      Interesting this- our fascination with Scandinavian kids.

      Would any of the Denmark, Norway or Sweden team get into ours? Eriksen of course. That's about it no?

      Hardly a breeding ground of World beaters.

      But then I guess if ONE of them becomes the next Eriksen we win.

      No point judging younger players on the old players, that lesson was learned by England at the world cup.

      or next Ibrahimovic, or next Laudrup, or next Larsson, or next Brolin, or next Schmeichel, Ljungberg, Riise, Solsjkaer.....

      Great players can come from anywhere

      But we get the opportunity to shape and mould their development. We've clearly identified some talent that can be nurtured, and I think we'll start to see some progression from the Academy into the fringes of the first team in the next couple of years.

      Oh it's exciting for sure.
      Dreyer in particular looks VERY promising.

      I think the difference with the Scandinavian leagues is that they are generally of lower quality which means that talented young players of age 18-19 have already broken in to their first teams played competitive mens football albeit at a lower level. I can't remember the exact details but I'm pretty sure a bunch of the youngsters we've signed have played in the first and second tiers of their respective leagues. Gwargis for example has played in the second and third tier of Sweden's league system.
