Interesting article thanks for posting, the positivity around the 20s is a good distraction from our 1st team. It sounds like Jimmy Boyle has put in a lot of work over the last 2 years and we're now starting to reap the rewards. It's also  great to hear that there are younger lads with a lot of potential behind the players we already know about.

To me this is what its all about-bringing on young and developing players.Funding of this is vital and easily overlooked but the only way ahead is to provide funding and with good player selection and coaching we have the chance of bringing on a stream of talent of SPL quality.There is huge potential in the squad and I look forward with much anticipation to them getting established

Would love to see Jimmy Boyle as our manager. What he has done for the kids is pretty much amazing in such a short time.

I wouldn't like to ruin in. He is good at what he is doing. If it didn't work, we would lose both. If it did we would still lose him.

A very good point, but if I had to choose lol

Isn't McPake supposed to be helping out with the under 20's as well now?

Hello John ... It's funny to read your comment, because I think the same thought has probably went through jist aboot everyone's mind.

Although for a range o' reasons, we maybe held back fae expressing it on here. We have been well updated on here by the posters, & others (thanks) of the recent powerful results, both him & his players have achieved. No jist great wins, but actually scoring goals ... (For the very young fans & DFC players I will explain in a separate post, just what I mean aboot scoring goals) I

It's a fair point made by Derry Drummer in his post ... But it is hard to ignore Jimmy Boyle's & his players exploits, even if it is at a different level. And I wonder if his own approach towards each game, is of a more straight-forward, direct & simple kind. I am not entirely knocking NM's abilities ... But I get the feeling our first team players have got a big enough job on their players without further confusing them with more intricate baffling details, which may well be beyong their capability & comprehension:chaplin:

When we appointed Boyle, I had a wee look at the Airdrie forum to see what they made of him as a manager for the three years or so there. The consensus was that he was a brilliant head of youth who brought through many gems (Tony Watt, Liam Coogans and helping resurrect GMS career) but the job of manager was thrown at him at a time when the club were in turmoil and it wasn't something that he seemed particularly happy doing. It was tough going with their situation but he was regarded as quite a poor manager.

I think it's best to just leave the guy doing what he knows he's good at and give him as much as we can reasonably commit in terms of providing good job security and being able to do his job. I think, with the youth side, there needs to be the aim of having the same people involved long-term and consistency.

As Harry pointed out and DD pointed out.... leave him where he is as he is doing an excellent job with the under 20's. :)
