This displays the huge gulf between top six and the rest ... we can't risk playing youngsters in 'lesser' games because we always need the points .... so they never get a chance .....

I'd believe that to be true, if it weren't for Rice. I don't personally buy the argument. If a manager deems a player good enough, they'll play regardless of age.

As much as I generally like Pellegrini a lot, I don't agree with him on releasing him already from the squad, he's seen him play in practically no games or training. That's assuming of course his ear wasn't bent by anyone on the Board if they said they received an offer too good to turn down for him having played so little fornus but that's difficult to know right now.

To clairfy, I'm not saying Burke is a world beater or anything of the sort, but I do believe in him as a young classy Centre Half with a big future ahead of him in the game. Right character, right defensive ability, composed on the hall, always vocal, mature before his years. I see little difference in him and Rice, only 1 of them has been given a fair crack of the ship since Bilic gave him the nod beginning of last season. Reece will sooner or later be a Premium regular, I have no doubt as long as he stays away from bad injury.

Many other academy products I couldn't say the same and rightly went by the wayside.

I would put money on Burke never gracing the Premier League again.

I liked burke but he is 22 and is not good enough for a top 10 team in the premier league . same applies to Cullen also 22. time for the next batch of young players to try and stake a claim.

rice doing nicely and a first team squad player now.
quinna
browne
samuelson
Holland
Johnson
Martinez

football is a hard business and hard decisions have to be made . we cannot wait years for a player to develop sometimes it doesn't work out at one club but the player goes on to do really well a few years later at a different club. such as Pogba and de bryne

Still rate this kid, don't think he was dealt a fair hand.. Confident we'll see him back in the PL in a few years. Good luck Reece. I'll be watching your progress. :crest:

He did, but we were in the Championship at the time.
For what its worth, I think Reece wasn't really given a fair crack. I thought he looked very comfortable when I saw him play for the 1st team. Unfortunately that's football now. Hopefully he will work hard and have a great career elsewhere.
