We keep getting told these kids are not good enough but evidence is there that some are making it, im not saying Coxe was danny Alves but would’ve been a better option than bacuna, even Bellers said they simply wasn’t willing to give kids a chanceWhat makes you think they haven't? There has to be clubs interested in taking them on loan. Christ, nobody was interested in Coxe on oan or as a free agent apart from one non-league club. Sion Spence, you'd swear was better than Rambo - loaned to Barry, from what I've heard didn't really stand out. He then leaves us, goes to Palace so the inevitable "Cardiff error" claims come up -ignoring Palace finished below us last season at that level so they hardly have a better Academy squad.
Fans and local media have hyped kids up as being STARS when the reality is they are nowhere near as good as the hype. Players released finally might achieve something 6, 7, 8 years later? "Club ruined them".
That doesn't mean we don't miss out. Ajayi, for example - we should've kept him but even then he came from Arsenal academy.
