Can Kai Kennedy play his part this season?


Recommended Posts

My limited knowledge of Kennedy is largely based on the Wrexham game, where he was fairly anonymous for the first 80 minutes. He did come into the game in the last 10 when Wrexham tired but I didn't see anything that suggested that he should be pushing for a first team place this season.

In an ideal world, we'd have five or six youth players breaking into the first team each season.  Normally, I get frustrated at the lack of game time we give our youths, particularly in easier matches or the league cup but this is one season were I think trying to give them game time should be put to the side and all focus should be on winning every single match.

 

Hopefully one or two of them show enough to prove me wrong but SG doesn't strike me as a risk-taker.

I totally agree with the above, Polster, Ojo and Baker - possibly Stewart - are all perfect examples of players who are preventing our Academy boys from getting game time. I would even question the benefit of throwing Defoe on for 10 minutes in certain games when in certain games a youth player could get some valuable minutes - especially at Ibrox.

I think Gerrard would love to throw him in the mix with the first team. However, the pressure to win every game gets in the way of that. Unless Kennedy morphs into some fantastic goal machine, I don't think we will see much of him...save maybe for a cup tie against a Cowdenbeath, Arbroath or some lower division side like that.
