    Much has been written about the Gael Kakuta case which has led to the ban on transfer dealings that has been imposed on Chelsea There has been debate about whether the decision was too harsh or not; others have focused on going over Chelsea's actions to see whether they were right in what they did or notWhat has escaped most people's attention is why they've acted in that way Why is it that all the big clubs and the not so big ones feel compelled to go raiding across Europe in order to find young players with which to load their reserves? Isn't that the reason why they spend so much money on their own academies?Ten years down the line from the publication of Howard Wilkinson's 'Charter for uality' that set up the academy system England should be flush with promising young players coming through the ranks Instead the likes of Jack Wilshire are the exception rather than the rule With the cost of getting things wrong being that of missing out on the Premiership's millions few managers are willing to risk their future by giving young players a chance with the temptation of going for cheap imports being too strong to resistOr at least that is what normally gets blamed for the evident lack of results and what Chris Green tries to confirm in his book 'Every Boy's Dream' What he finds out is that whilst there is a lack of opportunites out there it is only one of the reasons for the declining number of local players; it is only one element of a much larger and complex issueBy talking with a whole host of experts in the field of youth development as well as some players who have been chewed up and spit out by the system he slowly starts piecing together the various reasons for the system's failure Some of these are to be expected lack of money lower down the league structure for instance but many will inevitably shock because uite simply the expectations being placed on young children are frankly unacceptableThe risk that such books run is that they become over bearing that the doom suffocates the initial interest that there is Green avoids this by skillfully managing the pace of his writing alternating between moments that are laden with serious thoughts and others where the writing takes a personal tone which as a result make the whole piece a lighter readGreen also looks beyond the conventional boundaries of academy football by talking to those who are doing things their own way He looks for instance at the ideas behind the Give Us Back Our Game project that aims to let the children auto regulate themselves rather than impose rigid the kill off all the fun Again these lighten the mood but also offer a genuine alternative for the gameThe end result is a fine piece of work and as exhaustive a look at the state of English football as you're likely to come across Yet reading it I couldn't avoid the nagging uestion about whether despite all the negative aspects of youth football that Green uncovers we as fans are really bothered about it Does it really matter if the big clubs prey on the smaller ones if the children are put under undue pressure or if the academic side of thing is pushed aside? The sad truth is that the answer most probably is a negative oneWhich makes Every Boy's Dream all the important for it looks into areas that we're not normally bothered about and asks the uestions that we should be asking For those reasons alone it is a vital read

Short listed for the Best Football Book in the 2010 British Sport Book Awards The way Britain develops its top football talent is a hot topic of debate The failure of all four of the UK's national teams to reach the 2008 European Championships and the ever increasing reliance of England's top clubs on foreign talent underlines an undisputable fact that Britain now lags well behind the world's top countries in producing the best footballers despite having the wealthiest league in the world and untold riches at the game's disposal Every Boy's Dream England's Football Future on the Line investigates why despi.

Chooling while under the clubs' stewardship What happens when the boys don't make the cut and are released by the clubs Every Boy's Dream does not pull any punches It lays the blame at the doors of the authorities in charge of youth football But rather than just listing the faults of system which are many as the hard hitting real life examples demonstrate it provides tales of inspiration and a blueprint for the future of the national game It is the most thorough book ever written about football youth development and cracks through the age old veneer of perceived wisdom that has stifled debate on the subjec.
