Marquinhos: Off The Marq

I don’t agree. In Arteta’s system he wants his two wide men to isolate the full back and beat them. Zurich were so bad that he didn’t need to do that but against better opposition, Marquinhos needs to be braver imo.

I mean, sure. But this seems like pretty high standards for a teenager who just created two goals in his first ever professional game in Europe. The kid probably just wanted to keep it safe and not screw up in his first game by losing the ball in 1-on-1s.

Excellent debut. He didn’t really seem to put a foot wrong, and I love seeing him emotional about his first goal. I’m not sure why a few people were slagging him off for it in the match thread. He’s a teenager scoring in a European competition. I hope he gets plenty more chances to let the emotions run high.

A great debut with the first team and what better way than to score and provide a perfect assist.

Let's not raise major expectations on the kid just yet. The Zurich LB Aliti is downright average and I posted before the game that we should attack his area because he really, really is downright average :lol:

When Marquinhos meets better competition in PL or next EL & Cup games, that's when we can see his more meaningful performances.

good debut. don't know how he will perform in the league, but we now know that he is worth starting at the EL group stage level making it easier to rotate in that position for at least the rest of the year.

Looks a powerful player with a deadly left peg. Goal and assist on his full debut in Europe, can’t complain at all. We need him due to our light wide options. Good to see he’s capable.

Xhaka was the first to predict that Marquinhos wasn’t going on loan like many assumed, and that he was ready to play a part with the first team. Xhaka knows best.

Seriously though, in the games I’ve seen (couple of u21 games and highlights of yesterday) he doesn’t run or dribble at players. It may be that he’s too nervous and just wants to do the basics but he’ll have to do more than cut in and cross like a favela Townsend if he’s to make it here.
 

Arsenal Quotes

Everybody knows how much I love Arsenal - I became a fan. And to be out here [in front of the Emirates as a statue] celebrating a goal against Sp*rs, there's not much else to say after that. Like I've said before: Once a Gooner, always a Gooner.
