Loanee tipped to challenge for Arsenal first-team after World Cup

Birmingham boss John Eustace has tipped Auston Trusty to challenge for a first team role at Arsenal, insisting that he deserves his World Cup place.

The Gunners signed the defender early in 2022, whilst initially agreeing that he would stay with his former side on loan until the end of the term.

He has since arrived in the UK and sent out on another loan spell, this time with Birmingham in the Championship, where he has been a huge hit.

His current manager now claims that he deserves a chance to challenge for a role within our first-team.

Eustace is quoted as saying by HITC: “He is going to be a top player, he is going to go back to Arsenal and hopefully push for that first-team spot. He deserves to be going to the World Cup. His performances for us having been exceptional & they are only going to get better.”

Our defence isn’t currently an area we have much to worry about, but knowing we have another potential star set to return to the club to challenge for a role is an exciting prospect. Whether he could challenge for a role in our current side is a jump at present however, but if he continues as he is, he deserves his chance.

Which of our back four do you think could most be at risk of losing a starting spot?

  1. Aaron Trusty and Folarin Balogun were not meant to go on loan in the first place. We ought to be having an invincible season up till this moment at least, but Arteta gave away is quality squad depth.

    Arteta is too slow sometimes to spot things correctly, and we all know it. We would have lost Saliba with the way Arteta treated him if not for the club’s name and reputation.

    Arteta have flaws and blind spots tactically as well as in his personnel selections. He has to improve.

    And if he does, Arteta can become a world’s best coach. He’s has all he needs. He must take his chance.


    1. Another #Artetaouter. For your info, Trusty isn’t qualified for to play in the EPL yet. He hasn’t played up to 50% for USMNT. For Balogun, tell me how many matches he would played with Jesus and Nketiah Infront of him?
      Both decisions were not TOTALLY made by Arteta alone, but your HATRED has blinded your mind to these obvious reasons. They would both come back better having been playing every week instead of playing a bit part role in Arsenal.

    2. Are you suggesting that both Trusty and Balogun would be playing regular football at the Emirates this season had Arteta not had these flaws and blind spots?
      Saliba doesn’t look too unhappy either
      You are seeing a set of negatives which I don’t recognise at all

    3. “Aaron Trusty and Folarin Balogun were not meant to go on loan in the first place. We ought to be having an invincible season up till this moment at least, but Arteta gave away is quality squad depth.”

      That’s a straight up, blatant lie. This is the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT from Arsenal website on January 2022 when we signed Trusty:

      “Trusty, 23, will stay with the Colorado Rapids until at least the end of the Premier League season in May. The intention then is to loan him in Europe for the 2022/23 season to further progress his development. ”

      We must have one hell of a team, if we can lead the league with such a useless manager.
      Onder who does thetraining, coaching and the tactical set-up.
      Maybe you know?

  2. Trusty comes across as a really nice guy. I also rate his highlight reel about an 8/10, it shows some good passing abilities, and he also looks decent at LCB defensively speaking. Haven’t seen him live yet though. But fingers crossed that we’ve found another very good defensive option for our ranks

  3. My mate is a Blues fan and has watched Trusty extensively, he claims he’s raw but there is definitely talent,quick,tall and good in the air,we only signed him for £1.8M and my mate reckons he’s worth at least 5 times that

  4. He is doing very well but I would still like us to go for N’dicka who is available for free in the summer. Maybe a loan for Trusty to a premier league team or different league team who has qualified for UCL or EUL to gain more experience.

  5. Having seen Trusty for Birmingham, I doubt if he will be challenging for a place at the heart of the Arsenal defence any time soon.He is a decent player in a League in which there are few shining lights .
