Frimpong and another youngster the new stars in Malaysia

By 1970’s Gooner

Ok it was a run of the mill friendly in Asia. I did not expect that we will put up a super show. But there were a few noticeable performances that have to be mentioned.

Firstly Nasri, when he came on, looked disinterested. He played as though he didn’t want to be there. Maybe as time goes on he will swallow his pride and realize that Wenger means business.

Secondly Rosicky was out of touch as he was indeed on a every occasion he was trusted by Wenger last season. He needs to be shifted out of Arsenal as soon as soon as possible.

Thirdly Miayaichi was great. He is every inch a winger and a very fast one too. He will be, along with Walcott, Arsenal’s wingers for years to come. Wenger has unearthed another gem here.

Fourthly and most importantly Frimpong hardly put a foot wrong through out and looks ready to start games, even alongside Song.

He is a similar player to Song like Miyaichi is with Walcott but he does possess strength, awareness and positioning. Wins the ball and passes it. Pure and simple.

We do need to strengthen the defence. It was very shaky today, as always.

Let's see what happens in the transfer market, both in and out....

Interesting. I thought Nasri worked pretty hard considering the game was dead by then. The commentators mentioned it as did other people I spoke to.
Miyaichi looked good but you can't judge him from 60 odd mins against what is effectively division 1 opposition
And judging Frimpong on the basis of 45 mins in the 2nd half is really risky too.
