Has the academy production line broke down?

Jakupovic and Curry :)

 

its a spot one the bench if even that (Kike Sola havent made the bench the last 2 games) We have Stuani on the bench that can play winger, nr10 or Striker

Sorry you're absolutely right, it's Curry not Cooke.

 

I know what you're saying, but I would be very nervous relying on one of them to score the match winner if we picked up injuries or suspensions.

You are less nervous relying on Kike Sola? I suppose he has more experience and in his youth he scored some goals in La liga but now? I havent seen him much as he very seldom plays for us but what I seen, not impressed, I hope we dont pay all his wages?

 

And emergency loans can be made if serious injuries?

As much as I haven't been blown away by Kike II, he does have a lot more experience than under 19s, so yes I would be less nervous with him.

 

I do see you what you're saying though.

lets remember that Mitchell Curry is SIXTEEN years old and Jakupovic is the grand old age of SEVENTEEN.

 

Are we really debating why they're not on our bench?

Age is just a number, Rooney was 16 ;)

 

Rooney was the best talent of his generation...

And how did they know that its not like they loaned him out before? Maybe Curry is the best of his ;)

 

I guess Rashford is his the best of his, he is 18, nt going out loan before and will probably start his 3rd game in a row now

 

ut now I am just being annoying as its fun making your blood boil :P

There hasn't really been a production line has there? Just been one average player who's decided to come back and a nonce?

Cattermole? Morrison? Brunt? (does he count?) Wheater? Gibson? Fry? I'm sure there's more I'm missing.

True but I wouldn't say they're as good as the Downing or Johnson. Most have been mid/low tier premier league players apart from those.

Whats your expectations regarding the academy?

 

If we ignore the likes of Morrison, Downing, Gresham, Wheater, Steele, Brunt and Cattermole then the fact that people like Charlie Wyke are earning a living in professional football is testiment to the success of the academy.

 

People need to be realistic the vast majority of kids in academy's will not continue to play football after 20. Those that continue to play will be for the majority in the lower leagues and the remaining few that play premier league or championship football have made a bloody massive achievement.

Academies don't ONLY provide diamond quality players. The fact we regularly churn out players good enough to play professional football as a career at all shows we have a good production line.
