Player Valuation: £40m
Could you get any better 'education' from unsworth (one of the best youth coaches around) and Royle (vastly experienced in all areas of the game and someone who can relate to what these lads can aspire to having made his debut at 16). It's so nice today that the emphasis in the press and the media, has been the excellent job Everton does at developing and promoting youngsters. I really hope yesterday has taught koeman, there is a 'well of talent' at the club in the academy if he wants to promote from within. Also the fans will get behind the local lads from the academy more.Spot on mate, totally agree. Having proof that there is a clear pathway to the 1st team if the player is good enough is massive.
I think Unsworth has been superb and I don't think it's any coincidence that having Royle in the background helping him would be a massive factor.
