Maitland-Niles says I just want “to show the world how good I am,’

It delights Ainsley Maitland-Niles to have earned a loan move away from Arsenal to West Brom as he gets set to play regular football.

He fell down the pecking order at the Emirates and needed to leave the Gunners to play more often.

After earning an England call up at the start of the season, he is keen to be on the plane when the Three Lions travel for the Euros in the summer.

He wouldn’t achieve that if he doesn’t play regularly, and has sought to fix that now.

The midfielder was played rarely and out of position at Arsenal, but now he should be considered one of the first names on the team sheet at the Hawthorns in his preferred midfield role.

He was speaking after his move to Sam Allardyce’s side and reiterated that he is delighted to be at the club because all he ever wants to do is to play regular league football.

He is also hopeful that he will help the Baggies win their fight against relegation.

‘It’s fantastic to have the opportunity to play regularly in the Premier League. It’s all I’ve ever wanted, to show the world how good I am,’ Maitland-Niles told West Brom’s official website as quoted by the Metro

‘I want to say a huge thank you to all the West Bromwich Albion fans. They’ve sent me lots of messages on social media. I’m proud to be a member of the club and I want to kick on from here. 

‘Their messages give me the energy and the drive to keep on going every single day. 

‘We’re in a tough situation at the moment. I wanted to be a part of the fight. I wanted to grit my teeth and get down and dirty and see I come out of it. I want to come out on top of it and I want the club to come out on top of it. 

‘Hopefully I’m a player who can help this club survive in the Premier League.’

    Another player that questioned the great and powerful Oz has been sent away from the club.

    The “banished ones” seem to be playing well and their new managers seem happy with their performances.
    Saliba appears “ready to play”, Guendouzi seems coachable.

    Lesson is sit down and shut up. Nevermind the 10 losses, ignore the lack of style and philosophy, don’t dare question Arteta.

      Good observations Durand and, by the way, my reply to our left back discussion was finally produced.

  4. JOEL says:

    He’s going to struggle to show anyone anything playing for a dreadful WBA team.
    He should have believed a bit more in himself and taken a risk in moving to one of the other sides interested in him…where he would have had to fought to be allowed to play in his more favoured position…

    Big Sam brings on 2 new signings into central midfield at two down.

    WBA looked for better instantly.

    Who was moved OUT of centre mid’ to wide right ?

    Ainsley ain’t gonna hack believe me.

  6. A J says:

    “hack it”

  7. Yossarian says:

    I always, thought Guendouzi was good and think he’ll end up back at Arsenal. Don’t know about Saliba. Have seen seen enough of AMN to think that maybe West Brom is the right level for him and he isn’t the way forward at AFC.
