8 homgrown players over 21

I've gone into it a bit more, with all these new European and South American rumours Any English premiership team must have 8 Homegrown players over the age of 21 when they name their 25 man Squad, so it is going to really affect us this season. We've lost James Collins talk of Byram Carrol leaving and Antonio so how many Homegrown players in the 25 man Squad? I will start this off Cresswell, Noble, Pass,Cullen, Hugill, Browne, Carrol and Fredricks. I make that 8 but there will be players not named in the squad because they will be out on loan Pass, Hugill and Brown. Carrol could be sold so we will need a Mawson Evans Or Wiltshire to make up the necessary core of the club. So when we start talking about Dedonker , Carvello, Pastore,Anderson all great players but we are right on the Borderline and can only get a few of these players so we comply with the FA's rules. So what do we do? got to buy British.

Rice is home grown, snodgrass, Oxford, probably quina. Whose pass?

Jack Wiltshire has been a rumour for several years now and has just played his best season injury free for a long time at Arsenal. Not sure if he has signed a new contract at Arsenal or not yet? If he hasn't you can bet Sullivan will be out to sign him as another cheapie freebie plus Pelligrini also wants him. This player I like and he seems to be over his injury problems and unlucky not to be in the England squad. I think he might just be our next signing as Arsenal have offered him a three year contract but also a cut in wages which might be to our advantage?

Rice is 19, Oxford is 20, so they are too young, Josh Pask (sorry about the spelling mistake) is 22. Quina is Portuguese and has played for them at youth level. As for Snodgrass didn't put him in because I don't think he will be here, London does not suit him or his wife and kids, think he will go to Cardiff, One I did miss was Josh Cullen he's 22 but whether he will go out on loan -your guess is as good as mine so it all leaves things a bit tight for new foreign players unless their British. Think we need a Goal keeper Butland or Foster or if we get Wiltshire it will help the situation other wise its 1out 1in.

so there is another one, so I would think that the dildo bros will get in a couple of home grown players to make sure that we have enough, preferably cheap ones and with our overseas players that we already have Pellegrini will need a few quality players to help Lanzini and Arno, it's just getting the money out of the tight arses.

Yes cast I know quina is Portuguese but this home grown thing includes foreigners. I'm not sure the exact ruling but by home grown they have to have been either at the club or country, by a certain age and have spent a certain amount of years too. I'm thinking quina might qualify because he has been here and before that wasn't it Chelsea? So he sounds home grown to me. It's not just British players. I wouldn't be surprised if we got someone like Heaton who would qualify.
