How would you feel if UEFA (legally).......

Implemented a rule not too dissimilar to their old “3 foreigners" rule?

For example if your club played in the English League, at least 6 of the players on the pitch at any one time (apart from when a player has been red carded) has to qualify to play for the country they were playing in?!

How damaging to our Premier League would that be?

It would probably make already average players even more expensive.

Wouldnt something like this go against immigration laws or something

Do you mean discrimination law?

It has nothing to do with immigration law.

That too.

What if a player gets citizenship after joining the club?

Unless they were already entitled to apply for a British passport on the grounds of descent, for example, they would need to have been in the country for five years before they could apply for citizenship.

The restrictions proposed would not impact or be impacted by immigration law.

If this idea, noble in its endeavour were implemented, would result in a drop in quality of footballers. Drop in quality would lead to a drop in income and there the story would end. For club owners that's the bottom line, money. Nothing else matters.

And what if the idea was implemented in bonny Jockland? With the sale of football pitches for youths to play on, commented on by no less a figure than our King Kenny in his homeland in Glasgow, with absolutely no talent to match his, or Souness, or Jocky coming through, could Scottish football actually get even worse?

And who's to say it isn't happening south of the border? The sheer number of foreign players alone dictates reality. We are simply not producing the youngsters with the sufficient skill here in the U.K. to make the idea viable.

Apologies about the negativity.

An event considered under immigration law.

But what does it have to do with the rule proposed above?

Under current EU regulations we cannot prevent players from other EU countries coming to ply their trade here.
It will be very interesting to see how that holds up when we leave the EU.
Blimey , does that mean Brexit holds the answer

Apart from a few of the clubs at the top of the Scottish Premier League it pretty much happens already. I go to watch Hibs a fair bit since I moved up here (ST holder) and most of the time about 9 in the team are Scottish, as is most of the bench. Since the end of the ITV and Setanta deals in Scottish Football the money here is no where near what the clubs have down south. Hibs could barely compete with League 1 clubs for players for example.
