    Well a couple are getting reasonable expeience under Pep now. The rest, for most of the last two managers before Pep, were at the wrong club imo.

    This kind of situation where a kid suddenly becomes an entity by getting football is a typical example of how it works imo. Rashford is another.

    Somehow we have to bridge this gap, partially with Pep giving more kids game time & partially by finding a way of making sure our kids get loans at the right clubs who suit their style & will play them & that if they do well, we will give them a shot.

    Otherwise Sancho, Bobby Duncan etc will become the normal outcome rather than it being unusual.

    they will be the normal by the sheer number of players coming through the Group.

    They were rated as two of the best prospects.

    I don't understand what that means, but I'm just making the point, that unless we improve our ratio of players getting through to some game time in the first team, either via good quality loans or by the route Foden & Diaz are now taking, we will lose many of the 'best' academy players. Which then makes it pretty much irrelevant.

    Right now, that might seem unimportant, but when average players cost 100 mil & UEFA limit the transfer spending, it will suddenly become very important indeed.

    And don't be surprised if all kind os shenanigans occur once brexit kicks in.
