These youngsters

Recommended Posts

taken on board and on the payroll during the last two seasons.

Some expense has been involved and some wages have been involved .. although partially paid by their original club when lent back.

I am thinking:

Connor McGrandles

Louis Thompson

Ben Godfrey

Ebou Adams

James Maddison

and now we have Aaron Tshibola @ a reported £2m.

These youngsters join the Club without exception with a fabulous write up and with promised exciting potential.

How soon will this quite expensive policy produce players capable of threatening the first team?

Will it be this coming season?

Is it money well spent or misspent?

There has been quite some excitement built around this bunch. Will we ever see any of them in the yellow as first choice on the team sheet?

As a Premier League club their involvement was obviously distant. Now we are in the Chumps who has a chance of making that important breakthrough?

This has been a well defined policy by the Club since the days of Neil Adams. Will it reap rewards?

Surely most of these signings are seen as a way to make a little money from loan fees and such.

If they happen to get to the first team then it''s a very nice bonus.

May be, but when we purchase them a big incentive has to be an increase in wages.

When they are lent back we would surely then have to make up the difference between their contractual salary with us and what they were getting before our involvement.

I think that the main aim of these signings is for future first team recognition, but nothing has happened as yet.

Perhaps they are too young and expectations of them are premature, but they are all older than Marcus Rashford and he plays for England, not a Championship side.

You''ve only got to look at the dozens and dozens of players Chelsea sign and loan out to know what the score is.

Re Chelsea. Premier league teams need to submit a retained list of players at the end of each season. Chelsea retained....................... 82 players!

Speculate to accumulate? Would you rather have the money outlaid on these kind of players or mediocre journeymen from the lower reaches of minor European leagues?

Johnny could only sing one note
And the note he sang was this
Ahh

Poor Johnny one note sang out with gusto
And just overlorded the place
Poor Johnny one note, yelled willy nilly
Until he was blue in the face
For holding one note was his ace

Couldn''t hear the brass
Couldn''t hear the drum
He was in a class, by himself.
