The Interesting Case Of Theo Walcott

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)
