Ok so 'B' teams are out. Feeder clubs are out. What SHOULD we do?

So the FA have come up with their master plan for improving the quality of the English game and as a result the England side. And predictably their suggestions have found themselves the victim of an almighty backlash.


The backlash was predictable because 1) people fear any change and 2) the suggestions are rubbish.

However I do think that there is room to change English football for the better and that the FA should not be afraid of making radical changes if they can show that those changes will achieve what they are setting out to achieve.

If you assume the following objectives:

- Improve the quality of players being produced by English clubs
- Increase the number of English players playing in the Premier League
- Create an England national side capable of winning a major international trophy

What changes would you make in order to work towards these goals and what changes, as a Southend United fan, would you be prepared to make in order to work towards these goals?
