I think you'd agree that what is most important is that these younger players be brought up in the same “system” that we're trying to employ as a club. That's one of the most important things I goin from that docu-series on Man City, that from the top down they were focusing on the youth set up and instilling real football into those players.
Do you have any insight as to how that's being done at this early stage? I can only imagine those players must have been completely shielded from Allardyce.

There was a lot of work done over the summer. As to exactly what I dont know. Its been 3 years now since my cousin played against our youth sides so Im well out of the loop these days.

Especially when it comes to defense. Very interesting to read in the archive about how those Kendall glory years using zonal marking as a staple. As Ratcliffe pointed out, it took a little time to learn but it was incredibly successful. We should be having all our youth teams using a similar system. It will only benefit them and us.

Last night (someone correct me on this if Im wrong) the line up looked like it was a 4-3-3, which would be the same as the first team. (Sambou, Hornby and Broadhead up front)
Is it a sign that we are getting the teams playing the same systems?

He's been criticised in the past for being too one-footed (ie, his left), but that still makes him a bit of a rarity. Future back-up for Digne?

The zonal marking would also be better understood although I believe there needs to be a fusion with 5 zones identified and the rest man marking.
