Play them or lose them

Are we holding back careers with having a large squad. The competing for places is so good that the bench v everton was RVP rosicky walcott gibbs eboue denilson and chesney all full capped internationals bar denilson.

Vela was seen in bar in madia vale over the on friday night guess he knew he had weekend off.
"Carlos vela is in here on the beers with his girlfriend Imogen Thomas"
Defo not a tranny this time.
But you can see why he's putting on wieght and out of form.

With JET also he's too good for the reserves (if you haven't seen his goal from last week) they are good enough to be playing week in week out for most teams and has had only had three sub appearances this year.
With us not using the carling cup as a B team torney, it does leave you wondering if these guy are gona make a career at arsenal or go elsewhere.
Young guns blog touched on the point about our youth developing together and the use of barca b (or barca athletic if you like.)
the best example of this concept is Barcelona. The Spanish giants make sure that their youngsters are constantly playing and progressing with each other, creating a loyalty to the club and their team mates. After the youth team they are placed in Barcelona B who play in the Spanish Segunda League playing competitive football week in, week out with each other , developing as a team, as footballers and as human beings. The rewards are there for all to see, with the majority of the Barcelona first team consisting of previous youth and B team players.

Now barca b has been running in some sort of form since the 40's so obviously would be almost impossible for us to set up. without pretty much taking over a lower league team.

But it does beg the question why havent we done this before?

Surely it should be put before the league that reserve team should be allowed to play in the same league system as the A team.

Afobe recently gone on loan. And doing well had a couple of goals and an assist v rotherham.

RSD out.
