I assume the under 23 coach isn't to replace Dawson? We'd be mad to ditch him after the work he's done.

He's being promoted - from the article:

Would love to have Steve Watson as the new U23 coach and Lee Clark to be part of the staff as well.

Why?

It's worked well having ex-players coaching our young players before...

Lee Clark is a fat, drunk mess. He'll never work in football again.

If we can keep Ben Dawson, Liam Bramley and Neil Winskill together we'll have a great core of coaches focused on coach development as well as player development. They won't allow standards to drop.

Is this official?
Should've got his chance earlier in the first team I think.

Stuart Findlay called up to the Scotland squad. Seems to be doing well since he went to Kilmarnock.

He'd be a class striking coach on a "don't do as I do" basis.

Employ him as full-time penalty taking coach.

Licking Ashley's ring piece has landed him a job.

I really don’t want him back, man. Unless he’s the best, most qualified person for the job he should be nowhere near us.

I'm pretty sure Shola like Harper is actually qualified having done the UEFA coaching courses.

Sure there’s plenty of knowledgable coaches out there with cutting edge ideas just in need of the opportunity.

Yet we continue with the “jobs for the boys” mantra. Perhaps being a bit harsh on him given he’s not had a chance yet, but would be extremely surprised if he is the type of person to revolutionise our acaemdy.

Fucksake i don’t want this knacker teaching our youngins!  He barely made any improvement to his game past the age of about 23.

Have been reading Michael Calvin's 'No Hunger in Paradise' (which I'm sure you've read OCK). Seems like youth football has so much good stuff intertwined with the bad. If we go ahead and appoint an ex-player with barely any experience it really is a damning indictment of how we treat our youth process.

Liam Bramley new U23s Assistant Coach. All is looking good. Just need Neil Winskill to get the Head of Academy Development position now.

Youth Development in the UK has a lot of lip service, with little follow through. There are great coaches out there, doing a great job, but that's the issue - they're coaches. They still have people above them making the key decisions that don't have the confidence to give youth a chance. The balance between results and development is still heavily tilted towards results. We all know youth players only get a chance if a player above them is injured or suspended for the most part. If they don't impress above and beyond the expectation then they're dropped as soon as the established player is fit again. You can't just 'play well'.

I haven't read No Hunger in Paradise, I've only just started to gain an interest in football again in all honesty. I totally switched off for 2 years.
