    Absolutely. We have two top class players in nearly every position and it is a strength. The danger, of course, is that it blocks opportunity. I would like to see us shift slightly so that we introduce more opportunity to more young players; two academy graduates on every PL subs bench and two starters in every cup game (FA and Carabao) would be my current ideal.

    I'm not sure I agree though, but I assume you mean as a mandate of all PL clubs, not just us?.

    No, I would like us to begin to embed it as a club strategy.

    We seem to agree on a lot so I am sure that one small difference of opinion is cool!

    Stones, Laporte, Garcia, Tosin? & Komps would that be enough next season, that's the question.

    Not if Stone or Laporte got injured for a time it wouldn't.

    We can’t let Otamendi go without a replacement, even if it’s a short term loan but that’s not our style. As Pep as stated previously we just can’t trust Vinny’s fitness, however much we fucking love him.

    I’m happy with Garcia in the League/FA cups but it’s not fair to throw him in at the deep end in top 5/6 & Champions League knockout games this early in his career, he needs more time.

    Garcia has done well in a couple of cup games but I don’t think ready for the first team yet. Tosin can’t get in the first team at WBA and kompany always injured. We will need another if Otamendi goes.
