    SCF08 got a reaction from Sigma78 in The Lensky Project   
    A documentary about Jacob Lensky that aired in Holland last weekend. I'm not sure if you guys can watch this or whether it's blocked but it's pretty fascinating to see and hear about his career and issues. I'll try and check later if it gets on Youtube. It wasn't available there yet.

    SCF08 got a reaction from Obinna in Alphonso Davies   
    Funny that you mention Lingard and regard him as youth. He's 25 years old and by no means a youth player. You just only learned about him because of Louis van Gaal giving a player like him a shot and him proving himself. If Mourinho was at United 3 years ago Lingard would've now been at West Brom or something.
    Even now both Lingard and Rashford are only getting 50% starts at United. Man United also have Tahith Chong in their academy who's very similar in terms of playing style/age to Davies and arguably better imo. Hasn't even been on the bench for United first team once.
    Davies needs to go to a team where he can stay for a few years and get game time. Going to United would mean going out on loan to several clubs in several countries and it just doesn't help him. Davies would have a hard time already cracking into the PSV team with Lozano and Bergwijn up front. At least he would know that he gets sub appearances and starts in the cup and they'll trust him in the future when either Bergwijn or Lozano leaves. At United they'll just pay 50 million for a new left winger instead of giving a youth player a chance because they don't have to take that "risk".

    Yes. Many players debuted in the National Team before making their debut at club level. Mascherano never played for River Plate first team before his first cap I believe. And there are many more examples as well. I also think the MLS has one of the worst records in giving playing time to youngsters. It's just a cultural thing in North America. Why do you think all top American prospects escape to Germany? Many 17 year olds are already playing for top Bundesliga clubs. They recognize quality and have faith in their players and give them opportunities to develop which will benefit the club later on. 
    Also, who just signed for Barcelona? Tabla or Ricketts? The difference in quality was always clear as day. If Tabla chooses Ivory Coast the CSA has themselves to blame.

    SCF08 got a reaction from MtlMario in Ballou Tabla   
    Exactly the lack of faith and trust I was talking about. Tabla was already superior to many of the players called up. Having 0 professional minutes or 10.000 is irrelevant. It's all about quality. On the other hand it's also the CSA's job to secure talent. Just look what the US did with Jonathan Gonzalez. Showed him no love and trust and he's going to play for Mexico. 
    If I was Tabla or Tomori I would also opt for another country if players like Ricketts and Jakovic are called ahead of them.
