Casestudy: Why the wealth of England is having a negative impact on the future of our International football.
A lot of discussions are now bringing up the subject: Why are we so bad when we should be so good? So I thought i'd create this discussion to bring together all our thoughts and theories. The key theory seems to be related to greed. With the crazy amounts of money football generates in our country, you'd expect it to pay off on the international front. Not the case. Instead, the race to be the best is now having a very negative impact on English football. English talent is failed to be seen due to the amount of foreign players purchased by clubs who put instant success ahead of the future. This is a vicious circle in which young English stars fail to penetrate because when the future arrives, the chairmans cheque book comes out again. The desire to do well see's clubs bringing in the best players available - leaving our young potentials on the bench or in the dark. Why waste your time on academies if you can get a player-to-go for several million. In summary - the problem we have is that English football is failing because it is no longer English. What are your views?
