So Manuel Almunia for England? Not for me. It's been said in recent weeks, there is a possibility of Almunia playing for England to solve the England goalkeeper crisis. I think that this is wrong. He's SPANISH not English and should only represent Spain. I do however think it's alright to have a foreign manager. The manager should be the best man for the job, regardless of nationality. We, after all want England to do well and we now have a good manager. Although in truth, it's more than just having a good manager, it go's deeper than that. Back to grass roots level.
We can't start having players from other countries playing for our own. After all, u look at the Irish and Scotland squads over the years and they have players playing for them who have a dog related to a Scottish cat or an Irish tree monkey meaning they can play for that country!! It's laughable. How can u say for years how you're an English man and but find out u have a great-great-great-great uncle who was a quarter Welsh and then declare you're love for the Welsh Dragon?!
Almunia should wait for a chance to play for Spain. If it doesn't happen, it's unfortunate. I hope England don't go down this road. I think other countries shouldn't do it either. We have a great player in Eduardo who's done it, bit I still don't agree with it.
England should have an English team. And before anyone gives it about Arsenal having hardly any English players and I should shut up, that's not what this is about. For me, its Arsenal first and England second. But that does not mean I want England to fail or go down this road to make us better.
Anyway, I'm not English, I'm Goonerish!!!
