You keep going on about our youth but even of the young players who have made first team appearances history shows that (not just with us but Premier League clubs in general) the harsh reality is only two or three of them will possibly have decent Premier League careers and more than likely not with us, the majority well end up having to go down the leagues to make a career. We've had an excellent youth set up for years and a successeful academy but the chances of players making a career at the top level are slim.
Agree with the rest, this squad with a decent, positive minded manager is inside the top ten easily even without any additions.
im just going on what i've seen for the England youth games.. the players we had in those teams played pretty well... i agree that a few wont make it.. but ive got faith in the likes of Holgate (who i feel at this age is better than where Stones was in his career) Lookman, and DLC, Connolly has been pretty solid for bolton i think it was last season, and played pretty well in the Toulon trophy...Kenny I feel will be a cult hero at our club,., he just seems to have that character.. which hasnt really shone for us.. but again when i've seen him for england.. he oozes class.
the only one who i dont think will make it, is Davies.. ;/
but it would be great to have a core group of youngsters who break the mold and make it in the premierleague,
