No never saw that. Will look it up!

Heads up the second half of my paragraph is my inferring of logical conclusion of that line of thinking
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.

Could see it definitely. Did you see the guardian article arguing for clubs spending big on managers? Transfer window for managers logical conclusion, loaning highly rated youth coaches to clubs who wouldn’t be able to afford it usually.

I've been saying it for years that we need transfer windows for managers.

If we had a transfer window for managers we’d still be stuck with Ron and spiralling even further!

I think Unsworth needs to leave to test his mettle, especially if he wants to manage us one day.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

No, we wouldn't. We'd just be limited to unattached managers in our search for a successor.

And of course the hope is that people would be a lot more careful when hiring managers in the first place.

A supposed forward-thinking guy like Moshiri should be well on board with the loaning out of Unsworth to test his mettle. He's proved himself in Moshiri's first pet project, the U-23's, so why would you want to potentially lose him and all that knowledge and experience to maybe come back and sit in the opposite dugout one day.

If you can provide one bit of evidence that Moshiri is forward-thinking w/r/t football (not business, actual football) it would make me feel much better about the club's prospects.

Edit: I see you said "supposed.” Sorry.

Hence the word 'supposed.' Although he has invested heavily in the U-23's, far in excess of other teams, presumably with a view to growing our own production line and not spending huge sums buying it in at a later date. On this basis the coaching as well as the talent need to take equal precedence as you can't have success without both parties, hence he should be all over Unsworth's career plan too.

Yeah, I saw that right after I posted. My bad.

The investment in the youth teams/players is a literal definition of forward thinking.

Just out of interest what’s this heavy investment being made in the under 23’s?

Off the top of my head all I can recall is DCL being bought for the development squad for a large sum. The likes of Lookman and Vlasic were bought for the first team squad.

Do a little more research.

I dont follow the u23s that much but I know there was kid from Newcastle (Gibson I think) who cost a bit and that Donkor, but dont think its been vast amounts, could be wrong though?

@kramer0 for DoF.  Who wants to manage?  I know Brownie is more of a rugby fella, but he also seems like he'd command respect (or crack skulls).

I volunteer for substitutions specialist assistant, and magnet for the peoples' (deserved) abuse!  :D

Lewis Gibson cost £6m didn't he? The lad from QPR, Josh Bowler, cost £4.25m.
