I apologise, I was shocked at the part I highlighted. I don`t care where they are from, but the age thing is a huge differentiator.
Ben is tantamount to a kid (Makes me old I guess), like a lot of them, and kids are distracted, have their minds on what they see and have little experience of coping with pressures both internal and external.
All them laughing and joking during training and maybe even during games, does not necessarily show their demeanour 24x7
Sure he knows he has been sub (sub) standard of late, and is told how to cope, but he has to do it, and he has little experience of doing so
As always, we all want the same
