AlwaysBeClosing Posted July 26, 2011 Share Posted July 26, 2011 How many of these were 'bought in'? You can't say that Wenger hasn't developed through the youth system apart from Jack and say that we 'bought' Cesc and then try to claim that Man Utd have developed Smalling, Jones et al and Shelvey et al at Liverpool. Realistically how many young players are coming out of those clubs (aside from Barcelona) who are good enough for a top PL team? ManU had a bonanza of young talent come through in the 90's and West Ham used to be well known for their youth development but now? Cleverley, Morrison, De Laet, Welbeck, Ronaldo, Gibson, Evans (x2), Rafael & Fabio, Pogba, Obertan, Macheda, Tunnicliffe.. there's a lot through and coming through that wouldn't look out of place in the top ten, if not the top five.
