Should do a mini salzburg / leipzig model imo.

Worked wonders for Chelsea as well with their relationship with vitesse.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Do you think in terms of youth players breaking through and being prem league standard is down to 'producing' or its more important the actual finding. I mean if you look at chelsea now for example or man utds 'kids' was it something that they did in nurturing and developing those players or just a case of having the best scouting and the most attractive propositions for the best young talent. Id imagine it is the latter but I genuinely dont know how important the setup is for development.

Errr I think it's a mix of

Good scouting and identification (RBL)
Good catchment area (PSG)
Good 'use of the rules' shall we say (City, Us)
Good coaching throughout the age groups (Chelsea, City, RBL,)
Good pathways into first team football, here or elsewhere from as early as possible (Chelsea, RBL)

Probably lots more but for me the most important thing is coaching and pathways. The most talented player in the world for their age group will wilt if they aren't coached correctly, and if they don't get mens football (w good coaching at an appropriate level) as soon as possible.

Re Chelsea : they've not got many into the first team but they run it as a business, get them a pathway into first team togger on the continent or in the championship then sell. Arguably the best academy in the Premier league to be honest.

Are we still playing players due to be released by the club?



No, they've been released and we're still playing them.

We don't need to rush him into the first team, we just need to make sure there's a reasonable pathway to mens football, eventually leading to first team footy at Everton.

Tried watching it but was on baba duty and stuff an all.

Adeniran looked good again I think. Quite high on him on the sly. Markelo energetic but lacking a bit of quality at times.

Gordon didn't impress me as much as I was hoping. Obviously has ability but drifted in and out and didn't turn the screw, don't know how much of that is tactics or whatever. Reminds me a lot of Ross Barkley at 17/18 to be honest, but built more like dowell.

Simms...yeah, I'm not sure to be honest. Very 'raw' on the ball, but managed to bag another goal (that I missed tbh).

Simms for Kean?
Some shout that

The best was drop Kean into the u23's and then we'd 'find out'. Haha, come again?

Yeah! You missed the point!!

Funny, that!!!

Apologies I have to admit I tuned out of the convo but your post stood out, I didn't check the context behind it etc. so if I've misread genuinely apologise.

The whole convo seemed beyond daft to me.

I could see it being true certainly. Very grim as usual, the club refuses to move with the times.

Part of the problem of hiring within is the same old power structures remain and you don't have the fresh ideas and perspectives. Dbb apparently the best possible hire for the job, okie doke.

Niasse played 90 minutes. 32% posession. 442. Seeya unsworth.

Them: Peter Moore (born 1955) is a British/American business executive best known for his former positions as Senior VP of Global Sports Marketing at Reebok, President of Sega of America, and Corporate Vice-President of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business division, overseeing the Xbox and Xbox 360 game consoles. From 2007 to 2011 he was head of Electronic Arts' EA Sports game division. In 2012 he was appointed COO of Electronic Arts. He resigned from Electronic Arts in February 2017 to become CEO of Liverpool Football Club.

Oh, and he’s a Liverpool fan.

Us: Before venturing into the third sector and world of sport, Denise spent 16 years working in education and fulfilled a variety of academic and leadership roles within Higher Education.

Denise arrived at the Club in January 2010 to develop and lead a transformation strategy for Everton in the Community. Due to the success of this venture, Denise became the Club’s Chief Operating Officer in October 2011, before being promoted to Deputy Chief Executive in June 2013. In that role, Denise played an integral part in improving the matchday experience for supporters, in turn helping to increase attendances and enhance Everton’s reputation both nationally and abroad. She was appointed to the Club's Board of Directors in July 2016 and then named CEO in June 2018 following the departure of Robert Elstone.

Notice the difference? It all starts from the top.

I got roundly boo'd at the time for suggesting that maybe the best possible person for the job is not Denise from down the hall.

But frankly - I don't even support Liverpool and I know what their head honchos do. Moore is the business, Edwards is recruitment, Klopp is coach and media face.

What do ours do? How come the best possible head of stadium development happened to be the man running finch farm, Colin chong? How come the best possible head of commercial happened to be running our UNDER PERFORMING commercial partnerships?

Club always does this, insular parochial little gang that refuses to face the future. Has been this way since Moores in the 60s oddly enough.
