Another article - this time an interview with Academy supremo Piet Hamberg.
Hamberg's quote here maps perfectly to RM's model, and it's no surprise, given RM was the architect behind the Ajax system, and that Hamberg served his time there as a player and then coach. In retrospect it's no surprise that Hamberg was recruited. I'd argue Rafa's applying something like RM's model in his work at LFC. Piet might as well be doing an impression of RM. It's not immediately clear whether Piet will talk the talk and walk the walk, but at the very least, we're starting out with the right vision and philosophy if you see the current LFC project as one that follows RM's model. Hamberg has introduced a structured skills framework in the Coerver method ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coerver_Method ), and while there's no conclusive proof of this, I'd argue that we're now seeing a pattern emerge in the way Liverpool plays football at youth, reserve, and senior level. Taken out of context, his words question Rafa's desire to bring these players through; however, we've already seen the words of Hamberg on this front - when they're ready technically and tactically, they'll be compared 'like-for-like' with their counterparts in the first team squad.
