      Great sentiment, now deliver on it! Problem is FA have no power over the Premier League.... and the Prem only ever serve the interest of the big clubs.

      Correct and is funded and run by Sky. The big clubs won't change you only have to look at the transfer window and the need for the clubs quick fix. Rather than nurture young British talent with academies they think throwing big bucks at foreign imports will do the trick. A lot of the time Sky sports blows the transfer window out of all proportion and the fans fall for the hype.
      Until the FA force clubs to play a certain amount of British players (which is probably against employment laws) the amount of homegrown talent will continue to dwindle.
      I've been saying it for ages that the day will come when there are no English players in the premier league.

      As I see it the issue is the coaching and it is widely reported we have inferior numbers of pro grade coaches in this country compared with our European counterparts. Look no further than Gareth Southgate being appointed as the person to oversee coaching and to impose a style of football across our youth development team. Is this really the best coach our national team can source to develop our future players?

      Our players are technically inferior and the only place you find a lot of English players is the championship. Due to the chasm of wealth between the championship and premier league clubs are forced to put ridiculous price tags on their young talent to try and help bridge the financial gap. This creates a situation where Zaha is sold for £15million and Jordan Rhodes £8million the kind of prices you should be paying for a finished product not young players with potential. Young players need to be financially rewarded when they have achieved something not when they are merely showing potential.

      I don't think quotas are the answer and is just sticking a plaster over a much deeper issue. We have to develop players of a sufficient quality in the academies and if good enough these will make the first teams. This is how is works in Spain and they don't seem to be doing too badly internationally

      Also, I heard that Greg Dyke had said that unless the situation changed (paraphrasing here) ' England would struggle to compete' - surely this is happening already?

      Thought we knew all this before and that was primarily why St Georges was developed, ie to train coaches and train people who can then train coaches. We aren't going to match Spain, Germany and France overnight but St Gs is the first step.

      As for his comment that the FA sanctioned the breakaway league primarily for the benefit of England, what a load of tosh. They had no choice as not to do so would almost certainly have meant the top five looking to form a European super league (which effectively the champions league now is).

      I think part off the problem is the players,they work their socks of for their clubs because they get paid thousands but when it comes to stepping up for their country they suddenly Don't give a shit.Blaming the rise in overseas players isn't totally correct as England have been shit since 66 which is long before overseas players came here.

      Partly true, though l don't think we have been shit since 66. We were unlucky to be beaten by West Germany in the 1970 World Cup Finals, and despite not qualifying in 74, remained a force arguably well into the 80's.

      Surely employing Sven and Fabio put us back 10 years.
