    I'm not sure curtailing what you do and say in public is really maturity, but that's not really the point. What is the point is what happens at 16-18 when these players should be playing 1st team football. That's when it all goes wrong and not just at City but at more or less every Premiership club. It worked at Southampton because their crop of young players got first team chances. It worked at City in the past because Onouha, Barton, SWP, Sturridge, Michael Johnson, Micah, Etuhu etc all got 1st team football. They were involved in the 1st team, and played in the 1st team and improved. I'm sure City's Academy can do this again. Get players to the same level at 16-18, but can the 1st team coach then take these players and play them when if he loses two games its crisis time?

    Currently, our training facilities are all in the same geographical area.

    I think it is highly likely that candidates for PL team are being tried at senior level during training as part of their progress so their ability to integrate should already be known.

    Hopefully we will soon have young players who can take this training ground experience to PL level.

    I wish we had a Like button on here!.........Marvin, sorry mate, but City have moved on from the 80's.

    If you look to a couple of years ago, City were loaning out players to League 1 and League 2 clubs in the main. Move to today, the players that City are now developing are mainly being loaned to Championship clubs and top teams in European leagues. These players are gaining invaluable experience and playing at a high level. Not all the players will make it granted, but in the years to come, City will be producing a team with many home grown players, or don't you trust the Board and Owner?.......they certainly haven't let us down yet.

    He's a nice enough guy and he's definitely no Pidge but he isn't half depressing most of the time. Really really negative.

    Plenty of names bandied about. Pele , Messi , Suarez ,Romario , Ronaldo , Little Ronaldo , Zidane , Henry and we all have our favourites.
    Most of the great players are from South America - with a few from Europe -including Puskas.
    One name not mentioned is Gareth Bale - British( ok Welsh) - he had talent at a young age and was coached to a higher level.
    Not many Brits have been chased by Barca , RM , or Bayern. If City Academy can produce one at that higher level we should be very happy.
    But will he be lured away from City if we are not in the Champs. league every season?.

    If it had been the rags he would have been giddy as fuck about it all. Not for one second suggesting he is a rag but as many have seen, he is yet another who finds fault with the club all the time whilst fawning over others.

    Strange......
