What improvement and what benefits do you expect to see?

Youth football is dominated by 2 clubs in this country. The FA Youth cup, is it 4 years in a row it have been an Man City Vs Chelsea final?

2010-11 was the last year Chelsea did not make the final.

Last 3 years the 2 clubs have dominated the U18 league as well even though some of their eligible players will play up in the U23s. However look at how many players make it from those squad now? They have the very best youngsters from across the globe usually and even they struggle to get them through at PL level.

Pep only have 6 players on his bench because he didn't have anyone else! It was a ridiculous comment but shows how far off he thinks you youth players at City (who have many of the best) are from PL football.
