Crewe were surprised not to receive any bids for their young players in the transfer window. It's a bit worrying for young players if the likes of Crewe start to question their strategy.
Q: Can we balance the books at 3,500 attendances?
A from John Bowler (Chairman): No, but out business strategy has always been to balance the books by selling players. We give a lot of tickets away to youngsters in the hope they come and enjoy it. We try to find ways of getting them to adopt Crewe. We were disappointed. We did think we’d get offers and we didn’t. I think it’s the first January I haven’t had another chairman ring me up. We are living in a changing industry, we are looking very seriously about the academy, how it works, can we develop it, what is changing. This is not because we think we have it wrong, but is our strategy good for the future?
Charles Grant (Director): Frankly we need to make transfers in July because that’s how the club works.https://www.cheshire-live.co.uk/sport/f ... e-15848167
