I read that Sepp Blatter has stuck his oar in again and is pushing for clubs to have a five "foreign" player restriction on the playing field.
This will give the national side a better chance of winning things and allow home-grown players a chance to progress and not be held back by the foreign players coming to these shores.
WHAT A LOAD OF BOLLOCKS!!!!
I'm fed up with this shit. It is not the foreign players faults that England have continuously failed at the major tournament's we compete in. It go's way back beyond that. If anything, players from abroad can only IMPROVE us.
It's about time that us English pulled our heads from our arse's and realised that we are not as good as we think we are.
The media hype us up and set us up for the fall every single time. We are the Tottenham of the international level.
We are light years behind the likes of France, Germany, Italy, Spain (shall I go on?) It begins at grass-roots levels where we are inferior and it continues further through the age progression.
It's time that we took responsibility for a change instead of blaming our own failings on others. Of course it's easy to do that. Lets blame everyone else for being shit, that's the easy way out.
The day that us English admit our own failings is the day that we can start to improve and get on par with the countries mentioned.
We are stuck in the 1960's. Football has moved on since we won the World Cup. It's been 42 years. How long has it been since the proper foreign "invasion"? Around 5-10 years maybe? How was England doing from 1966 until then? Not very well.
So lets take responsibility ourselves. Change the way we coach our kids. Then we will start to do well.
If an English player is good enough, then he will get in the side. Why should teams be forced to play an average English player over a talented foreigner? It's stupid logic and won't improve our national side.
We need to sort out our method's and get to reality. We are not good enough.
By reducing the amount of foreign players to each team will just make the Premiership a poorer place. At the moment it is arguably the most exciting and elite league in Europe. Foreigner's have helped the Premiership. Lets not reduce the quality of it.
We can get more English players coming through, lets go about it the right way. Starting at grass-roots. Then you're see the best and most natural way for English players to become world beaters. Maybe we can stop using foreigners as scape-goats then!!
Keep it Goonerish.........
