    Don't quote me but I think you can contract players to an Accadamy for up to 2 years at a time. During the time they are contracted the compensation per year is higher.

    That's why it's now compensation at fixed rates. In a lot of the world parents pay clubs to have players in Accadamies. Smaller clubs need compensation for their investment otherwise they wouldn't run age group sides. The alternative would be charging the going rate for their coaching.

    Lower league clubs are simply nurseries for the top clubs but hasn't it always been like that?

    To a degree you are right.

    What used to happen was that when players proved themselves in the league (Earle, Beckford, Horton etc) then they would get a move to a bigger club.

    I have no problem with that. We had a few good years out of them and made a decent profit. But to spend time and money on these kids from an early age and to have them snatched away for a pittance before we even see any benefits of our labour is not on.

    All we will always be left with are the kids who are probably not going to make it in the pro game. I don’t see how that benefits Vale, apart from having a feather in the Acadamy cap for producing these lads that move on.

    But that does not help produce potential players for the first team. And surely that should be the end aim.

    Interesting article about academy compensation and possible downfalls in the system.

    How many 1st and 2nd division players make it to the Premiership or the Championship come to that? Not many .....

    Yes of course and the rest of the time we've had to sell.

    Why didn't they ask the boy's father why does he want to join a new club every year or two?

    My take on the article is that the 15 year has an old head on young shoulders. What he needs is a mature head to advise him rather better than hitherto.

    We offered him a deal but when the big boys come calling its difficult to keep hold.

    At that age it's not talent, it's potential. If teams want to pay for youngsters then so be it and chuck a clause in there relating to senior appearances.

    Huddersfield are one of those clubs like Brentford who realised their academy couldn't compete with the more conventional ones the bigger clubs run, so they scrapped a lot of their lower age teams and they now only take on players post 16.

    These days, if one of your players gets poached there's nothing that you can do. The fees these days are based on a set formula which the bigger clubs managed to get set at a low level in exchange for a larger solidarity payment across the board.
