I don't know about the official photos but the bib leaks were definitely coming from people looking over the wall at certain points (then posting on forums)

In Carra's book im sure he said it was one of the worst things they did - splitting 1st team & youth set ups. - if its all together then transition from one to the other is easier..

The club didn't really have much choice, as Melwood has no space to expand into and with all the required facilities to be classed as a top class Academy we had to move somewhere.

What should of happened is around 2000 or so when Melwood was massively renovated, they should of moved everything to the Kirkby site which opened a few years prior.

Yep, even a very unscientific google map search of various teams training grounds show's how small and pokey Melwood is compared to other teams. The Kirkby site is huge. There's even space for expansion.

It makes sense to move it to Kirkby. Not sure whether I like the idea or not if am honest.
