Interesting fact : City have not developed an established first-team player from the UK since Micah Richards’ breakthrough in 2005

I think this dispels the myth from the City posters that the Academy is still quite young  :whistling:

 

Allen states he always believed it would take a decade to produce a consistent supply of first-team footballers. Next year is his 10th as the academy director and he says: “We’re right on [for] that. It takes 10 years to build something solid that’s just not the odd player. It’s a production line of quality – you won’t have 11 players every year but there will be some form of production line that you could pick one from that group, and two from there, and three from that group. I’ve got to be ready for when the manger says ‘I need one’. That’s my challenge – to say ‘there’s one’, and he compares favourably’”

I'll be cheering City on Peter, although i think your attack will have better a chance without Zlatan. Bastad blessing in disguise that injury.

We did the same last season, and fell at the final hurdle.

 

We'd be home and hosed now if we hadn't have been so ravaged by injury, or maybe not sold so many players or maybe bought more of them. We were flying and yet we might still crash spectacularly.

 

I know you've had injuries but you defo have more quality in depth.

Stop going on about injuries Bobby,  every team gets them, it's part and parcel.

I'm not saying it isn't, but we've had Mane, Llallana, Hendo, Coutinho, Sturridge out at a critical time and it screwed us. Our centre back paring have played 14 games together this season, we've lost young lads like Ojo, Grujic for the whole season. We had a bench that had started 73 first team games combined last week and 58 of them where Moreno.

 

It might be pat of the game, but if you don't have a big squad and quality in depth it will screw you and it did screw us. We should have not sold on so many players, or we should have bought more. That was my point.
