I'm thinking these are perhaps still 'Schoolboys' and not 'Scholars' who have signed Scholarship Agreements with the Club?

I was watching a documentary on Feyenoord today. Interesting to see comments on them not producing the calibre they had in previous years. So double fold. Not producing the standard they want for the first team, but then not producing the standard they can sell on to make money.
Schalke suffered from being to focussed on making money from their academy in my opinion, so it should always be about striking a balance. But then, a lot of their young players let their contracts run down, so maybe just a feature of the modern game rather than the clubs' fault. We've just had it with Small.
When you have an academy of that standard, the hawks like Bayern are hovering early. They lost their very promising keeper Nubel on a free to Bayern and he didn't have a hope in chance of replacing Neuer (also a Schalke product).
Watching the Edinburgh Derby. I know its a different level of football, but Baningime is looking tidy and having a good game.
The Hibs' keeper has put in a fine performance.

Yesterday one of the players on the list Moise Kean cost Juventus the game against Napoli with a dreadful header in his own six yard box forcing the Juventus goalkeeper to make a save but couldnt prevent Napoli from forcing it home, a really bad mistake by Moise!!

Personally, and maybe I'm old fashioned as I approach 50, but I've never been a fan of forwards defending set pieces. Okay, I see the logic (height, good in the air etc), but they aren't defenders.
I'd rather have them on the half way line ready to react to the counter attack.

All the new Scholars are mixed into the full list you've put up.

Yeah, I caught a bit of Beni's performance, he's been doing well for Hearts this season. Maybe it's the permanent move that's helped.
It's curious that a number of ex players are also showing up well in the Championship now they are on permanent deals, Shayne Lavery, Josh Bowler, Dennis Adeniran. Yet none featured significantly when on loans.
I wonder if managers don't trust young loan layers or see any point in developing them. Currently we've got Gibson and Broadhead failing to start regularly on loan.

The loan system is sporadic, but we don't have another model.
This makes us circle back to the feeder club and B team concept.
And with the feeder club, I'd suggest linking with foreign teams to get our young players experience in other leagues.
If you think about it, both Watford (Udinese), Wolves (Portugal) and Brentford (Denmark), have used the principle to some degree. I don't think the latter were linked to one specific club in the same way Watford were, but the principle was similar.
We do it in the military (okay, I'm ex-Army now). They're called exchange assignments and coalitions to achieve mutual benefit.

His name is Mills so the possessive form is not to add an 's and make it Mills's but to just add the apostrophe.
We not only have the best site, but also the best written site.

It's now becoming a recruitment bargaining tool to agree future deals to get around financial rules.
Yes, we need to start the feeder club model, eg, Red Bull or Man City global feeder system but we won't until it's too late and then play catchup for a few decades.
As for who will make it... depends on our manager and what we need. But it will probably start with being 6ft, athletic, comfortable on the ball with a good range of passing. Most likely a defender or midfielder.

Although I prefer to see the apostrophe-s on names like Mills (and James) in the possessive form. When speaking, don't we add the second 's' sound? So it needs the apostrophe-s in written form, even with a following 's' sound: Mills's son; James's salary; Leeds's substitutes (although the last one does sound clumsy!).
But a little internet research show style guides vary on this. I'd like to blame the Yanks – they have a blanket rule for all words ending in -s, whether singular or plural, the possessive form is adding the apostrophe only. But we Brits have some horrible examples set in stone: St James' Park.
When it is a name ending in -s, it is singular, not plural, so there is no reason to treat it the same as a normal plural word that has had the s added: the boys' shoes. The worst one is not using 's with names ending in -ez: Rodriguez's salary – that absolutely has to have the apostrophe-s added.
But the rules, if they exist at all, are confusing and obviously of little interest to most people, so I'll stop there.

There's a new feature on the 2021-22 Academy Scholars at the Official Everton Website:
They have those numbers again on their shirts and the list of names below. But you gotta play the vid to get them to connect!
And the weird thing is these numbers don't seem to jive with the ones we saw last night, eg, 73 – is it Elijah Campbell or Harry Wright?
