    I know this is partially a joke but it’s kinda true. Academy players should be a little bit more patient at top clubs and keep grinding away and making the most of their opportunities. Rashford has seen his minutes diminish in favor of more experienced players, Iwobi really isn’t that good currently and Liverpool play their few out of necessity because they don’t have any quality plus injuries. I would love to see Phil Tosin and Brahim play the rest of the season and have great pre seasons but usually rhe ones who play the most academy players don’t win trophies in the top leagues. There was a stat I saw earlier about very few teams win with such a young forward line like we did with Gabe Leroy and Raheem.

    Yes, it would be great if every starting eleven until the end of the season contained at least one or two youth players.
