Now that the attention has turned to the 2010/2011 campaign I must ask which club will be the most impacted by the “home-grown player” quota for next season.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with this new rule that was agreed to by all EPL teams, here is a quote from Chief executive Richard Scudamore;
“As of next season clubs will be required to have a squad named of up to 25 players, of which no more than 17 can be over the age of 21 and not home grown. The definition of home grown is trained for three years under the age of 21 by somebody in the English and Welsh professional system.”
We all understand the reasoning behind a move like this and how it will protect football in the long run, but how will this impact your team? I’m sure the lawyers will find loopholes in the language, that is their job, but looking at it from this perspective it begs the question, who will be impacted the most?
So we decided to make a poll of it. Let us know what you think.
