Matty James is a talent, another United kid who will go unnoticed by the media while they praise the likes of Sanchez Watt and Jay Simpson.

United Youngsters who might not make it at United still do well to play in the premiership or the Championship level.. We have Jonathan Spector, Phil Bardsley, Phil Neville, Mcshane, Richardson, Eagles, Ebanks-blake, Eckersley, Campbell, Greening...and some more that i can't remember, Our academy is actually very underrated

Shawcross! Don't forget Shawcross. Still don't understand how we let him go. Should get him back next summer.

oh yeah, forgot him!! i think there's a good chance we might go for him if Rio's injury situation gets worse or if Vida leaves...Shawcross qualifies as a home grown player for us too, so an added bonus

No, a player has to have trained in England between certain ages for 3 years to be homegrown. For example, Rio is homegrown despite being brought through West Ham's academy.

I think the rule you're talking about is Champions League, I think that rule has changed this year too, the number of homegrown players has increased I believe. And i'm sure it increases again next season.
