    Staggering figures, would you let your kid go to Chelsea if he were good enough?

    At least they're getting competitive gametime somewhere. Got to be better than solely playing U21 matches. Plus, even if they don't make the grade at chelsea they will have a headstart over a mansfield youthteam player for example when it comes to finding a new club.

    The point has been missed, only ONE has made it through the academy in 15 years (that lump John Terry). It looks like they are signing up every promising youngster so nobody else can get them and bring them through.

    This is the very reason we've been so desperate to upgrade our academy set up. So we can do something very similar in our own catchment area. Is it fair? No. But if we start to bring through future stars, will we as fans really care, or would we applaud our board for it's forward thinking?
