    Iwobi has all the physical attributes to be a WC player. Unfortuntely like so many of our players from the wenger era he's a bit of a p ussy and mentaly weak. He needs to drop down a level and become the main man at low level mid size team, because it seems he doesnt have the head for the top level.

    Depsite his very good dribbling he gets him self in to some great position but he panics in the final third consistantly, wrong pass, miss hit shot.

    For Iwobi it's all between the ears, unforunately...he lacks that killer mentality.

    Alex if you're reading this (very unlikely), but I hope it p isses you off (and if it doesnt it validates my point) in the Europa league final, go prove me wrong!

    Then you go on to list the reasons why he won't ever be a world class talent. Hugely hypocritical post. He's also slow.
    The only thing Alex offers at the moment is a bit of dribbling. Otherwise he's a squad option st best.

    Yes and all those reasons I listed none physical ( to explain again, I believe his physical attributes are WC but the mental aspect is what's preventing him from doing so). You should really read posts more carefully.

    You said he is a bit of a p ussy.. And then added mentally weak which insinuates that you meant body strength..

    He took his shot well. His dribbling was on point as usual. He also had 3 key passes according to whoscored. I hope that's a sign of more things to come. We need a true goalscorer on the right if we are playing iwobi on the left. That would make up for his lack of goals. Meanwhile, I say keep practising. Practice taking all sorts of shots.

    Move him into midfield. He looked good when dribbling through the middle third, wide or in the middle.

    I just can't give up on Iwobi, but a move might be best for all parties.

    Was surprised how well he finished this one imagine its was 1-0 and he did that it would gave left all the team.

    Still sell for 20m but I think he'll stay as backup

    Iwobi will become a great player if God forbids injury on him. He is one of the positives this season. Every time he is on, the team is injected with urgency and energy.

    A wonderful goal when it didn't matter and hes full of energy. Panicking in the final third and poor decision making will limit his chance to be a very good player.

    Great goal. Otherwise more of the same.

    Lol he scored and picked out Lacazette for the easiest chance of the game in about 20 mins. At least he tried (and succeeded) things to make something happen.

    Needs to sort his mentality going into next year as he actually has a good mix of physical and technical ability which is virtually unheard of in our squad.

    If he can show this sort of bottle next year he could still develop into a player. Ability is there. Mentality/decision making still a question mark.

    He's too slow to beat a player. Will never be more than a good squad option for a top 4 side.
    This post shows how low our ambitions have sunk.

    He played well but let's not act like this guy is good enough. He's rubbish.

    It's a poor cast, but he's been our best attacking midfielder this season. Iwobi should have started the final and is the least of our problems.

    He’s never making it as a winger. Just play the boy in his preferred position. If he’s still awful, then that’s that.

    I think we have seen enough of him to know that he is not going to reach that level. We have spent so many years giving him opportunities. This is the time to sell him and give those chances to someone else.

    Would sell if an offer around £25million comes along. However if he can sort out his mental game, which is clearly his biggest issue. He would be worth around £50million.

    He's sooo talented, his in ability to make the right decision in crucial moments let's him down time and again. Needs to see a sports physcologist or something, because there are clearly some underlying issues there.

    Don't think it's only that. Think his body positioing is kind of off, too. Often he'll just be in a bad body position in relation to where the ball comes from and how he receives it or where he needs to put the ball, limiting his decision making options even before the mental thing comes in.

    Not good enough for starter as he is but good choice from the bench. Maybe if he keeps adding to his game he'll be worth a spot in the first 11, and thats the one hing I will say about him, he definitely looks like he will keep adding.... whether it will be enough who knows
