I am sure Chelsea must make decent money from their academy as players who do not make it at Chelsea could be sold for a lot of money.

The problem is a very simple one. A club like say Southampton give youngsters a chance. However, if Southampton finish in the top ten in the premier league everyone is content.

On the other hand, if Chelsea do not win a major trophy every season and do not do well in the Champions League season after season all hell breaks loose. Needless to say it is much easier for a youngster to break into say Southampton's first team than it is to get into Chelsea's first team
Purely by chance, on Tuesday night when we beat Southampton 4-2 they had two ex Chelsea youngsters playing for them and they scored both their goals, but would they be good enough to get into our first team ? and therein lies the problem.

The fact is that we have played Manchester City in the last three youth cup finals and beaten them all three times. Yesterday we won 5-1 and totally destroyed them, Those boys playing for us last night are very valuable assets indeed.
