It was great reading how Henri Lansbury captained the under 19’s along with Gavin Hoyte, Jay Thomas and Rhys Murphy, with Ramsey and Barazite having good games for their countries as well.
I’m glad that Lansbury had a great game and wondered why he was so poor when he played in pre season, and it was because he was played out of position, that seems to be the way Wenger brings them on so I guess time will tell if they’ll feature this term, he had a blinder by all accounts, Arsene I hope you play him in his favoured position in the Carling cup and drop Randall, he doesn’t look anything better than ordinary for me, but nor does Song, and no one agrees with me on that one!
I guess I should feel flattered so I will, but don’t forget who was there first! I’m not sure I was as happy as he was to see our manager spending nothing, but time will tell, Arsene won’t pay something for a player if he feels the fee is too high, well that’s admirable boss, but you don’t control the market and with that attitude I guess all we can ever look for are kids and the likes of Silvestre and Bitchslap.
There you go, no use in going over old ground, but I hope Capello plays Theo tomorrow, I know this site has mixed feelings on the lad, but I really believe Theo will be the future of England and be one of the worlds best, I really, really rate him.
We have some great prospects in the reserves and I think when they get a bit older we’ll be a fantastic side, with what I’ve seen so far, I hope we can keep them, then we have the younger, youngsters like Luke Freeman to come, I really hope I live that long but being an Arsenal fan in 2 or 3 years time could be amazing, let’s hope the likes of Wilshere, Coquelin, Ramsey and Lansbury make their mark this year, I know Theo will.
Have a good day Grovers, I’ll join you when I land.
