There is no denying that the youngsters have done brilliantly on the mini-tour of the USA and I am as guilty as anyone for getting very excited over their performances but some perspective is required before we get carried away.
Eddie Nketiah has done very well, he has scored three goals and done everything expected of him. Joe Willock and James Olayinka have both put in stellar performances in the midfield, Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka have not hit the heights of their fellow youngsters but have shown glimpses of their potential.
Robbie Burton, Tyreece John-Jules, Zech Medley and Dominic Thompson all did what was asked and of course, Gabriel Martinelli has shown us what talent he possesses.
So, we have a great bunch of kids and there is a good chance one or two of them will have a breakthrough season but we have to take into consideration the types of games we are playing, the opposition and of course the fact that almost every pre-season our youngsters impress.
I remember last year there was Emile Smith Rowe and what happened with him?
Don’t get me wrong, the kids are doing brilliant but I just do not see many of them getting into the first team on a regular basis once the season kicks off.
These kids will not drive us into the Champions League, these are not an Ajax bunch and the reality is that they are not the answer to the underlying issues with the team.
They will no doubt help, Willock looks special and I have a fondness for Olayinka but can you see Emery picking them ahead of Xhaka, Torreira and even Mattéo Guendouzi, I cannot.
Will Nketiah or Martinelli shift Lacazette or Aubameyang? And what of Nelson and Saka?
Emery just does not come across as the sort of manager that will regularly blood the youngsters in the Premier League, for some reason he has more confidence in the likes of Xhaka and dare I say, Mustafi.
So, yes, I am excited watching these kids play but I am realistic to know that it is far too early to get over-excited with them and I am very doubtful we will see much of them once the season kicks off in earnest.
