Looks like heís trying to pin it on us for his failings. But at the same time I think he does have a point. We do seem to churn out a lot of decent youngsters but when incorporated into the team itís hard for them to progress. Itís shows that some ďmake itĒ stones et al. But there is a correlation with what Barkley has said. We donít seem to get to that other level on the field so maybe heís not far for the truth. We do seem to get to a certain point and canít break that ceiling and push on. Itís been ingrained in the team for years and whichever manager weíve had, Moyes, Martinez, Koeman, and Allardyce, we donít seem to break the cycle, so to speak.
It just canít be at the managerial front.
