Pearce Is Biased Against Arsenal
Stuart Pearce, England under-21 manager is a hypocrite and Arsenal hater. A strong statement, but one that is justified. Earlier this season Pearce justified not picking Wilshere, who was only 16, by stating that he needs to be playing first team football and if that means leaving Arsenal to go on loan. Well excuse me Mr Pearce, what have you achieved in club management to tell Wenger what he needs to do with his players? He held up Mancienne as a perfect example who was on loan at Wolves.
What has really irked me is his under-21 selection this weekend. Mancienne is no longer on loan at Wolves, he rarely appears for Chelsea, but is an automatic choice from Pearce. Clearly not playing regularly is not an issue for him.
Also in the squad is Fazier Campbell, on loan at Tottenham and not even getting onto the bench, but this too is not a problem for Pearce.
Our only representative is Kierran Gibbs, who is only worthy of a substitute appearance, despite playing more games since December that quite a lot of the squad.
Pearce had even stated, in the past, that Theo would have benefitted with a loan spell.
Pearce has since stated that he wants Walcott to be available for the under-21 championships this summer. To be honest this is the last thing Walcott needs especially as he is recovery from injury after injury.
I may be paranoid, but Pearce is just one more person who criticises Arsenal because we have a large overseas contingent of players
