Discussion in 'Arsenal' started by Fitzgerald#11, Aug 20, 2012.
i like the look of akpom, very lanky and skillful/pacey for 16
U21s won 3-0 vs Blackburn today
Watt, Eisfield and Henderson the scorers
Watt is still at the club???
Watched the highlights and I'm really excited about Aneke and Eisfeld.
Some of the 1-touch passing play was outstanding
Aneke is a boss.
I'm telling you. The guy really can't be far from the first team. He must be really lacking in one area of his game not to be considered already.
Probably pace. He makes alex song look like theo
wenger rates the heck out of him but, from what i saw in preseason, he's not remotely ready. talented, though.
looks like boateng is doing a 6-month loan at oxford.
2-0 to Arsenal at half-time vs Marseille. Yennaris and Akpom with the goals.
Looks like a very dominant performance so far, should be a greater margin on the score board
3-0 Akpom again with an assist from Olsson, who seems to be running things in midfield. Hopefully he will have a full, injury free season this time around. Looks a good prospect
Yennaris popping up with a goal? That's not a name I'd expect on the scoresheet!
all nextgen and u21(reserve) matches are free entry.
ps. here are highlights of the marseille match.
Apkom, Olsson and Bellerin look good but I am absolutely amazed by Gnabry.
He is the real deal, there are talks at Colney that he will be on a fast track
to the first team. I would not be surprised. He is that good.
Gnabry certainly looks the real deal. Who would you guys compare him to though in terms of a type of player? Is he a winger or cm?
gnabry looks more oxlade-chamberlain than walcott. if the his number (and where he's played) is any indication, they're probably looking at him outside. he's been 11 in all 3 games, i think.
first time i saw toral. he had some nice passes. the number indicate he was playing pivot. i wonder if wenger might consider him for the pivot while moving wilshere forward or if he would consider having wilshere and toral in the back together, splitting holding duties.
i wonder why it's taken so long for us to see angha. as i understand it, he's rated and i'd much rather see him than meade (although meade has the bonus value of being able to make arshavin and cazorla look tall).
poor keeper on trial. he had nothing at all to do.
I'm interested to buy all the availbale games of NEXT GEN Seriers 2012-2013.
Where I can ask?
Wow. All the games I've seen here, our kids have absolutely dominated so far. I hope we can add a few to the first team in the next couple of years. Is it irrational to be excited about these teenagers?
Depends. Our U21s look strong, our U18s look somewhat mediocre (despite a few players appearing on both teams)
remember how much of a step up it is in level!
Hope we can get a stream for tomorrow's game at Olympiacos.
aneke is another who has gone on loan. it's back to league one for him, this time with crewe. is anybody familiar with how they play and whether it will benefit him?
crewe have a good young team and a solid academy, dario gradi is still around, think he may be football director? they got promoted to league 1 last year
