    arsenal youth-who will make it into the first team?

    problems with kids is you just never know who is going to take that massive leap from being a talent to being a real player with quality some don't start out as bright prospects you let them go then later regret ...U pin hopes on a genuine talent and he can't take the expectation and withers away.....

    It is interesting watching yesterdays match 7 of Barcas players came through their youth system Valdes Puyol Iniesta Xavi Maessi Pique Busquets so it really does work...infact I think it is phenomenal to have 7 players from ur academy....

    Yes Barca does splash the cash to get real quality in imagine if they had to buy all those players above at the going rate .....

    A club like arsenal would not be able to compete...yes I know this sounds like a sing song for AW but for me its just a reality check..... growing ur own is the key...then you can splash out on real talents like Arshavin or a Ribery etc ...that is the only way we really will be able to compete till we pay our debts....
