Shivering Right Now
I don’t reallly consider any CB’s unless they’re obviously top talents. Monlouis and Awe have been rated highly for a couple of years, regularly in the England set up etc but it’s just such a hard position to judge.I agree. I also think the defenders like Monlouis and Awe have a shot. They certainly have enough raw talent, especially Monlouis even though he still makes some dumb mistakes. After that it will be the next group of players like Duberry, Nwaneri and Skelly to see what they bring to the table.
The way Arteta manages young players - basically copying how Pep manages them, means you have to be a special talent to get that push. Patino is that level and he’ll be the one they’ll have in mind as the 6/7th midfielder next season I think.
Agree about the younger lads you mentioned, just about keeping them at the club really.
