Prince Charles Wont Play For Arsenal

Prince Charles Wont Play For Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has revealed that Prince Charles will never play for Arsenal.

'What?'

I hear you cry.

Before you write me off as a complete and raving nutter, this is the latest in the long line of statements given by Arsene Wenger that you just have to chuckle at.

Le Boss reveled that no matter how English you are, if you're not good enough, you'll never play for Arsenal, not even if you're next in line for the throne.

'I can understand that people are disappointed that there are not so many English players,' Wenger admitted. 'But it is not my fault. Rules are rules. The people who are sad that there are foreigners here are maybe the same people who sell their house to move to the south of France.'

'That is what is good about football; it's the best against the best,' he continued. 'If you are not that good, you will not play for Arsenal, even if you are the son of the Queen. Has Prince Charles played for Arsenal? Whether the players are English, French or South American is another issue that is not the responsibility of sport but a political and perhaps economic consideration.'

You've gotta love him eh!?!

I'm f***ing gutted. I had a tenner on old big ears to wear the famous shirt at 1000-1. C'mon Boss give him a chance. Those pesky kids from Tiny Totts were right about us not giving the english an opportunity:)

We'll see if the impending EC/UEFA/FIFA rules change his viewpoint. It has less to do with players not having the ability than Wenger's scouting network being focused away from England. With players like Bentley, and Sidwell coming good and demonstrating that your lots loss are other teams gain, lets hope all English u-14 to u-21 players are shown this.

Maybe you are right Sir_Harry. Maybe we'll regret not paying 7.5m fro Jenas. Maybe Upson, Pennant, Bentley, Sidwell, will go on to get 100 caps for England. Maybe Spurs will win a trop......sorry I'm getting carried away.
