    Let's be honest. Lacazette is nothing special. If Eddie is physically strong enough to challenge PL defenders this year, I don't see why he couldn't compete for the CF position.

    RIP Sule. Eddie definitely need more chances than he was afforded last year otherwise send him on loan.

    00:14-00:18 is more impressive than the videos you have posted.

    If you want to prove that he is a great player, you should show 00:14-00:18, and nketiah should do more of that.

    The tap-in and your clips means very little, the one I posed (00:14-00:18) above shows how good he can be.

    He is OK playing against top players so I have no worries about seeing him against Newcastle :)

    If we feel a player is close to the level we require I find it hard to accept that if we loan out the player they have to go the Championship to get required minutes. I get the risk of that player ending up on the bench but we just need to identify a club in a top league (ideally PL) where he would be at least in the top 2 of the roster for his position(s) and make him prove himself there. If the player can't prove himself there to be played regularly, unless the manager at the loan club was just terrible, it would be more on the player just not being good enough for Arsenal. We need to take some risk, both for the player, and for us.

    Starting from your last point, no-one knows who will make it at Arsenal or not. I for one thought Chuba had a higher chance than Iwobi but see what happened? So when people say xyz won't make it at Arsenal, I just brush it off.

    Also, I'm totally against giving players first team games simply because they are from our academy. Especially in games we need to win. Years ago when the Carling cup was still the milk cup, we could afford to play our youth team and still win. These days the "small" teams play their first team in the competition and Man City's third team is almost as good as many first teams.

    On Willock, I still think he'll have a chance this season even if we bring a midfielder in. He's the only one of the young gunners that I can expect to have game time if they don't go on loan.
    It's almost certain Elneny and Torreira won't start the season given their extended holidays and I think the former will be sold anyways. Willock will start our early game(s) and that'll be his opportunity to impress. I think he can play alongside Xhaka till Torreira is available and then play alongside Torreira if he proves himself.
    Eddie needs a loan move. Unfortunately for loans, you don't choose where to go. Clubs have to show interest and if he's good enough, he shouldn't have a challenge with that.

    Nketiah should learn from Martinelli

    I’m not saying he is incapable, but he should do more of this.

    Nketiah first goal: https://streamja.com/Rawz

    Nketiah's second: https://streamja.com/KOm7

    Nketiah is a different player, though. Perhaps he never needed to do it.

    The first goal, credit to him knowing there’s space on the right, so he drag the ball there and shoot. But it isn’t that hard to pull off. Anyone can score the second goal to be honest.

    Nketiah is great at 1:28-1:36 and 2:18-2:26

    He does it more often now than when he was in youth level, so I’m glad that he is improving. But he need some consistency on this, he need to be able to do this every match.

    He needs to learn these sick skills, beautiful one-twos and through passes.

    Can anyone send Nketiah this clip so he can practice some step over or even elastico? Modern striker can’t just be quick and have good finishing. They need to get involve in the build up play and be good at it.

    Maybe, but if you look at the buildup, he was being marked by two defenders, shrugged one off, and then he takes up an nice position.

    That's a bit unfair. RVP was a unique talent and he shouldn't be set as an example for young players.

    Would prefer him to go out on loan and play 30-40 games next season. It would be far better for his development than staying here and getting a couple of starts and sub appearances.
