We have one of the best youth set ups in English Football we produce more talented footballers then most premiership clubs, We have talented youth coaches, managers and staff in general. I'd continue to promote all the way to the manager position.
We don't produce more talented footballers than most prem clubs. Even if the prem academy player doesn't make their first team he'll often end up in the Championship, L1 or L2. We've recently produced 2 prem standard players in Watkins and Ampadu.

Bet the charlton fans are underwhelmed with that one (if it’s true)the owner appears to be a bit of a case,and I expect Matt Taylor was well aware of that which is why he gave this one a swerve,however his stock has risen so I wouldn’t discount other opportunities arising sooner or later

No, they aren't particularly overwhelmed with it. The more success taylor has with us the more interest he will attract. It may not be Charlton this time, but there will be plenty other clubs interested in the future.

Get him on an improved contract pronto. If anyone wants to take him off our hands they will have to pay big!

Richard Cawley is the main football journo from their local paper which gives this a good degree of credibility. That's a bit of a leftfield appointment. I know he's done a good job at Swindon this term and was dealing with a s***storm at Rovers in his only other job, but still surprised. However, I know that prior to his appointment at Rovers he was incredibly well regarded in PL academy football. Not sure how he aligns with much of what is there in their squad though, so baffled.

Yeah, it's a bit of a surprise. I don't think he was even in the running. I didn't see his name linked with them.
