Watford Observer: On this day in south west Hertfordshire On this day in south west Hertfordshire

‘There is not, never has been, and never will be, a player worth £10,000!” With this statement, made by Sir Charles Clegg, President of the Football Association, at the annual meeting of the Sheffield United FC, there will be very hearty and general agreement. The ridiculously inflated transfer fees paid in recent years are doing no good to the game or to the players either.
