I agree about the World Cup,etc. Maybe they'd put too much effort into their clubs during the year because England looked totally drained.
What I'm saying is that the Brits seem to put more effort in because they're representing a club where they are from.
I've seen a lot of this Arsenal squad play blinders for their countries.
I think that the homegrown players seem to fight a lot harder. It definitely makes up for the lack of skill.
You have to admit that that has been this clubs problems over the past two years! Skill,yes they have,but when a bit of grit is needed they sometimes seem to give in much too early!I hope they will go on until the end of the season and get that 4th spot!The extra effort is needed now!
I do agree with you(longsleddale)regarding having SOME homegrown players in the side/squad.I think,deep down,we'd all love a couple of players who were born and bred in n5,but if they are not available then we have to go down other avenues.
There are a few 'homegrown' players in the reserves who may be given a chance next season i think.

I think that there's a lot of flare and skill here but it takes more than that to win the premier League. It's always a long drawn-out season and you need the grit and detemination wsometimes more than the flare and skill.
