Beckham, Scholes, and Giggs were contributing when they were the same age as these lads.
No they were not, Beckham didn't make the first team untill he was 22/3.
Only Giggs came in as a teenager and performing at a world class club when your a teenage in an exception to the rule.
I would love to see Arsenal without, Cole, Campbell, Lauren, Pires, Ljungberg, Henry, Reyes (first choice) and Cygan.
Chelsea doesn't count, as they have a bottom less pit of money so squad limit and wage structure doesn't count.
still take out, Del Horno, Terry, Ferrer, Makelele, Robben, Duff, Crespo, and they won't find it easy either.
Something has been amiss now for 3 years, since the whole Beckham debacle. The formula is not working.
like I said, there is a reason why the current players are reserves.
they are not as good as the first choice.
what were the results like when Heinze, Keane, Giggs, were fit? they are 3 leaders there. They would improve any team in the world.
bloody hell, a stiker is playing as a make shit defensive midfield player.
and the youth players are called into the first team, add to that 9 very talented players are out on loan playing very well at championship clubs)
really what do you expect them to do? play in the youth team one min then step up to play just like one of the best left backs in the world like Heinze the next?
play againts Sheffield Szerda in the youth cup one week then play just like the current England right back the next????
or a striker to become the best defensive midfield player over night??
Mendieta once cost nearly 30 Million quid, of course he is gonna have the beating of these players.
the only thing wrong is injurys and not having a budget the same a Chelsea's.
did you also know that Fergie told Kenyon to buy Robben and Cech while he was at United? then he went to buy them for Chelsea?
also Man Utd went in for Makelele, but whatever they offered Chelsea could always add a Million more.
