NewCorkSethHoundNewCorkSeth So, should we be selling and looking to use Holsgrove, Odimayo, Burley, House, Holmes, Smith, East, Watson, Osho, Southwood, CBC et al?
Because its easy to say in hindsight we should have used all those academy players.
We've used the academy lads fairly well this year. But absolutely we should be using Olise, McIntyre, Southwood, Andresson and possibly Osho. Most of the others aren't up to it from what I've seen (CBC and Holsgrove looked decent tbf), but then you keep an eye on Nevers, Dorsett etc
I agree we have done well this season with utlising our academy. Largely helped by Olise being a star. But my point in large was its easy to say a deal is bad 2 years down the line. How will we know who will become the next big regret? I mean, Watson isnt highly rated. If he goes on to succeed how many on here will say "we should have used him instead of buy xyz"
well we don't but you'd hope the coaching staff and scouts would have a fair idea
