its not like the madrid starting 11 is any cheaper than city's, and they got battered by one of the best academies on earth
as did chelsea with shakhtar
and barca's academy beat the celtic bought players
What? Aren't they made up of Brazilians? I don't think Brazilians go through the Ukrainian youth system...
They may buy them young and cheap, they certainly didn't go through their academy though.
I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.
Chygrynski, Gai, Shust are the only regular first teamers who are Ukraine that are home grown from Shakhtar pretty sure. Pyatov, Kobin, Kucher, Stepanenko, Devic are all grown from other Ukraine clubs.
