O'Neill: I Understand Why Dyer's Leaving
Thursday, 8th Aug 2019 20:49
Blues general manager of football operations Lee O’Neill says he fully understands why U18s assistant manager Kieron Dyer has decided to leave the club.
Former Town and England midfielder Dyer outlined the reasons behind his exit in an interview with TWTD.
“I think we’re disappointed because Kieron brings a lot to the academy but I 100 per cent understand the reasons why he wants to go and do it,” O'Neill, who is also the club's academy director, said.
“I think he used a great analogy when he said 'I want to go out on loan, I want to learn the industry, I want to get better and bring that back to the football club'.
“Who knows what’s going to happen in the future. All I can go on record and say is that he’s been a great asset to the academy, he’s worked incredibly hard over the last two years.
“I think I’ve seen a different side to Kieron, he’s worked very hard and I’m sure he’ll go on to big things. He just has to be patient with his coaching career.”

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.

Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
