Big Stars where ?
Fact is that is a player hasn't developed enough to produce the required standard under pressure in our senior squad by the time he has reached a certain age then he has to be moved on to give the next guy behind him a chance .
There is no shortage of talented kids & they have to be sifted through , it has always been that way & it always will be that way .
If a player who we release as a 21 year old goes on to win over 77 international caps , score over 17 international goals & Captain his Country at a World Cup , win the Champions League , FA , League cup , UEFA Cup , Super Cup , numerous PFA & Football Writers Player of the year awards & finish in the top ten of both the Ballon D'or & FIFA World Player of the year like Gerrard has then I will think about Dalle Vale , Riche Partridge , Stephen Wright or whoever else we released that you think is better .
Some people just cant see a priest on a mountain of sugar !
Sacre Bleu !
Excellent post Johny, that made me laugh!
Couldnt agree more though, you win some and you lose some, Otsemobor, Le Tallec, Sinama, Potter, Barragan were all meant to have been mistakes of ours to slip through, what are they doing now? Not a lot.

Even in the unlikely event they did achieve at another club anything close to those we have kept the fact remains if you arent up to standard by a certain age compared to those around you you have to be moved on .
Its possible some day a slow developer like Peter Beardsley or David Platt both of whom Man Ure rejected will maybe leave us ruing the decision but it will be the exception to the rule .
Results are king & if you cant contribute to the results when your chance arises then you have to go , there is no other way .
