Beckham has been superb in LaLiga and Michael Owen scored plenty of goals, so you cant simply say, "dont buy english players".
Im not saying barca should sign english players though, but to be honest, nationality only matters if it is EU or Non-EU due to restrictions! Does it matter if they are english, italian or japanese? NO! As long as they are good enough.
Its absolute bull to say english players have poor technique, Joe Cole, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley Cole, Lamps and Gerrard all have great technique and thats just the players i can think of.
People moan about Gerrards technique but just look at his range of passing to see his technique is superb and his 1st touch is top draw aswell. The same goes for lampard.
If barca were to sign Lampard or Gerrard i would question the need for midfielders but they would only improve the squad. If MVB was replaced by either it would be a great addition but that wont happen so not really worth talking about!
One english player barca should sign though is arguably the best left back in the world, Ashley Cole!
