There was word that the group of under 16s at Derby are incredible.

Be a sad day if they are poached.

 

If this turns out to be true then the club need to bring in some advisors. We are clearly developing an awful lot of talent and we need to put a stop to these players being poached for pennies. It's simply not good enough.

Its how it works unfortuantly, until a player can sign a pro deal at 17 this is how it is. The compensation structure is there to help pay.

We did the same to Swindon for Bogle & JML

7 or 8 of the U16 have featured in the U18s matchday squad this season. Sebagabo made his 6th appearance of the season today... he only turned 15 in September!

It's how it works, however other clubs are doing a far better job at protecting their young players and then getting a bigger fee. If all of our current academy players were at another club, that club would probably pocket £20m+ were is we are lucky if we get 20% of that. It's not good enough.

Why would a club pay that much for players that they can take a club to a tribunal amd pay the deciding fee.

Lots of young players move around clubs, we signed Knight at a similar age from an Irish club.

The only young player who has gone for big money is Bellingham, I cant think of any others?

You are looking at it through the prism of minors. Many clubs have kept hold of players, given them opportunities in the first team and then sell. 

We need to get better at enthasising there is a clear route to the first team. When they make it and a bigger and better opportunity comes, the club will assist in helping the player choose that right opportunity. That we won't treat them like a hostage. 

This move for these lads could end up being a huge step backward because as we all know, our academy sides are full of players stepping into an advanced age group. These lads are most likely in that situation and end up in a matter of weeks being shoved back in Man United's academy, playing with the same age group again.

Is this not exactly what we are currently doing? Today we had 3 academy players starting with another 6 on the bench - how much more can we do to show to young players we have a clear route to our first team?
