But Ferguson, a long-time critic of the academy system, insists that the changes cannot come quickly enough for English teams.
“We are only allowed to coach [schoolboys] for an hour and a half [each week].
An hour and a half each week?
Academy regulations state that young players can receive no more than 3,760 ‘contact time’ hours on the training pitch up to the age of 21.
Yer average public schoolboy will have 4-6 hours of sport a week.
Anyone know why this academy limit is so ludicrously low?
