Eddie Nketiah: Price Of The Brick Going Up

At least he tried, that Auba chance came from him getting the ball forward.

But his value arguably decreased this time anyway

Not fault his performance i thought he done well playing outside his position but his miss from 1 yard out is simply not good enough specially would have put us in wining position again. Not sure what wrong with our strikers we won't score many goals if you miss from 2 yards out

Am I completely delusional for saying he played well?

He played well enough this game and for most of this season that he should be a starter in our next game. Kind of hard to justify freezing him out because he is leaving yet playing Lacazette who is leaving too.

Was our best player in preseason. Got injured at the wrong time, would have had a genuine claim to starting Match day 1 even had we had a fully fit squad.

No. He did play well but that miss was horrendous. We literally don't have a regular goal scorer or anyone you'd even hope would score.

Beggars can't be choosers now, ideally we sign a new top class striker in Jan. But until then we need to make do with the best player we can possibly play as our striker, and an increasingly strong case can be made that the striker is Nketiah.

Tbf to Eddie, he looked really good in pre-season. Shouldn’t be coming on as a substitute winger though over Auba or Pepe, that’s just ridiculous.

When was the last time the player playing striker actually scored? Can't remember the last time that happened.

Agree in theory but God help us if he's the best. I wouldn't bet on him scoring. Makes me miss Bendtner and Chamakh. :(

I think he has something about him, despite missing chances. Fans shouldn’t give him a hard time.

Also, missing chances is normal, under Wenger everybody missed chances, we would score 3/4 in a game but we should’ve scored 5/6.

Everything is just highlighted because we don’t create anything anymore.

That is just unreal! How the hell this is allowed to continue?
Until one the cringy guys start scoring because it's amazing to see the youngsters start add goals to thier game but we going nowhere if laca and auba do nothing that's why we already looking to refresh the attack

Not gonna lie, I gave up on him last season as it didn't seem to click for him.
Lad has been a different man since preseason, his game is much more refined now.
He may have missed a big chance against Everton but he created 3 other big chances for Ode(twice) and Auba who wasted them themselves.
Guy is ready to blow up, will be pissed if we lose him for free and be does that elsewhere.
Neither Auba or Laca have done enough to keep their spot in the team, give Eddie a go.
 

Arsenal Quotes

When we won the title on May 3-rd by beating Everton 4-0 as Tony Adams scored that iconic goal, we showed everyone and especially Manchester United that we could beat them. Thirteen days later, when we beat Newcastle 2-0 in the FA Cup final in the legendary Wembley Stadium, it was wonderful... I felt immensely proud for the team, for the club: this was the fantastic response I was able to give to those who had put their confidence in me, as well as those who had put me through all those difficult weeks when I first arrived.
