NewCorkSethOld Man AndrewsSnowflake Royal Yeah... the age factor is certainly relevant though. And if your only measure of success is PL regular then you might as well close the academy because very few will achieve that.
The point of the academy is to produce players who can play for our first team who we can then sell on for a huge amount of money. On the evidence we have seen Danny Loader isn't good enough for the first team.
Really think he should have gone out on loan to a League 1 side this season, played week in and week out.
Look OMA, the future might prove you correct but so many players dont develop until their mid 20s. He is just 19 and is burdened with a weight if expectation. His apps have mostly been cameos.
Absolutely hope I am wrong about him btw, would love him to go on to have a great career. Based on what I have seen of him he will never be capable of playing any higher than he is now.
