I actually think you are only scratching the surfae on our young talent there, and if any don't live up to expectations there will be more young players coming through by the time we know that. We will be able to cherry pick for specific areas and be a lot fussier over the style of players we recruit. I'm not talking price wise or anything like that although money would clearly stretch further. But for instance Assaidi seems perfect in terms of skill set and attitude and cost pennies, Downing cost a lot and seems to not fit in terms of skill set or attitude. One in January and 2 in the summer (not including Sahin if a deal can be reached) would be my guess and Downing and Carroll being moved on next summer. Anyway getting off topic now. Who was your top 5 performers for the game? Mine were Sahin, Assaidi, Pacheco, Suso and Henderson.Essentially we can now be in a postion where we can 'cherry pick' certain players at certain postions to help push us over to the next level. That is if Sterling, Suso, Pacheco, Shelvey, Wisdom, Robinson, Yesil, Coates etc. continue to get games and get better. I have doubt in that being the case.
