Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal has been arguably the best club for talented youngsters over the years, with Mikel Arteta continuing the tradition of giving chances to players who have proven their worth regardless of their age.

Charlie Patino is the latest youngster being eased into life among the club’s senior players.

This might have played an important role in convincing Cruz to move to the Emirates.

  1. Wish the young man all the best, and hope he can develop further into a dependable player for the club.

    Love signings like these, low cost and low risk with a tremendous upside. Per has done a good job at the academy, let’s hope Lino will turn out to be another Gem for us.

  2. I wonder how many of our youngsters would become EPL ready if we just started actually playing them? Looking at Barca:

    They are in financial turmoil so they had to turn to their youth players. Now suddenly they have extremely promising youngsters playing in La Liga worth tens of millions (Pedri, Nico, Gavi..). Wouldve they got their chance under normal circumstances? I think not..
