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

They did and it can be argued that academies have actually had a negative effect on natural talent, we are certainly seeing fewer type of players or different styles, but that isn’t why NUFC fail to produce any talent.

It is out there, but when they end up at the club a combination of poor facilities and coaching prevents them from developing and when they do get to 18-20 their chances of making it at the club is almost non existent and just as slim making it as a pro even lower down.

Players that have a bit more about them and do break into the first-team need a manager who values youth and who can develop thing in an environment that allows that.

Under Keegan and Sir Bobby to an extent where we had a team of good players and there was a pressure to win and challenge, unless a player was of undoubted talent, their route into the team would likely be blocked by a big money signing which is the kind of players fans demand and a team challenging needs.

Today, we could really do with a pool of talent coming through because we have an environment where we don’t have the kind of money to go and blow on certain positions and a manager that values youth and is renowned for developing it.

But our owner doesn’t care about any of that and as such our immediate future on the pitch is weakened by not having an academy or facilities up to scratch that young kids want to join (they opt for Boro or Sunderland more often than not) and if they do, they won’t develop to any decent standard anyway.

If Hayden leaves then this lad has to be part of the squad. He’s more than ready to cover for Diame.

He won’t start ahead of Shelvey, Diame or Ki but if Hayden does leave he’ll be next in line.

He’s more than capable to fill in and he’ll learn loads over the next few months being involved with the first team.

Same goes for Josef Yarney, who will replace Mbemba.

Amazing that we have become even cheaper, flicking squad players and replacing them with kids who may or may not be good enough...

At least if they do well we can sell them at a huge profit which we're bound to benefit from  O0

It would be Ashley's wet dream if we had a model like Southampton.

Maybe someone should tell him that if we improve the facilities there is more likelihood of this happening?

Played a decent game in a friendly against St. Pats and now he's Diame's understudy. Love this place.

Which is a good job, given that the majority of his fee was based on his progress. We might actually end up making close to £7m on him.

Aye, looked comfortable in both roles (advanced in the first half before dropping deeper into midfield in the second). Nicked the ball well high up the pitch a few times, and his height means he can get into physical duels too. Promising signs.

Fair play today, held his own against much better opposition. Played the ball around nicely at times.

Did well. Disciplined and some nice passes.

Will be playing in League 1 though cos Neesy said so.

Had a 30-second spell where he looked decent, other than that it was a performance Jack Colback would have been proud of.

Did well. Showed his passing range near the end, wish he tried to get on it a bit more though given how tidy he is. Promising
