Gav Posted January 26, 2011 Share Posted January 26, 2011 I’m not really sure if anyone has touched on this yet, but it seems to me that we’re looking at the Arsenal model and trying to follow suit under Kean and Venkys. The days of spending millions of pounds on average players is reaching saturation point for me, and with the links to young players from around the globe, It seems to me we’re looking at building the club from the academy up. Whilst these young recruits could be nothing more than agent hype, it’s a refreshing approach, and one that really gets me excited for the future. Will we ever be as good as Arsenal? Well I doubt it because despite the media having us believe different, they do pay lots of money for young players, Eduardo being one off the top of my head that was bought for millions and put in the youth team. But even if we’re half as good as Arsenal, it’s a darn site better than what we’ve seen at Ewood for many years now, and I for one welcome the approach, and have the feel good factor back for the first time in many a year.
