The stick we Gooners take from the Spuds about Arsenal hardly having any English players always makes me giggle.
The stick we Gooners take from the Spuds about Arsenal not having any English players in the England World Cup squad always makes me laugh even more.
I've even wet myself on certain occasions.
That's something the Spuds are very proud of. Having several players in the England squad. But not just any England squad. The World Cup squad.
I'm actually glad Arsenal didn't have any of our players playing for our sorry excuse of a national team in the World Cup. We were an embarrassment.
How can the Spuds brag about it? What is there to boast about? Having a bunch of players in a side who limped through the group stage of an 'easy' group and then were hammered by our biggest rivals.
It was a shambles!
Sure, the Spuds could counter that Arsenal had a few players in the France squad who failed so miserably but the difference is we Gooners don't brag we had several players in the French squad do we!
What is the big deal about nationality anyway? Why do so many people moan about Arsenal having so many foreign players?
Of course there could be a xenophobic attitude to it, that's probably the main reason, but surely in this day and age that is almost wiped out. Or not.
When the England national team fail we look for excuses. Why do we English always do this? We never look to ourselves, we look to blame others.
Look at the latest shit we come out with. It was too strict under Fabio Capello at the World Cup. The players didn't like it whereas under Sven-Goran Eriksson it was too relaxed.
Why are we blaming others? The core of the players under both these managers is pretty much the same.
Both times this set of players have failed yet we don't look at them. We blame others when its clear our bunch of prima-doners have a massive opinion of themselves and aren't really as good as they think.
Bit like the Spuds. Bit deluded.
That's why I don't give a shit about not having any England players in the World Cup. I don't care because most English players are wankers. And the Spuds brag about it.
That's why England will never win the World Cup in my life. I'm 27 years old. I've got maybe 11-12 World Cups left in me if I'm lucky. Or unlucky.
I won't see England win the World Cup unless we have a major overhaul. We need to change our attitude and adopt the notions of our European cousins.
You know, the cousins who we think we are superior to. Hmmmmm.
The Spuds think they can take the moral high ground because they have more English players than we do. Why? It's an English league sure but so what?
I hope those English players did you Spuds proud. How many of them are in the World Cup final?
How many Arsenal players are? Yes, Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie maybe 'dirty' foreigners but they are in a World Cup final aren't they?
In fact, how many Spurs players have ever played in the World Cup final?
One has. Christian Ziege as a late sub. Arsenal could double that number tomorrow.
Keep it Goonerish.............
