It would be fair if they reintroduced transfer fees. When a player has been given a good grounding and given experience by a club and his contract ends then there should be a compensation payment to the original club based on the number of years he has been with them when the big boys come to 'pinch' him. Either that or allow a clause in the original contract that the player can't leave without a payment being made for his services. I know the laws of the land forbid it under employent regulations but a bit of fairness would help clubs who in the past survived on transfer fees. Now they are just going down the drain.

There can be a way around the law so that we could have transfer fees and go back to the old tribunal system:- At present the money from Sky is shared out equally to all clubs in a particular league or division. Is it legally binding that the money is shared out equally? If not, we could return to a voluntary tribunal system which would not be legally binding, but those clubs refusing to pay the figure set by tribunal could have their Sky money reduced!

The success at Leeds was built on a strong commitment over years to Friday night games.

This connected to people who are already in Leeds for work. Add to that, finishing off a working week with a game, hospitality food and drink and the weekend then being free has been a real success.

Having said that, went to watch a Saturday junior game last season and could not get a warm drink or a bite to eat. Not a member of the catering staff on duty. We all put it down to a club making too much money.

That answers it then,apart from the Cafe bar,which is only open on match days,there is nowhere to get hot drinks etc,it's all outside caterers.

Can you get a pass-out to get to these outside caterers ?  Like you do at the cricket ?
