Is Arsenal’s Academy As Good As Some Think?

In the past years Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger keeps telling himself and the club’s fans that the future is big for the Gunners and that the academy will soon become the engine of the team. This setup is supposed to provide so many talents that the team won’t be able to carry them all, but after 15 years of having Wenger at the club, we see ourselves not much farther ahead right now.

The Academy striker Sanchez Watt has just signed a loan move with Crawley until the end of the season and is due to join the club soon.

Aneke is ready to attack Arsenal’s first team.

Arsenal’s young offensive midfielder hot-shot Chuks Aneke made his breakthrough in Arsenal’s reserve team at only 18 years of age, and he also marked his first ever debut for the senior Gunners in the Carling Cup game against Shrewsbury Town. He came in as a 90th minute substitute in the club’s win against Shrewbury.

The English U-19 international offered a statement for Arsenal.com regarding his run this season.

“To be honest I haven’t really got an answer. We’ve got a lot of good players around the Club and a lot of quality so we should be winning games. For some reason it’s not going like that at the moment but I’m pretty sure that soon we will bounce back and start winning some games.”
