Loyal to the Cause?

In this Era of Mega-Buck, there is no loyalty unless they are homegrown from the Academy, and foreginers not from Spain and Italy where their premier leagues are a match to English premeirship league.

French player, Dutch player and Scandinavian palyers do not have a mega-buck leagues and they tend to stay loyal to their English clubs...unless mega-buck moves to Spain or Italy.

Build up a Spine of English and British talents - Walcott, Ramsey, Wilshere, Gibbs, Randall, Lansbury, Jay Thomas, Kyle Bartley, Murphy, Benik Afobe, etc plus French players liek COquelin, Traore, SUnuu, Ddutch palyers like barazite and that TUrkish guy,...that is your 'core" of loyal players which has the greatest probability of ending their career wiht an ENglish club.

Fabregas? Merida?
Depending on success of Arsenal, they wil stay or leave, Open verdict.
