    Good news, but only if they're now given the chance in the first team. When we're 3-0 up at Anfield against Crap F.C. with half an hour to go, don't bring Lucas on, get Spearing in there and see what happens.Different with Darby , particularly if Arbeloa goes (which I still hope he doesn't) as Johnson will obviously start as Benitez' first choice. Knock on effect would be to encourage the other youngsters in the academy that there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel if they work hard and develop. Add Dalglish into that equation and there should be some good stuff to come.....
