He can't even get in their starting lineup yet... give him time.

He hasn't even started a league game yet - jesus let's not get carried away..

... Still remember so many of here fuming when we sold Benik 'the new Drogba' Afobe after a few good performances in League 1 & Championship.

He's Having a Better time than the Brazillian Martinelli, I'll tell you that,

We should Def see him STARTING in the Europa League match this week,

Otherwise what was the point?

(He is also a good lad, just like Eddie, always willing to Fight for the team, & always looking for the goal....assist is not really at the forefront of their mind, but they are team players still! that tend Naturally towards the goal.)

He's a goal scorer in the mould of Ian Wright.
I thought we got our Arsenal back - but we got Emery

Still worry about his physical potential

Big year for him in that regard

Agreed.

However, it's worth remembering that, when Lacazette first arrived, he barely lasted for an hour and got eaten alive by most defenders. Within a space of a year, he became one of the hardest-working and most physically imposing ~5'9'' forwards in the league.

It remains to be seen whether Nketiah can make such physical transformation, but contrary to Lacazette, he is much younger, meaning he has more time on his side to develop his physique.

Absolutely. This loan keeps consistent next season I’d have him starting all cup and early stage Europe games.

I'm really pissed off with Leeds, they got a striker who could get them over the line this season and into the PL and yet they won't start him especially in the league. If Eddie would get more game time at Arsenal (Europa, Worthless Cup and League as sub), than he has at Leeds so far then the loan isn't working IMO.

The worst thing about this is Bamford, who is a bang average journeyman Championship Striker is keeping Eddie out of the team.

I understand we can recall in January, and would exercise that clause if he isn't one of the first names on the Leeds teamsheet by then.

Eddie didn't play for Leeds' u23 against Crewe yesterday.

This could mean that he'll be in Leeds squad for their home game against WBA tonight.
