    Sorry guys I was trying to find a post on Mathieu Debuchy but I couldnt find any so I though this was the best one. Just wanted to know everyone's problem with the guy? Yes he was always behind Bellerin at RB & never as good. He had a few injury problems in his time here so he couldnt do anything about that. When he played though I thought he was always very solid for us in the Cup games. I personally feel sorry for the bloke. When he was fit Wenger never even gave him a chance in the first team. He was a good back up for Bellerin I felt. If Wenger never bothered to give him a chance when he is fit what is the point in signing him? Wasted a few years of his career I felt. Sorry guys I know a few of you have got a problem with him but I never did in the games he filled in for us. Only 30 games in 3 seasons. He even thanked all the supporters for our support after he left.

    Arsenal1508 Mods are unethical! Ozil, come assist me please!

    Why doesn't Wenger think like this a little bit? What is the harm in having Nelson and Nketiah play with the U18s and reserves and then fill a squad place?

    Gary Neville criticised him...rightly so. I think Pep is right in his thinking that game time trumps a place on the bench...but kids can do both.
    I hope Wenger rethinks not having Nelson/Nketiah participate in the youth/reserve matches when 1st team matches are upcoming. He'll never play those before the senior players anyways so what is the harm.

    Already 1:0.

    Wished they would stream more games, at least the one at home.

    4:0 - Hattrick Nketiah.

    Liverpool is still losing 1:0, so we are one point behind them.

    In space of two years our academy has gone from being rather average result wise to one of the strongest in the country both on u18 and u23 level.

    Why was Willock without number and how as he able to play like that?

    According to Jeorge Bird, we were getting the crap kicked out of us all game physically. My guess is he needed a new shirt after some overly physical duels.

    Haha. Willock got a hattrick of assists just like Mhkitaryan (technically). Willock is the sleeper along with Dasilva. Watch him explode when time is right.

    Smith-Rowe got an assist too.

    Also, it has gone unnoticed but Xavier Amaechi has basically become a regular already at U23 level - no doubt aided by Smith-Rowe's so far successful transition to central midfield. John-Jules already hovering around too!

    Smith Rowe is becoming something special. I like De Bruyne comparisons.
