I'm not sure how far I'll put this point across correctly but I sense that the English game is moving or has moved from a working class sport to a middle class sport. From my vantage point that seems to have spread into the stadiums, the boardrooms but hasnt yet spread to the footballers themselves, who still mainly seem to be from working class backgrounds. That of course isnt the issue other than the English working class lads who appear to play football nowdays cant understand simple tactical formations and cant think on their feet. Not only that but the footbalers have so little going for them educationally that football clubs are now acting as an educational provider for them, which in effect tells you about the footballer's educational abilities. could there be a link between a footballer's educational ability and his inability to understand simple tactical formations and be flexible on the pitch? should football clubs be providing an education to lads who should already have qualifications?
