England has 92 professional league clubs. Why have we not produced a talent like Gazza over the 25 years since he burst on the scene.
Why since 1970 has a small country like Holland have produced far more world class outfield players than us.
Its about time the FA took the bull by the balls and got Johann Cruyff or even German coaches in to develop a national strategy on training youngsters to at least be proficient at kicking the ball with both feet (I hate it when commentators telling us that it was on a players wrong foot).
Isn't that what St George' Park is going to about at Burton. It's just that we are 25 years behind everyone. To be honest in Holland, what else is there to do apart from smoke weed, make clogs or farming....They have got to be good at something.
I finally agree with Sepp Blatter, we need to decide a game by something other than penalties, cos we may never win a penalty shoot out again.
Why couldn't it be decided with a good old fashioned game of Darts, England bringing on super sub Phil Taylor onto the oche marked out in the middle of the pitch. It would only take them a couple of minutes to bring on a board....come on Fifa.
