Alex Iwobi (17)


#461

Yes indeed. Dortmund is my bundesliga club… you can thank Klopp for that.


#462

I love Iwobi, need to keep him regularly in the side after last season. He still needs to improve though, should not be a regular feature


#463

Hmm interesting


#464

ie not starting but should be getting minutes


#465

Hope he’s used well this year. No need to burn a kid out to develop his game. He can make his impact in bursts.


#466

Only time he shouldn’t be starting is when Alexis and Ozil both are. He’s our most creative player after them.


#467

Big season ahead for him. Looked promising during our pre-season.

“I like the fact that he can play in tight areas, that he turns the game forwards, that he’s very mobile.

We forget sometimes that Alex is still a very young player and that there’s a lot more to come from him. There must be a lot more to come from him because he has more personality in the game now.

“We expect him to be more efficient in the final third offensively, because you feel there are goals in there and assists too.

“They have to come out. Add that to the fact that he allows the team to play very well and he will be a top-class player.”

I like Iwobi, he’s probably one of the best 25 youngsters in world football

Baller. Great finish too, he used to be weak in front of goal, another Wenger creation :see_no_evil:


#482

Used to? He still is till he does it on a consistent basis.

Great finish though. Thought he was great today!

At times yeah but he cost us in some big games last season going for precision instead of power. Today his finish was spot on


#484

Excellent play, Good goal but a shot straight at the keeper shouldn’t be considered a good finish imo.

True.

Watching the replay in the pub I was shocked the keeper didn’t save it, it was literally just a bit above where his head was.


#486

@Leper Does it make sense now?


#487

Hope this goal is gonna be a great confidence boost for him.

#488

Nonsense, the keeper came out to cut down the angle and he hit it with power. The finish is fine.


#489

Didn’t rate the finish either, but he gets in decent positions and I suppose they all count.
