    Really did well in his PL debut away against tough side really surprised Wenger gave him more than 15 minutes.

    Looks calm/confident playing in a tough game, looks a good talent to succeed.

    Looked neat and tidy. Felt he could have tried to beat a player.

    Is he quick?

    Seemed to fade really quickly but looked out best player for five minutes.

    Didn't really put a foot wrong. Kept it ticking, beat his man when he needed to. We looked better with him on the pitch. Well done lad.

    Deserves to start in the F.A cup.

    In that case, if I were Wenger, I would sub him in virtually every game for whoever needs a rest. Most likely Campbell, who gets tired from his workrate, but also possible Özil or Alexis because they play consecutively

    If we are winning, he experiences keeping a lead, playing in a confident attack, and game time.

    If we are losing, we benefit from his great composure and fresh legs.

    Would rather see him start ahead of Ox and Theo at the moment. Showed composure and intelligence to hold on to the ball, not panic and move it into space to get attacks going. Something neither Ramsey, Ox, Flamini or Theo could do.

    The way the foursome just sat on the ball like deer in the headlights at the end of game only to lose it moments later when there were plenty of ways to move and retain it was appalling! :mad:

    He's got a composure on the ball that far too many in the squad lack. He looks casual in the best possible way, just controls the ball and does what he wants with it. I like the look of him. Hopefully with our creative players coming back we won't have to see much of him but he may well be a nice option in the near future. He can't offer any less than poor Theo is at the moment, that's for sure.

    Iwobi IMO marks the first of a batch who have a full grasp of Wengerball at it's best. Wilshere being the exception of his lot of course. Iwobi has all of the fundamentals down, the versatility; the movement; the first touch and technique; the awareness of his teammates. There are more like him coming with the likes of Jeff and Malen who are outside recruits to a certain degree, but in terms of Hale End, there's Willock and Nelson, who display a similar level of intelligence and understanding of Wenger's style of play.

    Iwobi is the future.

    I hope he gets a full game against Burnley.

    The difference in the team when Iwobi came on just left me so mind blown. I'm still rather speechless to be honest. The way his composure and calmness made the attack so fluid in comparison to when Theo was on has sold me on him.

    Want to see more.

    You seem to know a lot about our Academy, do you watch them play often?

    When I can. I've been to Underhill for some games when I've been near the area and seen a couple U21 games at Emirates Stadium (it's like £4 to get in). Otherwise, I mainly just keep a closer eye on highlights and loans.

    I have not been for a while though, so I'm not as much in the know regarding the potential of the current U18 team other than Reiss Nelson and a few others.

    This lad's growing up fast. Was very composed today and looked an upgrade on Theo!

    That nutmeg in the midfield to completely burn the Stoke player when he was being pressed was silky smooth.

    Looks a proper prospect. Needs a loan next year or Wenger needs to find him more minutes. Does more on the wing than Chambo/Wilshere ever did.

    Such a huge talent. Love how we make a space for these kind of players in our squad. Hope he gets more playing time.

    He has a better first touch than ramsey, walcott and the ox.

    He needs to get to Welbz level, özil is on his way there too..
