Sepp Blatter, in my opinion a man who tinkers with our beloved game just for the sake of it, is at it again.
This time it is reported that the 71-year-old Fifa President wants to take on the EU and enforce a change that limits clubs to no more than five foreigners in any teams starting line-up.
Allegedly, he believes that this will allow home grown talent to thrive, whereas the current situation of ‘no limit’ is not good for the games development or indeed for the education of young players.
Blatter has been a controversial figure in the football world for many a year now, (remember ‘Women footballers should wear tighter shorts’) but what do you think of his latest proposal and how (if introduced) could it affect Pompey or the quality of players we see week in week out in the Premiership?
Is this another hare-brained theory or will it, like so many of his other ideas (silver goal, re-qualification of World Cup winners, booking players who remove their shirt or celebrate too much having scored a goal) become a law of the game that we will all just have to live with?
What do you think?
