Eds I see nicky butt has been appointed Head of first team development. Does this mean the club are making changes to the structure of the management? Like for instance bringing in a director of football or something similar imminently? And if so do you think it will be an ex player or somebody close to the club?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what they are up to I am afraid.}

No worries. Thanks anyway.

He’s there to help youngsters transition into the first team. He’s done a good job imo and it looks a sensible move.

I hate to go against the grain on here but I like the type of players we are targeting and it looks like sensible moves are being made, at least from the outside looking in.

We will bring in at least two more players, ship out a few closer to deadline day and I think we will start the season with a good, young squad.

Even when we look like we are changing philosophy and going against what we have done for the past 6 years we still get portrayed as not having any direction


Fingers crossed wazza and its Maguire and bruno.

im with you wazza.

Timming of appointment suggests it's done to deflect our minds from a bad transfer window .

Neil I’m not sure if you are fishing but the casual fan will likely not be aware of this promotion, if it is that. I very much doubt the club are playing mind games by changing Nicky Butt’s job title.

I am lost, Head of First team development, no idea why that is seen as a key role. Youth transition to the first team has been happening for circa 70 years, so why does it now need a specialist position. It sounds like a specialist position rather than what is actually needed, a DOF to restructure the club.

Agree Wazza, the players we are linked to seems like we have a strategy.
Ed002 also said previously that the club will look to improve.
Maybe something positive is happening behind the scenes?
