Has Miyaichi run out of time at Arsenal?

Will Miyaichi figure next season? by AH

Ryo Miyaichi was a player that I think gave every Arsenal fan a tad of excitement. Maybe not the most skilful or amazing player that would change a game in an instant but his raw speed just gave us the feeling that something amazing could happen at any moment, much like the feel you got when you first saw Theo Walcott play for Arsenal, or Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, even Serge Gnabry. All excellent talents and young stars for the future (well apart from Walcott).

Last Chance Saloon for Afobe at Arsenal

Will Afobe make it at Arsenal? by AH

Benik Afobe. A player which both Arsenal fans and manager Arsene Wenger once had very high hopes for, but now he seems to be nothing more than the other Arsenal youth players that struggle. His continuous loan deals and struggles with fitness look set to make him the next in line for the failed youth players, which is now rising to an extraordinary amount.

Arsenal could soon have 2 Japanese players

It is fair to say that the Japanese international Ryo Miyaichi has not had the best of times since joining Arsenal at the start of 2011. Over two years later, the winger has made just two appearances for the Gunners and they were in the league cup. He has been out on loan for most of that time, though, and has impressed his bosses at Feyenoord, Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic, where his latest spell was ravaged by injury.

Is Arsenal’s Miyaichi being wasted at Wigan?

What has happened to Ryo Miyaichi? by AH

Miyaichi was promised to be something special by Wenger when we signed him to professional terms back in January 2011. Wenger said; “We’re delighted that Ryo Miyaichi has joined us. He trialled with us in the summer and has raw ability which has attracted many clubs around the world.” Two years on and he still is known as a prodigy.
Now, admittedly the 20 year old has spent his time out on loan for the majority of the time he has been with the club. When he signed, Ryo went straight on loan to Dutch club Feyenoord, where he impressed in all the games he played in his time at the club. At the end of the 2010-2011 season he had made 12 appearances in the Dutch league and scoring 3 goals and gaining numerous assists, which is an impressive tally for a player who was playing for his Japanese High school team just 6 months previous.

Loan Watch – Benik Afobe at Bolton by AM

Benik Afobe, who was loaned out to Bolton at the start of this month, has said that Jack Wilshere and Ryo Miyaichi’s experience at Bolton helped him make his decision to switch with ease. In an interview Afobe said –

“I spoke to both Jack Wilshere and Ryo Miyaichi before I joined Bolton and they both told me how good a club it was and that the fans are great, so it made the decision very easy for me,” the 19-year-old told Sky Sports.

Wigan Set To Sign Arsenal Winger by AH

Wigan Athletic have reportedly made a bid for Arsenal’s Ryo Miyaichi on a season long loan deal. The move for the Japanese winger was confirmed by Wigan’s goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi on the social networking site Twitter.

The translated text from Al Habsi’s Twitter page said;

“I am happy that our team, Wigan, has acquired Japanese Arsenal player Ryo on loan for a season who was also loaned out to Bolton. It’ll be nice to have a fellow Asian with me in the team”

Benik Afobe loan deal can benefit Bolton AND Arsenal

Arsenal’s Afobe on loan to Bolton! by KJ

Arsenal have announced that Benik Afobe will go on loan to Bolton for coming season. Bolton unfortunately were relegated to the Championship but are hopeful on returning to their rightful place in the Premier League.

I like Bolton. They’re an honest club with a quality manager. They’re very different from Arsenal in the sense that they’re more physical and depend more on long balls but this is certainly a positive for Arsenal players that are loaned there as they get to learn the physical side of the game. It greatly benefited Wilshere and Miyaichi would’ve learnt a lot with Coyle.

Should Arsenal send Ryo Miyaichi on loan?

According to some Sources, Premier League clubs are lining up loan bids for Arsenal player Ryo Miyaichi. The teenager has been tipped by many to take a squad place next season for Arsenal as he continues to impress whenever he plays.

In January, Miyaichi joined Bolton on loan and it’s fair to say that he impressed in almost all of the games he played in. He looked like he may just have saved the team from dropping down the table, just like Daniel Sturridge had done last year and Jack Wilshere had done two years ago.

Ryodinho will be great for Arsenal next season

Ryo Myaichi Update: by SV

Arsenal’s tricky Japanese winger Ryo Myaichi, is currently on loan at Bolton for the remainder of the season. The loan, before it even began, was likely to be a positive move as Bolton has a track record of schooling young players on the rigours of the League. Bolton’s largest success, from our point of view, was obviously Jack Wilshere. Jack spent half a season at the club and, in my opinion; we must give Bolton credit for a large part of the gritty streak which has made Jack so useful to us. Similarly with Ryo, I hope that his game will take on another, more physical, dimension.

Owen Coyle – Miyaichi is fantastic and will have a big impact

The Bolton manager Owen Coyle did a great job with Jack Wilshere when he spent six months on loan the season before last, and if anything he is even more excited about this seasons Arsenal loanee Ryo Miyaichi.

The skinny Japanese winger won Bolton’s Player-of-the-Month trophy after just three games, and Coyle thinks that Miyaichi will be a great help as the Trotters fight against relegation, despite looking too fragile to compete in the Premier League.

Coyle said: “He’s not the stature for a sleeves-up battle to stay up, but he does have an effect.

Owen Coyle excited about Arsenal’s ‘baby’ Miyaichi

The Bolton manager Owen Coyle revealed today that he was tracking the young Japanese star Ryo Miyaichi even last season when the Arsenal loanee was getting his first taste of senior football at Feyenoord last season, and immediately knew that he was a star of the future.

He has been proved right after Miyaichi’s impressive debut was then capped off by the 18 year-old’s brilliant goal for Bolton in the FA Cup win against Millwall on Saturday.

“His second-half performance against Wigan last week was terrific, and from that moment there was no doubt he was going to start against Millwall.

Miyaichi thanks Henry for his goal, but says Arsenal atmosphere is ‘incredibly tense’

The young Japanese star Ryo Miyaichi is enjoying his loan period at Bolton, and after being denied a goal on his 45 minute debut last week, the Arsenal loanee promised that he would score in the next game he played.

The 18 year-old kept his promise with a brilliant individual effort for Bolton early on in Saturday’s win over Millwall in the FA Cup. “The ball came to me at the perfect time,” Miyaichi said. “I had space in front of me and my first touch let me move inside.
