Actually being based in Manchester is an advantage as they can pull from the league clubs in England like they've done with Rochdale. Ottawa being based in Canada will make it harder for them to attract players. Being based in Canada they can't start an academy because it's too expensive and league barely even exists in Ontario with only two league clubs. Where will the players come from without juniors coming through? Which is why I stress they develop the game at a junior level but there definitely apathy they would rather sponsor yawnion events, disappointing.
