    TH14 is working with the U18's this year......getting his coaching in. Glad to see him around the club & helping out.

    The U21's play Derby this afternoon 6:55pm UK time but yet again NO coverage.

    You can follow updates @arsenal on twitter.....sheesh.:mad:

    Pleguzuelo had a blinder for the U21´s in their 3-2 win against Derby yesterday

    Who's that guy training with the first team?

    Got my answer from google, Ismael Bennacer, interesting that he's already training with the first team.

    The elite youngsters regularly get to train with the first team. I wouldn't see anything out of the ordinary in it.

    Sure. But he's 17 and just arrived, that's why it's a bit surprising.

    He hasn't had FIFA clearance yet (same with Malen), so yet to feature for the U21s, but will be interesting to see him play when it's sorted.

    Thanks, now I get why he didn't feature on our website.
    He's a sub tonight, hopefully he'll get some minutes.

    The U21's trashed West Ham 5-0.

    Something the senior team should've done aswell.

    This Mavididi lad seems to be very prolific. Can't say i've watched him much though. Maybe we'll see him in the Carling Cup?

    Anyway good to see our U21 team back on track after a pretty poor season last year.

    Zelalem on comparisons to Pirlo: "I still have a long way to go...[but] I definitely think I will reach that level."

    Legend. Great confidence. Let's hope he makes it. If he could bulk up, he could be our long term answer to the DLP position.

    Good player, Mavididi. Slight difference to Akpom in that he's more a hold-up man than a dribbler, but he's still fairly quick and is very good in the air.

    He's looking a lot stronger lately, so not too worried about that. I just want to see if he's supplemented his tactical awareness with some good defensive positioning. If he does that, he could be a shoe-in for that position at some point. What's impressing me is that he's beginning to actually control matches from deep.

    Seems since we couldn't buy a forward we are determined to make our own with the acquisitions of Donyell malen, Yassin Fortune, Vlad Dragomir and
    Martin Graiciar Atleast one of them should be able to develope into a top forward......

    How far do those who've watched them think Yassin Fortune and Jeff Reine-Adelaide are from first team cameos?

    If we get easy team in FA Cup next year, at home, and with injuries. I can see one of them on the bench for that game.

    Jeff has made the CL squad so we might see him against Olympiakos.

    If Maitland-Niles keeps going like that there will be a lot of talk about him next summer, and his mother.
