Ricky Sbragia sacked
Needed to happen unfortunately
According to Steve Bates of Mirror I think.
He's not a reliable reporter these days unfortunately still it'd be stupid to make up something for u23.
What did he do wrong ?
Thank the lord, I still can't believe he got a second season. With the talent at his disposal the football he had on show was awful, hopefully the next man we get in charge has an actual game plan instead of relying on individual quality to win matches.

Good. Should have gone after getting the side relegated
He was beyond awful, played dreadful football, basically relied on his attackers (mainly Gomes) to create something from nothing instead of implementing any kind of system, couldn't set up a defence to save his life. A year too late if I'm honest.
Been a long time coming. Dinosaur
Sounds like you're talking about the first team
Took their time
Oh no,not the Leslie Nielsen lookalike.
What did he do right ?
Thank god, Let Fletch have the gig.
He was Ricky Sbragia.
Twitter suggesting that Joyce could return?
Should've at least gave him the chance to clear out the academy and buy some of his own players
Good, because half the coaches in the academy are just as bad.
Darren Fletcher sounds probable.
Another option is Joyce, who I always thought did a great job and is out of work for the time being.
Nicky Butt acting as our DOF? Maybe he is our DOF and the announcement was delayed because of his personal issues.
I don’t think so, he’s head of the academy so sacking Sbragia falls within his jurisdiction.
It does and so does recruiting his replacement but a structural review of the academy goes beyond that.
Who do you have in mind?
I had the impression that he was a very good and highly rated coach. Or did i get that from football manager?
Been hearing he's crap since forever.
Certainly didn't get it from here.
This restores some faith that the club actually wants to develop young players. Great news
thank feck, get someone in like Scholesy if only to get him off the air
Had to happen. U23s is never an easy gig with the constant changes but we have vastly underachieved this year. Hope we get someone who can bring this group on.
There is a really good opportunity here to get in a highly rated prospect. There are many who are great coaches in football who should fall over themselves for a gig like this.
Maybe, although we've been making a lot of changes there over the last few years since he came in anyway, I think he's been given a lot of authority over the academy. We'll have to wait and see, has anywhere linked Butt with a DoF role yet?
Like the idea of getting a talented youth coach. Surely we look at a club which has successfully promoted lots of youth players (Fulham perhaps) and try and take theirs?
Also, bit left-field but what about Muelensteen?
I wouldn't mind Warren Joyce back if we could tempt him, always thought he did a good job.
He is doing his job as the head of youth development
someone needs to come in an put a style and standard of football as similar to the first team as possible - so it is an easy swap when they are needed
The first tean needs to have a style first.
Was only a matter of time.
