    Excerpts from article:

    Sir Bobby Charlton has questioned whether the academy system is doing anything to end the current dearth of English talent.

    The Manchester United and England legend can only shake his head in dismay at the lack of emerging young players, which threatens to have a seismic effect on the national side over the coming years.....

    'I don't know if the academy system has worked,' he said.

    'It may have benefited some clubs but there is no great influx of talented young players coming into the game.'

    Well, I guess we'll see in a few years how our academy system is working.
