With a room packed full of press and all the FA hierarchy present, David Bernstein welcomes everybody to Wembley, after a short introduction he hands straight over to Sir Trevor Brooking 'The FA's Director Of Football Development'.

"Ladies and Gentlemen I finally see the future of English football, for too many years now we have reminisced on the past glories of 1966, this stops now!

I am proud to announce the launch of a new English football club 'FA Academy' this club will play at Wembley stadium and be afforded all the benefits of exceptional training and youth facilities at St Georges Park.

What does this mean i hear you say?

After Truro FC were withdrawn from the Blue Square South division, i have obtained permission to replace them with the 'FA Academy'. The team will be solely made up of players of English heritage, but the FA will afford the manager with 1m in transfer budget and spare wage budget to sign English players worldwide.

For too long now our young English players have been signed by big tea
ms worldwide but never afforded the chance to break into the first teams through the vast amount of foreign players in the league, from there on their talent is wasted and potential is never fufiled, thus harming our national team.

I want to see this team develop and progress and finally claim the English PL from the g
rasps of foreigners and take our dominance to the European level and become all conquering champions of Europe.

And ENGLAND??? European & World Champions with a squad of FA Academy born and bred players of course!"

"Now over to England Manager Roy Hodgson"


I am totally behind this project and encourage all young English players to join the FA Academy revolution. I am pleased to announce that the new manager of FA Academy will be Rookie Mark Lowman, he has football running though his veins and even though he has never managed before i believe it is just as important to develop young Englisg managers in this system as well as players. To assist Lowman in his future endeveors i have assigned Manchester United legend Gary Neville as his assistant manager"

Mark Lowman enters the room in Mourinho style vigor......................

"1966 will soon to be a thing of the past, i will nurture players to the summit of English and World football, all i ask is that all those English players around the globe currently rotting in reserve and u 18 squads join the Lowman revolution and ignore the evils of high wages in order to play football, i thank all members of the FA who have faith in me and assure them i will not fail, i am a special one!!!!!
