Alan Lewer you mean. ;)

Angry man. He didn't like Giraffe. He did like walking his dog around Nailsworth.

Eddie Oshodi with a few quotes in this Guardian report about youth academies:

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... -academies

He now plays semi-professional football for Wealdstone in the National League South, and is taking a psychology degree at Birkbeck College. He says he advises young players not to sign for an academy until they are 16, to avoid having their social experience and development narrowed. “It becomes like a job from the age of ten,” he says. “It completely dominates your growing up. Some people fall out of love with the game.”

Sounds like a good piece of advice - have witnessed the terrible come-down from youngsters rejected at an early age, and many drifting away from the game for good. Many academies have taken lots of youngsters which really have no chance of progression in the game, to gain maybe one or two to promote within, and possibly to thwart other clubs from signing them, not caring what happens to them afterwards.

They also deliberately use some youngsters, to push others in the squad, while knowing it is unlikely they will progress further.

Curtis Guthrie back on the subs bench for colchester yesterday. He's seen as a saviour for CUFC if he can discover last season's form.

Robert got an 8 yesterday playing for Aldershot.

a reasonable number of ex players pick up management jobs at a decent level ,with maybe no real attributes apart from the fact that they have played the game, an some glassy eyed chairman thinks it will 'work out'.

playing and managing-chalk and cheese .

that given-in the case of Jerry Gill-he has some lower level management experience-and from the minimal amount that i know-have a feeling with Mr Gill, that he will be a first class manager-and will keenly watch (possibly literally ) the progress of Bath under his guidance.
never spoke to him- but again-from a distance appears a nice and intelligent guy.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
