Video: Superb Willock solo goal matches Alan Shearer’s record

Arsenal loanee Joe Willock has become only the second player to score in seven consecutive Newcastle matches.

The youngster joined the Magpies on loan in January and has hit some amazing form of late. Willock was limited to little playing time in North London, featuring predominantly in the Europa League, but left to join Newcastle on the promise of more regular action.

His solo goal can only have cemented the belief that Arsenal simply have to give him his chance in the first-team going into the new season however.

Has Willock shown that he is worthy of being a regular starter at the Emirates?

    We could be having the next Lampard or Gerrad under right under our noses. He should be given a chance.

  2. Thabani says:

    Miles ahead of ceballos and Willian

  3. jon fox says:

    Wow! Willock now looks an exciting player . CANT WAIT FOR NEXT SEASON WITH HIM BACK AS A REGULAR CHOICE. I am sure he won’t be sold but IF he were to be, think what he would now fetch in transfer fee.

    And who OK’d him to go to Newcastle. Now let me think… Oh YES … ARTETA, the manager so many Gooners want out. Funny old world at times!

    We father being Cebalos, bench Willock, bring odengaar, Bury Willock on Loan.

    Arteta is a complété facilité, WE are thé year’s biggest losers gain, no cup to vide it this time.

    Breaking his last year Infamous record at 8th place, but Beats a New one with no Europe football this time.

    I have a feeling Emery is wining EL, but already showed hé is not toncompare with an assistant coach, have him a coaching lesson, showing hé is not lucky,, in final again, unlecky to mode it with a limites squad!

    Réalité speaks, i just relaying.’.

    Willock comes back in…

    Danny goes back to Madrid and followed out the door with Elneny, Torriera, Matteo & possibly Xhaka to sign Bissouma.

    AMN is the next question as what to do with him?

    1. ACE says:

      He should join Guendouzi, Torreria and Xhaka out
      the door this summer. £15-20M should do the trick.
      With a new RB as a top priority and CC providing
      quality depth at the position there just doesn’t seem
      to first 11 minutes for the Englishman anywhere on
      the pitch.

  6. Reggie says:

    Willock got sent to Newcastle by Arteta because he didnt see a place for him instead of Ceballos or Odergaard, another mistake. Willock like Saliba, not given a fair crack of the whip by Arteta. He was our stand out player in the EL and Arteta couldn’t or didnt want to see it. Arsenal will keep Willock i would imagine but if i was willock i wouldn’t hold much hope of regular football.

    1. Kimbowa Henry Njabire says:

      Be positive please in your analysis. Arteta just gave a promising Player who needed more playing minutes he could not give a chance to showcase his Talent at another Club that can grant him more playing time. Don’t forget ESR Was also sent on a loan where he got more playinh time & confidence. He is now an assess as Willock can become.

  7. Declan says:

    Thought it was Vieira at first look.

  8. Twig says:

    We should play him as a no. 8 or even 9 as his first instinct seems to be to score and not assist / pass. We need a creative player who can dictate play (a la Fabregas, Cazorla etc)

  9. Grandad says:

    Willock proved once again how much energy and pace he has apart from his knack of sticking the ball in the net.Next season , Arteta now knows he an use Willock as a b to b midfielder in a 4-3-3 set up. Our Manager has made numerous errors this season .Hopefully he will have learned from his mistakes and will have us challenging for a top four position next season.Anything else is not acceptable to fans, myself included, nor should it be to our Owners.One final point, to those who want or wanted Arteta replaced by Ancelloti, perhaps you would like to review your recommendation.

  10. bangj says:

    Cebellos replacement ready 😉

  11. mish says:

    Funny world, funny fans……i can recall how almost everyone in here, seems to be on the manager’s neck each time he appears on game day, they wanted him out……even when our former under 23 coach freddie was voicing out, vouching the immense talent of this lad, fans who feel they knew much better were scoffing him

    1. Pandu says:

      But Edu must fight for the signature of odegard

  12. Tawanda Chagutah says:

    Even if willock comes back he will not get a regular starting berth because the coach doesn’t believe in him …he will probably play him 4 or 5 matches if he doesn’t score then bench n eventually not even in the match day squad
    Give him another loan spell Westham he plays europa league gets more exposure let him come back stronger
