This is always a difficult problem, a lot of talk re non league gems & and 4/5 posted but what about all the non league turkeys we have had - Hudson to start Ricky Reana(s) the blondie that was signed and many others.
However I have been impressed with the development of the youth system which hopefully will pay back in the long term
For example a very distant 10 year old relative of mine lives in the City of London signed by us travels to Uxbridge for training (so distant never met him let alone see him play)
QPR mate p*ssed off as his (his words) promising 12 year nephew signed to us, also tells me that a 15 year old he knows has signed for us and has regular traing etc in Regents Park
Another maate who is a scout for Bexley was really impressed when having an interview at Brentford at the professionalism of the club
So at that age we are really developing and how that will progress up the club up the ranks we hope
That was the season and so is the next season
More likely to be Warburton who would have the lower league local knowledge rather than Uwe.
Eddie Howe has a habit of bringing on good up and coming players.
YES YOU SKEGRAT!
Really good point! Be interesting to see quite how 'committed' Uwe is come the summer.
I think with all his team now in place we deserve his full attention for the run in and building for next year. I don't want to see him doing corporate shite for Man City again, we should be his first love.
Does that also mean players, managers etc should never appear on MOTD and football focus?
Uwe can do extra curricular things if he wants, it promotes our club and if it earns him a few quid then so be it.
Leroy lived away from home I believe, & Butcher was at least going to move down but probably didn't last long enough - they probably wouldn't have succeeded anyway but it's an interesting coincidence. It may not be the be-all & end-all but I can't believe that having family so far away from the club helps.
Still no better I reckon. Many coaches, few scouts perhaps?
I intend to live forever. So far, so good.
GOOD call! Agreed. I've not personally seen him but don't you just get a gut feeling about this one? : )
"Dean Inman is Hampton's best player by a mile and is only 20.He will get snapped up by someone at professional level in the near future.Outstanding in the air,can tackle and a very good centre half.Was meant to have had a trial at Burnley a few weeks ago until Eddie Hutchinson put him out for a few weeks in the game against Havant & Waterlooville and he should have seen red for that tackle.Has really impressed me in the 6 or so games i have seen him this season."
Also - the chap who scored a bucketfull of goals at HANWORTH VILLA. I think there was two. Chelsea - yes, Chelsea - scouted one of their FA Cup games. Worth a look.
