Wellington didn’t feature as Bolton Wanderers lost 2-1 to Cardiff City. 

Jon Toral missed out through injury as Birmingham City drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town. 

Ainsley Maitland-Niles wasn’t involved as Ipswich Town drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough. 

Mathieu Debuchy’s Bordeaux weren’t in action this weekend. 



  1. Sadly does not look like anyone on loan is the answer? Maybe Toral for Arteta?

    Surely Wellington Kamara Debuchy Maitland and Martinez must sold ?

    Zeelam maybe

    Apkom is 20 and miles away Hayden can’t get a game! Sorry to be negative but project youth looks a mess at the moment

    The hopes Crowley Beliek Jeff Wilcox Maylen anyone else

      1. Maitland-niles? I wouldn’t sell him just yet, but I would put his mum on a one way boat away from arsenal. She is going to destroy his career.

        As for Martinez, he will be 1 of 5 over age keepers on the books. We certainly can’t keep all 5 for next season, in fact I would say like this we really only need 2, as Huddart and Iliev could easily share 3rd keeper duties and u21s with keto for a season.

        Personally, I would keep ospina as cech’s deputy, sell szczesney and loan out martinez and macey for a season. This would maximise the space in the squad. Then I would release arteta, flamini and rosicky, whilst also selling Debuchy, and Sanogo. That would leave us with a 21 man squad and room for 4 new signings Cb, Dm, winger and CF.

    1. Yr crazy, maitland sold? U need to go watch how well he was doing for Ipswich at the start of the season. Maybe the next Ramsey.

  2. I have season ticket holders mates at Wolves who say he is poor and the fact he has hardly played means why keep him? As Atid says how many keepers do we need especially poor ones !

    Really worried the youth prospects look slim pickings but would love Jeorge to give an informed view of whom he thinks could be proper Wenger “super quality ”

    Jeff got the hype after the Emirates cup but has done little since?’

    Any left back pushing Gibbs

  3. Martinez has been MOTM on more than one occassion for Wolves, and only lost his place because of injury. Had a couple of errors, but he is only 23 and still very much learning.
    Remains to be seen if either Ospina and/or Szczesny decide to stay, and if they both go then I would rather Martinez as number 2 than have to waste our time trying to get a Shaaban/Poom/Viviano type to come as a very short term option.
    If Ospina/Szczesny stay then let Martinez have another loan to develop himself further. He is a far better keeper than Iliev or Macey will ever be.
    Unless we can attract a talented young keeper to come and play back up to Cech for a couple of seasons, not sure of the short term benefits of selling Martinez.
