Nicely balanced player and good decision making. Seemingly knows when to release the ball. It takes a lot of confidence to use your weaker foot in decisive moments and pull off that level of quality.
Aside from his natural talent, decision making looks really good for his age too.
'Arsenal's Next Breakthrough Talent?'
Disrespectful thread title IMO. It needs to be changed. My suggestion would be 'Arsenals First Ballon d'Or Winner?' Henry was robbed
Then again that may be putting a bit too much pressure on his mighty shoulders, so perhaps just 'Arsenals Greatest of All Time?'
Absolutely loved this from him today. His composure was fantastic.
Dare I say who needs Sanchez when we have Nelson?
Where was Alexis at 17?
Think he knows he's good enough . Wenger will want him through the middle ultimately I feel . Too good to be a plain winger . Think more impressive is his defensive work no fear getting stuck in .
You thinking number 10? He's got ridiculously fast feet so it's not a bad shout.
Can't wait until he turns 18 so I can start saving pictures of him in my CPU.
Yeah I think so or there an thereabouts . Superquick feet but his passing and timing is pretty good as well .
Just send AMN back to the U23 and promote this guy.
I think so , best pre season performance from any kid I have ever seen for Arsenal .
Surprised they were so quick to to find my Portuguese piece on him.
Our EL sojourn has come at the perfect time for him. Expect to see a lot of him in the initial stages of the tournament. Or even in the later stages, for that matter. There's no team in the EL that worries me.
He plays there for the U23s usually, some of his best games have been playing there. He's not an obvious creator but he has clever passes in his locker and knows how to make the right patterns with his teammates.
I know what you're getting at Celestis but I feel the importance of having elite wingers with 1-on-1 destruction capabilities should not be underestimated.
We have especially lacked that at Arsenal and I was always envious of Man U when they had Giggs. I don't think any other winger in England came close for about 15 years. A big reason component of Fergie's success was he always had exceptional wide players.
It's those tight games that get congested through the centre where we will really feel the benefit of Nelson if he fulfils anything like the potential he is showing right now.
I agree on his defensive work. I especially like the way he knows how to use his body effectively to shield the ball and is tactically aware.
