As a club in recent years It hasn't half been an up and down roller-coaster of a ride. From Solbakken and Saunders almost destroying my interest altogether to the unified revival by Jackett, the trouncing of League One and more recently the visions of grandeur from Fosun. But amongst all the mayhem has been the redevelopment of the academy and the emergence of what looks to be a fantastic conveyor belt of youngsters who could stand us in good stead for years to come. Improvements not just in the physical structure of the Academy but how it is run on a day to day basis and the investment in the lads has grown massively. In the past we have had varying success with our youth system with some obvious successes but on the whole our youngsters fail to break through and inevitably end up playing in the lower leagues. More recently the players we bring through seem to have a level of technicality rarely seen and the ability to apply it on the big stage, yet I do appreciate it is only early days for the new crop! My question is who do we thank, Is it Sir Jack for his stringent terms of reinvestment in the takeover, Steve Morgan for his business and development knowledge regardless of his obvious pitfalls? We all obviously lean towards Sir Jack to who we owe so much but is the Academy the one thing Morgan got right? (I say this through gritted teeth) I am sure some on here can shed more light on just how these improvements came about and the varying influences of different people.
