We have signed a young Norwegian,
most probably of Middle Eastern origin.
He's 16 and he plays for Norway U-17
I think.

Google News his name and you'll find some
news about him, naturally you'll have to
learn Norwegian first.

Personally I like the idea of having an Arab,
maybe even a Muslim, in our team.

nice :DD even more positives for united.

i love how our team picks players up from when there young and then train them up. arsenal do it too.

chelsea and city are shit clubs always will be.... shame on city +++ there trying to be the new star galatica madrid ??? hahahahahhaha
Agreed. If United and Arsenal are rich now it's because they started
off as small clubs and slowly made their way to the top. I think I read
that between 1951 and 1956 Sir Matt Busby didn't buy one player,
amazing when you think about it.

Chelsea and Man City, credit to them for making it to where they were
prior to Abramovich and Shinawatra, but all they became after their
takeovers was due to money.

tommy taylor and billy whelan and johnny berry are three signings in those years from top of my head so i dont know where you read that mate but its way wrong
That's why I said I think.

It was actually between 53-57.

I wasn't born yet so I can't certify but I think a chap did some
research and found that.

I'm guessing he just recruited young players with no contracts
or promoted other ones.

Today British workers striked against "British Jobs" going to foreigners,
let's hope that doesn't happen at United. I'd rather we bought young
players than big buys but I'm not going to descriminate on the basis of
nationality or race. However, it is true that sometimes when a manager
has to chose between an English born and bred chap that might have
grown up at the club and a foreign chap who's trying to gain confidence
and find his feet he's more liable to pick the foreigner for a variety of
reasons.

Dont you dare say another word or I will have you banned, I'm not joking. England is the home of football and we produce the best football. We might not win Ballon D'ors left right and centre but EVERY CLUB IN EUROPE would pay hundreds of millions for a Rooney, Gerrard, Terry, Rio, Lampard etc. Dont get me started about THAT Euro qualification.
Well, piazza certainly got told.

Bang on justice... its exactly because people look to those 200+ countries that local english talent goes to waste or undeveloped.
No. A club aims to do its best and if foreign players are
better than homegrown players then they deserve to be
playing and not the homegrown players. Don't forget, these
players are paid thousands of pounds because the Premiership
is the great league it is, which is in great part thanks to foreigners.

Henry, Cantona, Bergkamp, Zola, just to name a few. If it wasn't
for foreigners the Premiership would be like the Polish League or
whatever, probably more homegrown talent but less well-paid and
less competitive.

English players have little to complain about, if they want first
team football they just need to look downwards. Kieran Richardson
is a perfect example.
