Hi Ed02,

Hope all is well.

I know in the past you have been critical on our loaning out of players, and rightly so, but it does seem that we are sending more and more out.

Have we improved this and do we have a better planned route for the loaners? Or is there still a way to go? I really hope we have


{Ed002's Note - To be honest I don't know John. It is good for players to get experience above youth or PL2 level but what was missing was the "roadmap" concept that some clubs use with their youngsters. It makes sense for the kids so there is some improvement.}

Can I just say how great it is you stuck with us Ed002. I hope it's clear the vast majority on here really enjoy your info and insight. I really hope the trolls don't make you question providing info to the rest of us.

I just wanted to ask, I believe it was someone else asked actually, if you had any time to put the list of highly thought of youngsters together? As always, no pressure. Just asking?.

{Ed002's Note - I asked someone else to do this for me.
Rayan Cherki (AM/RW) of Lyon. Endrick (AM/F) of Palmeiras is attracting significant interest. Ilias Akhomach, Gavi Pedri, Pablo Torre and Ansu Fati at Barcelona. Mohamed-Ali Cho of Real Sociedad. Jude Bellingham (CM) of Borussia Dortmund. Carney Chukwuemeka (CM) of Aston Villa. Gabriel Slonina (G) who will move to Real Madrid or Chelsea and be loaned back to Chicago Fire. Kayky (F), Liam Delap and Dario Sarmiento (RW) with the City Football Group. Lucas Gourna-Douath (DM/CB) LG-D signed a new contract last summer ending interest of Chelsea. PSG may again look to the kiddie. Jamal Musiala (W) who Bayern Munich took from Chelsea. Kaide Gordon (RW) is the pick of the Liverpool kiddies at the moment. Omer Faruk Beyaz (AM/W) of Stuttgart will get better. Charlie Webster (M) and Levi Colwill of Chelsea have excellent careers ahead of them. Florian Wirtz (AM) who replaced Havertz at Bayer Leverkusen. Leonidas Stergiou (CB) from St Gallen. Bruno Iglesias (AM) and of Real Madrid. Roony Bardghji (AM/F) of Copenhagen. Xavi Simons (AM) of PSG.}

Thanks Ed002. Going to enjoy researching the lesser known ones on this list. Thank you sir.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Ed is Charlie Patino of Arsenal not very highly regarded.

{Ed002's Note - If you are going to try and turn the tables to say people who are not mentioned are"not very highly regarded" then this is the last. It is a complete waste of my time and someone else's effort.}

Bit oversensitive ed, don't think anything was meant by the question.

{Ed002's Note - RTF question}

I was just asking as I had seen something about him on the internet but not seen him and did not know if he was being overrated.

Jadon if you don't enjoy using this site, you can leave and let the rest of us enjoy it.

Exactly redhead. Abuse of the Eds must stop.

Whoa, I’m totally in support of calling out abuse but can’t see any here and I think there is a massive amount of overreaction that is perhaps understandable given the events of recent times but is unwarranted here,

Perhaps it’s time to take a small break and get ready for a chilled weekend.

From my perspective, thanks for the information Ed02 (and associate) - it’ll be interesting to look up the young players listed, particularly the ones not based in England.

There is no abuse there was so ever don’t recall Jadon ever being like that on this site I think Ed just took my question the wrong way.

Throw Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliot into that list.

Seriously folks? Suggesting that someone has misinterpreted a question and is perhaps being oversensitive is not abuse. Get a grip.

Tbf grino, it looked kinda smart arsed to me. Maybe you didn't intend it that way but in context I can understand Ed2's reaction.

If you ask for someone's thoughts and opinions and they provide a detailed analysis of a group of highly thought of youngsters . and then question why x, y or z is not on the list then what was the point? Agree with Ed002 here. of course there are lots of kids not mentioned who have outstanding potential. but that doesn't take away from the original list or opinion.
It perhaps would have been better to thank the Ed and suggest a player that you have seen/ heard of that is also potentially a future star!

Redhead i do enjoy using the site, i post most days on a range of topics. don't give abuse and have a bit of banter about my club. From now on ill just stay out of any conversation with that particular ed.

Think this was in relation to stand out academy level players Jurgen. Elliott and Carvalho are first team squad players so a level above that.

@Tom27 I only mentioned them because the likes of Wirtz, Musiala, Gavi, Pedri, Fati and Bellingham were included in the list who are all first team players.
