The Kids are Back in Town
Great news last night with the Gooner Kids putting six unanswered goals past Sheffield Utd.
However, when you bear in mind that Gallas and Almunia practically double the average age of the rest of the first XI, and that Bendtner, Vela, Song, Ramsey and Djourou are already full internationals for their countries, its clear that these kids are a class act, and are very close in standard to the other kids who play for the first XI.
Still, its good to see players like Jack Wilshere, Kieren Gibbs, Mark Randall , Fran Merida and Carlos Vela get a proper run out for the team and do well. Its a massive feather in the cap for AW and allows us Gooners one of those nice days when you can gloat at anyone you see and say something condescending about why Arsenal didn't need to replace Flamini, Hleb and Senderos over the summer because of the talent coming through.
And for today at least, its 100% true.
