    Anxiety over the economic impacts of Brexit have plagued businesses in the UK, Europe and around the world since the 2016 Referendum. The UK government’s lack of clarity and failure to negotiate a smooth
    transition out of European Union has left an immeasurable amount of potential impacts on businesses.
    English football is not immune from these impacts, with the Premier League’s brand as ‘the best league in the world’ through its multinational inclusion of the best footballing talent under threat.

    True, In European competitions, yes English clubs excel..Tho mostly with and through foreign talent..Liverpool/Ma U/Forest and even Villa did quite well before the PL with just a few scots and Welsh 'imports' How to lie with stats.

    The England team isn't particularly good for England if we're honest.
    It is the overt advertisement that illegal immigrants can represent a country they've been forcibly imported into (or descended from former invaders) and that government by consent is a dead letter because invasion is OK as long as a completely criminal and unrepresentative Parliament says it is.
    Its quite laughable the recent reports the "England team will meet to discuss racism" when they are the very embodiment of the most racist policy in British history, post war immigration policy. Brexit might be bad for it but only if the British people wake up to the fact and say.... "and by what authority are you representing MY country again?" Because the only true answer is the marketing industry.

    Also lets not forget that European clubs chased our best players starting with greats such as John Charles followed by Gerry Hitchens,Dennis law and Jimmy Greavis . From 1977 flood gates opened wirh British players going to European clubs starting with Kevin Keegan who was soon followed by the likea of Laurie Cunningham, Trevor Francis,Ray Wilkins,Greame Sounes,John Barnes,Mark Hately,Glen Hoddle and Waddle not forgetting IanRush,Mark Hughes,Liam Brady,Duncan Mckenzie,Steve Archibald,Tony woodcock these players werent replaced by overseas players but Brirish players.

    Oh my lord this is the most funist video i have every seen only needs Jimmy carr to pop up and it would win a Bafta. Lets look at English teams in Europe. 1962-63 to 1970-71 English teams won the Cup winners cup 4 times 2 more than any other country with mainly British players. Or how about Englands Domination of the European cup from 1977-82 6 succeessive times a record with only the 1982-83 won by a European club with Liverpool retain the European cup the following season . Heysel stadium disaster bring ir all to a holt for five years again all done with mainly British players . Leaves one thinking how long the Domination of the European cup would of lasted if Heysel didnt happen.

    Last four WC Champions were from EU nations (Italy, Spain, Germany, France) - No one has any reason to believe Brexit could in any way, shape or form improve the status of England's national team on the world's stage.

    The fundamental problem with English people and Brexit is the inability to differentiate between "England" and the "UK" ... Normally, Im a fan of your videos Tifo Football, but why no mention of Scottish football and Welsh and Northern Ireland ... all those three (2 of which that voted against Brexit) are getting dragged out against their will, but are not worthy of a mention in this whole entire video. Shameful at least, arrogant at best.

    The reason with English national team is that their squad is filled with all premier league based players,now what does this mean?It means that these group of players are all exposed to the same football environment,intensity and mentality,they would be better if more English players played across diff European leagues

    Well, unfortunately this was (unusually) one sided and uncritical (a pitty because I love this channel). It just adopts the flaws of economic theory (I am a former student of economics and statistics): It implicitely makes unreasonable assumptions without communicating them. Thus, it appears logical, but if you take a closer look on the assumptions themselves - It is not. The problems are the following:

