In the UK, football is done very differently. There is no draft at all. Players come through the academies of the county's that they are in. For example a lad born in manchester would either play for Manchester UTD or CITY. I don't think it's legal for them to play elsewhere untill they reach a certain age.
in what sense? our league isnt at a very high level yet because people in the states couldn't care less about soccer. but if you're trying to say that we don't produce some great players, then you're mistaken. after all the USA is the best producers of goal keepers in the world
