Wigan Athletic

Arsenal aside is there a better club on these shores for a talented, yet unknown, quantity or a youngster to go to at this moment in time?

In recent years guys like Palacios, Valencia & Baines have all earned high profile moves as a result of their form at Wigan and if rumours are to be believed Arsenal are on the trail of McCarthy and Rodallega, Figueroa & N'Zogbia might very well move on for big money too.

Despite poor crowds and questions about their viability as a Premiership team I think the are in a very good place in this regard.

The fact that they beat a host of clubs to Victor Moses, coupled with the way the players I mentioned above have come on only backs this up.

It's the sort of example that we should be following (tu)

How can we even come close to following it?

Wigan aren't going for titles, cups and europe every season.

Just ignoring that £30m black hole in our finances then, aye?

Wigan are very good at what they do. Just look at Valencia and Palacios, signed for peanuts and sold for around £28m in total.

There is no reason why we can't send scouts across Europe finding a Valencia or Palacios.

Actually if you look at the guys who've had the most success there, a lot have come from the Americas. Palacios, Thomas, Rodallega, Figueroa....all came from clubs in Central America for relative peanuts. In fact, the cost of all four was more than covered in Palacios' sale to Spurs alone.

Maybe we should move away from premium priced European players and spread our net that little bit further.

We just about cast our net across Britain. What are the chances of going to South America to find some talent?

There is bound to be a number of players in Europe and South America who are more than capable of playing for us.
