I’ve read Hewelt is more likely to be promoted to the senior squad and this guy will develop with Unsy.

A couple of the Arsenal fans I follow consider this guy a big loss. Their stand out youth keeper. Hopefully he is the new back up to Pickford next season.

So he could be Golden Virginia then?

knowing brands, we will see stek sold for 5m in january and this lad promoted.  

If we get 5m for stek, the worlds truly gone mad! I would just be happy getting him off the wage bill if this kids good enough.

Good move for him and us if he plays. Could cause a problem if he plays and plays really well then returns to us wanting 1st team football. Cant see Pickford going anytime soon.

Yeah I think he will give us one more season but realistically if he wants champs league city, Liverpool and Chelsea all have young keepers. Spurs maybe if loris goes? Can’t see levy spending £70 million on a keeper though.

For me Digne walks into city’s side. That’s one position they lack. If spurs play a back three which I think they might this season that’s why they are happy to sell trippier and rose. They will sign sessegon to play as left wing back. Possibly sissoko as right wing back. I’ve said it before Digne is the best left back in the premiership. Robertson gets the plaudits as he attacks so much. His defending isn’t as good as Lucas’s and the counter attacking style Liverpool play makes him look better than he is.

Their fans want him sent back to us. 

Thought that might be the case. Good experience for him though, hopefully he can turn it around.

 

Reading play in the cup tomorrow, might try and catch some of it if I can get a stream.

no wonder arsenal let him go

If anyone can come up with any 'keeper who hasn't had a howler like that in their career then I'll be astounded. One incident doesn't define the man.

Like others have said, unfortunately it's not his first this season!

Remember when De Gea started out at United? 

Not comparing the two... Just takes others longer to get in the swing of things.

Not every young kid coming through will be first team material, I keep saying this, the numbers that make it are a tiny percentage. Things like this will help him though, getting some real football, taking the stick from the fans. It will help his development massively!

I dislike this signing, loaning and then they're not deemed good enough and get sold. I know it's now commonplace but Beckham Scholes Butt Giggs GNev played regularly and look where it got Utd. Brands was supposedly pro young players but the likes of DCL, Holgate and Davies aren't getting regular run-puts due to subsequent 'big name signings' so do we really have a youth policy?

Interestingly though, all three of them started the last match. Young players shouldn't just get a chance because they're young, and so far none of them have really merited extended time on the pitch bar DCL (who has plenty of time up front this season).

That was a once in a life time situation. They’ve not had a player come close to the  class of 92 since 

Took the words out of my mouth; they became what they became through a freak occurrence of them all coming through at the same time, not happened before and likely never will again.
