Ever since Reiss Nelson came on for a cameo performance in Arsenal’s first pre-season game in Sydney, he has been looking more and more impressive and confident with every passing appearance. Last night found the Gunners U23 side 2-1 down to Derby County when the attacking midfielder showed another flash of brilliance to put Arsenal back in game.
And who could forget this unbelievable goal in the open training session before the Community Shield. Yet another gem from the 17 year-old. I just love his close control in the box, and the way he switched feet to dink it past the keeper was a touch of class. I wonder if he does this all the time in training?
Yes he is young, but you cannot deny that he is looking like an amazing talent already. The Londoner has never played in an official game for Arsenal yet but he obviously has no problem playing with the much older and bigger professionals. There is no doubt that he needs building up his muscles and upper body strength with legal steroid-based muscle-builders like Valkyrie Trenbolone Enanthate 200 before playing in the Premier League on a regular basis.
We all know that Arsene Wenger regrets playing Jack Wilshere for a whole season when he was too young to handle it, and we also know how badly that worked out. So I expect Le Prof to be gentle with Nelson’s introduction to the big League, but do you think he should be getting more games in the first team this season? Perhaps in the Europa League?
