The Arsenal Thread

For Arsenal fans


posted 11 hours, 55 minutes ago

Providing Man U don’t strengthen too much, Chelsea are the club we need to be targeting overhauling. Also worth bearing in mind, no one was talking about Ndombele last summer. Maybe someone like Willock will have a breakout season for us?

Crazier things have happened.

The difference is that Lyon have been bringing theirs academy players to first team and turn them into stars for years. It's their business model. Who was our real academy star? Bellerin? Wilshere before that?

Also, Willock and Ndombele are completely different players. Willock is a more attack-minded midfielder. Ndombele is a powerful, box-to-box player with excellent dribbling and good passing. I'd much rather have a player like that than Xhaka in our ranks.

I’ve not seen Ndombele play, so my point was more about players becoming highly rated very quickly these days, rather than comparing him playing wise with Willock.

I agree though about our academy compared to Lyon’s. We used to bring through young players a lot more successfully before we moved to the Emirates.

Which is rather ironic.

Well, IAWT, looks like it’s confirmed that Ndombele is signing for Spurs.

The scary thing is he is the exact type of player they needed.

We’re gonna have to pray that he doesn’t adapt to the Prem otherwise they could be challenging City and Liverpool for the title next season.

You really hate to see it.

Arsenal sign a player from France and it is all 'poverty league' stuff.
Spurs do it and we all shiiiit our pants?
Just another Bakayoko.

Let’s hope they still have those issues when we play them Lex! Really wanna beat those mugs. Will probably need to seek some form of retribution after our inevitable thrashing at Anfield.

Like I said, I hope you’re right DJ. I want you to be right. And it would be hilarious if Spurs absolutely smash their transfer record on a player that flops. But it remains to be seen.
