    Just wondering if this site has replaced the Arsenal Reserves & Youth Blog site that appears to have been removed ?

    Either way, top site, keep up the good work !

    Regards

    No that site was run by someone else and this is completely different. Thanks for the support.

      Is there a similar site for the Premier League Academy as a whole? Jeorge, you are doing a wonderful job, congratulations.

      Hi Geogre
      Watched Canvey v Met police yesterday as no prem games .
      Vickers done couple good saves and distribution was top draw deserved the win and earned his clean sheet as Canvey climb the table to 10 th last 3 games. 3 wins
      Our young lads out on loan is good for their development as Cickers as already played 26 games with Canvey

    Not too sure it was a good idea to set up this website, I think there is a possibility that these “children” may get a bit above their station and believe they are superstars before they have established themselves even at reserve level.
    From another angle, I use Jack Wilshere as an example…too much attention will only add needless pressure to young heads. Also what do Arsenal’s Academy make of the website?
    Any thoughts?

    I realise that a lot of these players are unlikely to make it at Arsenal. Only Justin Hoyte has done it in the last few years. The purpose of this website is to tell people about the future players, although i’m sure they realise that they are probably not going to make it here,they may go on to make it elsewhere. I realised that people wanted to know about these players and that they would be interested in finding out more about them

    We will find out in 3 to 4 years!
    I am not questioning your motives but I am not convinced the website will do no harm.

    i’m not saying these players will be superstars, i’m merely saying how good they are now and whether they have a good chance of making the first team. A website can’t exactly destroy a players career.

    Hello, what a wonderful site this is, I truely admire your work. I was wondering where could I watch Arsenal Reserve matches? I know the new Arsenal TV of Setanta Sports features all games of the Arsenal Reserves, but, unfortunaly its not available to my country. Is there anyother way to watch the Arsenal Reserves? Torrents maybe? If so please post a link to the website.
    Thanks alot for you fantastic work

    In response to Steve’s concerns… I agree with his point but I believe the website has much value, if done correctly. I came upon the site on a random google search so its my first taste, but as an avid fan I like knowing about the youth/reserve players, if just merely to satisfy my curiosity at a minimum. I guess where, I’m going is that the blog hasn’t a huge audience. We aren’t going to see the views expressed on this site as headlines on the Daily Mirror tomorrow. So whilst I am all for keeping the “children” well within their “station” ie, keeping them firmly grounded with nothing on their minds but their football and their familly, a belive it could prove an excellent medium to educate fans about the prospects such that when those players do get their big break, the fans are behind those players, and they have a few things to shout in encouragement on their debut…. for instance in a dead rubber against sunderland on the last day of the season…this way the players feel part of the club and the fan base and may feel more committed to trying to make it at arsenal football club

    Hello, mate.
    Have been reading your blog/articles/whatever for quite a while now.
    Just wondering if there’s any chance you can do a bit of a link switch?
    That would be amazing.

    All the best,

    Jeorge – keep up the good work. i completely disagree with Steve – no offense Steve. It seems obvious to me that Arsene believes that the development of young players as being one of the key cornerstones for the clubs long term success. He wants to attract the best young talent from around the world. Part of this has led to him giving public exposure to young players at the club through the first team via the Carling cup and pre-season friendlies. Young players like Ramsey and Walcott before him chose to join us because we have shown that our youth players can get a chance if they earn it. Where does your website come into this? Well, I feel that if our young players are getting wide public exposure it can only add to the perception that Arsenal is a top destination for young talented players and the best place for a talented young player to develop their potential.

    I also disagree with Steve. There’s always pros and cons to everything. While I can see the point of wanting to get the boys feet firmly on the ground, which I believe they are doing that, it will also be a good incentive to them to know that they get recognition.

    Look on the bright side. It should also serve as a motivation to young people out there that at Arsenal, they have a chance to make it. Especially English lad. I’m sick to listen to all thise critic saying Arsen’s is anti English talent. That’s load of crap!.

    Not all will go into the team but hey.. Wouldn’t that experience and exposure rubbing shoulders with the best do you any harm? I don’t think so.

    One of the reasons I have been an Arsenal fan since 1972 is that it is to me THE complete club. Not just the first team, which is excellent, but the Reserves, Youths,Academy and Ladies as well. Until I came across your blog however, news and information about these lesser known aspects of the club was very limited. So thanks for filling the gap.

    Now where can i find more about Arsenal Ladies??

    I have only recently come across this site. It is OUTSTANDING!
    Of course, only one in a hundred of the boys will be a Theo Walcott, let alone a Thierry Henry, but if these young players can, in thirty years time, point out the comments on here, to show their grandkids just how good they were, job well done , Jeorge.

    I feel that young players need public exposure as a stimulus to do even better. Football fans can also make judgements on who they see as future stars, playing the managers/scout`s game. I even think there are many fans who would rather watch the Premier Academy League to the Premier League which is not really pure football any more. It is easier for us all to associate ourselves with grass roots football as it`s also within out capability.

    I recently started my own sports blog, however it only focusses on the younger generation. My first interview was with a Arsenal U21 player. It would be great if you could check it out and leave some feedback http://sportsyoungtalent.wordpress.com/
