Re: Etihad Campus, Stadium and Collar Site Development Threa 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?
