That couldn't be further from the truth. McDermott has been the top guy in the academy since 2004. Inglethorpe then was U21 coach from 2005-2012. Ramsey was U18 coach for a long time, so the 3rd most senior Sherwood took over when Inglethorpe left and did 18 months in the job. He wasn't popular or successful in the role. Ugo Ehiogu has now been doing that since 2014 and has turned things back round again.
