'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Everton - The development centre for Europe

It looks like Everton are already building a reputation across Europe under Roberto Martinez.

During David Moyes time at Goodison Park, Everton proved themselves as a good breeding ground for young English talent, with Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley coming through the ranks.

However under Roberto Martinez, the development of 20-year-old Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku and 19-year-old Barcelona starlet Gerard Deulofeu has made an impact across Europe.

Martinez believes that Everton and Goodison Park provides the right environment for players to develop and that will encourage other teams across Europe to loan us their emerging talent.

"Clubs have seen the other loanees and how well they have been looked after. We have had phone calls from clubs asking about taking their players next season. They see it as a step-up in their career. Martinez told Everton TV.

He continued: "Put yourself as a director of football. You spend 20million on a youngster but there is no place for him in your team yet.

"Where are you going to send him? You aren`t going to send him somewhere that he is not going to develop or be at a club with a different style. That`s a danger.


Everton's new style of free-flowing will also help to attract clubs from Europe who share the same philosophy.

But it's not just about style of play. Everton are also picking up results, beating the likes of Manchester United and drawing with Arsenal.

In it's current form it's proving a success, but how will this idea develop over time? Is it just a positive for Everton or are there some negatives building our team around other clubs players?
