We don't need no education!
Is it just me or do you really want to see certain senior players back in the team at the expense of Newcastle United's super young guns?
They will get their chance against Birmingham in the FA Cup once more and there aren't too many Geordies complaining.
The kids have done fantastic since they come in but with Stephen Carr, Celestine Babayaro, Craig Moore and Titus Bramble all to come back, Glenn Roeder will have decisions to make when it comes to his team selection.
Like kids in all walks of life the likes of Paul Huntington, David Edgar and Matty Pattison have all put in solid but not, at times, perfect performances.
The same can be said for Steven Taylor and Peter Ramage.
However does it seem that long ago since the likes of Bramble, Babayaro and Carr were all being slated for the similar mistakes?
Alan Hansen once told us all you don't win anything with kids.
But although these young guns don't have the experience and are still being educated at top level they sometimes don't show it - ask Edgar or Huntington that one!
One of those kids Hansen spoke about turned out to be Nicky Butt and to our expense we lost the Premier League title despite flying into a 12-point lead with Man United taking the honours.
Those kids at Man U, Beckham, Scholes, Butt, the Nevilles have made star studded careers on the back of their early days, so all Magpies please take note...
You can win things with kids.
Middlesbrough took a team largely made up of kids to the UEFA Cup final and Newcastle could go one better.
Taylor is first choice these days in some people's eyes and his preferred partner in some people's eyes is Ramage.
While Paul Huntington and David Edgar have offered exactly what United have been lacking in recent years - passion, proper passion!
Perhaps he might be advised not to tell us about it next time he does it but when Hunty took out Aaron Lennon in the Spurs game, he did exactly what a lot of us would have done because he wanted to win the game so, so much.
Jack Charlton would have been proud of his effort.
In the case of Matty Pattison there could be more to come than just hard working performances.
Anyone who has watched him in the ressies knows he has a sweet shot on him.
And in Andy Carroll, Kazenga Lualua and James Troisi there could be more pleasant surprises to come.
Make no doubt about it the hard work put in at the Academy down the years by various figures is now paying off dividends.
Now the time has come to see off the Brummies and United should get through.
It won't be easy but after the Spurs delight the feelgood factor is back at St James' Park - for now at least.
