Sad to lose yet another midfield talent but when you think about it, although IE talks our youth up, he doesn’t exactly show his faith in them. Ronan and DP loaned out and George not even got game time yet, despite how good he was last year. Maybe young Kian feels he’s got more chance of progressing at Burnley, it surely can’t be about money?

He's going to be very disappointed if he thinks he's getting game time at Burnley any time soon. FWIW, I think Thomason will get game time between now and the end of the season. Politic isn't good enough/fit enough to be getting game time at Port Vale so certainly wouldn't be anywhere near our 1st team and Darcy isn't currently good enough to be in our team yet either

Doubt we couldve stopped it even if we wanted to

A shame but, as we're regularly being told, we overrate our youths all the time.

Teams higher up, with more cash are able to nick ours, we will do it to others. But as said above, the lads 2 or 3 seasons off getting first team games even if he continues his promise.

Sad when clubs no bigger than us nick our players for nowt, we need to get back in the championship so we are better positioned to hold onto the better young players.

Agree MK but you would have thought the lad would have more chance of first team action here than he will at a PL club?

I think everyone thought our kids could make the grade after that Coventry game. 

Facts are they weren't and in many cases still aren't ready in the main. Hopefully 3 or 4 make it with us but I trust Evatt to make the call when they step up.

Brocky's played a fair amount under Evatt, to be fair. Thomason hasn't had opportunities in the league this season yet, but Evatt did keep the faith and pick him for important fixtures last season when I often thought he might've gone with a more experienced option.

If they're good enough, he'll play them.

Brockbank has had plenty of time and he's shown that he's a squad player, not up to our current first team standards.

I trust IE too Stevie and of course he shouldn’t play players if they’re not ready but I thought for example that he might have given Ronan at least a try in place of Fonz who constantly underperformed last year and the speed he dispatched DP after recovering from injury seemed a bit disappointing. Obviously he didn’t think either were worthy and I totally respect that and I agree George will surely get his chance at some point this season but we all like to see our youth progress so let’s hope a few of them do reach the level needed. 😉
