And only about 5 who are/were good enough to ever break into the Chelsea first team and have a big future

At least 15 have played premier league football with many others having found their level in the lower leagues. That may not seem a lot but in an industry were only the elite get to make it as a professional footballer its a decent return. The academy is doing its job and should be praised, we are now producing the next generation of players for a game we all love.

This is the sort of thing that'd look nice done in old, seasoned wood with gold leaf lettering somewhere at the Bridge, along with one at Cobham updated every time one of the kids makes their first team debut.

The current market value of those 5 or so, added to the fees received via sales, has probably seen Cobham self sufficient, or maybe even turning a profit, for a while now.
