Hi Eds/ All,

What is everyone's thoughts on less foreign player now coming through the youth system? What I mean to say is, are there less foreign and more players from England / Home Nations coming through most youth systems rather than stock piling of foreign youngers.

You look at Liverpool for example and the young players looking to break into the first team. Trent-Arnold, Gomez, Solanke and Woodburn.

Is this a result of changes in rules.

It's always been mainly English players coming through, but the top clubs always seemed to sign 17-18 year olds from abroad which blocked the paths of the English lads.

With St George's Park, the new home grown rules, and just a general increase in the quality of English academies; we are now seeing more young English players come through.

20 years ago, the main decent academies in England were Everton, Man United, West Ham and Liverpool.

Nowadays you can add Chelsea, Southampton, Man City, Crewe, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Leicester and Tottenham to that list. Clubs seem to be putting more emphasis on developing there own players.

Sadly though, some clubs have given up on it because they are sick of developing players only to have them poached when they are good enough. Huddersfield are a prime example.

I don't know of any significant rule change I would tend to look more towards the foreign players and the different styles of play having an influence on the younger home nation players which has been a positive. That coupled with the fact we have two sets of world cup winning English players!

You seem to forget all the good that Klopp is doing.

I forgot, you were perfect and are all seeing and all knowing.

Oh and by the way,

Do you know if we are getting a ban or not? it's just no one has asked it the last 10 minutes and I think everyone might be getting worried something has changed in the last 10 minutes and we do not know about it.

Haha.

Hopefully. I don’t know what is next if it is just the same old.

Don’t worry. I was not defending him. I was trying to make the point that stats can be used to persuade away from truth in some cases, example, where someone pick 2 random stats out and all of a sudden that is considered proof to an argument/ opinion. I am sure that the stats will say Mignolet makes us a worth team overall but I am sure there are many cases where a player has had some poor stats / records but then has come good in a different system etc. Put Mignolet in a team which plays generally more defensive and his stats would be better, that is guaranteed.

The problem is with stats, and this is in all walks of life, you can find some stat to back up pretty much any opinion if you look hard enough. I am sure if I looked, I could find a few positive stats for Mignolet.

This post made me chuckle. When has a solution ever been to bring in an ex-player who has little or no proven coaching ability to sort problems out. Can you name an example of this working out, maybe one of the Eds can. Unless this post was to provoke a reaction, which if it was then well played, you got me.
