This month Neil Mellor, Gareth Roberts and Simon Hughes are joined by David Thompson to talk about progression and relationships between the first team and youth setups.

Frank and honest as ever Neil and David give their insight into the process of coming through and getting a first team call up – what worried them, what gave them a boost and what set the example they needed. Then the panel talk about what does or doesn’t make a good youth setup and if a one size fits all academy blueprint is what English football needs.
