Alan Irvine has gained a reputation as an excellent youth coach during his time at Newcastle and previously at Blackburn Rovers.

Irvine’s standing among the Newcastle players and parents is high, and his no-nonsense approach has earned him the respect of those he seeks to motivate and develop.  One or two youngsters have fallen foul of his decisive actions when they’ve failed to carry out his instructions during games, and been “tactically” substituted as result.

However it’s noticeable that Irvine tends to be less demonstrative at pitch-side than one or two coaches at other Academies, both when praising and chastising his players, often preferring a low-key approach that seems to be appreciated by the youngsters.  His insistence on high behavioural standards such as zero tolerance to dissent and foul language also does him credit.
