@heinrich moller how dare you? How very dare you? LOL Seriously though, you are right spot on I would say. This 'development' plan which F365 seemed to know about but not fully inform us on should be looked at. England don't need to rip up everything they just need to have a purpose. One purpose the Premier League needs to understand that is having your own national team just qualifying for tournaments is not enough and more help is needed to bring through more English players in the Premier league. Players like Shaw maybe good in the short term but with their excessive wage demands will only hamper more clubs signing English players. The Premier League is certainly strong and entertaining but it needs to offer something for its national team, maybe a set of guaranteed places for English players in Premier league clubs?
