1974 U21 tournament in Italy

I've just been watching Tony Evans on YouTube, playing in the top tier for Brum in a see-saw game v Forest in 1981:

He was top scorer that season with 15. If he hadn't left us in '75 he might've got a regular place alongside Walsh when Dyson got hurt. Would he have got us promoted? Maybe if we'd also poached a few other youth prodigies from local rivals before they made the first team (Coppell from Tranmere, Peter Barnes from Man City, Lawrenson from PNE...). If I'm stuck at home I might as well dream...concentrating on players who went on to be regular first teamers (any team) I wonder how this youth team would've gelled in '74:

King
Curtis
Harrison
Hart
Lawrenson/McEwan
Coppell
Ronson/Ainscow
Tong
Barnes
Walsh
Evans

I know Lawrenson isn't our favourite these days, but if he'd played for us it might've made him a different person. The midfield would not have been very physically strong/powerful, but it would've been interesting to watch.
