Real Madrid are the most hated club in the world. Hated in the sense that people are jealous of our successes. If you are an asian and a Real supporter you'll know that how it feels to hear people abusing this club. I fought two of my friends today over this.

The most oft used argument against real is the lack of canteranos in the Real first team. They presume Real has a poor structure and label 'em "Money Madrid".

Now this is all because of our youth policy. It has been criticized and will be unless we change it.

Look at our cantera players plying their trades for opposition teams.We need to bring back our cantera products.

If you are one of those "worst academy" idiots then the mundialto victory should open your minds.

Partly real are to blame for this image. If we give canteneros chances we wont hurt our chances—We'll improve 'em. Look at Granero and Negredo. Already they have proven to be better than most of our first teamers.

Then there are players who got away like Mata and Lopez. Surely all can't play but still they need to be nurtured to be ready to play in the premier division. Surely then we wont require Gago's and Van Der Vaarts et al.

We need to trust 'em and pay 'em more attention. Possibly Enzo Zidane might be the only under 18 Real player you may have heard of, and this needs to be changed because we have many more Raul's amd Guti's waiting to be discovered.
