Moderation Lead K-Hod Posted November 30, 2010 Moderation Lead Share Posted November 30, 2010 Youth systems with worldwide scouting networks of the quality of Barcelona's cost millions to finance, money that our club does not have. Doesn't matter whether you develop your own players ot buy them - and running youth systems is often more expensive than buying cheap players from abroad - holding up Barcelona as a shining example of how football should be played and then comparing them with Rovers and the meagre resources at our disposal, is a nonsense. I wasn't really making that comparison, merely stating that someone stating they had spent big can only have been referring to RM. Messi was poached from Argentina at a young age, but all the other examples I mentioned were from Spain. Granted, their system is a lot better and more effective than ours purely down to financial reasons and the budget they throw at it, but still- it is good to see a team populated by academy graduates that is as good as they are!
