I've just recently noticed (becos of the CHampions League) that there alot of successful German-Turkish footballers,( which I suppose are equivalent to British-Asians), such as Ozil, Gundogan and Sahin to name a few
I have noticed that as well but Turks are actually good at football.

Turkey would destroy India or Pakistan in a match.

There are also lots of European-Arab/Berber ones.

It's a lot easier for an Asian to become a doctor/pharmacist/dentist etc than a pro-footballer.

I think it's mainly to do with culture to be honest & lack of parental support, I mean I love my sport especially football but when I was younger I didn't really get the support from my parents, they were stereotypical Asian parents that just wanted me to become doctor/lawyer/engineer etc. I think & hope that the next generation of Asian parents will not be like that though & attitudes will change over the time.

I'm an Asian and I've been playing footy for eight years I'm thirteen now if ur wondering y there's no Asian footballers listen to this I was playing for my local team and I got chosen for a trial at arsenal I went to it and while I was playing they told my dad they don't pick Asians so how on earth r we meant to play if academies don't accept us and trust in London all Asians I know play for there local teams and we are all over 5'6 so we r physically as strong as white n black kids My parents who r not like the typical Asian parents encouraged me to be a footballer we have a season ticket at arsenal n we go there all the time n my parents never want me to miss a match that's y I've taken footy for eight years and I'm going to play football until I get in professionally I've got another trial at brentford this Saturday hopefully ill get in so yeh Asians can play footy n we don't eat curry I've never ate curry in my life

If you look at grass roots football there isn't many asians playing.
I'm from Birmingham and my brothers been involved in grass routes football for years, you just don't see them playing it. So if they aren't playing then they obviously wont get scouted.
I'm Asian n I live in London I've just been scouted by brentford n before arsenal n trust me in London there's at leat 5 indian players in a team n soon u will see the Asian generation because now Asian parents r forcing their children to play footy n my parents force me to do footy that's y I'm close to being a professional I play for my school team local team county of harrow n I do arsenal soccer schools

Yeah i think that's a big reason, I can't imagine an Asian boy going up to their parents and telling them they're going to be a footballer lol
Well mate I just did n I'm Asian lol n my parents r relaxed n they act like white parents thats y I've had trials at arsenal n brentford

The best football player is Rooney not a black man

Feel that the white British need to be given the opportunity and not be pushed out by immigrants like in other jobs

Don't our youth systems prefer strong kids over small ones? Not sure how true it is but I'm sure everyone's heard the 'Messi wouldn't have met our youth system's criteria' thing. Asians don't tend to be bulky and so aren't given a look in by scouts.
I'm Asian and me and my mates who are Asian aswell are all 5'9 and we all have muscles n six packs and it works because all of us have been chosen by academy's to play for them however some academies are racist as for example my dad was told by a scout who coached watford that they don't pick asians n he was brown I was about to punch him but my dad pulled me away

Some Asian families are riciulously conservative whilst others more recently aren't so I can see Asian footballers coming eventually with the current generation who have grown up to love the game

'Meant for the English?' (Btw, people are still considered English if they aren't white). That was a rude comment, eh?

If the jobs were meant for the whites, they would have them, wouldn't they? If they aren't as dedicated, smart or talented enough, that's their fault. The Asians doctors (as well as the whites obv) are also the people saving lives- would you rather have a low-quality white doctor or an Indian one who does his job properly? If a white man does it better, the Asian man won't get the job. Simple.

Survival of the fittest, mate.

Forgive me if i'm wrong but I think the closest we have is Michael Chopra who has an Indian father. But if you like at the strides the UAE and Asian football is coming along it won't be long I'm sure until we have a more diverse Asian scene in top flight English football!

But they have not been given the chance as the university places were taken up by them.
Some have to survive on the dole

Some are killed like Lee Rigby and the EDL are not happy with it at all

The admission tutors and employers have to covertly discriminate in order to satisfy the quota that they want

Is Choudry a Sikh? I am not religious so not aware

I did not say all love extremism but most in their minds do, that is what I have been told

Many different people identify Muslims in different ways whether it is the white robe or others
