Thread: A boost for the Academy?

    A boost for the Academy?

    If you believe what WalesOnline are reporting. Having said that they do have some good quotes from Ken Choo and James McCarthy. A Category One Academy status is also mentioned briefly so who knows. Can only applaud these plans.

    Theyíve said it all before though. Every change of manager the club comes out and says something like this.

    To get a Cat 1 a club has to have its own school and its own ground, so Leckwith wouldn't do. Let's hope this all comes true!

    Yes, I'm afraid I've reached the stage where talk is cheap as far as Cardiff City and their Academy are concerned. This is similar to what we were told when Paul Trollope was appointed and, whether our youngsters at the time were good enough to be included in the first team or not, it wasn't them who got him the sack - Trollope went solely because the senior players weren't doing the business.

    Of course, it's good news that Category One status is being pursued and interesting to see that we, apparently, did have a sell on clause with Rabbi Matondo, but it seems to me that standards need to improve among existing Academy staff if we are to reach the stage talked about in the article.

    Itís not completely true to say we havenít created a player since Declan John. What about Rabbi Matondo.

    At the very least I would say the club is showing they're good at hearing what the fans are asking for: we've got mention of longer term plan, 14 years example given at Chelsea, bringing through talented youth players and seeing (talented) Cardiff City players proudly represent Wales. Tick, tick, tick.

    Now lets see you (start to) put it into action over the next 3-5 years.
