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.

A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
