I read yesterday that every team line up Ajax have put on the pitch since 1981 has had at least one academy player in it. That is quite remarkable.
I know we are going down a different path with our academy now and i hope it's productive but I really think that is something we should aim to copy. I'm still for signing 2/ 3 quality players each year if we can but realistically we have to promote more of our own and make it clear there is a pathway for them.
Hopefully there will be no signing of mercenaries after a retirement package or diddies from lower league England who can't believe there luck when they get a 3 year contract and double there old wage.

aye a can see barry mckay playing in a uefa cup final.

holland have had a quality international team, we have not . end of story

That's his point blueblood. Holland have a good international team because of their youth set up and the way they develop younger players. It's something we should be copying. I saw a stat last night, don't know how accurate it is, but it said that Ajaxs team is only worth 15 million so surely that should be motivation to get a better youth setup along with youth scouting in place.

totally agree PeterHuistra said a while back too Benfica do exactly the same with there youth, there team is crazy young

25 May 2017 16:55:59
Our young guns never fulfil potential. why. not given a chance. simples. 60 to 100 first team games by 20 year old soon mature them

25 May 2017 21:41:27
Davie that is right but the fans won't wait. Whilst the young players get that 60 game experiance there are a good few losses along the way. Then the fans want the msnager out so the manager won't take the risk.

It doesn't have to be that way Johnny. 2 good youngsters coming through each season playing alongside good players should progress. there is always pressure on Ajax, Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, Dortmund to win games/ leagues but they don't fear blooding the youngsters. Now more than ever we have to hope to produce more of our own

25 May 2017 23:31:01
Peter you know that all Rangers want is a winning team. I agree that 2 young players coming through each season is great but they need to play alongside established good players. Rangers don't have any.

26 May 2017 06:05:27
I don't think we are too bad at bringing young players through HOWEVER, we are very quick to get rid and other teams in Scotland pick up the nearly finished article FOR FREE!

Good post mate and spot on the issue is that there currently are no good established players in our team to help the youngsters. Barjonas in his limited appearances showed more than Halliday, Holt and Windass showed all season

26 May 2017 18:07:55
Holland cannot have that good an international team because they didn't even qualify for euros last year

27 May 2017 07:37:17
Yeah the national team is struggling just now but they have had some amazing teams in the last 40 years and have been a force in world football
