So what are we saying about how football club's should operate?

I can't think of any smallish club that has sustained a period of success without a large injection of cash somewhere along the way.

Without Black's cash would we still be floundering, Scum-like in Division 4?

Yes, Yeovil made it to the Championship but they are coming straight down and we are yet to see what the effect of that season will have on them next season.

Thats true but if it was a level playing field without super rich investors at every other club it would be wore common to see teams like us reach the higher levels just like we did 20 years ago.

I guess thats the problem though, because a few clubs got some backing the only way for other clubs to keep up is yo seek investment themselves. Those who cant get left behind.

This leaves Cardiff with only 59 million remaining from their television money.

Lallana's been with Southampton since he was a kid. Surely this can't be right?

Jeebus. That sort of clause when buying a 12 year old in 2000?

Southampton Academy get all the plaudits but they swept up all the South West youngsters with their satellite academies across the region.

Yes, yes we did.

I stand by my point about Southampton's Academy though. Almost every other kid in West Wiltshire seemed to be on Southampton's books at one point*

Yeah, and that was compounded by Rupert Lowe getting all tearful about big clubs snatching his developed players when they were selling Walcott to Arsenal for all the tea in China and giving us none of it. Twat.

At least Southampton actually bring these kids through though, I find it hard to begrudge them when they've brought through so many England/British players- Bridge, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Bale, Shaw, Lallana, Ward-Browse, Chambers, they've done a fine job. More fucked off with Chelsea and Man City hoovering up all the kids and then doing nothing with them at all other than sending them to the gym.

I think they are a fantastic football club, the level of support they get from a catchment area probably around the same size as swindon's makes me quite jealous if I'm honest.

Catchment area may be around the same size.  But there are a lot more people living in it, surely?
