Has anyone played for long enough to see the long term effects of a Head of Youth Development?

i would be interested to know this as well, my youth players never seem to win their u19 matches but still develop pretty nicely because of good coaching so i haven't gotten around to getting a head of youth development yet. wonder if it'd make a huge difference?

without the correct levels of COACHING staff, TRAINING FACILITIES, YOUTH FACILITIES etc no matter who you have won't make a difference! this is a pretty useless position if you ask me!

I have been playing for 5 seasons with QPR and have seen a few players not reach potential who should have with Phil Cannon as my head of youth!

In my opinion HOYD is a useless addition to FM. In my 15 season spell at Seville with all the top coaches and staff and facilities the only players that developed where foreigner's i bought when they were 15. From within the club only a handful reached the first team and just to add depth. Also, the players all the HOYDs i have tried buy, are a waste of money to say the least so i cancel those transfers more often than not. Furthermore, it seems completely random what regens i will get. With extended youth network and scouting knowledge and most years i get the "no player stands out".

It is more about influencing player stat distribution, positions and personality. Only has a very slight influence on CA and PA.
