    Still the advanced talks with Alexis and Saliba shows where are we heading i'm ok to go Dortmund route in short period even tho it will lead us to lose some of their youngsters if they highly preform.

    This is music to my ears.

    The type of strategy we have needed for the last couple of years. I believe the development of a number of players were disrupted due to the increasing focus (understandably) on results and relying on experience, a factor I still believe to be relatively overrated in truth. That there's now a transitional policy in place to bring some of these underrated and excellent talents forward into the first team is exactly what we need going into the future. It won't just benefit the likes of those close to first team contention (Nelson, ESR, Willock, Nketiah, Saka, Amaechi) but it will be invaluable for the ones coming up behind them from the U18 PL South-winning team (likes of Greenwood, Coyle, Smith, McGuinness, Balogun, Azeez, Musah) and the successful U16s too (Musah, Patino etc). This will also be a good opportunity for Ljungberg to single out unheralded performers like Danny Ballard, who's been impressive for the U23s. The increasing focus on their development into first team players will also enable us to sell some of them for good value if we have a surplus, as they will have had opportunities to prove themselves to be worthwhile assets - whether at the club or to sell.

    Ljungberg's work with the U23s, as said on the previous page, has been impressive and I'm happy with the way they have restructured things. It perhaps gives Bould more purpose too, given his role in our previous generation of talents who could have achieved way more than they did. Ben Knapper will also be of increasing importance as we will need to make sure our loans are smart and beneficial to all parties.

    Freddie is going to look so sharp in a suit standing on the touchline at the Emirates when he replaces Emery as manager in November.

    I wanted the iPad merchant last summer but I like the sound of #Freddie2020. I'm all in.

    I'm hoping we go to a model where we have say 13-14 first team quality players and back ups who are extremely talented youth products who are ready to step up to have limited exposure to first team footy.

    We need to GTFA from the likes of El Neny, Lichsteiner etc...i.e. the journeymen who take up squad places and high wages (relative to output / potential).

    iPad merchant and the Calvin Klein model as his assistant sounds better imo.

    That's the dream. A good, solid first team core with young, hungry back-ups looking to make a name for themselves.

    The 07-08 team is the perfect template. Would love Lauren to come in as Freddie's assistant. That goal at the Bridge!!!

    his English is much better than Emery's, and that will probably help

    how did Freddie get on with Pires?

    Great news, I think Freddie has a great managerial future. Not sure why Bould has gone the other way though, I’m not a fan.

    So is that a lateral move or a demotion for Bouldy?
    Anyway delighted about this move. Might just get me interested in the new season if we can the likes of Nelson, ESR, Nketiah and Saka on a regular basis.

    Wasn't Bouldy promoted after doing really well with the U18s?

    That's why I'm not sure how big an impact Freddie will have. He'll probably have limited influence until he replaces Emery in winter.

    Bould was promoted under Wenger. This is different
