It's good that Cirjin is training with the 1st team as we don't have enough of his type in our first team squad.
Balogun in almost everything attacking for ushttps://player.arsenal.com/video/u-23s-leicester-city-h-highlights-0
With the wackness that is our recent first team form, this was a nice watch. Some good football, particularly involving the full-backs.
Yeah Balogun's better, that much has been quite obvious for a while but I think it wasn't quite as cut and dry until this year when he began to display a level of all-round play that Eddie simply cannot reach. I think Eddie is capable of much more than we're seeing, but he still hasn't got the kind of composure needed to show it and he won't get that many chances at Arsenal to show it.Balogun in almost everything attacking for us
I'm a big Eddie fan but looks like Balogun is definitely better. Please don't **** this up Arsenal.
He's a first year scholar. Very powerful and comfortable on the ball, gets up and down the flank well. Had a few matches for the U23s after some injuries led to a premature call up and he's delivered extremely well in those matches. He's looking to be the best of the academy in that position, with strong competition from Daniel Oyegoke aswell. We're really well stocked for RBs.@MutableEarth Who dis? Information looks promising.
"Brooke Norton-Cuffy has signed his first professional contract.
The 17-year-old right back has enjoyed an incredible 2020/21 season so far, making his debut for our under-18s back in October, before making his under-23s debut at just 16 years of age against Liverpool.
Brooke is a powerful and technical right back and has won four of his five Premier League 2 outings to date.
We congratulate Brooke on his first professional contract and look forward to supporting him with his continued development."

In more current news, the U23s are playing right now vs Brighton (before you all ask, no there isn't a stream - it's Arsenal lol) and we're already 2-0 up after 20 mins.
Miguel Azeez and Flo Balogun are the scorers - two players who it could be argued are very close to playing top flight football (in Balogun's case, he's been ready for a minute!). Feel a degree of sympathy for the Balogun situation given that he's so far beyond this level but has too many bodies in front of him, some of whom have a level of promise themselves.
FT 5-0 Bolagun got his hattrick right at thr end of game. 5 wins from 5 from Steve bould U23. I read Moller had 3 assists 1 goal too seem he settled quick at our youth teams
