It's just crazy.

Almost.............it's Sky TV revenues that are donated to Premier clubs that allow them to spend at that level

Was listening to a podcast yesterday, and one of the people on it said that the next time the TV deal is up for renewal that he expects Sky to not be able to match the offer from one of the on-line companies (Amazon probably).
The bubble will burst at some point, as the current situation becomes unsustainable. You can see some of it now - players no longer required at a Premier League club but the club cannot move them on due to needing to recoup some sort of fee and then the player wages.

This is why England team is crap.
How you gonna be elite competitive if your goalkeeper is surplus and on loan to Torino, and one of your better midfielders is loaned out to Bournemouth.
How the hell can two players like that be not wanted and loaned out.

TV money is everything. You have to stay in the Premiership which is why they pay big bucks for some mediocre players to try and ensure they stay there. Just look what happens to the teams who do go down. They have 'parachute' money for a couple of years but if they don't get promoted they end up forever chasing elusive dreams. Now with foreign ownership employing foreign managers and demanding success, this is why they pay stupid money and wages to top overseas players and the true home of English football runs from the Championship through to grass roots. England will never be an international force again until there are major changes. Maybe Brexit will help but they will find ways around employing 'foreign' workers.

Not sure about the Joe Hart situation, but Jack was loaned out to get competitive game time so he can prove his fitness. He is not likely going to get the consistant amount of playing time at Arsenal as he is at Bournemouth.

Their style of play will suit him (and vice versa), but it is a little disappointing he didn't choose to play abroad. One of the many criticisms of English players is their reluctance to try and play abroad.

Not sure I completely agree with this. England have been slow to realise that the way junior football is played does little to encourage players to improve their ability. 11 a side is (or until recently was) the main standard which does little to allow players to learn and practice new skills.

Compare that with German, Spanish and Dutch methods - small, short games with emphasis on 1 or 2 touch.

Players are also expected to train themselves - look at Santi Cazorla for example. Spent hours passing the ball to a wall with one foot then the other. Practises dead ball situations with both feet. Not one person knows if he is left or right footed.

Which produces the tippy tappy style with players needing to get into the 6 yard box before attempting a shot on goal.
