  • Now this is good news and a sensible judgment. Smaller clubs (and you will know who I have in mind (3-0 home win last night – hurrah!) frequently invest in training local talent because they can't afford to buy top class players, but then see their best young players taken by larger clubs (although this can be a useful source of income). This judgment will protect the smaller clubs' interests whilst still allowing free movement of talent. I wonder if this judgment will extend to other sports too?
