Who and when were the last British players to come through the youth academy at City and Chelsea again? :P
Pannu;3808421 said:I simply find the whole fantasy football approach an easy way of getting success somewhat unfair because it isn't the correct way to run a football club. Call me old fashioned but the proper way to run a football club is by gaining success by working hard, building a team that will play together and last years by building a team from youth and if need be, buy players to enhance your team but only from the funds gained from sponsorships, gate receipts and television money. The whole, get a billionaire to buy your club to gain quick success is an insult to all smaller clubs who with working hard and building a team over time, can or should have won a trophy. Many examples such as Portsmouth, Wigan and Everton who have built teams over a period of time and have won the domestic cups fair and square. Could you imagine how many smaller clubs might have won trophies if Chelsea and Manchester City weren't bought by billionaires who have simply used their financial power to bring in the best players to form a title winning team?
