How long will it be until investment is made?


Looking at Clarkey's words about the ambition that Huddersfield show and their ability to offer a 3 year contract I wondered how long it would be, if ever, foreign investment will be made into the leagues outside the premiership in England.

Obviously QPR have had some of the wealthiest individuals come into their club and they are in a prime location for these 'joy riders' in West London.

But, with our move to Fossetts and with us still in League 1 it just begs the question can you see the possibility of investment in 'smaller' clubs such as Southend in the coming years?

There have been a lot of changes in football in recent years with ownership and positions with in clubs. The money in the top leagues is seemingly spiralling out of control. No one can justify £500k a week for a player.

Would you support big money investment in lower league football possibly bringing in more big names with less passion, more foreign players, or would you prefer to keep it as we are with trophies and league position meaning a lot to clubs meaning extra income that is so valuable to some clubs with more and more moving into administration in the last few years.
