Head of Academy Recruitment Martin Waldron suspended for tapping up Cardiff City schoolboy a couple of years ago

An academy transfer ban on the cards

Canít believe weíre out here about to catch a ban for tapping up talented school kids and none of the fuckers ever make it out the reserves anyway.
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.

No but once a season they do a lap of Goodison with a trophy twice their size won in some tournament that included the likes of Barcelona and Bayern. Maybe we should branch out our tapping up operation to include players over the age of 21.

We do seem to create very good under age teams but no very good premier league players. We seem to produce lots footballers but not really many that would improve us

Same at every club in the land, hence the lack of quality young English players.

Any ban wouldn't be for long. A year or so. Don't think it would make much difference in the grand scheme of things. Especially as very few are making it through our academy right now.

No the bans in Spain were for bringing young foreign players in. You can only recruit within a certain distance under a certain age

What an odd viewpoint. I'm disappointed in the club if this is the case, I expect better.

Gotta push things to the limits. If other clubs do it, do it too.

But given our lack of success in bringing top quality kids through to the first team in this manner it's not a biggie in the grand scheme of things.

Seems we've gone further than "pushing to the limits". Also, we have an excellent record of developing academy prospects, one of the best in the league.

Local kids who have come through the academy we do have a decent record in. Trying to think of any that we have bought or obtained from other clubs that have come through to be successful with us. Holgate is one I can think of. Garbutt another but the less said about him the better.
