Wow, just reading an article about the players from Oviedo (Spain) who are doing well in England, and I forgot, Pirès is also from here/there (genetically).
It's amazing, but, if y'all saw the football base programme here, you'd be wondering why there weren't more.
This quote from Arsene about Santi was nice:
Cazorla is technically perfect. He is really fast and has a reportory which is uncommonly ample, which gives us many variances in attack.
Ah, there will be more. I've seen the system firsthand for fifteen years. Just think when we find out how to get the beasts performing at this level (we've got kids at 12,14 years old who are 6'3+ and are pretty damned strong with ball skills). Imagine a Santi Cazorla who is Javi size. Obscene. Totally obscene. Yet, this is the future.
