At least 8 must have spent at least 3 years between the ages of 16 and 21 training with an English or Welsh club. These qualify as “homegrown” players, regardless of whether they are originally English or Welsh, or whether those 3 years were actually spent at their current club.

Arsenal have around 12/13 "Home Grown" players in the squad.

Newcastle fielded 6/7 english players at Wolves!

I hope the rule comes in for that.. having atleast 6 english players in the team or whatever it was.

I am aware of that, but i loled at the fact its called "homegrown" when they clearly are not "homegrown" the rule should be british players

Yet you have only named 7 and will likely be punished

Arsene Wenger has named 20 first team players, and 7 home grown players.

The club haven’t reached the maximum of 25 first-team players, so they were only required to include seven home grown players under the new ruling.

Forgot alot of them are under 21.

But half of the proper 1st team squad would qualify for the "home grown" rule.

I hope this rule is a stepping stone to stricter rules, as it seems a bit of a joke.

Im not sure why the F.A. would want to destroy the Premier League with rules regarding, having to field english players. The day they do, is the day the best league in world football dies.

Sure it hampers the national team, but who the hell likes international football these days anyway.

I'd be happy with 50% English starting line up, no more though

Gradually implemented over next 5 years


Unless your a big team, your pretty screwed if that did happen. From the little amount of half decent english players that are available, the smaller teams would be left with the dregs, The gulf would be massive.

Such a rule wouldnt benefit anyone, except the english players, who would bank even more money, than they already deserve.

The smaller teams get left behind every year when the big four splash out on foreign talent.

Alot of teams have spent just as much as the big four over the last 5 years (except money city). The rule platini is phasing in, that you can only spend what you earn, makes much more sense. Sure it wont happen right away, but give it time and there should not be such a gulf.

Lol, its not the best anymore, Kaka, Ronaldo and Messi, the 3 best players in the world all play in La liga (along with most of the players who just won the world cup) and the Serie A is by far the most competitive, take away Milan, Inter and Roma and theres about 7 teams who can realisticly take the 4th champions league slot, the Premier league is losing its grip.

Swear i read chelsea have named only 4 in a 19 man squad lol.

Btw dont spanish teams have some sort of rule similar to this?? or am i just making this up lol

Micoo surely it should be English players and not British players since its the English Premier League.

I like the way an English international footballer is considered a foriegn player, Owen Hargreaves.

Here's a list of the squads

Personally I don't think restricting the amount of foreign players will have any impact at either club or national level.

It is to do with how much each club has to spend IMO, if this rule comes in Man City could buy the 11 best English players in the premiership leaving all the other teams with scraps. How does that help the league or national team.

A restriction needs to be placed on how much each team can spend each season, this way the likes of Man City cannot just buy whoever they like then.

If English players are good enough they get to play, unfortunately clubs with unlimited spending powers will then buy the best which at the moment tend to be foreign.

I don't get how they work it out?

Owen Hargreaves isn't home grown despite playing for England?

So you dont think "England FC" (AKA Man City under your scenario) playing week in week out would be of benefit to the national side?

Well, from newcastle's POV. They would certainly survive on the premier league IMO.

Wage caps, and purchase caps should be introduced.

28th Aug - English people in Starting lineups.

Blackburn - 2
Arsenal - 1 (3 in the full 18 man squad)
Blackpool - 6
Fulham - 3
Chelsea - 3
Stoke - 7
Tottenham - 6
Wigan - 1 - Boyce (Declared for Barbados)
Wolves - 6
Newcastle - 8
Man utd - 3
West ham - 6

I don't believe If it was 5-6 players in starting lineup's, it would have a major effect on the smaller clubs. If anything, it's a negative effect on the likes of arsenal.

29th August

Bolton - 4
Birmingham - 7
Liverpool - 3
West Brom - 3
Sunderland - 8
Man City - 6
Aston Villa - 6
Everton - 5

If the english teams in the champions league fielded mostly english or british players, you could bet that they wouldnt be doing as well. However Arsenal were excellent tonight and Wilshere was a standout.
