United - Ferguson Trusts in Youth!

United - Ferguson Trusts in Youth!

Over in the USA, having seen off the challenge of the MLS All-Stars, quite convincingly, Sir Alex Ferguson has offered us a glimpse into the future of Manchester United.

During a long interview, published in the tabloids this morning, Sir Alex commented on the youngsters being given their chance at Old Trafford.

Now the comments could be construed on two ways!

Firstly they are a sign that Sir Alex feels he has a group of youngsters that can deliver a golden tomorrow or if you`re a delusional Manchester City fan, an indication that the cash cow has been bled dry.

Personally, having seen these youngsters perform, I`d say it`s the former.

Before we digress though, this is what Sir Alex had to say,

"I`ve got probably 12 players all under 21, which is a fantastic average age, and the future should be pretty secure with them."

"Over the years we`ve bought players for quite high amounts like, Berbatov, Ferdinand, Veron and Rooney. But we try to equate how we`re going to get the proper value before we do it."

"When I see some of the values now, and you`re talking about players at £40 million or £30-odd million, we have to assess our own players first."

"We take a quite good view of it now and say let`s look at our own young players."

"Have they got the ability? How much can we trust them? Do we see a top player in a young player?"

"And we`re not bad, you know. There are some good young players who have come through our system."

"They understand the club, they`re loyal to the club, and we can build on that"


It certainly looks to me as if we`ll be seeing a fair few of those youngsters in our shirt next season, if not as starters but substitutes coming on to try and make an impact!

Quite an exciting prospect. Nice to see we're going to attempt what Barcelona have done so well.

You've no choice but to put your faith in youth like Scholes, Giggs, Van der Saar, Owen etc because you are broke and can't afford anything. Les prawns in the sandwiches this season as well.

Just cos you get the da silva twins,nani,anderson & ronaldo at a young age doesnt mean you've necessarily blooded them.

Is he wrong Chelsea24/7? Fair enough you are starting to introduce your academy but your lot weren't to keen to do that in previous years. Also I think its fair to say we have blooded them, put them through their strides in the PL is surely a big part of development.

So I guess all the reds I speak to who believe (to mix a metaphor) that the cash cow has been bled dry are delusional too then.
