    New Football Association chairman Greg Dyke says the England team should aim to
    reach the semi-final of Euro 2020 and win the World Cup in 2022.

    In short...


    • Sets target to reach the semi-finals at Euro 2020 and win the World Cup in 2022.
    • Describes English game as a "tanker which needs turning" citing the amount of foreign players limiting chances for English players.
    • Wants more English players who are consistent starters in the Premier League
    • Aims to set up an FA Commission asking why so few players registered for England play in the Premier League with help from Premier League, Football League, the LMA and PFA
    • Dyke also said he was open to: exploration of a quota system for foreign players; examining the current work permit system; examining the loan system and evaluating the pros and cons of a mid-season break.

    He has very valid points and objectives...

    Unfortunately it will not come off as money rules in football...

    The game is in crisis and needs fixing very quickly...

    ha ha I am :)
    ... but since there are many different nationalities and cultures in BHW,
    we sometimes have to respect that, and refer to soccer rather than footie or football.
    I am sure you understand.

    Besides, I put this up as a joke, because I do not think that England will win 2022,
    whether it is summer or winter :)

    as a Scot? I think you know what I mean lol
