    ?? I remember reading he was already in Valencia's youth system. Am I missing something? It'd be sick to see this guy play with Baek in the future.

    Hoping all these kids break it in and live up to the hype.

    So are we about to monitor a 10 year old?

    Wow. This is crazier than following NCAA basketball recruiting prospects in junior high.

    Sigh. Is this what we've come to? Speculating on a ten year old? Baek Seung Ho is a completely different case because many from la Masia have started in other clubs at ages 16-18... which is in a couple years for him.

    So is our following his progress any different from grown men being paid to follow and nurture the progress of kids his age or even younger? Facilities being devoted to their development? Room and board being paid/subsidized?

    Football is a game where there is a lot of money to be made from developing a promising youngster. The amount of work that goes into scouting and developing prospects is indeed enormous. But at the tender age of ten, what kind of groundbreaking news are you going to expect? I agree that finding youngsters and following their development is a very exciting thing. I just think that it's more work than it's worth at this point. The closest impact Lee Kang-In can make on a senior club side is age 16 and age 17 for our U17 side. That being said, I'm wishing he grooms to be that DM we always needed :)

    Well they're spending big bucks. We're just typing out words on a forum. We have no problem doing that for other inane topics (like if Betros' kimchi joke was racist or not).

    Lol... SoT - it's too soon. It's kind of like when I watched the first Harry Potter movie in college and told my friends that in 10 years Emma Watson is going to be a hottie I want to hook up with...

    Too Soon... ;)
