    The club have certainly got behind their new man as after training today Andy Legg was sacked as the u23ís coach.

    Looks like the club at all levels are ditching the long throw then!

    Didn't Neil Harris say something in his press conference about Ken Choo intending to make a statement about the future of the academy? It was a question Harris partly dodged (fair enough) but he implied the club had plans to ensure the academy worked better in the future. He didn't say anything about Andy Legg, but maybe this is the start? If the club have got a plan or a strategy I want to hear it!

    Craig Bellamy is being brought back in and this time no more Mr. Nice Guy.
    He's going to introduce corporal punishment and water boarding apparently

    Sacked for what though?

    There's a difference between being dismissed and settling an exit from employment.

    Well, first priority might be google "competence# JonJon.. I mean, my 11 year old train regularly with uefa pro coaches.
    Why shouldn't the club move up a bit? its not like competence have been A1 priority at the club in recent years..

    How is that a response to my post? You have lost me. I am totally in favour of competence and moving up - but my only point was that I believed Harris had suggested a statement about the academy was due to be made by Ken Choo, and I want to hear it. That was all!

    I am not suggesting you google "competence" JonJon But i would strongly suggest it for the club.. I am sure Harris has nothing to do with youth structure at this moment, but maybe with time.

    Strangely enough, on today's WaesOnline football page, they have a review of the U23s game played earlier, where they specifically refer to the team as 'Andy Legg's side'.

    I'm sure you know best, but WOL says
    Former Norwich City, Bristol Rovers and Wales under-21s midfielder Tom Ramasut takes over from Legg on a temporary basis as the club seek a permanent appointment.

    Ramasut, 42, has coached at the academy for eight years and was in charge of todayís 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic at Leckwith in Leggís absence.

    It seems pretty unfair to lose your job for no good reason. If your boss came in one day and sacked you just because he wanted to change things around a bit then you’d feel very aggrieved especially, if by the boss’s own admission, you had been doing a good job. I think you’d take it to a tribunal. This is the second time he’s been badly treated by Cardiff.

    Yes, I was thinking that this morning. The WoL article doesn't really make sense if you want to understand why he was sacked

    I gave you guys the story before there was a story.
    Unfortunately thereís more too it and Iím afraid that unless the correct remunerations are made and Leggy knowing what he knows - this is going to rumble on....🤐
