It is the direction Carol wants the club to take,younger prospects in the hope to blood them in to the first team

Makes sense. It was also the way smurf wanted to take as well. Clearly didn’t work. Still think it’s the right option. No reason players who’ve been at Man City can’t be decent at this level

Terrific signing. Just what we want.Young striker with pace. Looks good in the air. Scores goals with both feet. Been around a couple of seasons, so knows what to expect.To me there is more optim

Joe, I thought that Jake gave us energy that I struggle to remember anyone else doing for sometime. He also motivated Burgess who now looks lost. Together they formed a partnership that  allowed Joyce

He can still offer Vale a decent outlet if he's used properly. A clever player ,who has more to his game than just playing hoofball to him.He needs a Dodds type of player  to play off him.Admittedly T

Nothing that the fat blue one did worked, that was because he was rubbish at it not because the idea was poor.

If we have nothing to play for in the last 2 or 3 games then this keeper scott will hopefully get a chance prove his worth. 

I mean it would take a seriously bad performance to be worse than brown was on saturday if he is thrown in

Not disagreeing, I never said the idea was poor

Your post seemed to imply ‘everyone but me’

the lad has obviously improved / shown more than he did when he was here

My post simply pointed out that everyone thought he was crap on the basis of a game and a half.  I never said anything about thinking he was good because he clearly wasn't.

We’ve signed this keeper but I doubt he will make an appearance, he’s just cover for Scott Brown. Why not stick with our academy keeper as a sub? - that’s what Crewe would’ve done.

If by chance our academy keeper gets the opportunity to play then fantastic, if it turns out he can’t handle it, then that’s when you should sign a keeper on an emergency loan / sign a free agent.

They obviously don’t think he’s up to it

And there is the problem with the club in a nutshell. It should be a manager’s decision who takes the club in a footballing direction. Not Carol, who knows about as much about football as the next layman with an opinion. 
 

If she really wants to bring in young players she should invest in the academy and spent money on a grossly inadequate scouting network. 
 

Smurfwaite was rightly derided for his daft cheeky punts on players nobody knew about. 
 

What I found deeply embarrassing is that while visiting relatives down south I went to see Arlesey Town. They have ex Arsenal youth team coach Krasimir Karachi who worked under Wenger and has a Uefa A coaching badge.

They are in the ninth tier and yet we are currently managed by a bloke without even his experience, backed up by arrogant plonker who I am told does apparently but has a worse track record. 
 

The club need to open their eyes, look at our sub conference management team and support staff and get it sorted.

I actually believe the exact opposite. As owners they should absolutely have a vision of what kind of club we want to be. Then employ within that framework someone who can achieve it, so we don’t start from scratch every 2-3 years. 
Crewe have has the same ethos and vision for 30 years. It wasn’t a case of artell taking the club in that direction, he is required to work within it. I said it earlier, but I wished we had kept the development squad going. We only had it a year and we had two extremely successful players from it. I wonder where we would be if we had spent the last four years developing it further.
