    Nice to see some of the forgotten names. I remember especially Kerlon and his special dribbling skill. Soccers future is hard to predict I guess...

    The opening paragraph is a bit shite, "a bit wide of the mark" - the worlds record signing is in the list! There's a few that didn't show much potential in the end but you'll have that every year. 2 years ago the list would have included Januzaj. Might not make top 250 under 21's at the minute

    Overall it's a pretty good list

    Still some good shouts in there.

    Weird how Fabio is in there but not Rafael, the latter always showed better potential than the former!

    always good seeing how things pan out over time...wonder what this yrs list is like and how many we would thingk would be world beaters in 10 yrs and end up no where!!!

    for example....
    Renato Sanches
    Kelechi Iheanacho
    Julian Brandt
    Martin Odegaard
    Breel Embolo
    Kingsley Coman

    how many of these will be at big clubs in 10 yrs?...how many will be world beaters? Who will fall by the wayside and end up playing Div 3/4 football?

    So you'd have to be 24-28 now, right? Who are the top 50 players in that age bracket? Who did they miss? Who came from nowhere?

    Griezmann would be one. You'd also probably put Jerome Boateng in a top 50 in his age group. Back in 2007, James Rodriguez was playing for a shitty team in Colombia and rate him or not, he's at Real Madrid while an injury-destroyed Pato is at Villarreal. That, if anything, shows what's wrong with the way we're doing things in the UK.

    I reckon Sanchez and Koman will be alright.

    Never heard of number one, and I've always been quite a fan of youngsters (although I don't know them all of course).
    I loved Bojan when he was 16. Hasn't been up to what we thought he would be, but I hear he has done some decent things at Stoke.

    Daniel Opare just joined Lens, in France's second league.

    When it comes to the future, as a Marseille fan there are 2 players I'm curious about: Maxime Lopez and Boubacar Kamara. Those 2 have a huge potential, curious to see what will they become.
