    oooh, never thought of that!


    Didn't read the article though, can you briefly summarise what the options are, Pete?

    No one knows!

    If freedom of movement is removed there be a huge reduction in European players in English football. Only in a no deal situation of course

    Thanks!

    I reckon it'll be good for the UK National teams but will probably put (even more) a premium on British players for British teams.
    Unless this doesn't affect Wales, Scotland and Norn Iron?

    Do you mean national teams will be better because, for example, more English players will be playing ‘top flight’ football?

    Yes, I'd like to believe it would.

    However, they wouldn't be learning their craft from better European players as they won't be here. One cancels out the other. We'll still be blessed with all the players from non-EU countries which Brexit won't affect.

    Maybe, I suppose...just read ‘the great eastern’s response and he shares my view, I think.
    I think more british players would get a chance of regular top flight football but the standard won’t be as high and therefore I don’t think will impact at all...
    Also, pre-premier league there were only a few ‘foreign’ players about and yet the national teams still didn’t do very well.
