Alex Iwobi (17)


#851

going through a bad run.

Might not play at the weekend anyways, cos of his hammy


#852

Game like today, against this kind of team, he needs to score.


#853

Still miles ahead of Welbeck in terms of usefulness for the team. Still creating massive chances in these bad performances of his while Mkhitaryan and the like create nothing.


#854

Welbeck and Iwobi, just residues of their dads…


#855

Ffs


#856

Simply not good enough .


#857

I dunno, it’s hard to judge any player now with the shit going on. Feels like every player would do well under different regime.


#858

Simply shit.
Together with Welbeck… Double shitburger


#859

:joy:


#860

Roy Hodgson got Welbeck scoring for England
Wenger can’t get Welbeck scoring full stop .
Shocking


#861

It is really difficult to find attacking players scoring “absolute zero”.
Even shit burgers… no, shit players will score some odd goals here and there.
Sanogo scored 4 against BVB, right?
Bad management / bad coaching is one thing, some players are just bad.
Welbeck’s shooting ability is on par with Sanogo… Shit.


#862

Has been very good today—2 assists (on Welbeck goals no less). It’s relegation fodder at home, but a good performance.


#863

He got the pre assist on the other goal too :grinning:

But yeah, he gets so much abuse, it’s only fair we notice when he puts in a class performance.


#864

Should’ve had the pre-assist on the Welbeck empty net miss too, absolute class to carve that chance out.

Have no doubt that if a good manager came in he’d see him as a really quality squad player.


#865

I think he has the attributes to more than a squad player; besides Pierre-Emerick he played head and shoulders above the rest. Nearly everything that creative came from him.


#866

Hehad a very good game, hopefully he can play like that more often.


#867

Played ok. Just hope it wasn’t just because Southampton were poor.


#868

I’m probably being glass half full here, but Iwobi and Welbeck both playing well means they should both have gained confidence – that’s good for our EL hopes, right?!


#869

He’s obviously not a bad player, but he shouldn’t be the 3rd option either. Or even the starter when we don’t play Wilshere and Ramsey at the same time.


#870

Agree on the second part, but let’s not forget it was Mark Hughes’ Southampton at home. But yeah, definitely wouldn’t rule it out him developing into something more than a squad player, just being cautious there, as it will depend on a lot of variables if he turns out to be something a bit more. In short, quality player who has gotten some truly strange abuse here this season, lol.
