Guardians next generation 2019
Which of these chaps do we want IPOing quicksmart then? Who's the next Greenwood (Vastly overpriced and somewhat disappointing)

Aaron Ramsey, purely for MB chaos purposes
Nice to know we write off players after a handful of appearances 🤦🏻♂️

Heard good things about Joe White at Newcastle and after success of the Longstaff's he could make waves next season.

I won lie, the only two I’ve even heard of are Azeez at Arsenal and Stewart at Liverpool.
Look at the 2014 version...Rashford is the only one to have really made it. I haven't heard of about 12 of them.
I expect most of the 2019 list won't make it either
@BradD well you made like the transfermarkt talent calendar 2018 a bit more then: https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/talentekalender/index
or 2017 one:
The lack of new upcoming players in FI will make these collection of youngsters useless, as none of us can actually gain from their research
I love this kind of thing (especially when you get to look back at the hideous punts/guesses/wild predictions taken on these young boys) and the fact that the Guardian version allows you to look back through the archives to their predictions down to 2014 it certainly suggests that we should be very skeptical about taking advice from these writers!!!!
Not many of those 'predicted' could actually be stated as 'made it' just yet!!!!
Give me tried and tested game playing dividend winners any day of the week!
@dannypea well as I said before these collections will be useless as long as the IPO issue is persisting, as it is virtually impossible to find new young talents without being noticed on IPO day.
However, imagine you would have picked up 100 shares each on the talents from talent calendar 17 and talent calendar 18.
Looking at the talent calendar 2017 there are at least 9 I can name of the top of my head which have increased. Some of them massively like Foden.
With the talent calendar 2018, there are 4 which I know have increased. The most prominent was Greenwood. At the time of the article he was between 60p and 1 pound. Not sure how the sharesplit works on the graph....
@Antierror they don't necessarily have to be 17 year old Premier League kids though to make big money!!!!
I was late to the Sancho party buying a few weeks into last season when he was playing regularly for BvB... Brought at £1.23.... Value now is £6.81...
I was late into Mbappe... buying after he tore Argentina apart in the WC for £3.04... Value now is £6.36....
I waited until Feb last year to purchase CHO from Chelsea... he was £2.84 but his price now £4.72....
I didn't invest prior to them doing significantly well at the elite level because I wasn't sure enough about them to not just be a total gamble... But biding my time and investing at the right opportunity assured that when i did invest i did so pretty confident that their value would grow!!! Much better than plucking a young Gooner out of the air that has never made a league app!!!
Yes its great when you get one right but there's a difference in 'investing' and 'gambling'

@dannypea great perspective.
Begs the question though - when are you investing in Thiago Almada? 😁
@dannypea no I absolutely agree, that they do not have to be 17 year old kids to make money.
My point is that we are losing the ability to get early on those players. We are losing the research part looking for young talents, if we are unable to get onto them, before they break into the first team and IPO at a ridiculous price.
@Antierror Well said, it’s a huge hole in the market.
Get the fm database on!
hahaha i do still hold Cristian Pavon, Everton Soares and Gabi Barbosa at the other end of the scale!!! Maybe if we get PB leagues in Argentina, Brazil & USA i might make on them!!!!
The second part published today.
