Loan report- Aneke and Miquel left out again

Johan Djourou played the full 90 minutes and was booked as Hamburg drew 2-2 with Frankfurt in the Bundesliga, whilst, in the same division, Francis Coquelin was substituted at half-time during Freiburg’s 5-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund. The France U21 international had started on the left wing but failed to make an impact on proceedings.

Joel Campbell started and played the first 57 minutes on the right wing as Olympiacos beat Panionios 2-0.

Josh Vickers played the whole game but couldn’t keep a clean sheet as Canvey Island drew 2-2 with a St. Neots Town side containing Arsenal Academy graduate Rene Steer.

Chuks Aneke remained un-used throughout Crewe’s 3-0 loss to Gillingham, whilst Ignasi Miquel also didn’t make it off the bench as Leicester beat Barnsley.

Wellington is expected to be amongst the substitutes when Murcia face Numancia tonight.



  1. Can anyone explain why Gnabry and Olsson were left out of the initial tournament-CL-squad, but have now been registered as B-list-players? If they were eligible for B-list why not register them along with all the others?

    1. Not sure if the case is the same with Olsson but gnabry just became ellgible as he recently completed the required two years (at arsenal fc) to gain a place on the list.

  2. If Aneke and Miquel can’t get in the starting line ups for Crew and Leicster respectively, their not good enough for Arsenal. I personal think Campbell should be with Arsenal this season instead of Myachi.

  3. That is probably true about campbell – i watched him and he was good in the world cup qualifiers and for his club – But Ryo Myiachi is a real pacey and tricky player, if he keeps adding the plot overs to his game, more trickery and score those easy goals he should be good. I think he is a bit nerved and need the chance to settle and maybe even build a little bulk, but good player.

  4. Aneke is a great potential also – i remember seeing him shut down Manchester united’s nani coming on as substitute. Great.

      1. Do you remember Gibbs hardly playing during his loan spell at Norwich and do remember Stokes 14 goals on loan to Falkirk

      2. Thats an interesting point Sane, loan performances do not necessarily guarantee either an exit or a future at a club. Some players might get a lot of playing time on loan, for instance Emmanuel-Thomas, but for some reason the coaching staff don’t envisage a long term future for them at Arsenal. However, some players like Gibbs might get limited playing time but show enough to the coaching staff that they’ve learned enough to merit at least a chance in the first team. I think we get a little distracted by how many matches a player gets on loan w/o considering that a loan spell is more than just getting matches but also a chance to see how a young player handles himself professionally outside of the safe confines of Arsenal and London Colney.

      3. Yeah Sane…. but that was not as LB. He was playing LW or midfield and failed on loan. LB was only in 1 season at Arsenal and he took it at Arsenal.

        If Aneke can’t take a spot in midfield for a div 3 team then I see no future at all as he is not versatile enough either. Compare him to Olsson, Zelalem or even Jebb who seems to be doing good. Jebb can definitely leapfrog Zelalem if he keeps getting those long term injuries.

    1. That was Yennaris who came on as a sub in the league against Man U. Aneke did do well in a preseason game against City though, that’s where you’re confusing perhaps?
