    Why is he baffled?
    According to EU regulations (I know it's not UEFA but the logic is the same apparently) a snail is a fish and a carrot is a fruit. If an egg has two yokes it's not an egg, so if an English player trained in Portugal, he's not English. I hope I cleared it up for MP.

    It is, but surely we should have known from last season.

    I'm sure he's pissed right off that he can't name the perpetually injured Lamela and the out on loan to Fenerbache Janssen in the champions league group stage.

    We did know that's why we put the squad in as we did. The bafflement is why that is the rule in the first place.

    Headline should read: baffled at the rules...not by the rules. Tsk.

    Maybe we should plan to have a home/club-grown keeper as third choice. Using three of 17 spots available for goalkeepers seems a bit of a waste, if it limits our tactical flexibility.

    we knew the rules alright. . It's one of the reasons we charged City 50mil.

    Last season we had Walker and at least 4 less non-english players. The issues would have been much less evident.
