Question for U23 expert Spanish and anyone else.

I wonder which (if any ) of our current youth set up will actually make it and come through to be regulars in the first team?

Geldherdt? Shackleton? (He has not made it ( yet) for me.

Its been many years now since our last DEFINITIVE youth success KP ( and possibly Vieira ) broke into the first team on a regular/ permanent basis.

In the past 60s,70s 80s and 90s we have had soo many youth players come through successfully to play regularly in the first team

but it appears to be happening less and less frequently now.

Foreign owners, Foreign coaches, Foreign players it's going to happen less and less especially with diversity rammed down your throats 24/ 7.

Good point kly 👍.

Baz I am expecting Drameh, Hosannah, Huggins, McCalmont, McCarron, McKinstry, Gelherdt, Greenwood, Edmondson and Dean to feature for the first team with some minutes before the end of 2021. Who makes it and takes their opportunity difficult to predict as many factors involved. I still maintain it was a mistake to permit Corberan's departure.

Yes kly very good point.

I keep hearing that Bielsa is known for bringing through into the first team, developing and improving young players.

Bielsa has certainly improved KP hopefully he can do the same for the likes of MacAlmont and others.

Georgey that is a long list . of those which ones do you think will actually become a Leeds United first regular at some point?

I am going for Geldherdt and Drameh . possibly Huggins and MacAlmont

Completely agree letting Corberan go was regrettable. his influence is missed.

This is what I keep saying. Orta is hailed for his 'ones for the future' but the reality is that none whom he has signed so far has made an impact as yet.

Baz I'd say the brightest prospect is Gelhardt but anything can happen. Youth players can surprise and disappoint as they mature. Nearly a decade ago we had a lad billed as the next John Giles. He was released and after more than 2 years at his latest club still awaits his non-league debut for a popular seaside town in North Yorkshire.

Bloody hell george if even half those young guns make the match day squad Rad will save a bunch of cash. Here’s hoping.
