What the future holds for Arsenal by briantole
I have noticed that Arsenal no longer have the young talented squad we used to have for the long term basis, most of them decided to jump ship and others weren’t able to make it due to too many injury troubles. But something is beginning to make me feel worried. I look at the Everton, Tottenham and Liverpool squads and look at the young talent they have that are so good. I look at the likes of Kane, Barkley, Stones, Dier, Alli, Coutinho and Can and the likes. I begin to say to myself ‘wow what a talent these clubs have’. To top that, these aren’t like the injury prone snakes we used to have. They are more durable and much more competitive.
As for us we have Bellerin and Le Coq who are our youngest promising players. So there will come a time when our first teamers will need to be replaced by younger ones. Man City have already begun the process by the purchases of de Bruyne and Sterling. We also need to be doing likewise and I hope Wenger doesn’t leave us in the state that Ferguson left Manchester United.
Amongst all the young talent that we have it seems that it is just Chambers and Bellerin who are first team members who are injury free and only Bellerin is reliable. On a positive note is that over reliance on these youngsters by these rival teams might just be asking too much from them, and become problematic like the cases we had in the past.
But the worst part might be that they may begin a revolution on these clubs. Their growth may be so rapid that by the time they are at the peak of their powers they have become world beaters. Just look at the likes of Ronaldo, Sergio, Ramos, Iniesta, Messi etc. They may also turn out that way.
I think we should add more young players to our current bunch as Wilshere and the Ox have become so annoying.
If the likes of Bielik, Bennacer, Akpom, Niles-Maitland and Crowley make it, then fine. If there is need to purchase, then we should add the likes of Isco, Sergi, Samper, Stones, Grimaldo, Lukaku and others to act as security for our old outgoing players, or we may find ourselves dropping behind our rivals in the future…
