Do you think Smith Rowe should play or sent out on-loan?

Emile Smith Rowe has been tipped as the next big talent to come out of the Arsenal academy and become a top star.

The young Englishman has yet to kick on this season, but his talent is obvious and he has spent time out on loan at RB Leipzig and Huddersfield.

He spent the second half of last season at the latter club and he was one of the players that helped them avoid relegation from the English second tier.

Arsenal decided not to send him out on loan for this campaign and he has remained at the Emirates.

This Arsenal team is evolving and there is also pressure on them to get back into the top four.

With the signing of Thomas Partey and the return to form of Mohamed Elneny, it is hard to see a place for Smith Rowe in the current Arsenal team.

The young Englishman is more of a creative midfielder, but it cannot be said that he has the required experience to help Arsenal at this stage.

It is understandable that Mikel Arteta hasn’t been involving him in the club’s first team, but it isn’t good for his football career.

The midfielder is at a stage in his development that he needs to play to keep developing well.

Would you like to see Arteta create space for him in the team or for him to be sent out on loan again?

  1. He has been out on loan long enough time for him to make his mark in an Arsenal Jersey. Let this not become another Gnabry mistake. Sold him and he became one of the worlds best. ESR just needs the right teacher.

  2. Bags of potential. I would love to see him get some 1st team football. I think it needs to be like arteta said and it needs to be earn. Perhaps some runnings in europa 1st. The first player we need to see in the prem is willock as he has earned it. I would also love to see a 433 formation. I’m thinking against bigger teams we play 1 no10 with elnenay and partey behind. And as a second 344 we play partey with willock and cebellos just ahead. This will give the option for us to rotate and allow ESR to push for coplmpetition. Also would help with the creativity problem.

    Slightly off topic put auba at front and martinelli/Saka on the left depending on if we need goals or creativity

  3. Frankly, Smithe-Rowe has not produced a very compelling highlight reel in the last year and a half. I would loan him, he needs consistent first team football to develop and make up for lost time. He needs a platform on which to show his value at this stage.

  4. A loan seems appropriate in the best interests of all concerned.I am sure Huddersfield would welcome him back with open arms.

  5. That player should have been in the first team long time ago, Arsenal must hold on to him, his young and a very good player

  6. Unless MA decides to change his defensive formation and thinking, I believe he should be sent out on loan – but at a bigger club than Huddersfield (Sorry Grandad).

    Firstly, there seems to be no place for ESR’s type of football, at least until MA is happy with the defence.
    I really can’t see where ESR, Martinelli and the luck will fit in, until that decision is made by MA and a 4-4-2 is given an extended try.

    As for where he goes, I cannot see how playing in the Championship for a club in 13th place at the moment will benefit him in any way. . .it seems that MA thinks likewise.
    He should be looking for a PL club like Brighton, Burnley, West Ham, Sheff. Utd or Fulham.
    His all round game needs to honed by playing with those of his level or above and the Championship’s 13th team is certainly not that.
    If The Arsenal cannot do it at this moment in time, send him out where HE will benefit for goodness sake, otherwise what is the point?

    I am getting more and more frustrated with the lack of playing time given to our gifted, skillful, attacking midfielders, “Emile is both a creator and scorer of goals, as well as being a danger from set pieces.” (Source Official handbook 19/20)

  7. Cant understand why he hasn’t featured so far. Another young player being held back. He either isn’t trusted or not good enough. Either way, if he doesn’t play we wont find out.
