Default Arsenal--foreign team

Do you think it good for the game when an "English' club fields a team without an English player in it?

No, I think its sad when a team cannot field at least 1 homegrown talent. But I am against what FIFA/UEFA? is proposing for European games in a few years. Wasn't it just a few years back when a team couldn't field more than two foreign players?.

This has been booted about by some friends.... but do you want to win, or do you want to watch a mostly-English-player team?

Answer's up to the individual.

WEll, I don't think it has to do with "good for the game", but "good for the fans"...

And to answer your question, I think there should be some English players.. Isn't that the point of cheering for a local team as opposed to say a German team..? I mean, fans are surely not cheering for the management or the owners of the team lol...

The answers up to the chairman.
the mega bucks involved now in the elite premiershit / Champion League means that the ethnicity of players means sod all so long as they win.

And anyways, we're all European, what difference does it make?

True, though some of the players are from Africa and South America.

Speaking of chairmen: what an or-Delia it's been to be a Norwich supporter. Though her half-time rant wasn't nearly as bad as some of the escapades of head coaches.
