Would Tavernier actually leave? I get the feeling he's been here so long that he's a Rangers man now. 

 

Saying that, if it were to be a substantial fee, we'd have to look at it. 

 

We do have young Patterson to replace him. 

Unless my eyes deceived me I thought I saw a Rangers crest tattooed on his upper left arm when taking a penalty the other day.

The departure of Mebude, Minor, clearly one of our most talented youths, given the identity of the acquiring franchise, has to be disappointing.

However, our Club consoles us: 

 

"This summer we have recruited Tony Weston from Blackpool, who was much sought-after in the EPL having made his Blackpool debut in the FA Cup at only 16; we have recruited James Graham from Ross County who has been involved with the national team and, like Charlie Lindsay who joined us from Glentoran, had many options.


“The combined spend to recruit these three exciting talents was less than the fee we will receive from Manchester City which is significantly greater than mandatory compensation figures."

 

Frankly this is just making a virtue out of necessity.

File along with

"MacBumfarty's return from injury is like gaining a new player."

It's going to be be increasingly difficult to hang onto our better kids. The money and facilities on offer down south plus the lack of young players establishing themselves in our first team will only lead to more of our 'in-demand' players leaving. Us attracting young players from Ross County and Glentoran is exactly the same, just on a lower level. 

 

All that said there still seems to be little correlation between being a fantastic prospect at 16 or 17 and becoming a top level professional, no matter what Scottish side you're at. Believe it or not, at one time the most sought after young player in Scotland was Michael Stewart, an outstanding youth player he was eventually wooed by Man Utd, at that time one of the best club sides in the world with a great record of developing talent, but he had his choice of clubs to sign for. 6 years later he's playing trial matches unsuccessfully trying to get a contract with us. I wish the lad Mebude well, but I don't blame him for leaving and I'm not sure it matters much anymore.

The core purpose of our football club is to win trophies. The actual contribution of our youth/development players to that objective is negligible That has long been the case. The only reason to devote any resources to younger players is for the purposes of trading. If it was all about developing players for our first team then the only sensible thing to do would be to shut it all down tomorrow morning. If we can't earn a profit from moving them on then we should have shut it down yesterday. Unless anyone actually thinks the future will be different from the past and we will have a first team populated by homegrown talent.
