    Not just last couple of games it's a trend that goes back to last season. It seems his game and especially finishing from youth to senior football isn't translating that well.

    I'd give him one more season to prove himself and then sell if he doesn't impress. We need to be more ruthless and sell some of those who don't pass the test, that way we at least get a couple of quids out of it.

    And then he let Dembele get away from him to score. He needs to leave.

    Looks like Maitland Niles played him onside there. Had a shocking game

    He's basically scored or almost scored everytime he's played, what more does he need to do to convince you ?. Not saying he's the finished article but the promise is there, to say he is a flop is unnecessary hyperbole.

    Didn't see beginning of the game. What happened to Lacazette ? Was he injured in the duel ? Ankle ?

    He's not a right back. I'd argue we're weaker there than LB. Season fell apart after Hector's injury, and even he is upgradeable.

    The attack isnt improving. We are team who have plan A which is cut backs. Then we have nothing. Hard to blame attackers. Put Xhaka praised it well last season. Emery only comes up with defensive solutions.

    Yes, because the journalist asked him "how's your French" as a joke.

    Needs to be more positionally aware in general. I am worried his confidence might be taking a hit playing in a position he’s clearly not comfortable/good in.

    Willock looked good in the first half as did Nelson when we came on. Team as a whole seemed to run out of steam.

    So we need a RB, LB and a CB before the start of next season or we are screwed.

    I think we're beginning to see that Eddie isn't ready. Especially for all the "sell Laca, play Eddie" fans. I dare say that Akpom was more ready yet he didn't make the first team at Arsenal.
    Nketiah needs to go on loan. Go and play week in week out and see what it is to be a top 9 at a football club. It's a massive jump from U23. Playing back up and scoring the odd goal here and there isn't it at all. He's played 3 preseason games where he's missed chances and fans are already on his back. Imagine if these were league games where the results actually matter.

    He's got the movement and the hunger is there too but needs to learn to be a clinical finisher. Like we say where I'm from, "it's not by gra-gra". Basically means, it's not about pushing and shoving and aggressiveness. There are techniques to this game and Eddie needs to learn it.

    As for Willock, I think I can trust him in some games. You can see the "arrogance" is slowly coming out. This will help him in the long run. But with Ceballous, Torreira, Guendouzi in the team, should he be satisfied with sub appearances and occasional games? For a 19 year old, my opinion is NO. I think he can fit into the first 11 of a PL side. I'd rather watch him play week in, week out.

    Up to him though.
