6 + 5 = Success - Poll Result

6 + 5 = Success - Poll Result

Vital QPR members believe that Sepp Blatter`s proposed "6+5 scheme" serves to benefit English football.

We asked:

6 + 5 =

The results are as follows in descending order:

Genius - 36%

Nonsense - 20%

The rest of the mark displayed that Rangers fans have not forgotten their mathematical skills with the majority voting:

11 - 44%

The forum fluttered with activity on this subject with both sides of the story being considered. Firstly mikeghall states a clear benefit of the system and the reason for introducing the initiative.

"I think home grown players should get more of a chance, we have too many imported players"

Another Vital QPR regular SuperhoopMango, considered the drawbacks of such a ploy,

"There has always been an influx of foreign players to these shores (Muhren, Thijssen, Ardiles, Villa etc) who have enriched our league with their skill and poise."

He added,

"If you put a cap on the number of players that a team can play, this will lead to lesser players being given more chances, which may well bring down the standard of the league. Do we really want 8 great players and 3 donkeys in a team, just because they are home grown?"

"By all means, encourage our players to get better, but make sure that the ones that come through deserve it."


The purveyor of the latter opinion, SuperhoopMango, has also suggested our new poll this time out with respect to Euro 2008.

With the transfer rumours continuing to grow, and with managers countrywide looking to Switzerland and Austria for the latest emerging talents, there will surely be an influx into the English leagues, but to what extent?

Therefore we ask:

How many players at Euro 2008 do you think will be playing at Loftus Road over the coming season?

What gets me re/ the whole 6+5 thing is that where were the UEFA calls for a new rule when Barca and Real ruled the European roost? Blatter has a problem with English football no question - Look at the Euro's - if we'd qualifed England would have had the largest % of home based players in their squad. The Prem is also the most competitive league in the world (at top tier) - Germany, Italy, Spain and Holland are all dominated by 2 clubs max.

Not forgettting the Championship following closely behind the Prem in terms of English players, and level of competition and crowd levels in Europe etc. The anti-English feel in UEFA is palpable.

I agree guys, it seems whenever an English club or clubs do well in Europe Ol' Sepp decides to bring in new rules to try and stuff us up, He seems to forget that all our National players play in England, and that we probably have the most competetive and exiting top and second tier leagues in the world.
