    So close yet so far away ,Alex more likely to be more accomodating than Maitland I think .

    Yeah my uncle is good friends and used to play football with Iwobi's dad. Still a longshot though. *cries*

    Needs to start vs Hull to see what we have.

    The midfield is a mess with no clear partnerships even with Xhaka & Elneny back.

    Could play with any of Coq, Ox, Xhaka, Ramsey, Elneney.

    Don't think he would have made that much difference v Chelsea but get him in vs Hull please.

    Give him a chance. Atleast he can make a pass, unlike Coq.

    Wenger bottled it. This boy should have started. He was so comfortable on the ball. I hope he continues to get some minutes in the premier league as well.

    But the entertainment value wasn't that good. I waited for this game for 5 days. Been looking forward to watching the young guns.

    We dont have a better player for the deeper midfield role. Sharp short passes, always alert defensively & covers ground quickly. Sure he will get a chance after our next defeat.

    Wengers never bottled playing a youngster in his career, behave.

    He should have started. Looked far more comfortable than our other midfielders even with the limited minutes. Extremely disappointed with the decision not to start him. Much better positioning from him too, both when we had the ball and when we didn't. Shepherds well rather than diving in.

    While Iwobi has a break I don't see why AMM can't play as the midfielder on the wing that Wenger likes.

    From Wenger? no way, he'll just pick whoever is playing least well at the time but is one of his favourites

    Would give him a shot.

    Again great positioning against sutton, monreal vanished and who jumps in his position to cover ANM!

    He is doing the basics well, something that are first team struggle to do.

    Looked impervious against a strong U23 team. Very impressive again.

    Same as iwobi, he's not what we need as a club another player who's a one trick pony, he can pass and that's just about it. He's not capable of bossing a midfield, he will crumble like the others when we come up against a stronger better team!

    Yes he did. Loved his composure. I dont expect him to start any game this season, or even have bigger impact from the bench, but his time is coming.
    Very excited about it

    I was really impressed with his positioning overall and he way he used his pace and dribbling. It is like he has been watching the likes of Verratti and Weigl and molding his game towards that style.

    I agree sadly - he wont figure much this season but he should. He is PL ready IMO.
