I am wondering if it will be as significant in years to come as footballs now are much lighter than they used to be previously but how much heading of the ball went on in the 50's/60's/70's compared to now? I have no idea, before my time. A lighter ball but more frequent heading may be as damaging.

Obviously at some point kids are going to need to learn to head a ball and it should be up to medical professionals and not ex-players or managers to opine what age the risks become sufficiently reduced to be acceptable.
0 points to go!
