You make it sound like Kelly and Robinson wouldn't be at the club if they weren't local.
Indeed. The cream rises to the top.
By and large, all of our most promising talents just happen to have been English.
Insua was given chances, because he deserved them. Pacheco was given some, because he deserved them. And when Suso really warrants them, he'll get them.
Sterling, Flanagan, Robinson, Kelly, Spearing, Shelvey. They've all been the pick of the players available in their positions.
Its not as if Kelly or Flanagan have been keeping a young Dutch RB out of the team is it. Or that Spearing was getting picked as a holding midfielder over Suso (who doesnt play there).
