A lot of the Arsenal reserve/youth teams are English. If they make the grade, good for them. If not, too bad. If I had a choice between playing Cesc Fabregas or David Bentley in my midfield guess who I'd pick?

Barcelona won the Champions League with Valdes, Puyol, Oleger, Xavi and Iniesta. You can win a major competition with local players.

Good luck to McLaren to form a decent team for 2008 and 2010.

Wenger has always given english players a go but they have always failed to make the grade.

half of Villa's team is made of English/British players and we're a comfortable 15/16 places higher in the league than the gooners so make of that what you will

RULES ARE BENT FOR COLE

By Ed Sunday 3rd September 2006


He and Gallas moved after the deadline.

The Telegraph:

What started with a breach of football's tapping-up rules ended with another bending of the regulations as Premier League officials agreed to push back the transfer deadline by 10 minutes on Thursday night to ensure Ashley Cole's transfer to Stamford Bridge went through.
With Cole and Chelsea fined a total of £375,000 for their infamous chat over tea and biscuits at London's Royal Park Hotel in January of last year, it was perhaps a fitting way for this sorry saga to close.
Although Chelsea agreed the terms of a deal which would see them pay Arsenal £5 million, plus William Gallas, for Cole early on Thursday afternoon, the official transfer documents and players' registrations were not lodged with the Premier League until after the official deadline had passed.
League secretary Mike Foster and lawyer Jane Purdon agreed the extension as Chelsea and Arsenal assured them that negotiations were finished and it was simply a question of faxing the appropriate paperwork.
The delay had a knock-on effect on Robert Huth's £6 million move to Middlesbrough and Arsenal's surprise signing of 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder Denilson from Sao Paulo, both of which went through after the deadline.
A Premier League spokesman said officials had received assurances from Arsenal and Chelsea that negotiations on all the moves were complete before they took the extremely rare step of granting special dispensation. To illustrate the bureaucratic log-jam faced by officials, it is understood the documentation for one of the players stretched to 20 pages.
The Premier League stressed that yesterday's exemption for Chelsea and Arsenal was not a licence for clubs to start pushing negotiations beyond the deadline in future transfer windows. They added: "While not all documentation was received prior to the midnight deadline, the FA Premier League are satisfied that the deals were completed in time and that the delay in the paperwork being received was due to circumstances outside the control of the clubs." But even after the deals were signed off, there was a further hold-up until 1.30am as lawyers for Arsenal and Chelsea pored over the fine print of an official statement.
Given the acrimonious backdrop for what must be the bitterest transfer in recent times, neither side wanted to appear to have backed down in the negotiations.
In the end, though, it was Chelsea who appeared to have outmanoeuvred their rivals, paying just £5 million for a player they valued at £20 million just four weeks ago, and at the same time offloading an estranged 29-year-old with only one year left on his contract, whom they valued at £7 million.
Once an agreement had been reached, negotiations with the players had to be conducted. That was made more complicated by the fact that both Cole and Gallas were on international duty.
It is understood Cole and Chelsea agreed terms in the afternoon, but the paperwork could not be completed until after his medical in Rochdale. That did not begin until 7pm, meaning Chelsea, Cole and his agent, Jonathan Barnett, could not receive and sign the relevant paperwork until 10pm at the earliest.

Amazing how some rules can be broken, & others not, yet again cynical, moi?

i hate chelsea. It's just contant lies, corruption and rule breaking at that club. And from what i've heard apparently most of the people who go and watch chelsea now are part of the old 'prawn sandwich brigade' and are the only ones able to afford tickets to see them play. Seems like a rich boys club now, on the pitch and in the stands too.

where's the passion?

Tell me about it. My old man supports Cardiff City. He doesn't shut up about it. There's a long way to go yet though...

It's a bit hard to believe, definitely.

Apparently Mascherano was told not to move to Man USA by none other than Juan Sebastian Veron.

I think it might be the funniest thing in the world if these two turn out to be the Prem's biggest flops since, well, Kezman and Veron.

Well for funniest read anti-climatic but you know what I mean.

And the Italians are in a spot of bother.... one point from two... with another game to come against France, and two against what looks like an improved Scotland team... What if the world champs aren't at the Euro, two years after the Euro champs were not at the world cup.......
