If you're not easing these boys into an underperforming side,then what has been the point of the academy system,short of fully utilising our world class facility, which could possibly be an executive housing estate in three years time,if we go down.

Depends whether the idea is to still try and stay up or not I guess. A bit like the coaches, having too many inexperienced ones all at the same time is very high risk. I prefer a system that has a churn philosophy where as older players move on one by one, you bring up fresh ones, one by one. Continuity is essential if you don't want to be constantly rebuilding from the ground up.

If we were three games from the end of season and we were all but done I might go for the miracle play but not at the moment.
