Even if Ashley wasn't a c*** I'd want young players to come through. Despite our failures in the academy there are about 5 or 6 right now I have high hopes for.

Not quite sure why you would say that - surely everyone wants young players to come through at all times? - but if we are not making first team signings then it's even more helpful if they do come through.

He'll never be PL standard like. Should make a decent Football League career out of himself though.

 :lol: That's the spirit!

:lol: weighed and measured, shame for the lad that no player has ever improved as they get older
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Theres been literally no investment in the youth academy since Ashley took over, it'd be a minor miracle if any of them turn into PL players  :lol:

 :lol:

Don't know where to start tbh...money lets you bring in better young players for a start. Then better facilities, coaching etc. We just go for local lads no other club decides to take and then let Beardsley et al 'coach' them  :lol:

Best tell the likes of city before they invest anymore in the academy.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.

People became good footballers before millions were spent on academies, no? A player's natural talent can't be influenced by money.

But it can be developed and nurtured. We just produce the non-league players of the future in this tin pot club

So do you think that the reason we've barely created any academy talents recently is because all of the players we've had coming through haven't had natural talent?

Because I'd put a large part of it down to money not being spent properly on facilities and good coaching in the academy and first team

and that's before getting onto how the talent that we do have are often more attracted to the likes of 'boro, where the youth development pisses all over ours. Dunno how anyone could say what Liam's said with a straight face tbh. Our lack of backing for local talent is why we ended up having to pay a world record fee for a player that should have been with us from the beginning but might have ended up on the scrap heap if he'd stayed, same with Beardsley and Carrick.

He came good in a FM game for me so I dubbed him Sean Big Dick. Still think of him as this...

I dont got posts like this. He's young. just scored a goal and made a man of the match performance in his first professional game for us, yet gets written off.
Bang on. Unless Sewelly’s been to plenty reserve matches/Blackpool games where Longstaff played it’s a bit of a sad comment.

I think predicting one of our youth players will make a career for himself in the Football League is a fairly optimistic post to be honest.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

In general terms for the current youth players, yes. In the case of a young player that has already proven himself successful at League 1 level - no.

Off the back of one game? I mean he's probably got a good future but that seems pretty crazy

Maybe.

However, if a player is reaching 21 and has never been involved at any England level I'd be a bit apprehensive about his PL potential.

Obviously there's counter examples and lets hope he's one of them.
