I've posted this on the Steve L Forum so, hopefully, we can see the true cost of developing our home grown talent.

Can you please inform us of the actual cost of the Academy since it's inception.

This would be the net cost, less grants-sponsorship, etc.

Can you also advise which players, currently in the first team squad or those that have been sold, were genuine Academy products.

By genuine, I exclude Marvin & Aaron Brown (Football in the Community YTS Sceme), Leroy Lita & Simon Clist who signed when exited by Chelsea & Tottenham.

My feeling is that the costs vastly outweigh the benefits and a more fruitful policy would be to sign the "rejects" or reserves from Premier Division Clubs.

Players such as Andy Cole (£500k Arsenal-Sold £1,750,000)Scott Murray (£150k -Villa-Sold £650k)

Thanks in advance
