Robson pushes for English talent


West Brom boss Bryan Robson has asked for more English players to be given a chance in the top-flight football.

The former England captain believes there has to be a shift of emphasis or the international side will suffer.

"Within the squad there has to be some British players," he said. "If there is a number in your squad that you have got to have, then so be it.

"It is not good for English football if we keep going out and bringing in foreign players."

Robson spoke out after Arsenal fielded a 16-man squad with no British players for the 5-1 Premiership win over Crystal Palace at Highbury on Monday.

He added: "You get some great players from abroad but we need to encourage bringing kids through.

"We have quite a lot of British players anyway at our place.

"But we are setting up a youth academy and hope we can catch some of the best players around the West Brom area and make sure we don't lose them."

With us signing Eng U21 Richard Chaplow, and alse trying to get Scott Carson from Leeds, I think he's not just idly saying that either.

We previously had both the Chambers twins play for Eng U21 together too.

Since we have had Keiron Richardson on Loan from United he has also achieved U21 status.

I hope these players mature and end up in the full squad.

ah he's just saying that to appear to be nice after he said a few months ago that Ian Dowie wasn't fit to tie his shoelaces :D

same for Arnessen who yesterday said he supports Sven. Surely he can't if he's being honest!
