We've been spoiled. The last players to really come through prior to this generation (Spearing, Kelly, Flanno, Robinson) were, Carragher aside, excellent overnight. Owen, Mcmanaman, Gerrard and Fowler were all massively important to the team within months of making their debuts. Apart from Carra we haven't had a player who built his Liverpool career slowly in recent memory.
Its a shame the way modern football has evolved. There's no patience, with fans or within a lot of clubs.
There's probably many players who had huge potential but weren't given the time to develop properly if they didnt hit the ground running.
If he ain't instant, it ain't for us!
We seem to have a manager who has a good philosophy with the younger players so I'm really hoping the likes of Pacheco still has a chance.
The bloke clearly has ability, and if we can get it out of him in this team he'll not only be a real plus but will save us a lot of money too.
