Is Mourinho FINALLY talking some sense?

La Masia has grown some of the best footballers in the world. While in the same amount of time, Real Madrid has bankrolled some of the most already established star-studded squads to ever be assembled in a locker room. Two very obvious and different philosophies of creating a team.

Easily, Real Madrid has the stacks of cash to build a youth system that can rival that of Barcelona's? So why haven't they done so already? Their "win now" mentality has only produced three trophies in the last few years - The Copa del Rey, La Liga and most recently, the Supercopa de España. That's only ONE trophy of significance since Mourinho took over, if you take into account his trophy case criteria.

So how much of an argument does Mourinho have against his own club that their current youth system has a different agenda that doesn't entirely support the first team's needs when it comes to player personnel? Does this mean Mourinho intends to stay much longer than expected and field a mixture of the current and one of Real Madrid's future? Does he finally realize the need to have a nucleus group to build around, the likes of Barcelona's own Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Puyol?

For more insight into the latest Mou-saga, check out this little tidbit by espn Real Madrid blogger, Rob Train:
