So from next season England could have a Spanish goalkeeper playing for them. How shit have England become? Are we now so bad that we now rely on other nations to produce players for us! And we used to laugh at Scotland doing it!
So Manuel Almunia for England? Not for me. It's been said 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'm sorry Manuel that you cant get into the Spain side. But maybe, just maybe, if you knuckle down at Arsenal and keep improving as you have been, then you may even get that chance for your home land.
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, but 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, 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.
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.
Anyway, Almunia for England? Not for me.
Keep it Goonerish.............
