Wonder whether this will dissuade UEFA from implementing the 6-5 rules... it's about time, I'd say. After seeing the premier league's success, I was sorta surprised that most of the European leagues didn't do this.
I don't think it would make that much difference to some of the English teams, Man United in particular.
Last years Champions League final saw 6 English players start for Manchester United (Brown, Ferdinand, Scholes, Carrick, Hargreaves and Rooney) so we would have filled the quota anyway.
Even Cheslea had 4 (Terry, Lampard and Cole x2).
If United had a fully fit squad, we would be fielding 5 English players as first choice (Brown, Ferdinand, Carrick, Hargreaves and Rooney) and next year Foster will become our first choice keeper which makes 6.
Obviously it would affect Liverpool and Arsenal a bit more.
