Clegg Not Speculating on Klug Return
Thursday, 23rd Feb 2012 10:28
Town chief executive Simon Clegg has refused to either confirm or deny that the Blues have targeted former coach Bryan Klug for a return to the club's Academy, as first revealed by TWTD on Sunday. Klug was controversially axed by former boss Roy Keane in January 2010 and is currently the assistant director and head of player development with Tottenham’s youth set-up.
Town are yet to decide whether to opt for Academy Category One or Two status – only six clubs from outside the Premier League have indicated they are even considering the former – but either way there will be an increase in staffing numbers and probably a reshuffle across the board with Klug potentially back at the helm.
Clegg said: “It would be wrong for me to speculate on any member of staff, past or present. One thing is clear though – even if we aspire to Category Two – there will be a need for additional staff.”
Clubs have until March 31st to indicate their decision with the new EPPP four-tier Academy system – which Town voted against - set to be brought in next season.

We as a club have some quality players in some crucial positions on the pitch. Most notably our strikers and centre-backs are probably the best in the league.
Don't Look Back in Anger by everhopeful
After the heartache comes the reflection. For a second, we had a glimpse of the Premier League. Just a glimpse – and it was as beautiful as we remembered. It reignited that spark of hope in all our hearts, the dream that, one day, we might find a better place to play. But for now, Sally can wait.

Where Did it Go Wrong? Play-Off Semi-Finals by GeorgeITFC24
We all will be forced to remember the excruciatingly disappointing end to the 2014/15 season. 4-2 on aggregate we lost to that lot up the road. We pretty much nailed it at home with the 1-1 draw. We kept them at bay and matched them in every area. But away at Carrow Road it all just fell apart. But why exactly?
