    Do we have anyone who could be included? I can't think of any.

    Alastair Coote is very highly rated at Tannadice. Alex Robertson and Stevie Campbell - Dundee United scout and head of youth - are doing a really good job.

    Too much, a complete and utter waste of a salary.

    I didn't realise Shankland has signed for the sheep, looked decent at times against us

    MacLeod, McKay and Aird for me.

    MacLeod continues to perform, Aird has come in to the team and produced. He has matured on last season. Hopefully starts against Stranraer and keeps up his good form. Not sure what is happening with McKay, needs a break.

    Our criteria

    Our idea wasn't to identify talented players who have already broken onto the scene. Ryan Gauld, for example, is one of the most promising Scottish players of his generation but he has already established himself in Dundee United's first team side.

    Our intention was to pick out players who will make the breakthrough in 2014 or, if they are already on the fringes of the first team, will make a significant impact within the year.

    Agreed and I would have liked us to take a chance with him however, for his development, he is probably better off at aberdeen.

    Stevie C is a great guy , only thing wrong with him is that he is a Celtic fan.

    McKay needs to go on loan. Any time I have seen him this season he has looked decent but he is not getting near the first team.

    Needs games, get him loaned out.

    And I'm once more bested by contractual terms...

    In which case; Aird.

    What's your opinion on the article? I've heard enough from people in the know about Sinclair to know he's not been doing a competent job.

    I want to know what you think of the players quoted in the article and how they compare to our youths. Also, is there any on the fringes you think might make an impact for us in 2014?

    As I said its subjective and I'm pretty sure its been put together from a list of recommendations. I think we have a few players that would be on many people's lists, Tom Walsh, Ryan Sinnamon and Danny Stoney spring to mind.

    I haven't seen Donaldson and not sure about Spark, if I did he didn't standout. The others I have seen, some more than others. Storrie and King look class acts and are as good as any player we have, Chris Kane has made great strides this season and is top scorer in U20's league. The others have looked decent without really standing out, but the list covers an age range and a few listed are only 15 or 16.

    The point I was making was the players we release that improve elsewhere, around a dozen selected for international youth squads in the past year.

    Are we getting value for money ? I don't think so.

    We are unprofessional and don't come across as a "big club". Of the 19 players we have between U18 & U20 we have ONE naturally left footed player !! As a result Ryan Sinnamon has been played at left-back instead of right-back.

    We recently cancelled an U17 Glasgow Cup tie against Partick Thistle because we didn't have a goalkeeper.

    Ryan Hardie missed a few months through illness, we don't have another striker at U17. (With a bit of trial and error Junior Ogen has done okay in the role).

    As for players that could make an impact I think there is a few and with seven subs every week I think 1 or 2 should be on the bench each week. Sinnamon, Gasparotto, Walsh, Murdoch, Telfer, Stoney, Gallagher and Burrows could all be gaining a wee bit of experience from the bench.

    I also think considering the level we are at Liam Kelly should be the backup keeper rather than pay a significant wage to 34 year old Steve Simonsen.

    I think this list is more younguns who'll break into the teams. MacLeod is already a regular.

    He is not a 'horrible ****', mate. Not the sharpest tool in the box but an excellent player and a good Rangers man.
