Are Davies and Connolly that far ahead of him? Seems strange he hasn't played for the first team yet. You can guarantee he would have done under van Gaal or Klopp.

let's hope so, might give ross a swift kick in the ass. seeing a younger player scoring left and right ross might actually track back and make a tackle.

how does another player scoring, encourage an attacking player to defend? Or am I missing something here? :huh:

I think he needs to be doing a lot more than bagging hatricks and regularly scoring spectacular goals before he is worthy of a place on our substitutes bench ahead of the likes of Niasee, Piennar, Osman and Kone

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not....

Bring him on as a 60th minute sub against Bournemouth. See how he goes. If he grabs his chance then start him in the Leicester and Norwich games.

I really don't get this new phenomenon where people are picking what subs we need and the timings for them before a ball is kicked. You make decisions on them dependant on the state of the game (even if you don't agree with the manager's decisions at the time). Predicting them, or saying what needs to happen is just daft when you have no idea what the score will be at any given time.

for an introduction to the first team in a run in of hopefully meaningless games, I agree with it. Any other time

It's based on general form I guess, I.e we know we'll be losing at that point so why not plan. But your principe is correct

Rather keep Martinez away from him in fairness.

martinez has had him training with the 1st team and asked him to express himself more which he is now doing.

I think he will be on the bench next game.

I would normally agree but with three dead rubbers to play I think Dowell deserves his chance. He could be started against Bournemouth I suppose but I think it might be fairer on the lad to bring him on from the bench but with long enough left to have an opportunity to make a real contribution. Hence my suggestion of bringing him on in 60th minute.

Agree, it's been frustrating me all season. Then the manager gets criticism for not being flexible or having a plan b.....Maybe he does read our threads haha.

Martinez has been doing that all season!

 

We already know that he will bring Mirallas/ Delefeou on for Lennon in the 68th minute against Bournemouth and the 73rd minute against Norwich

 

The score or the way the game is going will not influence his subs

Yeah, I think he should bring Mirallas on against Bournemouth with 30 seconds of added time left, It didn't work at Wembley but you've got to keep trying.. :D

Martinez has said he's "close" to getting in the first team.

 

I'm not really sure what else he can do to be more than close. If the current first teamers were performing then fair enough, but they're not. And our season is done so you may as well give him a go.

Just start him up front with Rom, with a really attacking midfield. Just go for something completely different, it's not like it would make any difference if we lost. Start Connoly and Davies too.
