Charsley and Evans still starting games, unbelievable.

I find it very odd that Brands is seemingly disinterested in the U23s or the academy. Thought there would’ve been a root and branch overhaul by now. Maybe our hands are somewhat tied by the ban, or he’s just had a lot on his plate, sorting out the first team.

He attends fairly regularly I believe, but I am finding it hard to believe there aren't sweeping changes coming.

We just don't produce prem players, and we desperately need to. Feels like some improvement in regards to loans this year, but there's players that should be playing mens football like. I've no idea whatsoever why players we've released are starting over players on our books.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

He didn’t bother with it in the first year because there was so much to do regarding the first team and setting up scouting networks.

I’m sure there’s work in progress and we’ll see changes soon.

I reckon the biggest issue is sorting out decent loans for these players.

I see Virginia has been dropped at reading so that’s a year wasted for him. This happens too much and the players start going backwards.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Should do a mini salzburg / leipzig model imo.

Worked wonders for Chelsea as well with their relationship with vitesse.

Do you think in terms of youth players breaking through and being prem league standard is down to 'producing' or its more important the actual finding. I mean if you look at chelsea now for example or man utds 'kids' was it something that they did in nurturing and developing those players or just a case of having the best scouting and the most attractive propositions for the best young talent. Id imagine it is the latter but I genuinely dont know how important the setup is for development.

Chelsea aren't a great example, they loan out about 25 young players a year, very few if any ever make it at the club. When Abramovich hired Frank Arnesen he was seen as the man to bring on the young players, something like £60m later not one academy player had turned out for the first team. Josh McEachren was the first player since John Terry about 10-12 years earlier to come through academy and he hasn't exactly gone on to great things.

It took Chelsea years to get a decent structure in place after their take over, it will quite probably take us the same.

Errr I think it's a mix of

Good scouting and identification (RBL)
Good catchment area (PSG)
Good 'use of the rules' shall we say (City, Us)
Good coaching throughout the age groups (Chelsea, City, RBL,)
Good pathways into first team football, here or elsewhere from as early as possible (Chelsea, RBL)

Probably lots more but for me the most important thing is coaching and pathways. The most talented player in the world for their age group will wilt if they aren't coached correctly, and if they don't get mens football (w good coaching at an appropriate level) as soon as possible.

Re Chelsea : they've not got many into the first team but they run it as a business, get them a pathway into first team togger on the continent or in the championship then sell. Arguably the best academy in the Premier league to be honest.

Gordon netted again yesterday; his current form deserves a first team squad call up for League Cup on Tuesday

And Simms opened his U23 goalscoring account last week

Are we still playing players due to be released by the club?

No, they've been released and we're still playing them.

Understand that we want to provide these lads with the opportunity of a career in the lower leagues but come on, they’ve had their opportunity.
