  • ROI?? kenfoggo. Not while the fans dream on, the selected youngsters sample ambrosia and those in charge live on it. I`m not talking about rice pudding.

  • Surely the whole "Academy" set up only makes sense if these youngsters can be brought on to eventual first team players? Otherwise a total waste of cash and resources! Has anyone done a return on investment calculation for this enterprise?

  • Would be about the right age, KA? Joey`s claim to fame was joining West Ham for a large-ish fee about 20 years ago, but decided he couldn`t stand the traffic\travelling to and from The Smoke, so left without playing a single game! I think most of his `proper` career was at Oxford U. Pub trivia stuff! It doesn`t answer your question, though! ;-)
