'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Fergie on Youth!

Enjoying the pre-season tour of North America, Sir Alex Ferguson touched on a poignant point in an interview given to the media.

Sir Alex, perfectly aware that the production line that brought though such prodigious talent as David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Phil and Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, needs to start producing the goods again.

There`s every chance that come twelve months time, every single one of those players will have retired from playing (apart form Beckham who reckons he`ll go on forever).

But Sir Alex is certain that the next crop of youngsters are coming through and that, handled correctly, they will be just as productive when he remarks,

"At the moment we have a collection of young players who have been growing up at the club for the last few years like Jonny Evans, Danny Welbeck, Darren Gibson and Federico Macheda."

"These young players are developing well."

"Some players are coming through like young Oliver Gill and young Corry, Jonny Evans` brother. So we`ve a fine collection of young players who, if you don`t give an opportunity to, are going to stagnate and move to other clubs who`ll get the benefit of the work we`ve done with them."


Is there a hint of a suggestion that some of those mentioned could soon be bloodied in the first team?

what chance the Evans brothers emulating the Neville brothers?

This is what I personally wanted to hear, we have mroe than enough talent in the youth so why spend 25 mil on and attacking mid when there may be one close to home.

Looks like you won't have any option but to blood the youngsters next season, so I can understand why so many reds are pinning their hopes on them. You'd better hope you're not clutching at straws, as the implications of the academy players not making the grade are pretty serious for the balance sheet.

There's no doubting there is a lot of talent in our current academy. I would much rather see those lads make it then spend 30-40 million on some player. It would be a lot more satisfying even if it meant us going through a semi-dry patch of us not winning any major honours.
