    I know it's a futile argument but it's just been pointed out that West Ham have 11 different nationalities in their line up today. That's winless Weat Ham. Surely there must be some britBri players on a par with them?

    Of course as I typed this they took the lead, bastards!

    They should sign Barley Mumba imo.

    Send him on some maizey dribbles, might raise a rye smile from some supporters. But the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and signing British players for the sake of it is just a rice to the bottom imo.

  3. Chelsea never had a Brit starting yesterday and seem to be doing ok

    As I said I know it's futile but how can it be helping to bring English talent through?

    Whatever happened to the "quota" of English/British players each club was meant to have?

    Then BritBri players are quality

    Racist iirc. Can’t even say you’re English these days, and if you do they’ll throw you in jail.
     
  8. Sorry I sort of took the thread the wrong way, no way it is helping bring through and of our players for the national team, it won’t get any better either anytime soon

  9. I don't think nationality has anything to do with it. Spending money on the right type of players. West Ham are another club who seem to think that spending big equals success.

    Just look at Watford who have mainly signed cheap foreign players.

    This exactly. Premier League is the biggest single factor in the downturn of the England national team. Yet one of the lies put out by the greed league was that it would benefit the national team!

    Generally speaking the foreigners are cheaper for the same quality but aye agreed. I think there’s value to be had in the lower leagues - look at how solid Hughes is looking at Watford now they’ve took a chance on him after looking decent in the championship for a while. What was he? 7/8 million? Peanuts these days

    When they came to Roker in 96/97 they were like the UN. Ferdinand was on the bench too.
     
  17. Well we did get to the semi final of a World Cup recently so maybe it is working

    I know it was a easy route to the semis

    Goes against the grain to point out a situation in which words are incorrectly spelt.

    With players that aren't necessarily guaranteed a first team place. The national manager has talked about having to look at lower leagues.
     
  20. And so he should, if a player is not regularly playing for his club there is no way the should be in the England set up
