  1. Or maybe that in itself tells its own tale and the theory you have just highlighted is nothing more than the biggest white elephant in the history of our sport!!!
  2. If the hard facts are that there are 8 super clubs then as a sport we should do something like this if we want to move forward.Give say 10 approximately £2,250,000 each a season (£22.5 million), only allow one overseas player per squad to promote the opportunities for English players and the best youth in the country.
