you not think the coaching staff talk to players and explain why they are not being played and what areas of their game needs improvement.

The Premiership is not a training ground, it is for the finished article.
As with Davies last season I expect the coaching staff are working with the player to iron out what they see as deficiencies in his game.

His chance will come, he needs to be ready when it does.
It made more sense for him to play a full game last Friday than sit on his backside on Saturday.

Even if Koeman was genuinely influenced to not pick a player because the fans want him to play, which is insane, he's definitely not stupid enough to go around telling people that. Where does this nonsense get dreamed up?
There's a growing feeling amongst the morons that Koeman hates the youngsters, despite the fact that he blooded several youngsters last season.

The morons want answers for why their 'the next...' favourite youngsters aren't getting much game time. The answer is they're probably not ready yet. But don't let that get in the way of a good moron off.

Just look at how many 'highly rated' youngsters Chelsea and City ship out every season never to be heard of again.

What's with the Morons thing mate? Are people not allowed to disagree with the manager now?
