Wenger Hails “Unbelievable” £10m Starlet

By on September 22, 2011

Arsene Wenger has hailed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s performance in their Carling Cup victory over Shrewsbury on Tuesday.

The £10million summer signing marked his first senior debut with a fine strike and Wenger was quick to praise the 18-year old.

“He grew through the game and became stronger and stronger,” Wenger said.

“What came out was unbelievable – you didn’t expect it after the first half.

“You could see that he will be a first-team player here, that is for sure. He has still things to work on but, very quickly, he will be knocking on the door.”

Arsenal had to come from behind to beat the League Two outfit 3-1, you can watch extended highlights included Chamberlain’s goal here.

    At least we are sure he will not join some boyhood club when he comes of age. Not a DNA barca fan.

    Hope these hypes dont go to his head. He is a sharp kid with resolute and confidence to shoot on sight. Wenger said all the kid need to do is bug him for games. Lets see if this happens. At the moment, this kid could be godsent with so many players who are diffident in front of goal.

    What is of vital importance is the ongoing and consistent performances from our defenders. We are still very shaky, very disorganized and lacks confidence at the back.

    It is rather disappointing that Mr. Wenger would not bring in more able men in his coaching team, believing that after 32 years as a coach he cannot benefit and learn anything new. Fans will always be uneasy when they witness the comedy of errors at the back. Bringing a new coach will not undermine his position but enhance it.

    Like I have argued since June, only the greedy Board and possibly Arsene Wenger know why the Frenchman is still in-charge at Arsenal. Even Manchester United who won the League moved early to bolster their already strong squad. Arsene Wenger, on the other hand, having finished fourth (trophy-less again), refused to buy, waiting for cheap-signings at the end of August 2011. Even after Clichy, Fabregas, Nasri and Eboue had left, he refused to strengthen until Manchester United hammered some sense (8-2) into his obstinate head! Arsene Wenger may have won a few trophies in the past, but the man has always been more of a gambler than an shrewd manager. He should leave or be fired RIGHT NOW before he irredeemably embarrasses himself and Arsenal FC! Arsene Wenger’s “spokesmen” have attacked me before for questioning the squad’s quality and depth during the summer transfer window. What do they have to say now?

    My name Delmeine Bosser a loyal fan of arsenal fc. I just wana share my view on the current situation at the gunners. I don’t think Mr. Arsene the real problem. _ The problem with the players that don’t want to step up and take responsibility. Firstly let me start with fabregas,nasri,clichy,bendner,aboue,denilson. Those players in my eyes didn’t make arsenal a TEAM,they were individually good. Enough said about them,but there a few problems still existing. Some of the problems existing-the team don’t play as a team,the players don’t believe in themselves,they don’t step up to there responsibilities,they must not let other players dictate them(be more physical with flair).the main problem for me is that we play football for only 45 minutes and then they fade. _ Arsenal always start the season being in the top3 and now they find themselves in a different situation. This is the time the players have to step up and show character. There one player that reminds me of that and it gilberto. He wasn’t skillful or fast. He was criticized and fans use to say he not a ideal arsenal player,but he just went on playing football and showed character,class and leadership. He played for arsenal with heart,passion and integrity. He was not a star player but he brought balance to the team,a unsung hero at arsenal… _ I still believe mr. Arsene the best man for the job,but the players must step up and be counted. Arsenal is still a classy team,but they need to believe in themselves. We gonna come back I believe we are still winner material. _ Arsenal loyal fan Delmeine
