Hearing a lot of names being touted on here which is something I don't do because SG boss and he succeeds or fails on his decisions. let's wait and see but 20m spend pie in sky. Of all names mentioned none from youth system. Is it void?

Our youth system was neglected for many years so it is not too surprising that there are not many at the right age coming through. That said, there are a number of excellent looking young prospects albeit that they are unlikely to be ready for challenging for the league next season. Given some of the poor signings, not all on free transfers, that we have seen over the past three or four seasons it is not too surprising that we have struggled to field a quality side especially in the second half of the season when a quality squad is fundamental. Encouragingly, there are a lot of good quality players available in England and across Europe that are at end of contract and we have to assume that our new Director of Football will already have identified a significant number that would make a difference and are of the correct calibre, (i. e., have a winning mentality and are better leaders than we currently have) . All our quality Rangers teams, historically, were stacked full of players that were winners and would give 100% for the jersey. That is what we need to get back to!

He certainly failed in his decisions since his appointment Millerb.

And please no comments about look where he got us in europe etc, he got us nothing no trophys no nothing.

He has one more chance next season, and that's from me a Stevie fan club member.

Our youth system is just starting to bring through some talent who will be ready in the next year or 2. Unfortunately our youth system was neglected for years.

I believe our system has never been better organized so let's hope some come to fruition and hope they stay for a few years at least.

How many youths making it per year would be a success?

Depends what you mean by 'making it' DEEB. If you mean lads who will come into the team and play for us for years, command a large transfer fee and become international players, like a Hutton, then one every two or three years would be a success. If you mean a Barry Ferguson then one every six or seven years would be terrific. If you mean a boy who would go on to play at some level somewhere else then you could have three or four in a year. Finding raw talent isn't incredibly difficult, moulding it and fine tuning it to our level is. It takes years and so far this current coaching regime has had just two years, so it wouldn't be disheartening to wait another year or two to see the fruits of their work.

Berkshireblue, this c.v. has been a headache and then some, but it must be ross wilsons dream, so many players out of contract, looking for new clubs, a d.o.f., could do well, mate,
