I think we set back our youth development not loaning out a lot of players the last 5 years. If Poch just started KWP and stuck with him after he sold Trippier I think we'd be in a much better spot.

Frankly, if we just never bought Aurier and made KWP the #2 after Walker left, that would have been even better.
They were too similar?

I don't think KWP should be sold TBH, think he shows what he can do, given a decent amount of playing time.
I do too but our youth system for the last 5 years has been crap. I think it is in KWP's interests to stay where he is appreciated and even for Marcus Edwards to get a move to a big club.

KWP would get a MOTM and then sit on the bench for months at a time. Lord even knows what happened with Marcus but he was clearly given fuck all guidance and then judged by old farts who can't even remember what it was like to be a kid.

Whilst it would be crap for us, it would make us rethink our strategy in the future.

Now I'm a big fat dynamo!

Hopefully we use McDermott leaving to revamp the youth setup and strategy.

Jose is at least way more pro loans than the previous set up. Loans are important for these kids to get minutes. No way of knowing if they are ready for the first team if they don't play and all that jazz.

Either Dan Kilpatrick or Ali Gold mentioned that McDermott’s successor could well be an internal appointment to save money. If so, probably less likely to see any real change.
