funny, but i think Ferdinand is their only homegrown player in their starting XI.

if he could swap squads with us do you think he would still be worrying about this matter? :howler:

Really is this not the most redundant debate in the UK?

So many arguments can be made against such jingoistic rants, really where does one start?

How about the damn price of English players? Rooney whom did not want him? Sorry we could not afford him but at least no person can deny he is worth every single cent. Let face facts most English players are extremely overpriced be it Jenas 10 MP, Woodgate 15 MP, SWP 21 MP, Parker 14 MP etc etc

Excuse us but we're not a club with unlimited funds, nor do we want over-hyped players.

Youth system wise most of our players are English as are some of our best prospects i.e Gilbert, Muamba, Walcott, Jay Simpson etc

With that said if they do not cut than what is the club to do Play them anyway? Take Pennant the kid had the skills but no friggin discipline, the prat is still causing headaches for Steve Bruce. Sidewell not exactly the next Tony Adams, Bently to damn slow to cut it at Arsenal etc etc

I'm sure Newcastle fans would love to swap places with Gooners over the last decade despite our lack of English players.

Kolo is very much part of the soul of this club, i am every bit as proud of him as our past English players.

and the bloke that went and spoke to our bitter rivals behind our back, where did we get him from btw? i think we had him since he was 10 years old and he was born just down the road.

SPOT ON!

This whole foreign crap is getting as boring as hell, where would English clubs have been over the last dozen or so years without these "damn foreigners"?

To name but a few

Bergkamp
Cantona
Kanchelkis
Limpar
Hamman
Sloskaer
Stam
Henry
Solano
Ronaldo
Alonso
Schmeichel
Overmars
Viven Foe


etc etc etc

Rooney would kill the soul of the club anyway, we don't want any chubby pikeys going through the players valuables in the dressing room. ;)

"Arsenal have played nearly 700 minutes of football since an English player last appeared for them"

Yep, because we've not been playing Campbell and Cole as a matter of choice. :thumbsup:

Ridiculous point of view IMO and if the quote attributed to Taylor about it not being an "English success" is true that's even more stupid. :irritate:

Pardew can go to hell. He is not worthy of licking Wenger's shoes. When he has won EPL titles, FA Cups then he can come and preach about English players.

He is typical of the little Englanders that live in this country, anything foreign is no good.

Pardew moves up the list of hated mangers by Arsenal fans:

1. Mourinho
2. Ferguson
3. Pardew
4. Jol (nice bloke but Spurs manager)
5. Bruce / Robson (ex Man Utd wannabees)
