The Spanish league (as much as everybody hates to admit it) has produced some of the best young talents in world football. They have magnificent youth facilities that breed game changers... But the real secret to their success is through the 'B team' system (Barcelona more so than Real - Real seem to sell their best youth *cough* Mata). The BPL finally needs to integrate this system to avoid falling further behind to the Bundesliga and Liga BBVA.
Now instead of just using our youth academy players, I have decided to suggest an Arsenal-ish way of dealing with this. We buy youth (Capped at £7mil buys) as well as use our academy players to form a championship team. The players spend two years in the academy and can then be sold (Value usually at least doubles due to youth hype) or can be put in the starting team. This reduces our need for Roman to pump in cash yearly and improves our reputation. This would be my team including realistic prices for each player.
Maksym Koval (£4mil)
Matej Delac (Current)
NIcola Leali (£4.5mil)
Van Aanholt (Current)
Tomas Kalas (Current)
Kurt Zouma (£5mil)
Milos Veljkovic (£3.5mil)
Central Midfielders (CDM + CAM included)
Nathaniel Chalobah (C) (Current)
Oriel Romeu (Current)
Verrati (£7mil + An old player)
Josh Mceachran (Current)
Thorgan Hazard (Current)
TOTAL: £7mil + Old Player (Maybe Essien to fill the gap)
Viktor Fischer (£5mil)
Lucas Piazon (Current)
Luc Castaignos (£3mil)
Islam Feruz (Current)
GRAND TOTAL: £50mil
So we could gather what would be the finest team of pure youth in the world for the same price that we paid for Torres..... It's a no brainer really
I understand that it would take a lot to get some of these players into playing championship football but a bit of money and the promise of first team football could make every single one of these transfers possible...
Through this, we could feed the first team with the finest whilst selling the ones that we have no need for/sell for a lot.
Good income + First team players with little fee=WIN
PLEASE FA, JUST PLEASE LET US HAVE A B TEAM IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP
