Video: Arsenal’s highly-rated youngster Charlie Patino scores amazing solo goal

Charlie Patino has been the talk of the town in recent weeks, with many claiming that he will be the next name to break through from the academy into the Arsenal first-team, and he is doing little wrong to convince us otherwise.

The 17 year-old has been praised from a number of sources lately, with him supposedly having impressed our senior players when featuring during a friendly win over Brentford during the international break.

His latest effort for the Under-23 side to close out the win for Arsenal over Manchester United’s Under-23 side was a delight also, not only winning the ball back from our rivals, but then taking it past three defenders before chipping the goalkeeper to seal the victory.

Could Patino get the nod to make his senior debut in the EFL Cup when we take on Wimbledon next week?

    Wow, he’s so calm on the ball. Like Wilshere but faster and doesnt hold on to the ball that long.

    Love the fight to match the skill. It’s what is missing in the seniors.

    I do not want this lad to train with the “seniors” who are here to collect their wage and hop/skip/jump and ruin himself with their attitude and limited abilities. Good Mikel is weeding out the weeds and thistles. Maybe next season when they are all gone and we have a fresh Mikel Arteta team, new ideas, new blood, new goals and new achievements.

      Interesting comments but where are the facts to back up your assertions.I certainly agree with your comments concerning the limited ability of certain experienced players, but the attitude of the likes of Holding and Chambers is not in doubt as far as I am concerned.Perhaps you could identify the guilty parties as far as you are concerned?As regards Patino, I have heard from a few who follow our youngsters that he is up there with the best of them and should be first team material before too long.

        Grandad – Holding, Chambers, Xhaka, Elneny, AMN,Laca, Nelson, Eddie -lovely happy individuals with limited abilities, lucky these fellas came 20 years after the likes of Adams, big Pat , Henry and DB10. No desire to win games as it is evident from the smiles and jokes on the training pitch. Kolasinac, if you remember his time with Schalke? We have some very good talent – Karl (GK), Jules Tyreece, Ballard, Azeez, etc for the next two seasons to debut.

          LC Grandad spoke about those with poor attitudes and questioned your choices. I agree with him that many who have limited talent, such as Holding and Chambers and even Xhaka, do not lack fight at all.
          They are not good enouigh IMO, BUT TO CRITICISE THEIR ATTITUDES IS NOT FAIR OR TRUE EITHER.

    That put a big smile on my face, he looks a player, you love to see
