BBC Sport has done some research and found that the number of English players in the Premiership has dropped to an all-time low.
There were 498 players that started matches last season and only 170 of them were English. Around 34.1%.
My fellow Gooners, prepare for the almighty onslaught that will undoubtedly follow this research. There is only one club responsible for this, the evil presence that is Arsenal Football Club.
Over the next few days be ready to hear how Arsenal are ruining the English game and it's our fault that the Premiership is over-run with the foreign invasion, the REAL reason for England's demise!
The best way to conquer these stats? Put a cap on clubs, allowing them only five foreigners in the starting eleven. Well thats according to Sepp Blatter.
My opinion on that is to tell Blatter to f**k off!
It's not the foreign players faults that England struggle. Its Englands.
By capping teams and forcing them to play six English players isn't going to help the national side. That will only reward average English players who couldn't get in the side before, so all Fabio Cappello gets is more English players to choose from, but shit ones!
Sure there are a bigger number of foreign players playing in the Premiership, but if an English player is good enough, he will get into the team every week.
Its no good people like David Bentley saying that academies need to be regulated to prevent foreign players hindering homegrown talent.
David, you obviously have a chip on your shouldier about us releasing you. If you were good enough, you would have had a chance. You wasn't. But you have done alright at Blackburn and Arsenal helped you progress. It's obvious that your ego needs to be massaged from time to time, so you bring up the foreign situation at Arsenal.
The problem with England is that we aren't taught at an early age how to play football properly. We are taught to win at all costs, not technique.
Thats why England are shit, because we can't compete with our European neighbours technique wise. Not because of numbers.
We have to make a choice. Do we want an average league with an average national side?
Or do we want an exciting league with an average national side?
I choose the latter. It's not Arsenal's fault that England are shit, thats down to English grass-root level.
But over the next few days when the stats are made public I have no doubt that Arsenal will be to blame.
Keep it Goonerish........
