Im really pleased that he has had such a good career, he was in same youth set up as my mates son who always said what a great lad he was!
Out of that Blues academy side that played Man U in FA youth cup q/f Adam was only one to play in another Prem side and only about two of them ever played in any league team after they left us.
The failure rate from Academies is truly horrendous!

No idea why.

It's not really, the professional game isn't age group based. If you had a player a year make it and players play to 36, you would have an 18 man matchday squad. So 2 or 3 is fine, taking into account the top clubs will have a lot more make it at some level.
Revere me.

I was gonna say. It was about 3.5million if Burnley paid us in Pakistani Rupees.

Omg! A hundred? Sure they do from under nines upwards nowadays so actually it’s probably double that!
The under 18 team I referred to only had Adam who had a good career, perhaps two more who played div2 or lower.
