Not a question.
Lensen stated that out youth academy will be builth and run in the image of the Ajax academy.
The 433 will be the standard starting formation and players will be attracted who can fith that model.

I removed your post so that the Q&A is separate to discussions on the academy and I've merged your post to the original topic we set up for the announcement of the Academy.

Just to add to your post above, Lensen also said in the past that our style of play is focused on recovering the ball as quickly as possible.

Pioli gets the credit for everything Lazio achieved last season, but our tactics and philosophy is as much down to Tare and Lensen as it is to Pioli.

Oké thanks, you were correct to do so.

I like that philosophy, to take whatever the opponent's strenght is away from them.  Quickly recovering, keeping the ball and a speedy attack and counter.

And to add with this, this also shows why the focus was on a player like Milinkovic.  Hard working physical CM's with some creativity are very usefull with this kind of tactic.

LLSN claim to have contacted Stefano De Martino on April 27 to ask why there has been no movement on the academy. They say Stefano De Martino was the designated contact for queries relating to the academy. On 29 May - 32 days later - they received a reply saying that only President Lotito is capable of giving answers on the matter, and that he's not available for interviews at this time. Furthermore, we've had Joop Lensen employed for almost 18 months as Director of an academy which doesn't exist, and shows no signs of existing any time in the foreseeable future.

It always puzzles me that when the are very obvious examples of communication and planning failures like the above, no one really seems to care, but if the player we bought for 5 million in the most recent transfer window doesn't perform like a 50 million euro player, our management is cursed out of it.

This is the stuff that disappoints me.

I am really tempted to say, this is your typical Italian way of doing stuff, I hope I am not too offensive, but I am following closely the world of cars and this is how things were done/are being done in the last decade and + years in Fiat. Words, promises without anything to back it up. Big mouth, huge pride and nothing behind it. With this kind of management, no serious things can be expected from this team. I was really against anything with a foreign takeover of the club, but it appears that's the only way of seeing Lazio being something more than a top 8 club.

Lazio held an event today - 'goalkeeper day' - where the goalkeepers of our youth team got to train with our professional coaching staff and get some words of wisdom.

Anyway, Joop Lensen gave an interview and said that the first two years of our youth project has largely been about getting things together, but next season will bring a 'big surprise'.

Since this academy was announced three years ago and there's no signs of it, I guess any movement on that would qualify as a 'big surprise'. But let's see.

Mauro Bianchessi spoke on LazioStyle Radio about the youth project.

He said the club have a youth project called 'oro biancazzurro' that aims to raise the levels of every athlete. There is a 5-year plan to have players from the youth ranks breaking into the first team.

Lazio will track the youth players with GPS and perform video analysis and will work extensively on the physical shape of the young players. We will have a psychologist, a nutritionist and even a martial arts specialist working with the players, trying to find ways to improve them. Bianchessi said the idea is that the youth team get used to the methods of a first team so the transition from the two is more straight-forward.

Bianchessi hailed Simone Inzaghi's influence and highlighted Murgia's emergence as an example to the youth. He said that with Tare, Calveri and Lotito, there are four people working very hard on the youth department and there are others assisting, leading Lazio to have two scouting networks - one inside the region, one outside the region.

He also pointed out that Lazio can be a great place for young players as it is clear that you can get playing time in the first team. He pointed out that if Donnarumma went to Juventus, he wouldn't be playing, so this is something Lazio can offer youngsters that the likes of Juventus cannot.

And yet our most hyped up talent in the youth ranks did just that in the summer  :roll_eyes:

Not disagreeing with what he's saying btw, I would also suggest a player like Murgia would not have gotten a chance at Juve. But makes you wonder wtf Portanova was thinking joining Juventus while seeing the first team coach in Lazio trusting his youngsters with lots of playing time.

Most likely, he was thinking of playing for Juventus for more money, like 95% of players would do if Juventus made them an offer.

I have a suspicion Lazio have given up a bit on anyone over the age of 16 to be honest. We added some players to our Primavera but we could've done much more in the market, and the U17s have conceded 19 goals in 4 games which gives you some idea of the quality in that team.

Bianchessi spoke about U16s on the radio - it could be simply because they are doing well, it could also be that this is where he's making his influence count.

So you have to wonder with Portanova if the club simply think he's one of the better players in a very bad youth team and were happy to let him walk.

LLSN interviewed Roque Junior - former Milan player and 2002 Brazilian World Cup winner - who spent some time with our youth department last season.

He had some nice words to say about the work Joop Lensen was doing at Lazio, essentially saying that the vision was very clear and that's what you need, but he also pointed out that Lazio are behind clubs of a similar stature on the continent when it comes to the youth sector and he said Italy overall is behind Germany, Spain, England and France when it comes to this matter.

Interestingly, Roque Junior is now managing Ituano in Serie D in Brazil - the same club we poached Luiz Felipe from.
