Are you suggesting we just don't bother if we identify someone who could potentially become a world beater? Everyone's more pressing concern is now rather than the future. We surely need to plan for the future too though. More than every side above us because we currently can't sign readymade stars
To be fair, we already do identify youngsters and snap them up, and have done for some time, we do need to concentrate more on the now. Like you say, we need to do both, but the NOW is more important at this present time.
