With advances in technology and the almost instant internet access of today, the impact of social media on football is an issue that has already been quite significant and is bound to be discussed further in the future.
With Financial Fair Play (FFP) soon to be introduced, the emphasis on seeking and developing talent is sure to be far greater than before, certainly for those clubs that don't have rights to the lucrative parachute payment handed to those who have suffered relegation from the Premier League.