    The video and the authors of soccernomics put all responsibility on the individual player by assuming the only "factor of production" of players is what the authors call "motivation". This "motivation" is linked to training effort and it is assumed that it can only be increased by raising psychological pressure due to higher competition via foreign players. This economic model of player production seems questionable. Furthermore, the presented empirical arguments suffer from logical fallacies. In more detail:
    First, one could argue that the production of a player is influenced by more than just one factor. It seems more reasonable to assume that it also depends on the quality of coaches, quality of training infrastructure and the socio-psychological environment that players face.
    Quotas are likely to raise the motivation of clubs to invest in their academies for young players and make them buy better coaches, better training grounds etc.. With the assumption of the authors this does not play any role in the production of players because only training effort itself counts. Additionally, the claim "Quotas harm motivation" is rather strong. Is it really the case that a young player thinks about quotas and therefore reduces training effort? Is psychological pressure the only way to make young player train? Is lending a very young boy to club far abroad not a much a higher risk to cause a lack of motivation due to psychological factors?
    Second, the presented statistics are rather superficial. The authors implicitely claim that the correlation between "world cup success" and "number of foreign players" is logically a causality. Is this true? To me, it seems more reasonable that the driving factor behind world cup success is "Overall national investment in education of players". As these investments happened to exhibit a parallel developement compared to "number of foreign players", a statistic can be constructed that shows the correlation that the authors present. However, by this logic you could also claim that the reason for englands world cup success is the "number of personal computers within england", as both seems to show parallel developement. So, correlation does not mean causality.

    My personal guess is, that the authors of soccernomics are "classic anglo-american economists" that cheer free markets relentlessly. Thus, they constructed an explanotary model "from the end", such that by defintion of the assumption, it MUST reaffirm the notion that any intervention is always bad, no matter what you aim at. This may seem conspiratorial from the outside but if you get in touch with some professors of economic theory, the dogmatic and overarching attempt to make everything fit their ideology is not unusual.

    So... they say in the "english period" they were weaker, while conveniently creating arbitrary reasons to discount a semifinal and a fucking world cup victory? Im not sure how that makes sense. That being said though overall its obviously better to allow competition from foreign players. Ligue 1 is a fucking dumpsterfire for every team that isnt PSG (or Monaco for a time, but that clearly didnt last) but France has one of the strongest national teams with the most depth because its players are allowed to excel and develope around the world. Same with Brazil, which also has a shit domestic league.

    Problem is money. English youngsters need a wage cap and need to go abroad instead of bench warming to steal a living. Look at Nelson, Sancho, not amazing but great future prospects simply because they got the chance in a foreign place.

    The reason that Germany has a longer February break is simply because they play 34 not 38 games. Along with that, England has the Carabao Cup and FA Cup where as the other big countries only have 1 other bigger cup. (excluding things like the community shield etc.)

    More players in the premier league from other European countries isn't the reason why the national team has suffered.The national team has suffered for over 50 years.When we won the world cup in 1966 there was no sudden surge in foreign players playing for English clubs,barely any and in 1974 we did even qualify for the tournament.The real problem is misspent use of money in the national team since 1966,the pig-headedness of the FA,the introduction of the premier league in 1992 and the under development of coaching staff not just players.All these have been factors.

    well...england reached the semi in world cup 2018, three english clubs have been in the champions league final from 2018--2019,(liverpool being there twice) and tottenham, which have english players ,like trent alexander arnold, milner, kane, dier, danny rose, raheem sterling, kyle walker. So I dont really see a difference between this england side and the so called golden generation. If anything they are the same. The golden generation couldnt even qualify for the euro 2008, and got embarrassed at the 2010 world cup. We got a lucky group and fixtures for the 2018 world cup to get to the semi. Brexit or not I dont see it affecting the quality of the england national team.

    Foreign players are causing a problem buts it not a problem bthat protectionism will solve. Teams are reliant on the foreign players coming in on the transfer market that the youth talent is neglected. Managers only stay t a club 2 to 4 years max so no long term strategy nis ever implemented for the health of team in perpetuity. Youth academy's are little more than additional income for clubs through loans m

    But football is a completely different sport from 1968 to what it is in 1998.its like comparing 100 meter runners in 1968 to runners we have now, it's a different sport with different rules. And to ignore the 1966 win is done so just to prove a point

    We had the referendum in 2016 and England got to the Semi Finals of the world cup during the Brexit which equalled our best performance in more than 50 years. Plus English teams totally dominated European competitions this year. Maybe we should just have constant Brexit. This video is total garbage probably being paid for by Tony Blair or George Soros. The people who made it should be ashamed.
