    This is the lad some Arsenal fans described as lazy.

    Pity Arsenal could not benefit from his services right NOW!

    Crikey, looks as promising as most had first hoped.
    Just shows he was at the wrong loan club before, surrounded by the wrong people.
    May this trend continue!

    Very exciting close ball control and footwork. Lads got some great moves and bags of confidence, could be a dazzling player if he continues to improve as he grows.

    took your time getting this up, I watched that clip last week.

    As Jimi says, Levante were not helping his developement at all. The guy has self belief off the scale and believes he should be a starter for any side. So start him. Sink or swim. Looks like he’ll swim just fine. a rough diamond I just wish he was under Arsene’s control.

    I’m concerned that Botelho has now been sent to Levante for the remainder of the season after doing well in the first half.

    Is Wenger’s reluctance to sign Cissokho an indication that Pedro is coming home to Arsenal next season??

    i think we are getting a bit too excited. he is playing in the spanish second division, arshavin would look like maradonna if he were playing there. not to say it wasn’t an impressive display, but let’s not get carried away like with vela.

    I don’t think people are getting carried away, he’s just a ray of hope…. much like Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is right now. I’n not comparing the two in ability but the same effect.

    Everyone needs a lift every now and then.
    Currently Arsenal are performing disappointingly and news snippets like this help divert our attentions from the bad news going about.

    We can all hope he is the next Ronaldinho and can rip it up on the field at the emirates for the next decade.

    He might be playing in the Spanish 2nd division but AOC was playing a division below last year. If AW is going to persist with the 4-3-3 formation I am starting to look at AOC, Myachi and Wellington and wonder if we should not have all 3 with us vying for a 1st team spot. In the 4-3-3 all of them would be looking to play as the wing forwards off from a main striker, currently RVP. This looks to be where all of these 3 would be more naturally suited to. Currently we seem to rotate Walcott, Gervinho and Arshavin. Out of these I would continue with Gervinho in this role but Arshavin looks finished at Arsenal and Walcott should be staking his claim as a lead the line striker for me now as for me he has developed as much as he can as a wide player and falls some way behind these 3 youngsters in technical ability and dribbling skills. These 3 may be young but I am starting to think their ability as wing forwards is more natural and above that of AA or Theo, and we are therefore not playing our strongest team. Give Theo his chance as a main striker and if it works out great but if not get another goal-scorer at the end of the season. These 3 youngsters could stop us having to fork out for Hazard or Goetze and we could then get the player I think would be better, which is Eriksson of Ajax, who looks much more like Modric as a midfield schemer, who can influence the game equally both from deep midfield or in the attacking 3rd.
