    People can make excuses all they like but it's poor and we need to start giving the kids nore of a chance more often

    Be more relevant to see the number of minutes played by all graduates for all clubs We have produced plenty of players that are doing well at others clubs, as mentioned previously it’s not easy to get into City’s first team

    Developed by us but these went on free transfers. I was looking at the upside where we probably got back at least in transfer fees what it cost to develop them.

    However probably a fact not known by every fan is that clubs have to pay training compensation to clubs who develop players up to the season in which that player reaches their 23rd birthday. So in essence we should have at least received training compensation for those you list.

    Ok, so I have dug around and Trippier left City for Burnley in an undisclosed fee with a sell on clause. When Spurs picked him up from Burnley we got a fee of around £1.24m thereabouts for the sell on from Burnley. Edited the earlier list.

    Digging around I have discovered that Ben Mee did leave for a fee, but it was undisclosed. Also like Trippier possibly has a sell on clause. Both signed for Burnley in the same month Jan 2012 and rumours suggest the sell on clause is 40%.

    Sell on clauses are usually (I think) time limited so I doubt we'd ever get anything for Mee. Trippier was at Burnley for 3½ seasons.
