The Football Association's chairman Greg Dyke has presented the findings of his England Commission report, which was set-up to look at ways of improving the national team's fortunes.
The major points in the report were:
- The much reported B team concept is accurate with a separate league (League 3) between League 2 and the Conference.
- Premier League clubs would be given the option to enter League 3 or the Conference. They could not be promoted beyond League 1.
- This new league 3 would consist of the top 10 conference teams and perhaps 10 Premier League B teams.
The other major issue is home grown players and the number of mediocre non-EU players who are granted work permits even though current regulations are supposed to bar all but the exceptionally talented.
- The FA believes that no non-EU players should be allowed to join any club outside the Premier League.
- They are in favour of introducing a cap of two non-EU players in any Premier League squad.
