From his videos he does seem have that ability of being so good with ball despite his young age similar to saka. Seriously if he made right impression in pre season he should compete with Tomi
Compete with Tomi? :lol: For what, the 7 games he plays in a season?

Something to forward to in pre-season to see how he gets on.

A Championship loan would probably be the best thing for him once the season starts but the advantage he has is that he plays in a position where there is an opening if he impresses.

Exciting prospect. I'd much rather give this lad a chance than play Cedric when Tomi is out/rested. If he's good enough, play him!

Like the look of this lad. Hopefully, he'll get minutes this coming season. As long as Cedric doesn't get minutes, it's all good.

Only qualifying for the Europa League, could be the making of young players like him.

Should get a chance in Europe this season (but so should Saliba in 2020, so kinda expect Mustafi to be re-signed and played over him) heard lots of good things about him, hope he does well.

This notion that we should loan him and use Cedric for one more year is crazy. Cedric is not good enough. Norton-Cuffy will instantly offer more than Cedric given his talent at the moment. His potential is then also very high IMO. I think he can become a starting RB for us.

This. Cedric should be the player of last resort. He hasn't been as bad as some might say but the drop off from Tomi us massive.

I've got no problem with giving BNC a shot in the first team, but don't you think it's a bit unrealistic to expect a young player who's had half a season in League One to suddenly be good enough to be PL standard? Nuno wasn't and he had 3000 minutes of Portuguese division one... Cedric has a career as a mid table PL player and full international.

I'm optimistic about BNC I just don't want the pressure on his shoulders of being our next great hope before we know how be adjusts to top level football. Seen it with Balogun and lots of others before.

I don't want to put any pressure on him at all. He's Tomi's understudy and if he has to play more games than expected, then Cedric comes in should he struggle. If we manage him correctly, he should be Clichy level at worst but he must be given a proper, scheduled chance.

Agreed. If Tavares could be passable in some games for us, I don't see why this lad couldn't. If Arteta wants to die on the sword of a young team then actually play the young players so that a proper manager has more to work with once he's sacked.

Or he just slots in no problem & takes to the PL without much issue (See Saka).

Some have it, some don't. Hopefully he gets a chance to show what he can do.

If he can be a hybrid of AWB & TAA, that will be perfect please!

Yeah that's fair enough and I like the idea of giving him a chance as well. My fear would be that he misses out on a loan, has a couple of timid performances and then gets benched for half a season where he could have been getting genuine game time. But with EL and the cups he should be able to get some lower level matches hopefully whatever happens. If he takes his chance it would be amazing.

Douzi came from Ligue 2 and immediately started performing for us. It's not like we're expecting him to become a starter anyway. He needs to at least spend the first half of next season here.
