Would love to see a player who can create chances from midfield and show Young the ropes. Being inexperienced Young is going to be inconsistent, he needs to dip out of the side occasionally. I don't see this happening though. I think it's a hash reality, geography and economics. We can't afford to buy a player of such calibre and we're not fashionable enough to attract such a player on loan. Yet. Another reason why I think persevering with trying to play football and reverting to hoofball as a pragmatic plan b as opposed to defaulting to hoof ball. If we play football the right way tm then we maybe more favourable to managers further up the league.
Therefore we will have to watch Young grow as a footballer. We will have to watch him develop. It sounds romantic, but we know he's going to make plenty of mistakes and go missing from games. That is what learning is all about. My biggest fear is what if the crowd get on his back. What it the crowd don't afford him the chance to make mistakes and learn from them? We don't have good form considering the grief Luke Summerfield had.
Many of the best midfield players/inside forwards got their early chance on the wing. I thought he was effective out there last season but had immediate doubts on seeing him central when he was moved inside for the one of the final games of the season. Perhaps there is an element of him wanting to be a central midfield player rather than a winger, yet it is the outside position he is actually better suited to?
