Why cant you cockneys buy any flippin' english players?..
Who would you rather have? Pires, or bentley. Upson or Lauren. its a no brainer every time, we bring through the youth talent, its just not good enough for us.
We're not cockney, that's east london. :-)
Because foreign ones are better. And due to the strong pound, we can afford to pay them about £30 a week and all the oranges you can eat.
