Swansea City dominated the latest South Wales derby, crushing Cardiff City 5-1 at home in an under-23 fixture. The Swans powered into a three-goal lead by half-time and maintained their grip to win the Professional Development League clash.
Leckwith Mole's tweet I'd tend to only half agree with; Jacks put money into Academy to develop players to sell on - even then their best players developed from youth came before their Academy.
Dan James? Bought from Hull at 16. Oli McBurnie? Brought into Academy,
Allen et al? Pre-Academy. Connor Roberts? Eh, first teamer sure but hit and miss from what I've watched. Plenty of their youth are getting games due to their squad being gutted by their non-investing owners.
Do we need to improve? Sure. Likes of Rambo didn't come from Academy setup mind.
