Is Arsenal’s Miyaichi being wasted at Wigan?

What has happened to Ryo Miyaichi? by AH

Miyaichi was promised to be something special by Wenger when we signed him to professional terms back in January 2011. Wenger said; “We’re delighted that Ryo Miyaichi has joined us. He trialled with us in the summer and has raw ability which has attracted many clubs around the world.” Two years on and he still is known as a prodigy.
Now, admittedly the 20 year old has spent his time out on loan for the majority of the time he has been with the club. When he signed, Ryo went straight on loan to Dutch club Feyenoord, where he impressed in all the games he played in his time at the club. At the end of the 2010-2011 season he had made 12 appearances in the Dutch league and scoring 3 goals and gaining numerous assists, which is an impressive tally for a player who was playing for his Japanese High school team just 6 months previous.

Has Wenger wasted £3.5m buying Wellington?

Arsenal fans have been waiting with baited breath for the official arrival of the young Brazilian Wellington Silva in January when he turns 18, but there have been serious doubts about the youngsters discipline and commitment since the deal to take him to the Emirates was made early this year.

Arsenal have had Wellington over for three “adaption periods” and for training with the Gunners youth teams, but although he was supposed to be returning to Fluminense before the official move, Arsenal have kept him in London after he fell out with the Fluminense management over his attitude.

England blow it and Wilshere is wasted on the bench

The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere helped the England U21s to beat Romania in the U21 play-offs on Friday, but was robbed of the chance to celebrate with his team-mates because he was promoted to the England senior team for yesterdays game.

But even though England were struggling to find a way through the Montenegrin defence for the full 90 minutes, poor Jack was left to squirm in embarrassment on the bench instead of being given his chance to make an impact.
