Remember Dag Alexander Olsen? Another bright young thing signed to our academy that has now been sold on and is scoring goals (be it in friendly) for Valencia. I guess either these kids we sign are just not very good in the first place or perhaps don't develop all that well. Or we fail to develop them. It's happened with plenty of kids, all shifted out of the club faster than you can say Owen Price. Blondel, Ziegler, Hamdauoi (the latter banging in the goals in Eredivisie at the minute). Not that any of them are breaking into international football (to be fair, Blondel has been capped a couple of times). In fact Jonathan is probably a prime example of how not to develop a young player.
Now Tomas Pekhart looks set to move on. I guess our delusions stretch back all the way to the youth team because I'm hard pressed to think of anyone who has been given the chance to break into the first team. Ledley King the only noteworthy success of recent times.
Our current academy side, as noted a few times here in the past is more than decent with several talented youngsters. Best to completely ignore/forget about them and then be pleasantly surprised if one manages to get onto the subs bench 5 years from now.
For the record, I have no idea when Dag left Spurs. Could have been months back.
