OK, so it's a marvellous achievement that the last two teams in the Champions League are English, representing the Premiership. This points to the quality of players on show in the Premiership, but is it a good thing? For every Rooney or Terry playing at the top level, there are young players with their route to the top level (including eventually to an English/Welsh/Scottish/N. Ireland/Eire shirt) being baulked by overseas signings, and not always by players of the best quality. Thought The quality of the national sides from the British Isles suffers as a result of too many overseas players excelling in the Premiership. Discuss.* * or Ignore, as you see fit.
