  1. my son started at the academy 9 years ago and theres been massive improvements in facilities since he’s been there But of all the cat 1 and 2 academies wednesday facilities are probably the worst But they compete with the virtually all the clubs on the pitch at younger ages its when the get older the bigger clubs spend a lot more money buying the best prospects in the country unfortunately united with the riches of the premier league plan to go cat 1 in a few years and have plans for a new training ground not every parent is swayed by facilities but a lot are
  2. 15’s hardly ever play at middlewood road
  3. That’s not Bruce’s flag either his says Sheffield
  4. Liverpool are in the process of building their new first team training ground at the back of their current academy
  5. Im not sure where this myth is that Swfc only recruit from within the city in the 12/13/14 age group there’s kids from Bradford . chesterfield Leeds Derby Hull Huddersfield any further afield is not really practical for most parents Swfc are a cat two academy but so are most of the bigger local teams sufc barnsley forest Leeds only Derby are cat 1 i think the only real issue at middlewood is there’s not enough pitches which the academy now uses Thorncliffe and Hillsborough college Has for lads coming from other academies what’s the problem with that didn’t David Brooks just earn united £15m after getting released at city at 16
  6. I think it was Neil Thompson he’s been helping Bullen he’s our u23’s manager

  10. Spencer was already a part time coach at Wednesday with our u13’s From what I’ve seen his coaching methods will stand him in good stead to coach older lads
  11. Interest free credit on membership over 11 months just a £30 set up fee
  12. Ben is a big loss to our academy great coach and a top bloke i don’t take him leaving as a insult to Wednesday though city are a top set up and Ben already lived in Manchester
  13. Didn’t a team from Greenhill school win it two years ago representing the other lot ? Well done one boys great achievement
  14. My son only went to wednesday Man City and Derby so no not them all But I have seen him play against the majority of the northern teams and watched how other teams coaches coach their lads over the last 5 years im by no means a expert just my opinion
  15. My son as been at the academy since he was 5 year old and it had improved more than any other academy in the country The coaching is on parr or better than most academies in the country Unfortunately the club as out grown the facilities now to move to the next level it needs a big investment but I think this will only come when we get back in the premier league
