The Maiden And The Unicorn, Domenico Zampieri
“I was interested by the piece on youth development by Chris Green in The Observer Sports Monthly (link not available online). I think he makes some very telling points – the way football clubs treat children in England and Scotland is absolutely abominable. I’ve blogged about this before but not in the depth that Green covers (and I intend to buy his book at some point).He makes, like I have, the point that the Dutch system is probably preferable to the one we have. Voices in the English and Scottish games (including David Ferguson in The Scotsman a few weeks ago) will often denounce this by saying that the Dutch system couldn’t be replicated for any number of reasons.” (Left Back In The Changing Room)
