I think we need to work on that reputation, as we haven't brought that many stars through lately.
I don't mind if we sacrifice a couple of league places or Europe if we start to bring the youngsters in on a more regular basis.

I'm all for youth players coming through too Zambucco, but to what end? I'm not sure that sacrificing Europe or league placings is a step forward? Surely rather than accommodating youth they should be good enough to hit the ground running. Maybe the current crop just aren't up to scratch. It could be the case.

I like to see the youth come through as much as the next person. But as long as we are successful I'm not that bothered If Jimmy from Romsey doesn't get an opportunity in the first team.

We should be able to do both, MP has shown here and at spurs that he can get the best out of the young players. We have some good talent, its not just about risking them in the starting 11. Its about coaching them through, giving them confidence and giving them meaningful opportunities
