Personal Quotes (2)

I fear England are going the way of the Republic of Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
English players are not getting enough first-team time in the Premier League. We're going backwards from 1990 and the era of Paul Gascoigne and that 'conveyor belt of talent'. Simply, the Premier League is riddled with average foreign players. This is having such a detrimental effect on the first-team opportunities for young English talent, and our international results.
