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!

Sturridge will be gone in the summer, sadly he doesn't fit in with what we are doing here and his wages would be better use elsewhere.

He is a good player but does not play enough through injury or being protected from injury etc, that just means he is not value for money.

I was about to write exactly the same thing Salah, contracts mean nothing other than the player being guaranteed to earn a certain amount of money for a certain length of time.

Isn’t it more about player registration. There are 2 deadline a years, at the end of each window for players to be registered with the FA. If they are not registered by this date they cannot play for the club until the next registration window is open. The only except is free agents, who if they were a free agent at the registration deadline, they can sign and register for a club.

Piffmunda

{Ed002's Note - No, it is as I said. It depends when he becomes a free agent. If, for example, Lazar Markovic were to come to agreement with Liverpool of October 1 that they were to end their relationship and he were to become a free agent, he cannot sign with Olympiakos until January 1 when the Greek transfer window opens. However, should Lazio decide they wish to sign Ross Turnbull, they can do so now as he was a free agent during the previous transfer window.}

Does he have a white bmw, because he was causing a massive traffic problem on the A1 this afternoon.

Surely Reading can't afford his wages? Although they need some help staying in the Championship.

{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced Fellaini could raise his game to reach Championship level.}

People have short memories, this is probably the best team we have had in 10 years. We are qualifying for the champions league every year, we had hardly been in it for the previous 10 years and everyone was saying that is the target, we have a achieved that target and are looking to push onto the next level. We have achieved a much better consistency and continue to get to finals (I know we have not won any but it will happen if we get behind the team) .

Some of the so called 'fans' need to get off the players back, maybe some are feeling the pressure that is coming from you guys and the media.

WE ARE 1 POINT BEHIND, CHILL!

Is it the end of the world if we do not win the league this year, it is what I say.

We have a great squad and manager, we have moved to the next level as a club and continue to evolve.

I am happy we are competing, if we do not win it this year let's build on what we have over the summer, move some of the squad players on and add a little quality to the setup. We will have a great chance of winning it next year or the year after.

The fact is if we can get the point we get this year over any of the next few seasons, we will win the league at some point.

Look at the Man City squad, theirs much deeper in quality and pep is not a bad manager, they were always going to be difficult to beat.

I think he has struggled because I put him in my fantasy football team at xmas. I took mane out and put Salah in, guess what Salahs scoring has slowed and mane can't stop scoring. So basically it is my fault. I took aubameyang out last week.

I do not know much about this but are players wages available to the public? Seems odd that we would be able to find out exactly how much each player earns.

Do you think different club weight how the players earning are paid. For example club A may heavily pay on apperances but club B may weight it more on standard weekly amount?

{Ed002's Note - The contracts vary, but the accounts show the amounts paid. Clubs are required to declare this because of major issues in the past with image rights (n longer an issue in England but it is elsewhere).}

He may add 5 to 10 goals. But he does not track back and therefore we will concede more.

He does not suit our team.
