It's exactly the same Arsenal squad we would have put forward even if the new rules hadn't been put in place. Most PL teams in the recent past will only use something like 26-28 players over a normal season and there'll always have been a handful of youngsters amongst those.

'Cesc Fabregas, Johan Djourou, Niklas Bendtner, Alexandre Song, Vito Mannone, and Perka Denilson - Do these names sound home grown to you?' was a post a Spurs supporting friend of mine put up on facebook/ twitter today. All i seem to be doing is arguing with people about Arsenal at the moment! lol!
