    So he won't be classed as HG in 3 or 4 years once the new regs come in then?

    Nope, since the player would need to be 15 when signed.

    I thought that was the case, bit of a shame when you consider there are strict rules in place for signing players below 16 from abroad (like it's pretty ****ing difficult unless you want to offer their parents a job too like Real Madrid did).

    Dyke obviously trying to force big teams to have English players, but what's the point when all the top ones have inflated prices and wages and often aren't as good as players abroad. Grassroots is so ****ed right now, there are bigger issues further down the chain, local 3G pitches in my area are deserted because you have to pay like £50 an hour for them.

    I know. I get wanting more British players in the league, but we'll just end up with a system like La Liga or the Bundesliga, where the division between the top 7/8 and the rest is massive. The problem is that Dyke is trying to go top down, not bottom up. He should focus on improving the grassroots, which will then lead to more good British players, not just ban non-English players from playing.

    Welbeck always plays well for England, not sure why he can't carry his international form into his domestic form.

    Doubt it to be honest. Probably just a niggle.

    He played full throttle and it seemed like a tactical change rather than a forced one.

    ****ing hope it isn't, need his work rate for the Liverpool game

    At least Sterling looked awful tonight, which gives me hope for the game. Way too selfish and his decision-making was terrible.

    I didn't even know Sterling got the no7 shirt. He was too selfish and was acting like he is Ronaldo. Also he rejected a new Liverpool contract so there will be some tension between him and Rodgers.

    Walcott is an Arsenal veteran he must stay with us
    No let him go or tey to do a swap with Dortmund. 30mill + Walcott for Rues is something I'll do any day.
