Its an English football player who I don't know/care the name of. He has been photoshopped in though.

its John Terry. A few years ago when Chelsea won the Champions League Terry was suspended for the game but he still got into his full kit after the game to celebrate chelsea winning the match, ever since he has been photoshopped into just about every sporting celebration, presidential victory, actors award cermony and Royal Wedding and always in his full Chelsea kit. :lol:

just look in this spoiler

So someone did an analysis of the English/Non-English player percentages in English clubs, with some fairly startling results. Quins seem to be the only club seriously pumping out the talent, although that shouldn't be surprising considering they supplying some of England's best internationals, plus they probably have the best coach in the Premiership. Not surprised by London Irish's appalling stats though, I guess people call them London Samoa for a reason :P

Also, what are people's views on the new European Cup system? Competition wise I think it turned out fairly well, with an actual element of tension being brought into the Rabo. Not mad about the splitting of TV rights though, the only people that's good for are BT and publicans.

 

Finally, Connacht managed to sign Mils Muliaina on a one year contract today. Massive signing for them, and he's hinted about staying on as backroom staff. Huge boost for them as they'll be pushing for European Rugby next season.

Pretty happy with the new European competition system. If it brings more money to the clubs, that is only a good thing as far as I am concerned. The game needs more money and easier access to viewers, and I think that's pretty much happened across the board. 

 

I can't say I'm surprised at those figures for the clubs with foreigners, but I can't say I think it's a particularly bad thing either. It'd be nice to see the English player percentages up closer to 70%, but a decent number of foreigners will be Welsh and Scottish, which isn't exactly a tragedy. The England policy of only selecting England-based players should be starting to seep into the clubs by now. At the end of the day though, most teams have a pretty good balance. I have no problem with up to 30% of players being internationals if it means you get players like Francois Louw, Niki Goneva or Jaques Burger who just have that X-factor and are a pleasure to watch. 

 

I'm nervous about next week's game. Bath vs Quins. Whoever wins that is in the playoffs. Whoever wins it, the final is more than likely to be Saracens Vs Northampton. Ideally it'd be Saracens vs Bath though - not just out of my loyalty, but for the England squad's first game against New Zealand. Bath contribute the fewest. It'd be nice having the Saint's lot (Hartley, Lawes, Wood, Burrell [especially if 36 is injured]), Quins boys (Mike Brown! Care, Robshaw) and Tigers bunch (Tuilagi, Parling, Cole - and Croft is back in full training) but realistically, the aforementioned setup is the most likely final.
