A player will have to have been registered with his club from the age of 15 - a drop from the current age of 18 - to qualify as 'home-grown'.

The minimum number of home-grown players in a club's first-team squad of 25 will increase from eight to 12, phased over four years from 2016.

At least two home-grown players must also be 'club-trained' players - defined as any player, irrespective of nationality, that has been registered for three years at their current club from the age of 15.

Only the best non-EU foreign players will be granted permission to play in England, with the process for dealing with appeals to be tightened.


The above are a selection of new proposals outlined by the FA to help English players.

While I welcome the proposals, at the back of my mind I fear this will bump up the prices for average English players even more so..

"Only the best non-EU foreign players" and how is that factor going to be decided?

Also on the flip side, it'll mean English teams doing even worse in Europe (probably)

I generally don't support tokenism. You should be good enough to play for the top teams, not because a quota has limited the foreign players.

The transfer fees for English players are already ridiculous. That plus wages create a culture where the player feels he's "made it" before he's really achieved anything. Players like Scott Sinclair are signed cynically to meet FFP quotas and their development stalls - is that what should be encouraged? The cream will always rise to the top, and that's the type of player England needs anyway.

That's my argument aswell - look at Scott Sinclair and Jack Rodwell. Both signed to meet a quota and both have their promising careers stopped. Fact is it's a squad game. I don't think.

Plus imo the root of the problem is the quality of coaching - we lack good quality coaches throughout English football, which stops players unleashing that extra 10/20% at a young age.

I've somewhat uneasily come around to the idea of a quota.

Club owners are so short-termist now that they're more willing to stump up £10m on a new player than have the manager bring up a youth player, and the league has hollowed out as a result of the new TV deals whereby there's virtually no teams at the start of the season who can guarantee that they'll be neither finishing in the European places nor going down. Mid-table teams have historically often been the ones to blood future England internationals, and hopefully this will give them a kick up the backside.
