The 25-man squad is not just about giving in 25 names of players you wish to draw from to build a team of 11 players on a Saturday (or Sunday, Monday, etc etc!)
At least eight players in that 25-man squad must be ‘home grown’ (as defined by the Premier League.)
‘Home grown’ means a player who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the FA (or the Welsh FA) for a period of three whole seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21), although this does not have to be continuous.
It may surprise you just how many of our 25-man squad actually are ‘home grown’
Here are QPR’s ‘home grown’ players:
Adel Taarabt (yes, he came to Spurs on loan but young enough to qualify!)
Armand Traore (guess we should thank Arsene for bringing him to Arsenal at such a tender young age)
That leaves our ‘foreigners’:
Well, I thought that was interesting!
