Via The Two Unfortunates

icon transfers4 November ~ English football is currently debating how to improve the fortunes of the national team, with many suggestions focusing on increasing the number of homegrown players in the Premier League. However, as John McGee points out for The Two Unfortunates, the trickle-down effect of the Bosman ruling and free movement of labour has helped to improve all levels of the English game. Clubs such as Swindon, Walsall and Carlisle are able to take advantage of the good quality players who don't make it at the top level, either on loan or through signings, to improve their own playing style.
