It's often claimed Premier clubs pay a premium for British players a homegrown tax, if you will. But what does it look like when we actually compare fees for British players with those for their foreign counterparts?
At first glance it might seem logical to pay more for British players. They'll arrive at your club training ground pre-acclimatised to living and playing in England.
Complete the sequence: Angel di Maria, Fernando Torres, Andy Carroll, Robinho, Andrei Shevchenko, "X".
For those who don't instantly recognise what connects the aforementioned soccer players make a note of the eventual answer, because it's a nailed on pub quiz question it's a chronologically descending list of the players signed by English clubs that have broken the British transfer record.
There were three major talking points from Liverpool's 2-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park. Referee Anthony Taylor was kept very busy all afternoon and didn't have a great game in my opinion. Here's why. The first controversy was when he awarded a penalty to Liverpool after James Tomkins was judged to have prevented the ball going past him, after Luis Suarez touched the ball to the side of the defender.
Liverpool are on the verge of doing what many at least, if not impossible, thought unlikely at the start of the season. They defeated Manchester City 3-2, and are now on first place, and it seems only Chelsea will be able to threaten them. But with their splendid form it seems, if not impossible, unlikely that Liverpool should mess it all up.
