Right, I have broached this subject in the past and have been shot down in flames, usually by our loyal foreign fans, but does anybody else feel that we should be snapping up some of the English talent around, or is 'talent' too strong a word to use for the current crop of English players?
What do you think?
Personally, I remember seeing Arsenal Vs France at highbury in 1989 (yes, France. They had a game against Scotland coming up and wanted some decent warm up opposition). If I remember rightly we outplayed them for the whole game but they scored a very late equalizer.
At the time, David O'Leary was substituted and Steve Bould came on and the chant around the ground was 'Robson, pick them all, Robson Robson pick them all!' as all 11 on the pitch were English and were blowing away a very good French team.
Since then we have had a few notable Englishman in our team but they are getting less and less. Theo Walcott and Hoyte are our only two now and I think we could do with some more for many different reasons.
I know it is probably right to pick up the best WORLD talent and that English players are over-priced, but I would really love to see more Arsenal players in an England shirt.
