The subject bores me, I've had millions of arguments about it, but I'm finally coming round to the idea that Arsenal DO need more English players in the squad.
I haven't gone soft in my beliefs. I still stick by my principles. In my opinion there aren't many English players who could actually improve Arsenal a great deal more on the pitch. Maybe Stevie G. In fact, definitely Stevie G!
People say you need an English spine to the team. I don't agree. A homo sapien is a homo sapien all the same.
Arsenal need English players for all the wrong reasons. We need them because it will help on the pitch with referees. A English ref will interact more with an English player. It's that little Englander attitude that is embedded into our brains from birth. We can't help it, its in our DNA. Its why we blame everyone but ourselves for England being shit.
We need English players because then maybe, just maybe, the biased media might leave us alone for ten minutes. Look at Manchester United, in shit-loads of debt, a Portuguese plonker and old red nose with a drinking problem in charge. Do they get it in the media? No, they don't.
You know why? Because they have England's knight in shining armour up-front. That 'orrible foul mouthed granny shagger, Wayne Rooney.
That great 'English steel' I keep on hearing about hasn't won England many trophies over the years has it? But apparently it's what Arsenal lack. It fucking ain't. Arsenal lack a player to protect the back line and a monster defender. And you know something? I couldn't care less where they came from. England or the North Pole. Do the business for Arsenal and that's good enough for me.
How many times have you watched an Arsenal game and some twat, who supports another team, shouts something about Arsenal being the foreign legion? Its all politics and it isn't right. Arsenal suffer from a xenophobic attitude and it will only stop when Arsenal sign some English players; for all the wrong reasons.
Keep it Goonerish...........
