Latest news from Everton Football Clubwww.evertonfc.com
I always regard gaining England honours as a mark of success as a player, and in the near 30 years of the PL era, our academy graduates have earned just 160 England caps. If you strip out Rooney and Barkley, that number falls to 7. In total we've had 6 academy players in 30 years go on to earn an England cap. Our academy is just a bit rubbish.
They are young too early to judge ...,.unlike the oldies on top money we are stuck with ATM......Sig Tosun & Bolassie plus Besic etc etc we have to drain the swamp ...,..and stop siigning run of the mill on long lucrative contracts DOF started this system........So if they're so good Joe, why are they languishing in the lower leagues when they leave us?
Against what odds?Yes the guy who wins trophies...... against the odds .....
Chelsea had a transfer ban !ast season the yougsters that came in they had a better last season then than so far buying expensive players ......Against what odds?
U23 football is terrible, nobody takes it seriously.
Without googling, who won the U23 title last year? I bet you don't know, cos nobody cares till we win it.
All the other teams best players are out on loan, I mean we are literally playing 28 year old Matty Pennington in our "u23" side.
That's because they've got good players Joe. In 1 season 5 Chelsea youngsters earned England caps (27 of them in total), which is practically what our entire academy has produced in 30 years.Chelsea had a transfer ban !ast season the yougsters that came in they had a better last season then than so far buying expensive players ......
