Emirate Cup Begins: The Young Guns To Watch Out For
Come one ,Come all. Its the start of another season of wonderful football from your one and only Arsenal Football Club. In usual tradition a couple of pre-season matches have gone down and we round it up with the Emirates Cup.
In normal fashion, Le Boss renowned for his tightfisted approach when it comes to new signings would be giving the younger players a run out on the pitch. Watch out for a couple who could break their way into the first team this coming season. Players such as Wilshere, back from his loan at Bolton, got plenty playing time and his overall game would have increased considerably. Other players to watch out for are Simpson who netted a brace against Barnett, Gibbs,Frimpong just to mention a few. So we’ll be taking a look at what makes these youngster’s the one’s to look at for.
A powerful midfielder with poise on the ball, and unrivalled ability to make the transmission between defense and attack. Although Ghanian born, he has played for England at youth level and has been identified as one with a genuine chance of making the grade at Arsenal. Already eighteen, he played in last season’s FA Youth Cup final and was handed a starting role against Barnett last week and his display was beyond his years as his terrier like tackling and darting attackin runs were a joy to behold. Also a threat from set-pieces. Could this be our new Vieira???
A strong, aggressive and talented central midfield playmaker, able to play on the wings as well. He shone during a loan spell with Watford last season alongside Man Utd’s Tom Cleverly, where he scored 4 goals in 16 games. Made a cameo appearance against Barnett and showed some good touches.
This young man needs no introduction to Arsenal fans. Already the youngest goal scorer in the history of our club and youngest player to ever play for the first team. A dimunitive playmaker/attacker who has been earmarked for a future spot in d English starting 11 thanks to his surging runs,eye for a killer pass and composure reminiscent of Dennis Bergkamp. He made 7 first team appearances last season before going on loan to Bolton where he drew plaudits for his maturity,physical and Mental strength and also grabbing his first premier league goal against West Ham.
Other players to look out for include Jay Simpson who is currently fighting for his Arsenal after 3 seasons out on loan. Keiran Gibbs who can be considered a senior youngster even though he’s just 19,will be a welcomed face after missing the last half of the season due to injury. Nordveit is another player after spending the whole of last season on loan in the german bundesliga. The jury is still out on the new signings so the Emirates Cup would provide the perfect platter to put to bed any doubts.
From wherever you’re reading this have a fun-filled day as you sit back and enjoy the tournament.
