Teams: Roma, Arsenal
Only 81 English players used this past weekend out of 278 players used in total in the EPL. That figures is just 29% and is once again on decline from last year. This with the fact that there are also very few English players abroad in other leagues means a bleak future IMO.
Rob your observation above may well be true in some cases regarding the best player of Serbia being better than the 151st Englishman, but it is hindering the English game and at grass roots level as now very few players can make the grade. I often hear if they are good enough they will make it, but I believe there are several players who do not just because they never get the opportunity to play at the top level.
