The academy has been a laughing stock for years. I know as I pulled my boy out. The arrogance of the coaches is unbelievable. They still prefer the old saying he's not big enough. To be honest the coaching was shocking, they spent more time playing on their phones and talking amongst themselves. To pull my boy out broke my heart but it had to be done. City are light years ahead with their approach and have been nicking utd's best kids for years now. Every parent at City gets expenses where as at utd only 1 or 2 get it. A massive overhaul is needed and new coaches brought in. Most of the coaches are nothing more than glorified pe teachers.

Hi Blackpool Red,

Cheers for the info, it's sounds very unprofessional. It would be great to hear any other people's experiences.

Not a unique experience at all Blackpool Red. But when you're hiring coaches for as little as £20,000 per year, you're lucky to get PE teacher quality.

Considering the cost to fix this would be less than one decent sized transfer fee, this sounds crazy. Perhaps pulling out of a £32.5m transfer of an unproven Anderson from Lazio might be re-invested in the academy. Problem solved? Let's be fair, we have still produced some half decent players over the years and I only see one Nigerian youngster in City's first team. I have no wish for our club to be like them and never will.

The redevelopment of City's academy began in 2010, and they were building from scratch. Since then they've built a massive amount of new state of the art facilities, brought in key figures from Barca's youth setup, offered the highest wages in the country to attract the best coaches, and start developing direct links with hundreds of schools in the greater Manchester area. In the last five years they have invested close to £200m directly in their academy and continue to spend more per year on their academy than any other club in the country.

This isn't some look how great things are at City and how crap we are thing. Simple fact is that City are running their academy in the right way. The trickle of young players is starting, but the next five-ten years will be a better measure of their academy's success. In all honesty, we are embarrassingly behind City in this area.

Some would rather close their eyes and ears to it, pretending we are so much better in youth development. The impact of what City have done will take 5 to 10 years to show. Meanwhile our fans trot out a generational message that we shouldn't learn from them, that is basic arrogance and United have got to do a lot of work to catch up, we have years of catching up to do.

Haven't posted for a while but I got slated last year when I said di Maria would be a flop & we should of gone for Reus.I can't belive we stumped up nearly 60 million for him, ship him out swap even for a loss.Would still rather go for Reus more than pedro

My number one target would be Griezmann, then Reus and then Pedro.

2.) 23 Jul 2015 13:18:04
BR. I agree with you on ADM, I thought he was going to be fantastic at United, but his attitude is terrible and United should get rid of him immediately. If PSG are stupid enough to pay £45m for him, then let him go. Rues or Greizman will by my choices ahead of Pedro (assuming we can't get Bale or CR7)

3.) 23 Jul 2015 13:39:19
I agree with people's suggestions for replacements however I would include Kevin De Bruyne in that list. Will give us one up on our noisy neighbours also 😀 win win.

Why do people say Pochettino is unattainable. Nobody is unattainable if you throw enough money around. Are you honestly telling me the spuds who have won nowt for years are bigger than man utd.

Getting sick of Mourinho. Is spending a kings ransom not enough. Seems to me he has lost his touch. Its been a disaster since Fergie left. Terrible managers with poor signingsI don’t know what the answer is. i'm sick of dull boring football.

Not been on for a long time but totally agree with beast. A kings ransom has been spent and we are no further forward. Too many fans now accept mediocrity. The play is too slow with too many average players.
