Totally agree with Gonzo in that U23 football is poor preparation for 1st team. Not least because U23 games are played at a much slower pace.
As a result, the majority of lads are going to struggle for an extended period when trying to step up and play for the 1st team.
However, every now and again we get a pleasent surprise when a youngster takes to it like a duck to water and quickly plays as if they've been in the first team for years.
Without giving the odd one a chance when the opportunity arises we will never know who will be a success.
The upside of the current injury crisis is seeing how well Bissaka has taken to it.
And from watching the U18s regularly, I know that his "success" will give a massive lift to those in the age groups immediately behind his. They'll be renewed belief that there is the possibility they could also make it.
