Hear that? ... That's the sound of progress.
Lots of catching up to do for England, Spain, Holland, etc are years ahead in terms of youth development, but its a start.
Italy have some very good youngsters coming through but the clubs there seem to prefer to play the old players till they get buried. A reason fro their failure in the World Cup
Why are English players so expensive? That's another reason why English players aren't being developed, managers are constantly being put off English players due to their price tag. Loads of players in the Championship who could play in the Prem if they weren't so expensive.
