YOUTH IS THE ANSWER?
Of the four teams taking part here is a comparison of how many of their
squads were products of their respective youth systems:-
BARCELONA - 7 out of 24
MANCHESTER UNITED - 12 out of 24
PARMA - 1 out of 29
AJAX - 9 out of 29
How many would we have in squads of that size?
Needless to say smartass Vanderhogg came up with the answer :-
First team squad of 29 - I reckon about 10 (11 if you include Craig
Non-youth players (assuming all fit):
Tore Andre Flo
Ronald de Boer
And one other - maybe Peter Leven.
Only my opinion though.
