English sides no longer look to bring on home brewed players.
Look at Chelseas academy. Look at our under 21 side.
Managers are looking for ready made players from south america and spain ignoring what is under their nose.
Take a risk and blood some of our own and you will be rewarded.

You can't really say that any nation with as rich a footballing culture as England will "never" win another World Cup because nobody knows what changes or the set of circumstances that might exist in ten, twenty or thirty years time. . . It just won't happen anytime soon. The current side is the worst for twenty years and we'll be lucky to make the World Cup in Brazil let alone win it.

Why would Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger, Manuel Pellegrini or Andre Villas Boas care about bringing through young British talent? You could look at board level but even then they're in the business to make money not feed English ambition.

Grass roots is the obvious place to grow. Wilshere, Luke Shaw, Phil Jones. These players are good enough to play a big role in their teams starting XI at a young age so it can be done.

Kids should learn to play the game the right way in their local team with their mates. Kids are signing contracts at 9 years old these days. Nice way to keep the pressures off...

You're right. It seems teams have given up on developing English talent. They develop them to a level where they can sell them for a profit and give foreign kids more first team opportunities. I also think you guys are too rigid with the way you handle youngsters. Raw ability is generally frowned upon in favor of work ethic, yet when these kids are ready for the first team foreign players with flair get signed instead.

Promising players leave
Look at those that left us in last three years
gone to juve barca etc etc
Curse of the instant results culture but it has is and will ruin Englands national side for ever.

And the longer we go without glory the more the pressure will build.
Fergie was given time when we were past twenty years but no England manager will get that luxury

Bye.

Clubs dont care about the national side and managers dont have the time to bring along english talent, its all about results and not about passports.

English players are also overpriced.

Bye? Jesus. If I get banned it will be in three years time. Do you know what can happen in such a long period of time? Your whole life can change in just a week. I am sure that somewhere in Spain back in 2005 a fat drunk said in a spanish forum that the spanish national football team will never win a cup.

Three years is too long. What about Brazil 2014? Maybe a another wager with less drastic stipulations?

The main reason is, they're is far too much surrounding the national side, no other country in the world has as much media surrounding the side as England too. The players are under far too much pressure to preform.
