Wasn't it only a couple of days ago that Crimdon posted on here about nepotism at the club?

Nepotism or not it shows good intent.

I am sure he was given the job on merit after a fair and thorough recruitment process. Just happens he's the manager's son, innit.

On an unrelated note, is Russ Green's son still in charge of some of our youth set-up?

lets hope he is qualified on how to analyse players and matches or he will be absolutely no use at all, scouting isn't as easy as people think

I don't think he's in charge of anything but is a coach with them, I might be wrong. It's the same in all walks of life though, often who you know not what you know so it comes as no surprise.

Ian Moore came to us as a player a long time before his father arrived on the scene here. He was a bloody good player, a high quality acquisition, and it was a shame that we couldn't have kept him longer.

I wonder if questions about nepotism would have been raised if at that time his father had been the manager here.

Being a good player isn't the same as being a good scout of course. However, on the basis of what he did for us as a player, not who his father is, I think he is due a bit of respect and should be given a chance just as any other former player might be.

On a point of definition alone, yes, I imagine questions would have been raised then. Nepotism is nepotism whether the favoured one is good at his job or not.

Anyway, let's hope Ian is very good at his new job and manages to find lots of hitherto secret talent.

Was he that good? Genuine question as I don't seem to have many memories of him. I remember him toepoking one in against Bournemouth. But I only remember that because it was on the telly and moved to Sunday at 4pm.

I seem to remember he played on the right wing a lot? Less so as a striker.

That was the season where we finished very comfortable in mid-table so perhaps that's why I don't have too many memories of him.

Bringing the conversation back full circle, he left us in order to go and sign for his dad at Tranmere.

Fromny limited memory he was a good player who as you say spent a lot of time out of position so probably didn't get a fair crack. That and the 'homesick' excuse meant he ended up at Tranmere
