    There are a few similarities but some important differences in that Cloughie alludes to throwing in the youth out of necessity without having a clue as to how aligned to the first team their style of play was - ie it was driven purely by the economics.
     
    This feels and sounds much more coordinated and i expect we will see 2 streams of youth emerging.
    1) those who have value, but won't fit DCFC - sold as assets
    2) those who fit who will be progressed to the 1st team and who may subsequently be sold for even more value.
    It seems to have taken us a while to find someone who buys into this holistic approach. You get the impression (which may be completely unfounded) that other managers gave the impression of this thinking but didn't follow through.

    Unforeseen events - the owner unexpectedly died and the funding model changed. Thats the breaks sometimes - Leicesters owner unexpectedly died but the dynasty and the model carried on. The same wasn't the case for Southampton.
    Shame really - it also highlights the need for good succession planning as much of their youth success was down to Les Reed and when he retired the new crew were not as good.

    Enjoyed the interview very much.
    Comes across as very grounded, thoughtful, persuasive and a genuinely decent passionate coach.
    The idea of generating an individual level roadmap for each player sounds deceptively simple but I can imagine it being difficult to do and reach agreement on.

    Not saying she is a young Corbyn, bit Jess Phillips always seems great to me.

    I didn't see it. I was imagining Johnson quoting random Greek or Latin and Corbyn looking a bit befuddled like your grandad. 
    I'll study the manifestos 
    Nothing made of the conservative u turn on reducing corporation tax? I'm sure there are some posts about 150 pages back arguing passionately that ot was a vital policy to retain businesses in the UK. Omg......now what are we going to do........😂

    Well in that case she should be on the live debate, would offer up good balance considering she would be up against a couple of giant tits.

    Whisper it quietly but I voted leave,  mainly to spite Cameron and Osborne who presented very poor arguments for remaining. 
    I too now regret the outcome very much and hold my hands up about the ignorance of the key issues.
    But I also recall that nobody campaigned on a "let's make the EU work for us " platform. I realise that we cannot rewrite history but regret that I think such a positive EU campaign would have resonated far better than the silly technical economics that became "project fear".

    Too true - most thought it not worthy of too much effort. If 'Led By Donkeys' had managed the Remain campaign this would all now just be a distant memory. And it still holds true today, the media have given up on protecting the truth, or rather cannot in the swamp of social media claim and counter claim. Dark times, as I said.
