Harry Redknapp says Arsenal are better than England

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp believes the likes of Kieran Gibbs and Jack Wilshere have no business lurking around the England squad, with regards to their recent call up to the national team.

Speaking to the Daily Mail old Harry wasted no time in sending his message across, as can be imagined our controversial fellow asked questions that begged for answers - in fact, he preferred a swipe aimed at Capello and his somewhat weak squad to advise on what must be done to avoid a similar World Cup occurence in the near future.

"It is a strange old squad.

"Suddenly players not good enough for the World Cup are in the England squad. It's unusual that players not in their club's team are in the England squad.

"Jack Wilshere is a good prospect but I thought England were supposed to do better than any club side. Maybe Arsenal are better than England."

Flattering isn't it? Or maybe Harry for once is right. England is a country blessed with a lot of young and talented players who play regularly for their respective clubs, little wonder he isn't a fan of the Italian's stringent squad selection policy. Fabio
Capello dropped players that were not opportuned to taste action at the just concluded Mundial much to the chagrin of many keen observers, and retained players that have failed to live up to the lofty expectations of the England faithful. It can be argued that some of the players Harry referred to as 'not good enough' for the England team, are actually struggling for a major break at their respective clubs with an exception of a meagre few.

Well, for the sake of The Arsenal, Harry is wrong; first of all, for insulting and undermining the capability of our young Wilshere, and secondly for failing to acknowlege the boy's importance to the Gunners as well as, the rapidity at which he's improved over the last season.
