Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
No, pfr, I don't think thats the case. The problems start much, much earlier, with school and age group football. This is dominated by the biggest and strongest. I remember when Cesc Fabregas came to Arsenal at 16, fabulous player then, and I thought then that if he was English he would have been kicked out of the game years before. The top clubs hire top foreign players because they have to.
