Apparently Xabi Alonso looking for manager role, that would definitely bring a different style

Transfer windows arrived when Ardley was still playing so I presume we're talking about loan windows.

Not the luckiest of guys is he, didn't realise he had 3 months at Liverpool before Rodgers got sacked.

Russ I agree. I think that is definitely the more productive model. Also I agree about NA, several guys have said he helped them develop. In some senses he'd have been the ideal person (if our club were bigger) to run the age group and academy structure.

Dont’t think Ferguson would come as he likes to have money to spend, a good thing imo as I wasn’t impressed with him at Donny even though he took them up from league 2 although they were something like 16 points clear with 9 games left & still finished 3rd. Talking of ex Rovers managers, I’d love to see Sean O’Driscoll in charge, the football they played under him is a joy to watch at times but given the bad times he had at Bristol & Nottingham I doubt anyone could tempt him away from the youth team at his beloved Wolves.

Lurker - As I see it with Posh, it's mainly they buy a rough diamond, turn them into slightly better players and sell them on again, rather than youth products (I admit I havent looked up the exact split). NA is actually a decent coach and improved some of our players (Pig being the latest).

Yes I nearly wrote exactly the same thing in my moral Wu. I have no idea whether transfer windows are better or worse for football as a whole, but they were a magnifying glass in the sunshine of Ardley’s poor recruitment.

SDR that is a very interesting call, (I wonder if longer term, had he stayed, he had plans to bring him in with us).

Wu fair enough, even more annoying when you consider the only real reason was to stop the mega rich at the very top from fucking over smaller clubs who were performing well. Yet again generalising across all football from the very specific instance of what happens in EPL.

Fixed transfer windows have, in my opinion, been a primary reason behind Ardley’s downfall. Historically he was able to constantly shuffle the pack and rectify recruitment errors.

fixed transfer windows have really made the season into alternating blocks of activity and boredom

Everyone looking to get someone in with time to learn what’s wrong before the transfer window opens.
good luck to him, be interesting to see if Cox goes with him to next job or go their separate ways

Charlton away tickets brings back memories of a few seasons ago. Dom Poleon and THAT header from Barnet. What a day that was.

John Terry lol. Seeing as the franchise customers are reading here and reporting back to the other inbreds I really shouldn't post my ITK info. that Paul Tisdale has applied for our managers position.

Wants a step up from a pub league 😂😂
Also to keep in mind to run an age group side you need 14-16 players, the chances are most of those aren't good enough for your level but you can't run a side without them. In reality most kids in the age groups at any club will be 1-2 levels below the club's level.

Much as the old Wimbledon FC was acknowledged as having one of the top academies in the country.
As said previously if you look at the 4 viewed as a success coming from below the first team only Nightingale came in during non-league and he is struggling at L1 level. Hartigan came in 4 years ago (i.e. established L2), Sibbick 3 years ago, Tzanev even more recently. Kaja and Egan (pre L2 signings) might still make it but are struggling to reach the level. The rest have ended up (mainly) in non-league which is (mainly) where we were when they came in.
