People said the same about Hitler

Hitler born in Redditch? Well fuck me, I'd never heard that before.

Mine Kampf was really about trying to get parked in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.

And who can forget the infamous Winyates Rally.

Was that where they announced they were invading Greenlands?

Rory Wilson enlisted at the age of 16 for what?
Allow the lad to grow in Scotland.
This incessantly purchasing of young players is getting over done.
Otherwise, it's no surprise that players believe the hype and expect too much too soon. In a few years we have the same situation we're having with Chukwuemeka.

I hate to break it to you but 16 is quite old to be enlisted/recruited.

You buy young players in the hope they get better so you can play them or sell them. If you wait until they reach their potential every man and his dog will want them.

Footy mentioned Chukwuemeka but failed to mention the recent long term contracts signed by Ramsey and Iroegbunam.

At the same time, you can see that Chuk already wants out at the raw age of 18, so at what age are we supposed to be recruiting youth then?

I would much rather have a young player come through our academy system and be introduced to the first team (and our expectations as a professional) at an early/ier age.

Its a business model and they call it club's ambitions for their youth sides, Purslow said: "The ultimate goal is to populate the under-23 team with 11 outstanding 16, 17 and 18-year-olds, then I will know itís working."

These clubs can sign them, fail them or sell their talent.
By making unmet promises and having high expectations of young men, you can damage their careers and well being and all they do is end up in League Two.
Some will just settle for that league or some will rise up again even as squad members higher up the leagues but only few will become elite.
Wilson could easily get home sick and that would be a waste all round.

That just doesn't make any sense, though?

Are we to completely abandon prospecting and signing young talent because we have high expectations or unique, unforeseen circumstances pop up?

I genuinely have no idea what your point is, or how this mindset would help the club?

I think the point is to create a strong academy and to be able to promote as many of them as possible into the first team, thus saving huge transfer fees. If some players don't want to stay, you sell them, hopefully for more than you bought them for.

Look how many academy graduates chelsea have either in the first team or sold for tidy profit.

I know it's off season and people are bored but some of the complaints on here recently have been pretty staggering. We currently have super rich owners who seem to be doing their best and for some people it's still not enough to be optimistic and desperate to pick any kind of hole in it.

Cheer up lads
