I disagree. If Chelsea are spending millions on other players we can't expect to rely on youngsters. Look at our first team, Rooney, Tevez, Ferdinand, Hargreaves, Carrick, Anderson, Nani, Ronaldo. All cost a lot and there is still not much between us and Chelsea. The young players coming through may be good but how can they compete with this.
They might be good, but obviously not good enough to start for United when we're paying millions for players from other clubs. What other clubs do is irrelevant if the players coming through were good enough for United.

Example : If we had a young Paul Scholes coming through the ranks, would we have spent that much on Anderson and Carrick ? I doubt it. Even if the likes of Chelsea are spending millions on Lampards and Essiens, Paul Scholes, a youth product, is good enough to compete with that. But seeing as we dont have good enough midfielders coming through the ranks, we needed to invest in Anderson, Carrick and Hargreaves to compete for trophies.

Danny Welbeck has to be the most promising member of our youth/reserve set up at the moment. For him to travel with the squad to Moscow shows how much potential Fergie thinks he's got.
