I see the club are adverting for Paul Reid's replacement. I suppose it's good that they're searching far and wide for the best candidate but on the other hand why not just give the job to Kevin Ball? I'd have thought he would be aptly qualified and experienced and has the best interests of the club at heart. Methven once said that it was shocking that Kevin wasn't utilised more at the club but I can't see that that has really happened.

Does Kevin ball I believe has to apply for the job 
However I would of thought he would be first choice 
And even offered it

Didn’t Bally have the academy the best we’ve ever seen though?
Both Henderson and Pickford rave about him.

Welcome Hammy.

If two players in how many years is the recipe for success that supporters wish to see then their won't be anyone on here alive to see the next one.
The AoL is an unmitigated failure at what it was set up to achieve and needs modern staff that are on the way up whom can work under a proven mentor with teenager/youth level pedigree with a clear 2/3/5 year sustainable plan.

Morning!

I disagree it’s been a failure - there have been a raft of players that have come through and made careers in the league (Colback, Egan, Laing, Nelson all off the top of my head).

The fact that our best prospects are being taken by the biggest clubs is testament to the AOL’s relative success; wasn’t it only a few years ago the young’uns were in a European final?

The way it’s being run currently, and the nepotistic staff recruitment policy the owners have out in place is a disgrace, however.

In the EPL Egans worked hard to get to Sheffield but his improvement didn't occur in a SAFC shirt & Colback did his best when with Newcastle.

We'll have to agree to disagree  like
