Arsenal & Boro Flying The Flag

Arsenal & Boro Flying The Flag

Just 24 hours after Arsenal amazingly made it through to the Champions League final, Middlesbrough have become the second Premiership team this week to make it through to the final of a major European tournament.

Astonishingly, Middlesbrough once again had to score 4 goals in the second half for the 2nd game on the trott, and they did. Massimo Macarone once again scoring the winning goal.

Arsenal and Middlesbrough are now representing the Premiership in the European game and it can only be good for our league.

So a big congratulations to Middlesbrough and to Arsenal for showing the world just how good English football is.

Lets hope the Super Cup can be an all English event.

"So a big congratulations to Middlesbrough and to Arsenal for showing the world just how good English football is" well this makes me laugh i mean hats of to boro they can be called an english team...but how exactly is arsenals success showing us how good english football is? arsenal show how impossible it is for english youngsters to actually play in the first team and there oppurtunity is replaced with foreigners id love to see how this is good for english football

buckers, spot on mate, arse*** are a disgrace to English football they should me moved to a all World league there not welcome in the premiership. But well done Boro, I hope you go on and win it I will be rooting for you anyway.

nice 1 scottdayid i really would liek to see some honest gooners at least admitting that they would like at least some english players playing for their "english club"
28/04/2006 11:29:00
I'd love it if our team was full of England internationals, but it's just not possible. The players who are good enough are all remaining very loyal to their current clubs and would cost the earth to buy, and the rest just aren't good enough. Why pay 8 million for Dean Ashton when you can get Robin van Persie for 2 million. Explanations please?
28/04/2006 12:03:00
thats not always the case rocky ashton is an examply of fluctuated price due to a successful half season with norwich, however huddlestone 2mil lennon 0.5mil carrick 2.75 mil robbo 1.5mil...make no mistake about it these players before they signed for spurs would of been more likely to go to arsenal had an offer come in....howevewr wenger over the last few years had opted to give foreign youngsters there chance...if you think ashton is too expensive at 7mil try 13mil for hleb or 17mil for reyes..dont get me wrong there is a place in every team for foreign players but wenger has made the decision to purely crowd the the team with for arsenal this could be a good decision but not for english football...if english youngsters dont get a chance at big clubs what chance do we stand in having a decent national team in years to come...what if all other top clubs decided to have this transfer policy?? down the line wenger has made decision not to invest in english youth when for cheaper money htna he has spent he easily could have to hear that arsenals progression in europe is good for english football really is laughable

You must know very little about our club. Currently we have 6 England internationals (at whatever level) at our club, I wonder how many England internationals everyone else is producing. You really should do your homework. Plus, Hleb is world class where as Ashton is not (different positions also) so you can't even compare.
28/04/2006 12:34:00
Rocky7, I will give you explanations. Lennon £1m, Huddlestone £2m, Carrick £3m, Robbo £1.5m, Jenas £7m, Defoe £7m, Dawson £4m, Davenport £2m. Where was you when these signings was going on? In France probably.
