At last there is to be a press conference tomorrow to unveil to the public the football chiefs’ long-delayed vision for sustainability.. Tomorrow’s event will be followed by a series of public exhibitions

A spokesman said: “We believe that the community will be tremendously excited and proud about our new vision. Today marks the start of our consultation process and we hope that everyone will feel a sense of pride and excitement in what we are proposing.”

Meanwhile, the plans were due to be presented to councillors this afternoon at a meeting of the Council’s planning applications committee.

Planning permission is necessary because the new proposals, which supersede the previous blueprint, mothballed due to lack of funds, mismanagement and the economic recession,, will include a 230-bedroom hotel, indoor football pitch, sports hall and housing complex.

A full planning application is expected to be submitted next month, which should be formally considered by the Council in May or June, allowing construction to start in November if the scheme is approved.

All this may sound very familiar and provoke thoughts of lip service in respect of consultation with the public and lack of ambition, illustrated by the downsizing of the original proposals. I shall be going along to the exhibition on Friday and I shall let the applicant know my views.

This is nothing to do with Latics, but the latest step in the saga about the Football Association’s latest plans for what is supposed to be “the most modern national football centre in the world’ at Byrkley Lodge, Rangemore, Burton-on-Trent.

The cynical me thinks that this is a Premier League Academy more than anything else, and England will still train at Arsenal. Although I am led to believe this 'centre' in the middle of nowhere is to improve the coaching rather than be a centre of excellence for the youngsters, unlike the French Clairfontaine and it's ten other academies - probably trying to address this problem one academy at a time...

Three years ago an official report concluded that coaching is the "golden thread" leading to international success, but new Uefa data shows that there are only 2,769 English coaches holding Uefa's B, A and Pro badges, its top qualifications. Spain has produced 23,995, Italy 29,420, Germany 34,970 and France 17,588. Between them those four nations have provided eight of the 12 finalists at all the World Cups and European Championships since 1998. England, meanwhile, have not appeared in a tournament final in 44 years.



Too little, to late. Good luck with that, Sheepshanks.

The problem with the badges are that they are extortionate. I realise that some clubs will pay for the coaches to undertake their badges but it is so expense that many can't afford to educated their coaches above level 2, when you need to think about money for kit, netting, first aid kit, pitches etc. I realise that if you apply you can grants for coach training, but not everyone is going to get it.

Price breakdown

Level - 2 £350
UEFA - B £700
UEFA - A £2500
Pro Licence - £8250

Now I'm going to stick my neck out and say 25000 people in Spain, 30000 in Italy and 35000 in Germany did not UK prices

The England under 17s is set to be the first international squad to stay and train at the FA’s £100m world-class coach facility “in the middle of nowhere”.

Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium, Northampton Town’s Sixfields and Hinckley United’s Greene King Stadium are to be the venues for the u17s taking on Italy, Portugal and Turkey in a tournament in August/September.

The F.A.'s England children of today are tomorrow's Greedy League loanees to third division clubs, and the day after's mega-rich superstars, for which I don't have any time.

But I wouldn't mind having a look round the Brewers' £100m world-class training facilities.
