Always found it a bit odd that they got Sbragia back in charge.

Putting two and two together to make five, and looking at the reviews of the players in each age category, I think that perhaps the Ynder 23s are a legacy of the much-derided youth structures of a few years ago; now there’s been a turnaround in investment, facilities, overseas recruitment and coaching focus, the younger teams are looking more promising - so should start feeding through to the senior teams in a few years.

We’re still behind City in these contexts but at least we’ve turned it around and are once more catching up.

Its a lot to do with the changes of the team. A lot of u18 players playing or getting involved in senior trams such as u21 and u23.

Look at examples of mctominay, rashford, gomes . If they played consistently for u23s then they will be in a much higher position in the table.

Singh there is a lot right in what you say. We have suffered due to the attention that has had to be focused on the first team. Managers post Fergie have even to this day had to focus on trying to get the club back to the elite level it was at. There hasn't been a consistent policy to integrate the youth and lay down a playing style which goes from the youngest players right through to the first team. This is slowly being addressed now. Players like Jesse and Marcus have been fast tracked into the first team leaving the U23 s and others light on quality. There is one additional important factor. City have developed a wonderful strategy over the past five or six years to attract the best young players from worldwide. They have now put themselves in pole position in Manchester for prospective talent. Chelsea in the South have done likewise but Chelsea have no track record for promoting their youth and we can see how so many of their youth academy ultimately move to other clubs. Jose has to buy established stars at the moment but I do think once we are really competitive he will focus more on the u23s and below.

Totally agree with that Hendon red but i am yet to be convinced by City's policy of bringing youth through.

They recently let go a very promising player in Sancho who i believe has the same amount of talent as Gomes for us but we managed to convince Gomes to stay and follow examples of Rashford and co.
