Looks like those games against European opposition are starting to pay off

Always felt English youths, those with English clubs, developed and matured faster than their Scottish counterparts.  Hopefully the European experience of playing more competitive matches will help our youngsters develop quicker.

Winning Development and Youth games is great but ultimately it comes down to how good the best 2 or 3 players are. In any team age group if we have 2/3 who we think can make first team we are doing well.

We could have an age group that wins most games where the team is strong but has no exceptional players.

Don't think we ever had a problem developing purely football talent, but we need to make them ready to wear that jersey in front of 50k. That in the past has been the problem, fingers crossed we can fix that. 

Ultimately it comes down to this. You can have all the positive stories you want about the academy set up but until you start having players starting for the 1st team in numbers it means nothing.
