The Premier League is considered one of the best in the world, the best managers, the best players, the best stadiums are all in England with the few exceptions. You could also argue that it is the most competitive league in the world.
There is an argument though to suggest with such a hugely rich league that the national team is becoming an utter failure. The players don’t care, the manager isn’t right and the fans feel alienated.
To look at how the top clubs are failing their homegrown talent, Chelsea are a prime example they have a huge 14 English players out on loan, and they are talented players too.
Tammy Abraham is tearing up the Championship at the moment playing for Bristol City. Lewis Baker is still at Vitesse and performing well, getting himself into the England under-21 side. Kasey Palmer who’s on loan at Huddersfield and has made 21 appearances this season.
This is just one example of the big clubs having their young talent stifled by big price tags and which you could argue can just as easily become flops as they can become stars.
The Premier League has ceased to be a breeding ground of English talent, the likes of the Class of ’96 will not be seen again if this buying culture continues.
There has to be ups and downs that is the way of the game in football, we need these young stars to come through to make England a strong team again. World football needs a strong England, at the moment England are weak and a disappointment to the nation.
We are 18 months away from the next World Cup, Southgate must take a gamble bring in the youth, Rooney’s time has run out, Cahill is not good enough and Jordan Henderson has given nothing to the team.
