We added two very good English players to our already existing core of British players. Chambers has already proven to be a massive hit among the fans. Welbeck too a very good addition to Arsenal squad. He is already proving to be an Arsenal type player with his injury during the international break. Welcome to Arsenal Danny Welbeck.
Is there an incentive for adding English players to the Club? Are we buying British players to use them mainly as poster boys? Are they really good enough to make it at Arsenal?
Man City won 2013-2014 EPL with only one English player in their starting Eleven. The Successful Wenger Era was dominated by French Players. Barcelona and Bayern Munich Dominate Europe with their own country players. No English Player plays for Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 2014 worldcup proved that there is a huge gap between British teams and rest of the world. The Golden Generation was humiliated. Why do Arsenal keep adding English core when Chelsea, MCFC and Manchester united are getting rid of them?
Arsenal being an English team it makes sense to have majority of English players, But I cannot tolerate the idea of using them as poster boys when much accomplished players in the squad gets less attention. Releasing the Arsenal Jersey with these poster boys cannot be justified.
Ramsey, Wilshere, Gibbs, Ox, Chambers, Walcott, Jenkinson are part of Arsenal team for a while. Chambers and Welbeck have been added to this core. Arsene, Arsenal and English media hype these players too much before they actually make it. Ramsey was the only standout star in that core group. Gibbs and Walcott proved to be consistent. I am yet to see a consistent world class performances from Ox and Jack. Apart from some flashes of brilliance I did not see anything extraordinary from them. Sterling and Sturridge has done more to their clubs than Jack and Ox. We need to be realistic. We are already in our way to hype Chambers as our ” New Tony Adams”.
Sturridge might be doing well at Liverpool but chelsea bought better player than him. Welbeck is replaced by one of the top strikers in Europe.
These players are consistently on the Media and Arsenal website. The Club should make Arteta, Sanchez, Ozil, Per, Koscielny, Santi etc as our poster boys. They should be the face of Arsenal Football club. World Class loyal footballers should be the face of our club.
Many fan polls have shown that Welbeck should be our main striker ahead of Giroud. Let Welbeck earn his main striker role. Lets not hand him the main striker role by fan polls.
I hope the English core repay the faith by becoming world class players and play for Arsenal for many long years.
