Arsenal has an awesome youth system. Won nothing in 7 years. Liverpool 15 years ago had the best youth system in Europe. Won nothing but cups since. Barely any youth systems work here, because of poaching. As soon as a 15 year old talent is spotted, he's poached abroad - some to England, some away. They suffer from home sickness, and doesn't play to the best of their ability. Doesn't give young English players a chance to shine. That's one of the advantages of being based in Holland instead of England. That and the easier competition.
Sorry man, But I believe your argument is the bullshit one. However, we will never know for sure, just make almost certain assumptions...
