For those of you who don't understand the FA's latest and most ridiculous new rule, there is an excellent summary of the 'home grown' rule here courtesy of 7AM Kickoff. It is quite clear that this rule will do nothing to help develop English talent, it is more like a massive prolapsed haemorrhoid, it is a royal pain in the arse.
Whatever the ins and outs of it, our squad is under no pressure at all as a result of the new rule, there is plenty of space to sign several foreign players over the age of 21. I had a quick peek at Tottenham's squad and I can't see it being too much of a trouble to them, they have around twenty over 21s. Chelsea need to watch themselves, they have 18 foreign over-21s by my counting. Man City have about 25 over 21s and 16 of these are foreign, they are sailing close to the wind. Man United have 26 over 21s and 17 of these are foreign.
I could go on but the point is that despite the woeful rambling of the uneducated anti-Arsenal press, we are in a very strong position squad-wise for the new rule. That's all for now, other than have a look at these quotes from fat Sam and have a chuckle, what an immense hypocrite the fat walrus is.
