    Somewhere between the 65-70 minute mark, Eddie started feeling tired and stopped pressing for a while and I clearly heard Mikel say, "Eddie we do not stop!"

    I love his hunger for goals but I don't know why he was so angry there, Pepe tried to square it to him twice but there were too many bodies in the way. :lol:

    I'm still not a big fan, but he's been getting goals this season but has a welbeck-ish around him.

    If Welbeck was a consistent goalscorer he would have been one of the best forwards on the planet.

    If welbeck could stay fit he would still be in our squad. Very useful player, great humble character to have. He would be our Elneny for forward positions.

    What do you mean "would have been", the Welbatros clearly was!

    Played for the 2 best managers of the Premiership-era and won every top flight trophy available in England, Danny "Big Game" Welbeck an absolute legend.

    Feels like I am the only one who doesn't see anything special about him. Was burnt with my love for Akpom. Think Martinelli is going to be our future CF with Nketiah getting sold.

    He feels like that kid in school that doesn't have all the talent but still gets great grades back in high school. It's harder at University though. He could become very good imo, but still ways to go. Sometimes hard work doesn't get you there

    I would agree with this. I like Eddie but he just feels forced.

    Before Martinelli’s knee though, I don’t think he featured much under Arteta? Could be imagining it I need to find the numbers for that.

    I love Welbinho but that's a big overstatement. :lol:

    It's cause he's not really a combination player. He's the guy who's going to be on the end of the moves. He feels like he's on the periphery of games but comes alive in the box. Much like Auba was for a long time, until he added much more to his game.

    Smart man. Gotta be careful on here, next thing you know someone would have been ridiculing a completely unrelated post of yours in a few weeks/months saying "aren't you the guy who said Eddie is better than CR7?":lol:

    People want their CFs to be all-rounders who can score goals on their own. Essentially, they want Thierry Henry - because we've been spoiled for multi-talented CFs over the last 20-25 years. I understand it. I sometimes look at other prospects like Martinelli and even TJJ/Balogun and their all-round capacity in relation to Nketiah's. I grew up with Wrighty and Bergkamp, Anelka and Henry. I have vivid memories of Adebayor in 07/08 being the perfect CF. RVP in 2011. We've been SPOILED.

    Nketiah's not Henry. I think he has the capacity to be similar to Wright, and evidently Wrighty himself agrees because he's taken an active involvement in Nketiah's development for a while. Thierry rated Eddie too when he was coaching at the U18s aswell, so there's something there with him. I think there's more in his locker than we're seeing. A lot of players have to rely on their strengths when breaking through - Eddie's is scoring no matter what it takes. I'm cool with that for now. He's a 21 year old forward with a good goals-to-minutes ratio comparative to his experience level.

    How far he takes that is up to him. Staying fit, fighting Lacazette for minutes and scoring crucial goals for us will help his cause. If he keeps doing that and improving along the way, he'll make it very difficult to see past him.

    I remember that time at the bar when you picked up a girl that you held grudge against for years and you told her that. Impressive.
