Surprised he lasted as long as he has to be honest. At times that academy is poisonous behind the scenes.
Loads of backstabbing and jobs for the boys culture there.

I don't think any fan of any club has the right to "demand answers" to anything going on at any club.

Shit happens, lets just hope its not shit that reflects badly on the club in the end.

Lots of rumours going around about this but if we never find out I won't be too worried as it means that we don't have the clubs name dragged through the dirt again and its all been dealt with.

I can't comment on the internal actions of which I have no knowledge, further more if its a police matter its best we all keep away from posting on this matter. One thing I can tell you all is that I know of a young local defender (who's bloody good) who approached the club and was promply rejected. He's gone on to play in Europe and has broken into the English leagues. There are a number of Championship and a few Prem clubs watching him evey game. What bothered me was that we've been wiithout a commanding defender since Flint left and the club was offer one on a plate. We don't seen to bring in and bring local talent, when other clubs like Reading are all over our patch for youth development.

You can tell that tale about any Academy, anywhere. Reading released Charlie Austin, Arsenal released Harry Kane but kept the "highly rated next Ashley Cole" (BOO), Southampton (IIRC) released Ben Gladwin because he was too small(!) and Tyrone Mings.

But that could just be down to subjective opinion Red Ken. i.e. they just got it wrong.

As far as we're aware and due the details of the Club Statement, it is not a police matter.

I know who the player is....it's one of those lads who didn't make the cut in the Samsung Win a Pro Contract thingymajigs...isn't it??  Soapy Tit Wank

So IDRC Smiley Point still stands, these were just a couple of random examples of players who've been released by an Academy that went on to have decent careers in football. Happens all the time, it's not an exact science, as Batch says so much of the decision making is down to subjective opinion and in some cases personal bias.

Absolutely, every club has one or 2 "that got away" Jamie Vardy at Sheff Weds, Ian Wright at Southend, Platini at Metz, Ruud Gullit at Ipswich, Eric Cantona at Sheff Weds the list is endless.

Add Theo Walcott to our list as well as a few others, you can go on and on with near misses.

Some people even think Branco was a good defender Wink

That statement is (possibly unintentionally) perfectly calibrated to do maximum damage to Newton's reputation without actually accusing him of anything.

I did hear that Mr. Blobby is involved and Gordon the Gopher has said he will never work in TV again...
