    Fulham and Southampton are definitely the model to follow if you're a smaller club - amazing what both accomplish.

    Can't wait for the next generation of English talent to all hail from our academy and playstyle

    It's certainly a model, but I think Southampton are quite lucky in that they don't have a lot of competition geographically for kids.

    Brentford scrapped their academy and instead pick up those who have been let go from bigger clubs. They've had a fair few of these players contributing to their first team, so fair play.

    It'd be very hard for a Bury or Rochdale to compete with what City (or United) can offer the best local talent, do they might as well benefit from what we teach the ones who don't quite make the grade.

    Yeah I watched this game, some talent in this age group it seems but was hard to make out who was who. Do you know if the little number 10 was Cole Palmer? If so, he looked a really good little player with silky skills and the vision of a proper number 10.

    I think the others involved are

    Louie Moulden
    Taylor Harwood-Bellis
    Samson Robinson
    Joe Hodge

    Ok cheers for that, so Samson Robinson was the right back, was impressed from what I saw from him also

    Got the highlights from the Russia game just incase you haven't seen it

    Cheers - am out here watching

    Joe hodge got MOTM v Russia

    City lads controlled game when they came in v Slovenia - add a level of calmness

    They were rested in the main v USA in a bit of a dead rubber - ( in hurricane conditions. )

    Won 3-2 . Topped group so in semi
