A good start would be to perhaps sign British players for this, they often have more passion and drive to perform for English clubs in their latter years.Yeah I agree we do need a few experienced heads in the team.
Its finding them thats the hard part. We seem to find the ones who are happy to pick up a wage who feel they have nothing more to achieve. No personal goal.
We are on the other side of the spectrum, signing ageing Brazilians... a nation filled with mercenary players who play in China, Ukraine and Russia as early as their mid twenties just for a nice wage. Not saying they all are like that, but a random guy from South America has no loyalties to an English side, unless they've been there their whole career. I really do think being born and raised in the country really helps with these kind of things.
