slow growing trees and fast growing trees …

So Ruka N, one of our great young hopes, was axed by FC Twente before the WC.  Have a look out at forum land and the feeling you get is that most think he wasn’t ready yet. At 23.  Gonna try to get a German 2 div team contract.

How many younger players DAZZLED at the WC?  Ozil and Mueller are ready.  David Suarez is ready.  Alexi Sanchez is ready.  Keisuke Honda is ready.  Nagatomo is ready.  Pedro is ready.  All are younger or the same age as Ruka.

More and more good young players are coming through from many countries … why should Europe notice our players when ready players are available?

More and more comprehensive scouting systems mean that more players from more countries are coming onto the market.  And if our players aren’t ready, they will be left on the shelf.

Staying home till you are ready? Even that approach has problems – because if you are competing with another young player for a position, but they have 4 years experience in European competition, chances are the coach will choose the EXPERIENCED young player.
