It includes Huth yes. That was overlooked by someone who compared the youth academy system after the Liverpool v Chelsea CL showdown.
I think that was me... and although I'm fairly sure Huth was there, I might have overlooked him. If not, he was there in spirit. I see that Chelsea are completely and utterly tearing that UEFA rule into shreds. The rule is fairly ridiculous, as it essentially allows 18 year olds bought by the club to be referred to as 'home grown'. That doesn't constitute home grown to me. From now on, Chelsea will be linked to every football teenager under the sun, whereas most other clubs will make do with their academies instead.

Good luck to them.

I thought the rule itself was ridiculous. Thought it had good intentions, read up on it and then realised you can get around it buy buying early. They couldn't have made a law based on nationality because of legal reasons ( although the Premier League overlook this regarding rule K3 and rule Q :rolleyes: ). I heard it's to stop the rich clubs getting even more rich. Funny how they decided to implement this limit in when Abramovich took Chelsea, and I guess Real Madrid's big spendings were a dream? :eek:

If you want 'better' homegrown players. Look at the youth league - Southampton and Ipswich have good academies. West Ham may be a good one too.

They won the youth league I think this season and beat Ipswich in the FA Youth Cup in the final. For some reason that's over two legs!

maybe they can't get the funding to hold it somewhere big (i.e. cardiff) so that the location is neutral. also a two leg fixture brings in more money (twice the tickets) i suppose

I agree, you cannot have a rule encouraging the development of local talent, without breaching EU law on the freedom of movement of labour across borders. What we've ended up with is this. The intentions are admirable, but unfortunately it's not not feasible - partly because of the presence of loopholes such as the above.

Hmmm isn't there a rule for youth teams to only have players who live within 3 or 5 miles of their club? Might be old news, but that doesn't take care of population density so you can imagine what I'd mention there.

Calm down, calm down like. He's not that amazing. Only scored 17 goals for Birmingham last season, got injured, and has done sweet nothing for Chelsea all of this season! :p:

The main thing I'm concerned with is having enough strength and depth in the squad and at youth level along regarding the UEFA criteria and having a decent amount of British players too. Plus Forssell has a long term injury which is not recoverable, I think.
