Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been linked again with a 10mil move for Arsenal, makes me think Southampton seem to have quite a decent academy, Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott to name a few from there, i wonder why that is
Regional advantage, I live in Devon and all the talent down hear gets snapped up by Southampton or Bristol City. That includes Devon, Cornwall, Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Somerset, Avon, etc (maybe even Oxfordshire and Berkshire). Whereas Everton have to compete with the shite, uts, city amongst many other teams. That's what I assume you were getting at?
