How can football square that outside of the football world it does not make sense morally. In fact tough to justify it at all.
It will never in a million years happen, but I would cap the wages to a less immorally reprehensible amount and let the so called better players feck off abroad if they so wish.

I guarantee you it would not diminish our enjoyment of the game in England one iota, and might actually enhance the national side as it would lead to more youth products being blooded. I’ve said it before, but football doesn’t have to be played at that high a standard for it to be a highly entertaining spectacle. It’s the other things like the spectators, tribal rivalry, league system and history that gets the body tingling with excitement.

I know intellectually when I’m watching Man City that I’m watching an exceptional level of football being played but sorry, it leaves me utterly cold. Wimbledon back in the day excited me more.
