That is very solid performance from Jeff. Already better than the fraud Pogba.
Watching Akpom against belgian champions Anderlecht. Scored a nice goal with a very good shot, he also missed a penalty though
Go on Chuba!
Nice goal Chuba!
Took it early.
He missed a penalty as well.
Both Sheaf and Bielik are yet to play for Stevnage and Walsall. Injured?
Yes, in Sheaf's case but I don't know about Bielik.
Really hope this loan will turn out to be a success, seems like a mature guy and still only 20. His future looks like it should be in midfield, lots to like about his game so I'm still hopeful about him.
Martinez has only played 3 games for Getafe.
He is 25 now as well.
Personally think its time to move him on
Matt Macey also renewed his contract recently, so I don't think he is going anywhere
Jeff vs Lille OSC
Ben Sheaf vs Notts County
Looks like good performances from both, hopefully they’ll start some games soon. Jeff just looks so much better than Iwobi and the composure sheaf has on the ball is ridiculous, do wish he went to a championship/league 1 club though.
Ben is 20 years old and doesn’t have any first team experience of note. Is it because Wenger does not rate him? Not played for England at under 20 either.
They've been slow to loan him out, plus he used to be a midfielder (he in fact played there for Stevenage in that very match) which is a very crowded position. Even AMN looks to struggle to get serious and genuine time there. Joe Willock seems to have emerged as the midfield heir apparent ahead of all the other potential hopefuls.
Sheaf is, honestly, criminally underrated by many as an overall talent. He is originally from West Ham's academy and joined just before he was 16. There are other more heralded talents but he could easily have a future in the game because of how solid he is as a technician and an athlete.
Starting for them tonight. Not sure if their nr 1 is inured or dropped. Shame he hasn't gotten more games. Always liked Martinez, and 25 is not a lot for a GK.
For a third choice keeper who has ambitions to be, he is getting on a bit though
At 25 he should have played more games by now certainly. Think he only has around 25 senior games in total. Always liked him, good size, calm and ha an aura about him.
They should try him in defensive mid then, we seem to be lacking in that position. One other thing, our academy does not seem to produce the tenacious players at all. That’s the reason why Le Coq was a breadth of fresh air. Anyone in that mold?
He would probably be a better candidate for a DM role than most other midfielders in the U23s, including AMN. He is actually a competent defender and has played CB solidly for well over a season. Actually seems like he enjoys defending too . That he can pass the ball very well and is cool under pressure bodes well for him. I'm unsure about his future at the club but he has a chance.
Martinez about to finish the season strong????
