Campbell scored. He assisted. He tracked-back. He had a fast mind unlike Iwobi.

It's the same as Wenger keeping Walcott and sending Lucas on loan, or starting Sanogo ahead of Podolski against Bayern.

Our manager is an embarrassment.

This and exactly this. He has absolutely abysmal technique shooting, but he can make good short passes. Don't even ask him to try mid range or long range passes cos he can't kick the ball with his instep.

His movement is good and his interplay can be good (see short passing) but he can't cross the ball and has no end product and is a pointless player. Its Wenger's fault for believing in the player but the player is NOT Arsenal quality and never will be. There is nothing of note I see potential-wise to suggest he will be any different to Justin Hoyte or any of the other youngsters that came in over their head.

it seems all we train is short passing interacting play. Its no coincidence none of our youngsters can shoot or cross well. Also none of them is good in the air

Iwobi looks neat and tidy to me, but very rarely does he have end product to his game. He seems to lack the edge to be a game changer. He may become a good squad player, perhaps.

In fact, I saw more potential in Joel Campbell in a smaller sample size than what I've seen in Iwobi.

Kite33, the type of fan who would come on the board to say "Hi haters" when Chamberlain would score 1 of his 4-5 goals a season.

Well, he's out and the team does not miss him. And we won't miss Iwobi either when Arsenal, after 8-10 years of non performance, will finally give up on him.

"Hi haters" and "careful what you wish for" should be banned from being used on this board.

2 goals on Argentina - fact
2 goals on a depleted Messi-less Argentina - also fact

Looking forward to see Iwobi to score a brace against City, Spuds, Chelsea, United... then I will be impressed.

To be clear: I do see "some" potential in Iwobi and he could turn out to be a great player one day. For the time being, he's not that impressive, has a lot work on and 2 goals against Argentina, which is a very nice achievement, doesn't prove anything and does not silence anyone. It's a ridiculous thing to say.
