    And Afobe makes it 2-0, rather predictably from an Aneke through-ball.

    Chuks and Benik are our next in line as the biggest potential to break our first team in the future after wilshere, wouldn't you agree MD?

    Chuks specifically almost seems like a guarantee he has it all, size, skill, technique, speed, power, vision, first touch, shot with both feet, and a good finisher. Seems like he has a set position too, he'll probably be a back up to Diaby/Ramsey in a couple years.

    Yeah Chuks is really set for big things, he look pretty nailed on. Like you said, has everything and good size. Not as dead sure about Afobe, only because anything can happen, but he'll certainly get his shot at 1st team.

    I like Aneke, but with players like him you never really know whether half of their success at youth level is down to him having such a big physical advantage over others. Given how much more he has to his game than size though he's certainly promising.

    Afobe is a bit different as he is actually quite limited technically compared to many at Arsenal. But he is so good instinctively at both finishing and off the ball movement I'd love to see him succeed. Not a Wenger-type striker though.

    Wellington, Barazite and Hoyte on. Randall, Murphy and Miquel off.

    Gazidis, Pat Rice, Wenger, JET and Wilshere all at Boreham Wood tonight.

    Yeah i know what your saying about Chuks, but now he is a reserve player he gets a chance to prove that isnt the case. I dont think he is the type that dominated buy size though, he has alot.

    Really wish i could be watching Wellington right now :(

    All step overs and tricks apparently, crowd loving him. Just had a great effort saved by keeper, then another effort just wide after beating a few defenders.

    Gavin Hoyte just hit the crossbar.

    I do wish Gavin Hoyte would hurry up and go away, everytime i hear his name i envisage his brother.

    Brilliant cheers. Think I'll just go to the Rovers game, Sunday at 3pm is alot handier than going all the way to Tallaght on a Thursday night.

    Nice to hear that Wilshere and Jet were at the game.

    No problem qs.

    Arsenal 3-0 up now, own goal from Evina's cross.

    Edit: And that's full time.

    That japanese guy sounds intresting. A direct pacy and skillfull winger. Exactly what I want on our wings. Of course he's not the finished article yet, but it seems like he impressed today.

    That Japanese guy is a real surprise for me. None of the blogs mentioned him before the start of the game. Will ATVO show the highlights of this game later? Would love to watch Wellington in action. Some of the senior reserve players are probably off if they don't impress soon.

    Perhaps we can get the arse to play that whenever he's on the ball.

    Look very good, that japanese. A dribbler it seems

    Meanwhile, we offered trials to 2 Singaporeans footballers...

    A couple of offers accepted for Jay Simpson then, hope he goes on to have a decent career wherever he chooses to go.

    Great attitude towards playing football that far more young players should have.

    £1.2m isnt exactly a bad amount for a player never going to make it with us either, plus the inevitable 20% sell on clause.
