There's no doubt that the influx of players from the continent and beyond, some of whom have been mediocre at best, has had an impact on the development of British players. However, it's pleasing to see that when it comes to Premiership managers, there's a healthy proportion of British managers plying their trade and competing with the suave sophistication we associate with the likes of AVB, Laudrup, Di Matteo and their continental peers.
Everton's win on Monday night came as no great surprise to me. No, I'm no better judge of the game than you, it was fairly obvious. David Moyes has added 2 or 3 players to a side that finished last season like a train. He does it every year, and is one of the reasons why Bill Kenwright gets more bang for his buck out of Moyes than any other Premier League chairman.
