I think people could argue all day long that Arsenal need an English backbone and our lack of English players could be a major reason for us being starved of trophies in recent years.
I don't agree..............
Its obvious we need some grit in there. Some of our players are softer than Tesco's blue stripe toilet roll.
But why do some people always assume that English is what we need to give us a bit of 'toughness'?
Is there proof that English players are harder and provide more grit than any other nations players?
There is no proof that on those cold snowy Tuesday nights in Blackburn English players will just roll their sleeves up and get on with it more than a foreigner.
Its all about character.
And when was the last time all that 'grit' won England anything anyway?
Keep it Goonerish.............
