Arsenal, as usual, kicked off our pre-season away at Boreham Wood, but the result was a bit different to last year when we won 8-0 in Unai Emery’s first game as the Gunners coach.
This time it was the youngsters’ turn and here was the Arsenal starting XI: Hein; Swanson, McGuiness, Medley, Thompson; Smith, Burton; Olayinka, Coyle, Tormey; Balogun.
Arsenal subs: Okonkwo, Clarke, Olowu, Ogungbo, Greenwood, Cottrell, Amaechi, John-Jules, Dennis.
Our Man Of The Match was Tyreece John-Jules, who came on for the second half and scored both goals in our late comeback with Xavier Amaechi backing him up from the left-wing. Arsenal were 2-0 down after just 15 minutes, but Matt Smith pulled one back only to see The Wood score again before the break. Then began the John Jules show, and you can see all the action as reported by Hughwizzy, the famous Arsenal supporting youtube star. If you go to his Twitter page he is giving away a new Arsenal Shirt!
Plz announce Tierney, Diallo, Fekir, Ziyech
Out- Mustafi, Elneny, Mkhitarayan, Ozil
I think only Mustafi and Elneny can be sold
Tierney is ours, whereas Fekir and Ziyech are just the younger version of Ozil
Young players should be get chances. Leno is not good enough for Arsenal and Defenders also need to update.
Sure Leno not good but ozil, iwobi, mustafi, xhaka are good right? ?
Did you watch Leno last season? He saved us so much. He was one of our best players, and best keeper I’ve seen at Arsenal since Lehmann. Agree that our defence needs sorting though.
If Leno has been playing for Man Utd last season he would be called world class now .
Yes he made a few errors but from what I’ve seen I think he’s very special and easily my player of the season .
Not sure what games you watched last season tbh .
OT: Ozil just launched his game studio in London
This guy would go nowhere
It’s a business he isn’t even directly involved in (I’m guessing he just funds it with money he gets from walking about in an Arsenal shirt). Even if he was actually involved he can still be in turkey paying for fenebache or anywhere else doing it.
If it wasn’t 4 da ridiculous wages our players were on we could’ve easily sold miki, ozil, mustafi for 100mil and inject that money into the club for players 4 really need.
Leno not good enough this is the craziest comment I have seen in a while he was our best signing better than toriera
? Very consistent first season, given who were playing in front of him.
