  1. How can you underestimate the worth of coaching staff? Thats similar to saying Teachers at School are not important and bring value to thier role and Subject they tutor their pupils in.
    The younger players are very fortunate at United to have such a dedicated and loyal backroom staff to coach them.The prime example of recent is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they way he was so proud and personal with all the reserve team players.I also thought this was clearly obvious also in watching the Interaction with the developing players and Ole, there was a mutual admiration.
    Dutch coaches as we know are fabulous in general with youth and nurturing them through their early years.To progress to a top level,from a country with a relatively small population to as an Example big hitters in World football.
    Ajax as the prime example follow this ethos of the younger player production line.Rene I am sure will have seen this model in action in depth.I believe he has a magnificent pedigree with youth football history and numerous coaching badges.
    I concur coaches are vitally important.City link are brilliant. 🙂

  2. Absolutely agree mate. My point was that if you ask 10 United fans who the first team coach is, half of them will probably be unable to name him yet he is so important to the whole coaching set up.

  3. @The Boss, I understand what you mean regards 10 United fans! Its like what Tom and I were communicating about the other day on Truly Reds on his fabulous article.
    Its mundane and not excting like talking about the spearhead, the players.

    Anyway dont want to be up to late, reading about United. 🙂
    Look forward to the Thursday links. Cheers.

  4. As usual RedScot you’ve hit the nail square on the head, especially about the Dutch and Ajax. Here’s one of the best football articles I’ve ever read, such an insight into youth development:


    If you want long-term success, you need an admirable, progressive set philosophy that all players and staff strive towards. Look at Barca, this team was literally decades in the making.
