Has the academy production line broke down?


Recommended Posts

Every team from next year is going to be pretty god damn rich. Maybe not billion pound rich but rich enough to do what we need to do.

 

You'd think so but one Neymar or levandowski and that's your money gone.  Man Utd will spend the whole tv money next yr wears we need a fair chunk for wages and some savings in case we go down

 

If 86m isn't enough to keep us up, we deserve to go down (if we make it up in the first place of course)

 

But everyone else has the 86 million and the money and players from previous seasons and for some billionaire owners

 

Lets just give up then

 

Ooh your pushing it there. No ones mentioned giving in

My point is this: IMO there's only going to be more Parity in the PL with the new TV deal because every team will be able to afford better players and more teams should be playing for continental qualification.

 

The money in the Pl just means team spunk money on Bobby average players. The best players rarely stay in England now. Our decline on Europe suggest so too

 

These average players stunt the development of our own players.

The extra money will push up transfer fees, foreign clubs will know that there is more money in England and will try and get their share.

 

It would be sensible for newly promoted sides to hold on to some of the money, rather than blow it all on new players, the stability of the club will be uppermost in some chairman's minds, so I can't see the natural order of things changing that much.

 

The only crucial difference is that the financial gap between the Championship and the Premier League will be huge, especially with parachute payments. The new TV deal may not make a newly promoted team any more competitive within the Premier League, but it will probably mean that any relegated team will have a massive chance of going back up again.

Aye some very positive comments on Chapman from the Barnsley forum - came off the bench and gave a good account of himself, beating players at ease and going close a few times.

 

From his first couple of appearances they think he's some player and will be starting for them soon.

Yes but its league one football, we have Kike Sola... :-P

 

If you could go back to lurking that would be fantastic.

 

Sorry that I dont rate Kike Sola and dont understand the loan at all.

 

He's been brought in as a third choice striker behind Nugent and Rhodes, we sold Kike for cash and brought Sola in on a loan just as cover so we could spend the Kike money elsewhere.

 

What's not to understand?

That we loan a 3rd choice striker that are useless ;) Now we loaned Chapman out and he gets more gam time at Barnsley so thats good, but we still have young strikers that could cover as 3rd choice strikers that are ot out on loan

 

But yes safety first, its the Karanka way, on the pitch too (sadly sometimes)

Without really reopening this topic too much, which young strikers at the club do we have that could be relied on as a third choice? Fewster is getting regular game time at York, Chapman is on loan (and isn't really a striker as I understand it, although I will stand corrected if someone with knowledge of the youth team disagrees). Cooke and Jakupovic seem to be scoring reasonably regularly for the U-19s, but that's one hell of a step up.

    • I just can't see where the money is going to come from judging from the club accounts and Bulkhauls horrendous year. Unless sales are happening
    • As mentioned above I do feel the lack of depth and quality in the first half of the season had an impact with us unable to rotate and rest players in our squad meaning we struggled in the 2nd half of the season. The likes of Mcnair were playing 4 games in 8-9 days with the international breaks but we didn't have any option to rest him given injuries and lack of quality to cover him. I think we were only a point off Watford when we got to January. Unfortunately our 3 loanees came with a lack of match sharpness requiring time to settle and then we lost the likes of Tav Dijksteel and Fry at important parts of the season. I agree with the second part I do worry with giving Warnock significant money considering he has probably got no more than 12 months left with us. It would be a huge gamble and if it goes wrong it sets us back another few years. However we need a fair few signings to even get on par regarding the standard of our squad for this season.   
    • We were certainly worse after January but the 3 players we brought in hardly kicked a ball in the first half of the season and required several weeks if not months to get up to standard. I feel if they had all joined in the summer it would have eased the burden on the squad by giving us more depth and quality after a few weeks of the season. It would have eased the pressure and overplaying the likes of Taverner who ended up getting injured with nobody to come in to effectively replace him. I think our poor form in the 2nd half of the season would have been impacted by 'burnout' when you think about the amount of games several players were having to play. Howson and Mcnair examples of players who struggled towards the end of season. I do worry for next season though as we are going to need at least 6-7 new signings to replace what we have lost and probably a couple more on top of that to be seen as a strengthened team unless our academy players are able to make the step up. Im not sure I have faith in us completing so many signings this summer.  
    • The point being none settled in and we just got worse as the season rolled on and finally give up. A centre back is not what we needed but a new manager. How the hell SG can put faith and money in NW is simply financial suicide.  
    • Withered is very polite way of putting it, I would say we crashed landed with a large thump. What gets me is NW blamed the very signings he made and then concludes the fans will be happy. Not only that he hopes with new signings to finish 10th or possibly above. Setting the bar so low is hardly away to get fans buzzing and parting with money, it’s hardly worth bothering with next season.
