You canít actually be happy with how the academy has been ran over the past few years, surely? Iím sure youíve heard about the bang average facilities theyíve had to contend with at Goals? Compare them to the facilities of Brighton say - thereís a reason why Wan-Bissaka is the first League debutant since Kyle Da Silva.

It sounds like we have a couple of good age groups coming through now, with Richard Shaw & Paddy McCarthy doing really good jobs. But there is no doubt that the academy has been overlooked at the expense of throwing everything at Prem survival - which frustrates me, as itís very short-term. Even Jordan figured out that having a good academy is vital - hence why we had Moses, Clyne & Wilf to name but a few.
