    Bollocks. He's shite. But the real problem is that only 34% of players in the Prem are English. Should be no more than 3 foreigners in a Prem squad if you want a decent England team. Looking at Wembley tonight, I don't think many people give a shit anyway.
    How's that going to help? All you'll get is rank average teams. Playing with better players can only be good for development. To improve British players, you need to invest in coaches, move away from results and competition for those at a very easy age and move away from the physical game that we see every week.

    It's no surprise we're so far behind countries that play the game with the ball on the ground and lose as soon as we come up against a decent team.
    Well, actually playing in your team helps. It's no good playing in a team of one englishman and 10 foreigners like Arsenal had a few years ago. The England manager has to have a pool to pick from. In La Liga 95% of the players are Spanish, it hasn't hurt them much.
