Alex Iwobi (17)


#1052

I know a thing or two about posting after a few beers


#1053

If there’s one player who we can say has improved with Emery so far, then Iwobi has been that player. Has been fantastic anytime he’s on the field. Going at defenders and making chances, he looks like he’s bulked up and is he’s been given a tactic by Emery and he stick’s by it. For me I’d drop Ramsey and put Iwobi out the wing and move Ozil into the middle (Ozil has got better in the last few weeks under Emery too). If he keep’s up playing like he has Iwobi will become one of our more important players.


#1054

Absolutely. That’s the difference a good manager does.


#1055

Iwobi and Bellerin are the biggest improvers this season under Emery.


#1056

Bellerin struggled a bit in the first two games or so, but he’s been pretty Solid since. Iwobi just been like a new signing for us, he was MOTM for me at the Chelsea and Watford games.


#1057

Cech too I’d say


#1058

Yeah, he has only looked shaky trying to play out from the back.

That aside he’s been our best player this season.


#1059

Iwobi yes, while Bellerin still needs to learn how to defend.


#1060

Not 100% sold on him yet… I have been on the fence about him for a while and I am definitely increasing my confidence level that he will be a good player for us, I’m still not sure I see enough consistency in his decision-making.

What I do like about him is that he is one of the few players who is willing and able to take players on and does seem to combine well with our other attacking players.

I’d agree that right now he deserves a starting spot out wide in lieu of Ramsey but I still feel like we need to get a top winger in the winter or next summer.


#1061

Lol why do you hate Bellerin so much. :joy:

He’s been one of our best players this season


#1062

Iwobi has shown similar output previously as well, people were just too down on him.


#1063

I reckon he has been very good forward, but still needs to improve at the back.


#1064

It’s no coincidence that since Torreira has been starting that Bellerins defensive performances have improved. He has been left so isolated it’s no wonder he gets a hard time. Anyway this is about Iwobi so will leave it there.


#1065

I love his directness.

What a guy. Have my babies Iwobi.


#1066

Iwobi seems to be thriving under Emery, looks full of confidence ATM, he’s powerful and relatively direct, hopefully it continues.


#1067

Look, a manager who plays him at his strength, instead of converting him into a pass merchant.


#1068

Jay-Jay Okocha’s nephew ladies and gents

Iwobi Killmonger imo.


#1069

Play him every game.


#1070

Them quick feet combined with ridiculous strenght is becoming trademark Iwobi. Ramsey can watch from the bench against Fullham please.


#1071

:fire: Must starter from now. Absolutely top class under Emery.
