Well, a lot has been said recently about our fantastic youth academy and the fact that the majority of it is actually young English talent with huge potential. The likes of Murphy, Lansbury, Randall and Gibbs have all been touted as future superstars, but what if they don’t live up to the hype. Take Theo Walcott for example, at the moment he is all pace and nothing else but although there is still a decent chance of him making it at Arsenal, he will never be as good as we’d all have hoped. There have even been rumours that he will join West Ham on loan this month. I think that would be a good move for him as he needs to beef up and playing at Upton Park would definitely improve the physical side of his game. Hopefully, the pressure won’t get to the rest of our youngsters because I would hate to see the same thing happen to them.
The Reserves take on Birmingham away on Monday. It’s live on Arsenal TV and remember to keep checking the site for the best coverage of the match, including an in-depth preview and match report.
