I don’t believe Dilly said anything about closing Academies down.

Surely even academy players have still got to be able to “do it”.
If I ever get outta here I've thought of giving it all away,
to a registered charity, as all I need is a pint a day, if I ever get outta here.

Really Dilly?   Not sure it did Fergie or Man Utd any harm when Messrs Nevilles, Butt, Scholes, Giggs and Beckham all came through the Academy to first team then international status, do you ?

That was Manchester United and the greatest Manager of all times.

The alignment of the Stars and a once in a lifetime event.

You know the saying if you don’t buy a ticket you don’t win the raffle.  If we don’t have the cash to bring in the ready made product then we have to develop it.  Let’s just hope we have closed the loopholes that saw Joe Taylor slip through the net.

I would hope within a couple of years we get back to seeing some home grown product pulling on a first team shirt.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

If promising local and academy players like Royale are not going to be given an opportunity in the short term, with the attendant risk of losing them, surely there is a loaning out strategy: hence Robbie Back's appointment??

Have any of our u23's been loaned out into senior football?  :dontknow:

Interesting post B & G…….Dilly questioned the benefit of developing players. I would argue that developing players is the main function of academies. So, if you argue that there is little benefit in developing players, it follows, to my mind that you would close your Academy as it wouldn’t be of benefit.

Over to you two

You're the only one bringing up the suggestion of closing academies.

As you say its your "mind" as to why you think that's what should happen.

In fact, Dilly didn't even mention Academies.

Thank you, B & G!  And no umbrage towards others!  I didn’t suggest closing Academies.  Obviously young players can improve, but I believe there is too much talk from pundits, etc, about tactics and developments.  I was only quoting Jimmy Greave, who I happen to believe!  And, while I’m at it, whatever is Joe Cole on about now about today’s finished lunchtime game?!!

No umbrage taken Dilly…why would one…it’s a football forum after all and I am well aware you didn’t mention Academies directly.



(However,one final attempt just to help B &G , Dilly posted… “Not sure “developing “players works”.

Many people (not just my mind) think that the main role of Academies is in developing players….it’s what they do.

Therefore, if one were to conclude that developing players didn’t work, then Academies would be of little value .

It’s a logical argument for most brains. The fact that Dilly didn’t mention Academies is  irrelevant to that logic)

Talking of developing players. Fletcher Toll scored a hat trick today.
