    Shaaban, Keown, Wiltord, Kanu, Stepanovs. Bye bye.

    Papadopulos is gone too - he only lasted a season.

    sad we didn't get a chance to say bye to kanu and wiltord

    kanu's hattrick v chelsea and wiltord's winner against man u will live long in the memory.

    Popadopulos did a great job in the reserves, and Shabaan never let us down. stepanovs also played well a couple of times.

    Hope they have fruitful careers.

    Pity on Holloway.

    Hard for all the lads that went through the Arsenal system and were released.

    Hopefully their training and education will prove to be assets as the move on to other clubs.

    WHOA.... there are some REAL interesting names on there....

    - Micheal Papadopolus (didnt they just sign him?)

    - Paulinho (wasnt he the next Ashley Cole? of course, now we have Clichy)

    - Rami, Igors, Wiltord, Kanu - Expected

    - the rest - not quite sure who some of them are (especially the scholars...)

    thats a huge chunk of players gone, think we will maybe see some more youth signings coming through.

    Juan who has gone to Flamengo was the new Cole... just too small at 5.4.

    Well to be expected I suppose.

    Every team's youth system is like this. You train them up and hopefully 1/20 will make it to the first team. The rest will just have to make do and move on.

    Bentley, Hoyte, Ryan Garry, Pennant, Senderos, Aliadiere and Clichy.

    All these lads are the closest to breaking through to the first team but even for them, success isn't always guaranteed.

    Why Papadopulos? I thought he was a "starlet".

    That's what I thought.

    He probably wasn't as good as he was meant to be.
