Modern day player loyalty.. nonexistent??

I know I may be as they say "peeing in the wind' with this but I feel that the Premier league need to take action to get players to show something in the way of loyalty to the clubs that employ them.

How on earth is any club supposed to challenge the money clubs without being given the chance to develop players from their youth systems or by taking a punt on buying players as we did with Bale, Walker, Naughton, Dawson Lennon and so many others and spend years trying to nurture their talent if it exists.

We tie them into long contracts only for them to be torn up in front of our faces when a bigger club asks for them and yet we all know that for every Bale there are at least 10 failures. I ask you if you were on a contract at work would you be allowed to just break it and move wherever you like?? I don't think so! and we are only talking about t 10;s thousands not millions!! If Bale or Modric leave Spurs at the end of this year it will be yet another slap in the face for the club and supporters in their attempt to build/follow a squad skilful enough to challenge for the top spot.

The supporters deserve so much credit for continuing to sell out White Hart Lane every game, year in year out regardless of whether we are high flying or not and deserve to have the Premier league protect the clubs these players are employed by. Why is it that the league allow players to sign contracts and then refuse to play, ala Berbatov and sit on the bench sulking because he says 'cos my head is not right!!" how many of us could get away with going to work on a Monday and saying to our boss 'my heads not right so I am unable to work today' without being told to get lost and pick your cards up from HR!!!

The only players that are loyal are players that play for those top clubs or those that are not good enough to play for the top clubs. There is a middle ground but these guys think they should be playing for the top teams but are not good enough. (Sidwell and Parker at Chelsea as an example) I am asking for the league to ensure that clubs are protected when a player is in contract with the club. see it out or rot in the reserves with no pay!!! Let`s see how many refuse to play then!!
