An Academy XI?

There has been plenty of discussion around our Academy and the youth players coming through in recent times, with Michael Johnson the latest to receive the plaudits following his winning goal against Villa on Sunday.

I came across an article on Setanta's site earlier today and profiled our top XI of youth players. The full article is here, but the XI they picked was as follows:

1: Mike Doyle
2: Peter Barnes
3: Shaun Wright-Phillips
4: Alan Oakes
5: Paul Lake
6: Neil Lennon
7: Neil Young
8: Micah Richards
9: Tommy Caton
10. Joe Corrigan
11: Sir Matt Busby
