    My only wish for Iwobi is he stay away from injuries. the guy is so special.

    England should have done more to get him, but Iwobi seems keen on Nigeria anyway.

    Iwobi gunning down Ox's Arsenal career ;)

    Its actually hard, because Iwobi got something no player who has trained a lot under Wenger will ever have, unless it comes natural to him - he doesnt just blast the ball, he actually takes his time and tries to place the ball into the net with skill, rather than pace and luck.

    Seeing him take a couple of extra touches if he knows the shot will be blocked or the angle is wrong is very exciting

    Iwobi has a brain to start off with.

    But I was fooled with the Ox hype too, so meh.

    I'm worried that Wilshere is the new Diaby though :(

    True, but then again Matt Damon is an actor and Ali a boxer. Better than the 'fraud' Kane too?

    samshere Why so serieuse?

    We'll replace him with Chamberlain when his form drops and hope their drops in form dovetail with each others.

    He was fantastic and showed some good interplay with Danny. Is this, minus Cech, our current best team?

    I believe this kid. For all his technical attributes, it's his intelligence and confidence on the ball that makes me believe. Always showing for the ball, great touch and movement. Does not look out of place at this level at all.

    Alex Iwobi has been outstanding in the last few games. He picks the right moment to do everything and looks smooth on the ball. I would be satisfied if he will become as good as his uncle.

    What? No.

    Wilshere will walk into this team when fit. So will Santi.

    Bellerin Kos Gabriel Monreal
    Coq Santi
    Alexis Özil Wilshere

    El-neny is good but he doesn't offer us anything near what Santi does (nor Wilshere should Wenger choose to put him there). Iwobi is a superb talent and looks like he'll be a top player but he's 19. He will come in slowly.

    I don't know, Kane had a pretty amazing performance at Wrestlemania

    Certainly a close one

    He's been superb recently, didn't think he had it in him just yet to do stuff like he is. So happy for the lad, long may it continue!

    I don't want to get ahead of myself, but who would you guys compare him to at the moment?

    Kid is fantastic. Beautiful ball control and overall technique. So simple but effective.

    Very silky, this boy is a talent. Very well rounded.

    You have to wonder what goes through Ox's head sometimes. So far this season he's watched not one, but TWO, squaddies outperform him. Iwobi has matched Ox's tally for the season in the last three weeks.

    I love Ox, but if this doesn't stick a rocket up his arse nothing will.

    Becoming a goal threat, which makes me very, very happy. Showed an aptitude for box-play at U21 level, and he appears to be a player who can play in all the 4 attacking positions comfortably. He adds goals to that?

    I guess what makes me even happier is that there is even more where he came from!
