Why under 21 league title could be huge for Arsenal

The Arsenal senior squad may have blown the Premier League title this season, but there is still a league title that could be coming to the club this year and if it does it could have big ramifications in the future for the Gunners. Last night the Arsenal under 21 side pulled off a fantastic result which puts us withing touching distance of winning it.

It was an away game against table topping Derby County and after Ben Sheaf was sent off in the first half for a second yellow and Stephy Mavididi saw his opening goal cancelled out, the young Gunners were really up against it so to hold on was good but to come up with a winner through Kaylen Hinds was fantastic.

Derby would have sealed thew title with a win but Arsenal are now just two oints behind them and we have two games left to play while they have none. So one more win against either Swansea City on Thursday or West Brom on Monday will see us calim the title and win promotion to the top division.

Let´s be honest here Gooners, Arsenal should already be in the top flight of the under 21s but to get there could really help us in the future. The academy players will be playing against better opposition and that should help them to improve as well as making the transition to the senior side easier.

Plus we need all the title winning experience we can get if the Gunners are to ever regain that coveted EPL trophy. So Come On You Young Gunners!


    1. what for the bundesliga player of the year
      he destroyed that league last year.

      i know i gush over him- but the premier league do not realise what they have in de bruyne yet.
      they will

      1. Wenger tomorrow:

        “I almost signed De Bruyne. I bid £19.99 but Wolfsburg refused.”

  1. well done man city.
    they now dine amongst the elite

    fantastic result
    bloody sagna and clichy must be laughing

    1. winning mentality will win us the league in the future. Look at how well Liverpool have become by being a dominant side in the U21’s. Winning the league every year since 1989/90, and Champions League twice per year!!!

    1. @AOT
      They tried, but were just not good enough. MC defended their sacks off, without Kompany or Toure and came out on top.

  2. Zlatan looks just like Olivier. He can’t dribble, zero effin pace and can’t pass worth a dayum…Dude was invisible. Yet some peeps here still want this busted flush…Would go for Cavani and Rabiot instead. They were fightin till the end.

    1. Cavani is rapidly ageing and regressing. Rabiot on the other hand looks like a decent player.

      I have doubts about City though. Surely one of Bayern, Real, Barca/Athletico will drop them next round.

      1. @J McLovin
        But dude still has some fight left in him. Zlatan looked like he could care less either way. Rabiot looks like a fighter also. No special skill set to mention though.

    2. disagree completely.
      mangala and otamendi had very good games.
      pellegrinis tactics were spot on

      if 41 goals in this season makes him a busted flush then arsenals entire forward line is essentially a the contents of my uncle ray rays septic tank

      1. @muffdiver
        Dudes leading the line in the top team of a 1 team league. Olivier even excelled in Ligue 1, remember…

        1. ah yes montpelier how can i forget
          his goal count was half that tho
          but you make a valid point

          does that mean theo walcott would score 30+ goals in ligue 1?

          1. @muffdiver
            PSG are on 83 pts. Their closest rivals Lyon, are on 55pts. Says it all…

            1. Barcelona and the other two are the same way in Spain. Zlatan would have easily gotten twenty plus pl goals in this Arsenal side, he is much better than any of Arsenals centre forwards. He has one bad game against a resilient unit in the latter stages and people are writing him off? I think he’s proved his quality by now, sure he destroyed Chelsea numerous times.

    3. Do not bring Zlatan here. I would forgive Van Perse for all his sins and have him as our 18yard box man if we cant get anythng to writing home about this summer! Wenger makes me feel sad about everything called soccer…

  3. Just take a look at the big difference De Bruyne has brought to man city…just one player is making the difference for them ..who knows where we would be today if we made at least a signing of even just a single WC player.. so now aren’t we back to square one? fight to keep top 4 now…Wenger needs to leave, i’ve supported him through thick and thing but this club Arsenal FC is made up of us all not made up of Wenger..and we need to start fighting for ourselves not for Wenger anymore

    1. I agree. It seems like propaganda from Wenger filters through to the fans and makes them believe that we are better than we are. Would say that is equally true for a lot of our team. Especially those on very large pay packets and who offer very little return.

  4. i really studied tonights game an you know what was missing from psg’s line up….

    thats right….


    (shouts out to the previous post)

  5. I’d still take Zlatan if I was a coach. Then again I would have bought/made an offer for Dybala the little wizard.

    Still, we have Danny & Theo. Who needs anything more?

    1. bit harsh on danny to pair him up with theo walnut

      he does bring alot to the game…
      an he looks like wilfred zaha

      1. Call me picky, but I like my forwards to be able to score more than a few goals a season.

        Danny is a trier and seems to have added to his game since injury but he ain’t getting into my all time eleven as a forward or winger.

        1. I will support Welbz while he wears the Arsenal badge, he has potential and if he can click infront of goal then we could end up with a great CF…

          How-ever I have been trying to highlight how the board bought Welbeck and that meant we had ‘3 international CF’ and as they are internationals they ‘must’ be world class…

          I will support Welbz but deep down I do feel he cost us a decent CF, the board wouldn’t spend more on yet another CF so soon after getting Welbeck.

          I’m sick of Gazidis missing out on players because we didn’t offer enough or because he thought he could be clever and it ends up backfiring.
          I dream of the days when Dein was at Arsenal, talking with Wenger and using his vast knowledge and contacts to make things happen, a shareholder who was working for the club.

    1. What do we expect when Theo is too shy to shoot enough to make a difference, Giroud moaning at others to get the ball back for him to fluff a shot, Ramsey leaving the def work to the defenders, Ox happy being a fringe player and never stepped up, Welbeck becoming Welbroke…

      I will not cry if any of them are sold.
      It would be wonderful if they all could perform at their best consistently, I will support them in hope that they do while they play for us but I will not be ignorant of their faults.

  6. Being a die hard Arsenal fan, that also make me a huge fan of the English Premier League clubs above any other League in the World. And I am equally a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo since his hey days at Man Utd.

    I am so happy for Man City success tonight over PSG. In fact, I want them to all the way and win the Ucl. They are the only English Premier League club left in the competition to fly the banner of the Barclays Premier League. Therefore, I’ll support them to the end. I also want Atletico de Madrid to oust Barcelona from the competition tomorrow because of the arrogance of Barcelona FC. But I want Bayern Munich to go through. I like Bayern Munich because of the past exploits of Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Muller for Bayern. And of recent, the exploits of Arjen Iron Robben for the club.

  7. City played with a high line defence, which rendered Zlatan completely ineffective. He could as well have stayed on the bench IMO. A striker like Aubameyang, Morata or Higuain are what we need. With ability to run at pace with the ball.

    1. Ibra at Arsenal would have runners outside with pace, in the high line situation. Ibra has enough quality to make better use of that than any of our strikers can. Cavani is not the right type of winger for that situation. I would prefer Aubemeyang or Higuain but they are too unlikely, and Higuain is overpriced which Wenger doesn’t do.
