Hi Eds/ All,

What is everyone's thoughts on less foreign player now coming through the youth system? What I mean to say is, are there less foreign and more players from England / Home Nations coming through most youth systems rather than stock piling of foreign youngers.

You look at Liverpool for example and the young players looking to break into the first team. Trent-Arnold, Gomez, Solanke and Woodburn.

Is this a result of changes in rules.

It's always been mainly English players coming through, but the top clubs always seemed to sign 17-18 year olds from abroad which blocked the paths of the English lads.

With St George's Park, the new home grown rules, and just a general increase in the quality of English academies; we are now seeing more young English players come through.

20 years ago, the main decent academies in England were Everton, Man United, West Ham and Liverpool.

Nowadays you can add Chelsea, Southampton, Man City, Crewe, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Leicester and Tottenham to that list. Clubs seem to be putting more emphasis on developing there own players.

Sadly though, some clubs have given up on it because they are sick of developing players only to have them poached when they are good enough. Huddersfield are a prime example.

I don't know of any significant rule change I would tend to look more towards the foreign players and the different styles of play having an influence on the younger home nation players which has been a positive. That coupled with the fact we have two sets of world cup winning English players!

It is difficult to see how they can sell, the club is significantly devalued at the moment due to reduced revenue with the ongoing C.V. situation. If FSG want as much money as possible they will have to wait for a better economic environment, that could be another year away.

If C.V. hadn't come along, the club would have been worth the most last summer.

Who is going to buy the club with the current situation going on.

Has anyone noticed that the positioning is no way near as fluid as before. It used to seem like the forwards all swapped round and popped up in each others position. I think against Man U I saw salah and mane switch once, salah was soo wide on the right all game. Maybe it is just a confidence thing and they are just trying to keep it simple to get back into form.

Redman84, what a ridiculous comparison, a striker who deserved to score but didn't had 90mins to prove it. We have not had our 90mins yet and that is the point, we are 10-1 up with 10 minutes to go, we deserve to win. The manager, staff and team deserve to win it, I don't think anyone can argue with that.

Damn Joe Gomez on high injury proneness, breaking his ankle every few months! Maybe he is really clumsy.

Even when you think back to the days of terraces, the vast majority of matches had absolutely no incidents. The disasters that did happen were due to miss management and not correctly managing the crowd.

Smaller allocated blocks would be safer and could be managed much better. We also do not have the enclosed pens with high fences.

If we were to not do things ever again after miss managed failures we wouldn't do things like fly on a plane.

Just my opinion but I can completely understand people's reservations, particularly the people of Liverpool who have been so badly affected by Hillsborough.

I think it can be safe if it is well managed. Stadium safety has improved massively over the past couple of decades that I think we should give it a chance.

I am not saying he doesn't deserve to me on more, he does. But are we talking about him earning double what Van Dijk, Mane, Alison are on? If we are, are they going to be happy? U also need a good/ motivated team to win trophies not just one happy well paid superstar.

It's very difficult, the club could probably afford the wages for 1 player. But what happens when all the other players expect to be paid more than they are currently are relative to salah.

Not as easy as just pay him what he wants.

It could mean the player is becoming bigger than the club.

I think Mane has been very good this season.
