For once I agree with you Matt. Like other Prem. Clubs, we should look to recruit young talent from the Championship and the other leagues and develop them which no doubt would be much cheaper and probably develop more team spirit and loyalty for giving them a chance.

Well a quick check of the squad on the offy shows the likes of Green, Walker and Davies recruited into the Academy from lower divisions and in the first team squad we have recruited Phillips, Lewis, Dunn, Perenise and Walker from clubs below the Prem

Not a bad record IMHO

The mighty, all conquering Exeter started their recruitment strategy further down the pecking order and fair play to them for that - from were we are we need a sensible balance of hyper stars, established quality and young potential or risk slipping a long way down if we put most of our eggs into young talent from the Championship
