We moved away from ‘the youth project’ for several reasons. Firstly young players suddenly started going for near as much as established talent. Secondly like you say, we waited for them to reach their peaks and when they did they all left. Thirdly we have a bit more money to buy starters now.
You’ve also missed a few, as we try to bring them in for peanuts, so there’s: Bellerin, Toral, Sanogo, Zelalem, Holding, Adelaide, Fortune, Mallen, Crowley, Joel Campbell, Eisfeld, Nwakali, Dragomir. People will laugh at names like Sanogo but he outscored Morata at the under 23 Euros. Eisfeld was more highly regarded than Gotze in Dortmund’s youth set up. Toral looked more talented than Bellerin to me. Some make it some don’t but in the youth era maybe more would of got chances. Nelson is probably the next to break through.
