    It's interesting you mention those forwards with most being from South America, you only have to look at Barcelona's academy in that they can constantly produce top class midfielders yet they struggle to develop forwards and always seem to look for the top South American to fill the position.

    I wonder if our academy will produce a blend or will it focus (whether by purpose or by accident) on a certain type of player a bit like Barcelona does??

    Well, seeing as NYCFC are to play 2 games there in Feb, they will have to get everything in place before then presumably.

    Marvin is a blue as they come, just a tad pessimistic.


    I wonder if they will announce some new sponsors when the CFA officially opens.

    I know he is. Just fail to see how anyone can view what we have done as anything other than wonderful.

    As for sponsers, you can bet your bottom dollar we will.

    I'm looking forward to the futsal stadium being built.

    Its the fastest growing form of the game and will be a massive boost for the sport as international teams will play there as well as clubs from all over the world.

    Etihad Campus, home of England Futsal anyone?

    Bloody he'll how depressing has this great thread become?

    Has any of the white elephant brigade stopped to think that the kids from the academy in recent years have just not been good enough? You can't polish a turd.

    How many world class players has this country produced in last 10 years? It's no secret to anyone that grass roots in this country is shit, the FA bang on about it all the time.

    So the FA have built state of the art facilities at St Georges park, it will take years to see any effect but did you think anyone at FA said what's the effing point it'll be a white elephant ? African kids play barefoot and still develop!!!!

    Like with anything in life if you want to improve anything you invest in it, time as well as money.

    Does having the best academy in the world guarantee producing the best players in the world? Definitely not. Does it improve the chances? Yes by a big effing margin.

    I was told the Nth Car Park but as long as it can be part of the wider 'world of sports' that we have near the Eithad it will certainly add to destination.
