Villa were risking a full on Sunderland/Leeds tho

It’s weird that so few teams seem to try and follow their model, especially as so many clubs have shown how successful it can be. I guess maybe they are and it isn’t as easy as it looks.

Does their London based recruitment area not help a lot?

I don’t think so, I don’t think it’s as much of a pull as people make out - especially when you realise how far out of London most footballers live.

Kind of like how all the Manchester and Liverpool players live in Knutsford. I think with their lifestyle they’d rather space for their big houses.

Slightly off-topic but why do footballers who spend so much money and time building palaces in the suburbs not invest properly in security?

I am not blaming them for the thefts but I was amazed that Reece James had little more than a flimsy gate and a few cameras.

I didnt mean it like that, the quality of players out of certain areas just tends to trend higher

Yeah I don’t get why it’s footballers that always seem to be attacked like this

As in the local London catchment produces higher quality players? I don’t think that’d be a factor but don’t really know tbh
