All the time & money spent on building the academy infrastructure seems like time & Money well spent.....some fantastic prospects coming through to the first team now, with Dan James being the latest. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

It has been my opinion that the academy was a waste of time in the EPL and didn't provide value for money, however the academy is now the jewel in the crown. It's given us a young squad of good footballers who know each others game, that with some good buys from Potter and it's all good.
Of course not all our young players came all the way through our system, we pinched some from other teams.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

Ben Davies came through the academy and was then sold for ยฃ15 million, so how you can say it didnโ€™t provide value for money is beyond me.

Dan James was a Hull Academy product. We bought him.

Hold on now, how long did Davies actually spend at our new academy!? Surely it was still being built when he was a youth player at the Swans!

Hold on nothing. Davies came through the Academy at Swansea.
Unless you want to give credit to the Danish.

The square root of nothing. He came via CoE and trained with the youth team at sketty

Peene's had another Regi Blinker, but I agree with his overall approach. We're unique in that we have a big catchment area with little competition. As long as a proper plan is used (which doesn't include the tail wagging the dog in the form of pushy parents or Jenkins deciding which players get to go on loan) then it's a good investment

Too early to make judgements on the academy imo. The kids coming through now were either bought in, or spent most of their development in the CoE. The biggest factor in their emergence is relegation from the PL. Players like Gwion Edwards may have broke through here if we were a Championship team when he hit maturity

Oh right so in your original post where you talk about the investment in building infrastructure of the academy, you were also talking about the youth facilities that existed prior to Landore / Fairwood then?

Davies made his debut in 2012, the academy opened in 2013 and he left for Spurs in 2014. Apart from that, bang on like.

Still came through the youth setup.
Splitting hairs.

Or do you as someone who is on the trust Board think the academy/ youth setup is not value for money.

So the academy had a different name during Davies time.

You could say the money that we had for Davies who came through the Swans setup paid for all the infrastructure.

You are not getting this are you?

Your original post made reference to money invested in infrastructure building. That didn't happen during Davies's time. Your silly shop analogy doesn't work either.

So Daves came through the centre of excellence as it was called then.
The centre of excellence was then rebranded and called the academy.
Itโ€™s a bit like saying Allchurch never played for Swansea city, because they were Swansea Town at the time....itโ€™s called splitting hairs.

Davies came through the Swans setup and the club made ยฃ15 million from him.
The remark regarding infrastructure, was that spending millions on the academy is now paying off.

So now your original point is incorrect. Because you are now saying that the investment you spoke of relates to the time before the academy/Landore was built when very little money was out in that time.

And your point about it being a rebrand is ridiculous too. Its a completely different beast.
