What a rubbish post!!! have you seen any of the youngsters actually play? If not then what you have said is complete rubbish. And watching 5 min clips of them doesnt count as well. Im not saying that our youngsters are as good as Dos Santos and co but until we actually see them play we cant make a proper judgement yet.
All i can tell you is that Insua, as Paul said above, is a massive talent. He got a couple of games at the back end of last season and i watched him play in the U20 World Cup and i guarantee you he is the future LFC left back. Riise's days are numbered now and its only a matter of time that Insua makes the break through.
Then im not sure you've heard of Lucas yet, if you havent ill give you a small lesson - He was player of the year in Brazil last season. I dont care how shit you the Brazilian league is, to be named player of the year is a massive achievement which only great players like Kaka, Zico, Falcao, Romario have won before. This player will be better than Fabregas - Mark my words
And then we also have Dani Pacheco coming through. Im not sure if you read the quotes about him from the Barcelona youth coaches. They rated him on the same level as Bojan & Dos Santos and was together with them the most likely to break through.
Have a bit of patience, in time you will see progress with our youth setup. Wenger is at Arsenal 10 years, Rafa is here 4 years. Patience is virtue
Yes I have seen them play. Why is Insua a massive talent? Because he is relatively unknown and has received a lot of hype by a few Liverpool fans? Insua is a solid talent, he is a left back with reasonable size and decent technical qualities while not being overly quick. He's nowhere near as gifted a player as either Gael Clichy or Armand Traore, whom both have elite speed, and are fantastic dribblers and great at getting forward. Clichy is now pretty decent defensively, while Traore still has a ways to go, and will probably end up being a left winger. Insua could definitely become a better player than Traore, because you can never tell how well a young player will develop and whether they will reach their potential. But he isn't in the same bracket in terms of his potential. Insua is only a 'massive' talent to people that like to hype up anything Liverpool related. Insua is a very good talent, whom I also think will be better than Riise and likely our future left back should we not go after anyone better. But it's silly to overrate his ability because of that.
All the players I mentioned in that post were under 20 years of age. Therefore I didn't include Lucas and Babel on purpose. The fact that you actually think Lucas will be better than Fabregas puts you firmly in the category of supporter that will exaggerate and overhype anything LFC. Lucas could be a quality player no doubt, but he won't be 'better' than Fabregas. They are the same age, and Fabregas is light years ahead of him as a player. Maybe one day if he adapts to the Premier League he could be as good as Fabregas should Fabregas not improve his current level, but I doubt it. Fabregas will continue to improve as a player, while I don't think Lucas is as gifted in any case. That's not to say I don't think Lucas will be a really good player for us, because I do, I'm just unwilling to overhype someone just because they play for our team.
You have got no idea in regards to Dani Pacheco. Was nowhere near rated on the same level as Krkic or Dos Santos by anyone, the least of all Barca coaches. You are making things up now to prove a non-existant point. It's the same thing with Gerardo Bruna from Real Madrid. He was unheard of from anyone before we were linked with him, I know Madrid fans that follow the Castilla closely and know all the quality Madrid youth coming through including Esteban Granero, Miguel Torres and Manuel Jurado (whom has recently left for Atletico), whom had never heard of Bruna. All of a sudden he is Real Madrid's Messi, and the jewel of their youth. He might well be a very talented player, but it's a case where the hype is completely falsified. Alberto Buena would currently be Madrid's jewel in the youth crown, scored 10 goals in the under 19 youth championships a year back and got game time in their pre-season before being overtaken obviously by all the more established players. For the record Krkic and Dos Santos have always been far and away the best talents at Barca, with a few kids like Gai Assulin, Thiago and Jeffren Suarez not far behind. Dani Pacheco looks a gifted player, but he was never rated at the same level as any of those five, which speaks volumes for me about Barca's current youth system.
I agree with the last point. I'm not getting impatient, all I was doing was stating that we have a long way to go in response to people whom think all we are doing wrong is not giving our current youth a chance as though that will result in us having the kind of youngsters coming through that Arsenal and Barca have.
