Young Players - U23's, U18's

Shite that. Regardless of whether he’s frustrated about being third choice, he’s only 16. Looks a huge talent so hopefully we can sort his head out.

Well he's not to blame, he's only 16 years of age.

Presumably an agent telling the family to take a slightly bigger wage at another club now? He's not going to be any closer to the first team at any other big premier league club.

Another point of contention could be some agents are starting to see the Everton youth system is cack and he's just as likely to be 26 and spending season long loans at various championship clubs. Might actually be the kick up the arse we need?

Thats shite. He'll not get any gametime if he goes to Arsenal or Man Utd either.
Would understand if he goes to Tranmere or something and plays 40 games next season but he'll have his agent promising him Barcelona first team.

Arsenal have just signed some young LB themselves for decent money. If you want a move thats fine, our youth development has been dogshit for the last 5 years but not turning up is silly isn't it.

Looks like Arsenal are favourites. It’s obviously not about first team minutes if that’s the case, as they’ve just tied down Tierney and signed Tavares

There's been huge question marks over the Youth Setup for a while.

I am really not that interested in whether they win cups etc - the Youth Setup is about getting players into the first team, nothing more, nothing less.

Who was the last player to get into the First Team consistently from there? Tom Davies? Thats fucking shite that.

David Unsworth clearly isnt doing his job. We hear all kinds about how good x, y and z are yet they never make that step up to the first team. Is it down to the First Team Manager simply not using them? Or is it that the system below the first team isnt fit for purpose?

Just as well Rhino has just been given a fancy new title because of #EvertonDNA

The lad made his first team debut at 16 and there were noises then that he was off. It's clearly about making as much money as possible right now.
As much of a concern that the academy might be right now, that's not the issue here.

Will be interesting to see if he goes to somewhere to play or whether its a bigger club for more money. No point moaning about game time and then go and sign for a United or someone like that where he wont play for years if ever in the first team
